Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered Won't Be Sold on Its Own
It's only included with premium versions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
If you were thinking you might skip this year's new Call of Duty game, Infinite Warfare, and simply play the remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, think again. The newly announced remaster will only be available in a bundle with certain versions of Infinite Warfare--you can't buy it on its own.
That's according to a new FAQ posted by Activision about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, as it's called. Your only way of getting your hands on it will be by purchasing the Legacy, Legacy Pro, or Digital Deluxe edition of Infinite Warfare.
These are the three premium versions of the game that will be available, and they're priced accordingly. That means you'll be paying at least an extra $20 to secure a copy of Modern Warfare Remastered.
Here's what each of those three versions costs and includes:
- Legacy Edition/Digital Legacy Edition ($80): Includes both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
- Digital Deluxe Edition ($100): Includes Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Season Pass
- Legacy Pro Edition ($120): Includes Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, Season Pass, collectible steelbook, official game soundtrack and additional digital items
Modern Warfare Remastered consists of the full Modern Warfare campaign--complete with new and improved graphics--and a portion of its multiplayer mode. Specifically, 10 "fan favorite" maps from the game will be included, such as Crash, Backlot, and Crossfire. The other seven maps will be announced "soon."
The remaster is available as a digital game for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. This leaves open the possibility that you could purchase one of the physical versions of Infinite Warfare and then sell it after redeeming the key for Modern Warfare. However, we don't yet know if Activision intends to prevent this from happening by forcing players to access Modern Warfare through Infinite Warfare.
Modern Warfare Remastered, which is being developed by Raven Software, was announced today at the end of the trailer above, the majority of which reveals Infinite Warfare. For more on that game, head to our recap of everything we know so far.
