How Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a Bold Step With a Fun Promise
There is a considerable amount of shooter fans who are hating Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and it could partially be because of the contrast people are making between it’s setting and the setting of Battlefield 1. We agree that it has been a bold step by Infinity Ward and Activision, but it is also a fun and promising bold step.
We know that with its Space Dogfights and Wall-Sticking Mag Boots, Infinite Warfare is going to break out from the circle of its predecessors. It is going to be the first COD game to take on space at such a massive level.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is Bold and Promising
One more thing that excites me about the game is its scale. In case you have not noticed, the game goes beyond any other Call of Duty titles and even Battlefield 1 which revolves around a singular historical event.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, on the other hand talks of “Earth’s last remaining warships” when explaining to us who Captain Reyes is. You are talking about the futuristic United Nations Space Alliance, Earth colonies and the Settlement Defense Front fighting for them. The scale is much larger!
The whole setting brings a fun promise as Earth ceases to be what it is now, we have got fascists in power and life has been pushed even to teh asteroids.
So many of us love Mass Effect, and one thing from the trilogy that has influenced Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the life on Retribution, the warship players will spend time on as their home. This has never happened before in COD, these are new playing grounds with so much richness in them that can add a lot of flavor to the game – if they don’t let go of other elements that make a perfect COD game.
Infinity Ward promises rich emotional arcs suggesting there will be more impact of story on the game, and what makes it better is that there are very few load times in the game.
Last but not the least, let’s not forget that Infinity Ward is the studio that gave us the original COD as well as Modern Warfare, these guys might have seen a little dip with Ghosts but they have potential of turning this into a mega hit. The landscape we are being given has so many possibilities, so many new things that can be mixed with classic Call of Duty to gives us just what we need: a new take on what we already love.
Oh and by the way, this is the first time Infinity Ward is bringing in zombies, so there is that as well. I hope Treyarch lend in their expert advice in that regard, though.
All these things that Infinity Ward is doing, all of them are bold steps… untested waters even, and they have already seen some backlash although we find it out of place.
It is bold to take to space when you know that people could start comparing it with strictly space based games in some areas like StarCraft, Star Citizen and so on. It is bold to goo so much further in the future too, but what else could they have done? Give us what we have already had in the past? Aren’t we already getting that with the Modern Warfare Remaster?
In the end, we have said it previously and we are saying it again that the bashing this game is getting is really baseless at this point because people are yet to get acquainted with so much more about call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and even that part about the graphics is something Infinity Ward recognizes already.
Let’s give it another go shall we?
