Infinite Warfare Space Dogfights

Remember how Infinity Ward had promised that Call of Duty Infinite Warfare fans who have played Black Ops 3 will instantly feel at home as far as the game’s movement system is concerned? Well it appears that despite the similarities, there are going to be some mind-bending new mechanics at play! Infinite Warfare Space Dogfights and Wall-Sticking Mag Boots have been confirmed.

We know that Black Ops 3 neither had space based dogfights nor did it have any gadgetry that would let you walk upside down on what could be the inside of a roof. That is exactly what you are going to get this time.

Infinite Warfare Space Dogfights, Wall-Sticking Mag Boots Confirmed

Jacob Minkoff, the design director at Infinity Ward was recently talking about some of the prominent aspects of the game, in a clear attempt to make up for the negative publicity that it has had thanks to the YouTube dislikes campaign.

He clarified that when space combat was mentioned it did not mean some fleeting experiences that might not be at the core of the game. Infinite Warfare has in-depth space based dogfight mechanics:

You’ll engage in different kinds of air combat throughout the campaign. There are open dogfighting arenas with full freedom of flight in all directions, where you will take part in battles against both capital ships and enemy fighters, as well as exciting on-rails attack runs.

Not only that, he mentioned some really exciting gadgets you are going to get apart from the Infinite Warfare space dogfights. The game is also going to have mag-boots that will stick to a surface regardless of its orientation and let you walk.

Minkoff was talking about grapples and RCS thrusters when he mentioned the mag-boots:

As a SCAR, a spec-ops soldier trained to fight in space, you have the use of a grapple and RCS thrusters on your suit. These allow you to quickly cross open spaces and get cover. Once you find a good vantage point, you have mag-boots that allow you to lock onto surfaces no matter which way they are oriented.

All these details combined with the fact that pro-players among the COD community are helping in shaping up the multiplayer suggest that the hatred that Infinite Warfare is getting might be out of place for being too early.

What do you make of the Infinite Warfare space dogfights, mag-boots and other features in the same line?

Thanks, Forbes.
