Being developed by Infinity Ward, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare bids Earth farewell and takes the war to space. Although franchise’s previous iterations – Call of Duty: Ghosts – had some focus on space warfare, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare takes it to another level.
Aside from this, there are plenty of new weaponry, gadgets, and gameplay mechanics to play around. However, if you are rooting for something different that you have not seen in past Call of Duty games, you are in for a disappointment.
A few of the new gadgets include a spider-like explosive mine that when placed on the ground will dash towards nearby enemy, cling to him, and explode. We also witness a shotgun that would mark different limbs of an enemy while using ADS and target them all at the same time.
The game’s main protagonist was also shown in possession of a shield that can be used for both defensive and offensive maneuvers. When outside combat, your squad mates will ask you of things like breaching a door, clearing an area, taking initiative – basically everything you have experienced in previous Call of Duty games!
Flight mechanics and space battles work nicely with gravitational effects that force you to be careful with your movement and where you land. I was personally hoping for Infinite Warfare multiplayer reveal, but looks like we will have to wait a little longer.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is scheduled to release on Nov. 04, 2016 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
