All sixteen of the original Modern Warfare multiplayer maps will be included in the Modern Warfare Remastered, if you need any sort of incentive to pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition or Legacy Editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Previously it was announced that only 10 maps would be included but now it seems that number has been upped.
Modern Warfare multiplayer catapulted Call of Duty’s multiplayer into becoming the direct competitor to the Battlefield games, which had previously been one of the biggest parts of online first-person shooter multiplayer alongside other games like Halo, Team Fortress 2, and more.
While you will get all sixteen maps from the beginning if you pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition or Legacy Editions of Infinite Warfare, otherwise you’ll only be getting ten to start with. The other maps will be coming out in December, for free.
These maps include a variety of beloved Modern Warfare multiplayer maps, including Backlot, Crash, Overgrown, Bog, and Crossfire. The game will also include the full Modern Warfare campaign, beginning the story of Soap McTavish and Captain Price and the devastating world events of the Modern Warfare series.
Unfortunately the game won’t be sold as a separate product, instead coming out alongside Infinite Warfare (hey, Activision has to get sales somehow) on November 4 on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. In addition to the multiplayer maps, the game also has received a sizable graphical upgrade that improves the lighting, water effects, explosions, and more.
While Activision has gotten a lot of flak for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, especially compared to its most direct competitor Battlefield 1, which went backwards in time to World War 1, Infinite Warfare will likely still sell well due to it and Modern Warfare being tied together.
And since it’s only the beginning of September and the game doesn’t come out until November, Activision at least has a good amount of time to make the game seem appealing.
