According to a new tweet by Raven Software employee Amos Hodge, players will be hearing a bit of nostalgia in the multiplayer for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered. According to the tweet, the original Modern Warfare multiplayer announcer will be making a return to the game, so depending on your faction you’ll be hearing the same voices from the original game.
This means that players will be hearing announcers from the British Special Air Service, the Marines, Imran Zahkaev’s Russian Ultranationalist terrorists, and Khaled Al-Asad’s OpFor troops. This will cause one of the first things Modern Warfare did with multiplayer, the personalized announcers, to be just like they were in the old days-literally.
One of the main problems that some fans have had with the possibility of a remastered Modern Warfare game is that a remastering might get rid of a lot of things that gamers think made the original game great. Apparently, this includes the Modern Warfare multiplayer announcer.
Considering that the Modern Warfare multiplayer component finally brought Call of Duty to a competitive level with Battlefield, the Modern Warfare multiplayer announcer might hold a special place in the game-playing hearts of many Modern Warfare multiplayer gamers.
While the graphics of Modern Warfare remastered will be substantially upgraded, players can likely expect everything else about one of the Call of Duty series’s most popular entries to remain the same, ranging from the voice-acting to the level structure and, now, the multiplayer announcer’s voice.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered will be coming out on November 4, packaged with Infinity Ward’s newest Call of Duty offering Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
While the decision to package both together (with no possibility of making them separate purchases) may be unpopular for some, getting two games for the price of one can’t be all bad, right?
