The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare multiplayer servers are now officially online, allowing those very lucky players that have managed to get early copies of the game to play the game’s multiplayer before anyone else. This comes three days before the game actually comes out on this Friday, November 4.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer beta ended around a week ago for both the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One after several weeks worth of playtesting, which has continued even in the face of the releases of other hotly-anticipated shooters, in the forms of Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2.
Whether the beta changed anyone’s minds on whether they’re going to play the game or not, it’s likely people are less concerned with the Infinite Warfare multiplayer servers and more with the Modern Warfare Remastered servers, especially considering that the two games are unable to be bought separately.
The Infinite Warfare multiplayer servers are likely intended to both test the servers before release and also to allow journalists and well-known internet personalities with early copies to get a feel for the game and start writing their reviews for the game before it comes out.
Activision wanting to test out the Infinite Warfare multiplayer servers might also be to make sure that the servers can’t be DDOS’d on release day, like what happened to Battlefield 1 several weeks ago when the internet got hit with a DDOS attack that caused connectivity problems for Battlefield 1 PS4 players along with other websites like Twitter.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered will be coming out on November 4, this Friday, but whether Activision can overtake EA’s extremely popular Battlefield 1 remains to be seen. While Modern Warfare was one of the most popular Call of Duty games, will it still be enough for Infinite Warfare to turn a profit?
