Get a look into what Activision is calling the “rich narrative” behind Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
A deeper storyline for Infinite Warfare?
Not that Call of Duty games have had no story over the years, far from it, but they haven’t been the deepest either. And I say that as someone who usually enjoys his yearly sojourn into the military-themed world of CoD.
Out of all of them, the Black Ops games have probably had the best narratives, with decent characters and some compelling situations. Well, them and Modern Warfare 2. Kind of a genre classic right there. That might be about to change though, as publisher Activision is really playing up the campaign’s story for Infinite Warfare.
Story quality aside, this is also the most sci-fi themed CoD yet. Expect space battles, and a relatively far-future setting that’ll probably remind you of Halo, Killzone, and a few other properties all wrapped up in one game. From the trailer, it’s also set to have some absolutely spectacular visuals.
So with that in mind, it certainly would benefit from a solid story. Fingers crossed, but it honestly looks damn good so far and I’m liking what I’m seeing. You’ll get more than just hints at narrative in this new trailer too.
A pair of actors make their in-game debuts today. We get our first looks at both Kit Harrington and Conor McGregor as Admiral Salen Kotch and Captain Bradley Fillion respectively. Both characters work for the Settlement Defense Front in the game. They’re decidedly villains, and the SDF is basically the Martian separatist government. Yes, I said Martian. Just scroll down and hit play.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, from Activision and Infinity Ward, hits consoles and the PC on November 4th. PS4 gamers can get in on the multiplayer beta quite a bit early, on October 14th, if they pre-order.
