'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare' takes the fight into space

'Modern Warfare Remastered' is also confirmed.

Following a brief flurry of teaser trailers, developer Infinity Ward has unveiled its next game in the Call of Duty franchise. As expected, it's called Infinite Warfare and takes the series into space with robots, fighter jets and, of course, plenty of high intensity shootouts. Call of Duty has experimented with near-future settings before, but this pushes the concept further with a new foe called the Settlement Defense Front. The trailer starts with an invasion of Earth, before shifting perspective to aerial combat and, finally, an enemy spaceship infiltration. All the while, a cover of Space Oddity plays fittingly (and a little cheesily) in the background.

The trailer confirms the game will be out on November 4th. If you pre-order one of two special editions, you'll also get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, which includes the original campaign and 10 multiplayer maps. Many Call of Duty fans hold the original Modern Warfare in high regard, due to its strong multiplayer and compelling story content. Bundling in such an iconic game should attract a little more interest in a franchise that is, ever so slowly, starting to lose its juggernaut status.
