You'll need the disc to play 'Modern Warfare: Remastered'

You'll need to keep the 'Infinite Warfare' disc in your console and have a live internet connection.

Folks are salivating at the thought of playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, but the new game it comes with? Not so much. But if you purchased the disc-based version of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in the hope of playing Remastered and slinging the newer title back to Gamestop, we've got some bad news. Activision has mandated that you can't relive the adventures of Soap and Price unless the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare disc is sat in your console and your internet connection is live. Bummer.

In the run up to the game's November 4th launch, Activision has published an updated FAQ revealing the list of restrictions gamers will have to tolerate. For PlayStation users, Remastered will have to be downloaded in its entirety via a voucher code, while those on team Xbox will get the bulk of the game on the disc, but will still need to pull down an update. Those on Steam, meanwhile, will get a key in the Legacy Edition of the title that'll let you play both games and, yes, you still need to have your internet connected for it to work. Thanks, Activision.
