Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a divisive game, to put it somewhat lightly. The series, which has sold tens of millions of copies every single year, is taking the bold leap into the much more distant future. This has led to a lot of fan anger and skepticism about how this latest entry will be received. While we prepare our full, official Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare review, I wanted to get out my initial impressions as soon as possible. Below you’ll find a video where I go over the campaign and multiplayer in a more broad and generalistic sense.
The gist of the whole video is that this is still very much a Call of Duty game. While the setting and plot have taken a huge step into new territory, Infinity Ward kept the core of the gameplay experience the same. That isn’t to say that there aren’t new elements to be found here. The campaign especially has new stuff scattered around it. I explain some of these in the video, but for a more comprehensive rundown, keep checking back for the final review.
The multiplayer especially remains the same Call of Duty action that fans expect. Recent entries have altered the movement mechanics in a lot of ways, and Infinite Warfare takes those innovations and keeps them intact. There isn’t a big standout alteration found here, with the game still having you pick between characters, though these are customizable and more generic, and giving you certain powerups and perks to choose from.
Overall the multiplayer remains the same tight, controlled action that fans have come to expect, though the settings are certainly more vivid this time around. Check out the video below for more of my thoughts, along with some exclusive gameplay footage. And be sure to come back very soon for the full review.
