War has moved into the solar system.Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is set in space, after Earth expands into the solar system.
Video game publisher Activision showed off more of the gameplay in zero gravity today at the Sony press event, a lead-in to the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show this week in Los Angeles.The demo started with a space pilot on a base.
He takes off in a twin-seat space fighter and takes off into space, where he finds a gigantic space battle going on.
All the while, he takes out enemies with precision.He uses homing grenades and other high-tech weapons to dispatch the space-suited defenders.
But Activision is being careful in describing the game as a military shooter at heart, not a sci-fi game.On top of that, Activision is launching a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the Infinity Ward title that debuted back in 2007.
These announcements should go over well with the community of 40 million monthly active users excited about the next installments in the annual franchise, which has generated more than $15 billion over the past decade.Infinity Ward will have had about three years to work on the game by the time it ships, as owner Activision now has three studios working on the game — including Sledgehammer Games maker of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Treyarch creator of last year s Call of Duty: Black Ops III .
