Call of Duty


 

Fellow EGMer Nick Plessas and I had a chance at Call of Duty XP this year to try out the brand new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. While we didn’t get as much time with it as the new Infinite Warfare, it was still great to get hands-on with Modern Warfare Remastered and go for a trip down memory lane.

I think the biggest take away we got from our hands-on time is just how much Call of Duty has changed over the years. The map design, the damage players could take and dish out, scorestreaks, perks, all of it has seen such drastic overhauls that going back to Modern Warfare Remastered felt like it was a brand new game at this point. Of course, that said, it also felt like it might’ve suffered a little from the lack of bells and whistles we have become accustomed to. As a brief change of pace, however, we had a lot of fun with it, and there’s no denying the impact this game once had on multiplayer, and we can’t wait to go back to it again this fall.
