Looks like Infinity Ward plan on taking full advantage of the game’s setting.
With Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty has now finally shed its military trappings and gone full science fiction- and it looks like developers Infinity Ward are ready to embrace that setting, and utilize it fully and thoroughly to deliver a unique Call of Duty experience unlike any we have had so far.
Speaking to GamingBolt, Infinity Ward’s Brian Horton discussed, for instance, how the weapons in the new game will be ‘energy based,’ and how they will be unique to the Call of Duty franchise as a whole.
“Our energy weapons are completely unique to this franchise; but there are a mix of weapons that you are accustomed to: ballistic weapons as well as energy weapons,” Horton said. “The energy weapons each have their own uses and functions. But one of the things we’re really excited about are some of our advanced sights which allow the player to do things, like, with a shotgun they’ll be able to manipulate where their pellets are going to go. The pellets will have maximum effect on the enemy. We really wanted to use the advance sights as a way to augment the weapons that are both energy weapons as well as ballistic.”
Basically, it sounds like there will be far more variety in the arsenal of weapons available to players this time around than there ever has been before- which is not something that I can complain about. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is due out in November this year on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
