In many ways, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare looks to be a departure from the series’ traditional stomping grounds and identity- certainly, the space setting was different enough to cause an immense amount of outrage and backlash against the game back when it was first revealed earlier this year. However, in other ways, it will still end up being the Call of Duty we all know and love.
One of those ways will be the story. Speaking to GamingBolt exclusively, Infinity Ward’s Brian Horton discussed the story conceit of Infinite Warfare, and, well, it’s Call of Duty as we’ve known it for so many years, all right.
“Our focus was to try and tell a character-driven story of a band of brothers; so Lt. Reyes is surrounded by a cast of fully fleshed out squad mates of which make up the fighting force that has to defeat this settlement defense front,” Horton said. “So your characters are going to help you in an A.I. capacity as well as further our narrative throughout the game. So they are going to play pivotal roles all throughout the story mode itself.”
Sounds all okay to me. Some things, maybe, simply should not change. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this November.
