For the first time in the franchise’s history, a Call of Duty game will be set in the solar system, Activision have revealed.
Unveiled on Bank Holiday Monday, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be set beyond the reaches of Earth into the vast expanse of the solar system and will see players captain their own warship.
“This year, we’re both honouring the heritage of Call of Duty while taking players to incredible new heights,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.
“Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a bold, new vision from the studio that created the original Call of Duty and Modern Warfare, and an adventure on an insanely epic scale that only Call of Duty could deliver.”
In a desperate time of overwhelming adversity, the player, as Captain of their own warship, must take command against a relentless enemy. Experienced soldiers are thrust into extraordinary circumstances that will test their training and reveal their true character as they learn to lead and to make the hard decisions necessary to achieve victory.
Dave Stohl, Studio Head of Infinity Ward, added, “With Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, we are taking Call of Duty to places fans have never experienced in the series.”
“On one hand, this game is the kind of gritty, boots on the ground, visceral war story that Call of Duty is known for. On the other, its future setting takes players on a journey of epic scale and proportions, providing incredible gameplay innovations and new experiences for our fans. This is a grand scale, old-school, all-out war in an epic new-school setting. And it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun.”
Infinite Warfare will also feature high speed space-fighters, new environments, new weaponry, and inventor player abilities.
The game hits stores on November 4th 2016 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
