Those who Pre-ordered the digital version of Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered: Legacy edition on PlayStation 4 will be able to enjoy the campaign from next week. It will be unlocked on October 5, for everybody else however you will have to wait until the games official launch date in November when the multiplayer will also become available to PlayStation 4 players. Ahead of next weeks release further details have been released about Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Remaster.
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered developer Raven have been working to bring fans the much loved title and have been talking about some of the finer details that comes after receiving feedback from those who were able to get hands on with the game at last months Call of Duty XP event.
Via Twitter, Lead designer Amos Hodge clarified a few points that the community had raised. First off the original announcer who’s voice graced the original game is returning to the front line for the remaster which is like music to my ears as getting the sound right is as important as getting the gameplay right in my eyes.
#MWRemastered will have the original MP announcer VO for the original modes.

Whilst we are on the subject of Audio, Hodge also confirmed that they had updated the sounds for the Barrett, Desert Eagle, RPD, and M40A3 to more closely match the sounds the weapons made in the original game.

Private matches will have all equipment weapons, attachments, perks, and kill streaks unlocked so gamers can fully customise their private match experience to their own needs. Strafe jumping will also be making a return and indeed Raven have said that movement should match the original COD 4 game.
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered will also include all playlists from the original game plus a host of new ones to enjoy which will be interesting. Raven have added the Medal system to the game too as well as a new weapon inspect animation that can be activated by holding down on the d-pad.
Perhaps the biggest news coming from Hodge though was some concerning news that he conveyed via his twitter feed which you can see below. Strange happenings indeed.
The label said chocolate muffin, but I am confident that I just had cake for breakfast.

In all seriousness though it’s all positive news coming from the team behind Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered and so long as the ‘ping’ headshot noise is present then I’ll be happy. The Remaster will launch with 10 maps: Ambush, Backlot, Bog, Crash, Crossfire, District, Downpour, Overgrown, Shipment, Vacant with the others following towards the end of the year as free DLC.
I know people are still annoyed with the game being bundled with Infinite Warfare but the way I’m looking at it now is that I’m getting a game I sunk days or weeks worth of game time into and on top of that I’m getting a new one that is actually beginning to look pretty good now that they seem to be capable of putting out proper trailers.
After being disappointed by a few titles this year I at least know what to expect from Call Of Duty Infinite warfare and even if that turns out to be a disaster then my new, old friend Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered will be there to console me. Consider me fully on board the hype train and I’ve saved some seats if you want to hop aboard. Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered releases alongside Infinite Warfare on November the 4th on PlayStation, PC and Xbox One.
