Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Gets Standalone Release
Ben Sheene / Jun 23rd, 2017 No Comments
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is receiving a standalone release on June 27 for $39.99, Activision announced today.
The game will first be available on PlayStation 4 at retail or through a download via the PlayStation Network. The full campaign and 16 multiplayer maps from the original will be playable in the standalone version. It will not include the Modern Warfare Remastered Variety Map Pack
Modern Warfare Remastered was previously only available through deluxe editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Developed by Infinity Ward, Infinite Warfare took Call of Duty beyond Earth’s atmosphere. Despite the sci-fi setting, the game sported elements from both new and old Call of Duty entries.
Infinity Ward originally released Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 2007. Since then, it has been regarded as one of the best FPS games ever made and a definitive high point for the franchise. Modern Warfare Remastered is developed by Raven Software, who took the original game and enhanced it with full high definition visuals, remastered audio, improved textures, and revamped animations.
Single player and multiplayer are preserved in Modern Warfare Remastered. Activision also released a number of classic DLC maps as free content shortly after the game became available. Despite backlash for not being made available as a standalone release, Modern Warfare Remastered was praised for its quality.
Activision also announced the Call of Duty “Days of Summer” seasonal event to celebrate Modern Warfare Remastered’s standalone launch. This five-week community even begins on June 27 and features in-game giveaways, XP events, and new playlists across multiple Call of Duty games including a new summer-themed map for Modern Warfare Remastered.
Xbox One and PC versions of the standalone Modern Warfare Remastered will be released at a later, unannounced date.
