Ever since the first details emerged regarding the remaster of the first Modern Warfare game and it’s association with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the only question that’s been on the mind of majority of the fanbase is whether the game will be available for purchase and playable separately from Activision’s latest sci-fi venture. And what could possibly be an important detail as to how you’ll play Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s remastered version has officially come to light and you may not like what’s in store.
As one of the most prominent of Call of Duty fan-sites, Charlie Intel, spotted, Modern Warfare Remastered’s website has been officially updated with a rather self-explanatory line of text that suggests you will most probably need the Call of Duty Infinite Warfare disc inserted into your console or PC to be able to play the game. As was announced previously, Modern Warfare Remastered is a digital-only game that is only available through the purchase of Infinite Warfare’s premium editions, which start at $80(Approx Rs. 5000).
Modern Warfare Remastered is a full game download (game disc must be inserted to play Modern Warfare Remastered). Internet connection required.
states the official website.
Charlie Intel further reported that this condition would not apply to those who’ll be buying Infinite Warfare digitally as they’ll not own a physical disc(obvious!!).
One of the main reasons why Activision is requiring you to insert the Infinite Warfare physical disc to be able to play Modern Warfare Remastered is that the action would eliminate the possibility of people selling their copy of the game and continuing to be able to play Modern Warfare Remastered.
Activision’s Raven Software is responsible for remastering history by working on Modern Warfare Remastered, while Infinity Ward, the other Activision-owned studio, is working on Infinite Warfare. The game launches on November 4 for all next-gen capable platforms(PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC). You can also play Modern Warfare Remastered’s campaign on PS4 30 days early if you’ve preordered one of the game’s premium versions.
So Lock n’ Load.
