What game modes come in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will feature the original game’s full, iconic story campaign featuring levels such as “All Ghillied Up,” “Mile High Club,” and “Crew Expendable,” as well as classic multiplayer action with 10 fan-favorite multiplayer maps from the original game.

Opshead's Reaction

The full campaign is great news, and expected. At first glance it seems a little shady to only have ten multiplayer maps, but as long as they pick the best ones it is not a big deal. Is anyone really going to be upset if Shipment is left out? Shipment's Mom didn't even like that map.

What multiplayer maps will be available for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered?

The game will feature 10 fan-favorite maps from the original multiplayer mode, including classics such as “Crash,” “Backlot” and “Crossfire.” We will announce the remaining maps soon.

Opshead's Reaction

The three big ones are here, but we will withhold our judgement for when the final list is revealed.

Will Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered come as a separate disc?

No, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is a full game digital download that will be included in the Legacy, Legacy Pro, and Digital Deluxe editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Internet connection required.

Opshead's Reaction

This is disappointing if you love physical media, also not great news if you have no interest in Infinite Warfare.

Will Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered have progression?

Yes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will have a full, standalone multiplayer progression system, with the ability to unlock weapons, perks, weapon attachments, and reach Master Prestige.

Opshead's Reaction

Good to see Modern Warfare is returning as everyone remembers it.

How can I get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is only available through the Legacy, Legacy Pro, and Digital Deluxe editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Opshead's Reaction

Honestly, this isn't the controversy people are making it out to be. How many people are only interested in one, not both, of these games? An extremely vocal minority obviously, but two full games for $80 is a good deal. 

Can I play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered without buying Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare?

No, you must own Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in order to get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

Opshead's Reaction

Nice to see this question three times. Infinite Warfare = Modern Warfare Remastered.

On what gaming systems is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered available?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is only available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Opshead's Reaction

We would be upset if Modern Warfare Remastered could run on last-gen consoles. If you want to play Modern Warfare on Xbox 360, go play Modern Warfare!

Who is developing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is being developed by Raven and executive produced by Infinity Ward.

Opshead's Reaction

Infinity Ward was a little busy with that other thing.

Will my stats from the original Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare carry over to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered?

No, your stats from the original Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will not carry over to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

Opshead's Reaction

Good. Fresh K/D start!

What type of movement system will Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered have?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered’s movement system will stay true to the original game.

Opshead's Reaction

Activision could have put Exo Suits in Modern Warfare to complete the biggest troll joke in recorded history, but it's probably best they left the movement system alone.

Will Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered have dedicated servers?

Yes, it will.

Opshead's Reaction

Good start.
