Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
One of the most exciting action franchises in the industry appears once again with another epic story. It's not easy developing so many war games maintaining the same basic formula, and that's the main job of Call of Duty developers, and since they ran out of past wars, they traveled to the future once again. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, released for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One, attempted to take a step forward for the series while retaining all the usual stuff, but did it actually deliver?
About the game
The year is 2080, and after the nations of the Earth joined forces to create the USA (United Nations Space Alliance) to expand to the whole Solar System, and exploit resources from different planets. When colonizing the planets, leaving settlements and establishing like countries. While the exploration continues, a new enemy appears, the Settlement Defense Front, led by Admiral Salen Kotch.
The SDF parted ways with the USA and established as an independent nation, in the now militarist regime of Mars, and starts an immense armed conflict. The story will be centered on Nick Reyes, a member of the Space Combat Air Recon and captain of the Retribution. Reyes will have to lead his team in the battle against the SDF. This mission will take him to a battlefield beyond earth and even into space battles. While doing this, hidden motives will appear, secrets will be uncovered and a lot of blood will be shed, to keep the Earth safe.
A pleasant surprise
It seems that Call of Duty has a weird relationship with futuristic battlefields. Not only are they becoming more and more popular in their games, but they also are getting more futuristic each time. The previous title, Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 was nice, however, its campaign didn't impress that much. It lacked a lot of innovation and originality. On the other hand, Infinite Warfare is taking a risky move into the future.
Being close to becoming a science fiction game or a space opera, the futuristic war scenario of Infinite Warfare delivers. It strikes as a pleasant surprise of innovation in an otherwise tired franchise. The game develops smoothly and innovates a lot, definitely a much-needed step forward for the series.
Call of Duty Infinite Warfare was a bold move for the series, going for a completely futuristic scenario and adding more artistic value than ever before in the franchise. Not only is the story amazing, but every scene has cinematic value, which is certainly a nice touch. The cast does an excellent job breathing life into the characters, and the script is simply amazing. It would seem that becoming a science fiction series could be a natural evolution for the series now.
The multiplayer, one of the most important elements in every Call of Duty game, is nicely worked. Even though it wasn't as innovative as the main story, it’s pretty similar to what we're already pretty used to.
Graphics and Visuals: The visual part of this game is simply beautiful. Not only are the effects on screen and graphics amazing, but the scenery is incredible. Creating amazing space battlefields, excellent animations, fluid transitions and an excellent art direction overall for this title.
Gameplay: The gameplay shares a lot with pretty much every other game in the series. However, the zero-gravity missions, space battles, and futuristic additions come in flawlessly into the game. The story mode feels rich to play and the multiplayer is excellent.
Sound: While you can usually take for granted the action music in these games, this one adds the sci-fi element to it in the most natural way. The sound design of the space scenes is genius and the voice acting is incredible too.
