Modern Warfare Remastered is being developed by Raven Software, not the original game's creators Infinity Ward, Activision has confirmed. Instead, Infinity Ward are acting as executive producers on the project.
Modern Warfare Remastered features a fully remastered version of Call of Duty 4's campaign and online multiplayer, with 10 multiplayer maps thrown in, including Crash, Backlot and Crossfire.
"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered boasts vibrant current generation visuals, with fully improved texture resolution and detail, high-dynamic range lighting, lit and shadowing VFX particles, revamped animation and audio, stunning sound and much more," says Activision.
"Fans will relive the full, iconic campaign as they’re transported around the globe with Capt. Price, Gaz and Soap across all the missions from the original game, including “All Ghillied Up,” “Charlie Don’t Surf,” and “Crew Expendable.” Players will also experience the online multiplayer mode that redefined Call of Duty by introducing killstreaks, XP, Prestige and more, and battle head-to-head in 10 fan-favorite maps from the original multiplayer mode, including classics such as “Crash,” “Backlot” and “Crossfire.”
“The original Modern Warfare raised the bar on video games and forever will be remembered as one of the best," added Raven's studio head Brian Raffel. "It’s an honour to be developing the remaster and we are committed to faithfully remastering this classic for Call of Duty fans."
Modern Warfare Remastered was announced this morning alongside Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and comes included with Infinite Warfare's Legacy Edition, Digital Legacy Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition and Legacy Pro Edition. The first footage can be seen from the 2:59 mark in the video below.
