Infinity Ward has revealed that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s campaign will feature a seamless transition feature that allows players to move from on the ground missions to space combat and back with few or no loading screens.

Many parts of the campaign – from boots-on-the-ground, to piloting a jet fighter, to zero-g and space combat – will occur as a near seamless, action packed experience with few visible loading times, and delivers the signature, blockbuster franchise moments that fans love.

In a follow up interview with IGN, Jacob Minkoff (Infinity Ward’s Design Director) stated that these new transitions provide for a “completely holistic” experience for the players.

Specifically, he said, “you can be boots on ground, fighting through the streets of a city on earth, call down your Jackal, get into it, fly up through the atmosphere, engage in a dogfight over the orbit of earth, finish that dogfight, land on the deck of the carrier, get into the carrier, go up to the bridge, and order your ship to go to the next mission and all of it happens seamlessly with no loading screens.”

  1. So this is kind of my idea of how the story is gonna be(feel free to add your thoughts)
    The SDF are good military organization at first send to different planets in order to create human settlements by building cities and creating protection for humans etc etc…Their commanding officer goes rogue and with him the entire SDF(as Reyes said,Military radicals) and they from other planets use their resources to build warships etc and attack the earth,take over The SATO defense grid which protects whole of earth. We play as SCAR(Naval spec Ops force) along with our team mates Reyes,Rodriguez,Saltner(The sarkeesian) and we the player. And then its upto us along with SATO,UNSA to get rid of SDF from earth and destroy their warships in space and other planets.I think this is what they mean by you can choose your missions on the go and fight with your Jackal seamlessly.

    • You must have the original xbox 360. Well good news for you Infinite Warfare won’t be on last gen so now you won’t get the red ring of death. Cheers M8!

      • Trust me. My PS4 almost sets fire after playing Zetsubou No Shima, and it’s brand spankin new. I just got it a month ago because I gave my other one to my brother

        • Well if you haven’t already heard the news a new ps4 is coming out with better hardware. I got my ps4 a year ago but if you just bought you’re ps4 I feel bad for you. GG

    • “I don’t know anything about technology so I’m going to project lies so that my twisted agenda is forced on other people”

  2. No loading screens just means hidden loading screens really, we’ve seen it all before. With this it seems like the transition from atmosphere to space will be where the loading screen is hidden. It’s an old trick.

    • True…its actually loading the assets for the planet in the background but all games with “No Loading Screens” do that to be fair.

    • Yeah, just like the Going Hunting mission in Battlefield 3. Up through the cloud cover, then screen goes white for about 5 or so seconds before the next part loads up and the cloud cover disappears.

  3. Wow i have to say if they execute this Campaign properly when it comes to the story and actually making it a somewhat grounded mature tale without any cheesy Antagonists(Rorke) and make the Antagonists have proper motivation for their deeds it could turn out to be one of the most memorable ones to date…BO3 was crap….AW was too predictable, so lets see what IW can cook up with Infinite Warfare.

    • AW was so fucking predictable even when it was revealed… Kevin Spacey saying ”and that’s where i come in” was so obvious

  4. (Felt like reposting this on other threads)
    It’s funny how people are like, “I’m only buying this for cod 4.” But then you’ve probably haven’t even played cod 4. I’ve been playing cod since cod 3 on the mother fucking wii xD, and I’ve adapted. Don’t get me wrong, AW was one of if not the worst cods in the franchise, but it wasn’t terrible, it was just the ‘worst.’ This cod looks great so far, and I bet the multiplayer will be great too. Bo3 isn’t bad, the hitdetection and lag compensation is utter bs, but when everything works it becomes a truly wonderful game. Trust me, I’m just as excited as most of you are for cod 4, but then (for those of you that have played it) you will come to realize it’s all nostalgia. I went back to play cod 4 on the pc a while ago and it was the most basic game ever! Cod 4 now is literally a browser fps flash game XD. So many games are based off the cod 4 formula because of it’s success and cod 4 now is just boring. I’ll play the remaster and let the nostalgia sink in, but when it’s gone it’s gone. I just hate it when people don’t let themselves have their own opinions and just let others think for them. Here’s a tip, be yourself, don’t let others choose what you should think, or who you should be. I have a feeling IW has done a great job with this game. I’m hyped!

  5. This isn’t open world MMO. Loading screens are fine. I loved the mission briefings in Modern Warfare series for example.

  6. No Mans Sky – visit hundreds of planets on a seamlessly endless universe.

    Infinite Warfare – no loading screens.

    LMAO at how pathetic Call of Duty has become.

  7. Slowly and slowly I’m taking in everything and processing it and what I get is that it’s semi open world but with a forced campaign at the same time
