GameInformer hosted a podcast with Infinity Ward’s Studio Art Director Brian Horton and Design Director Jacob Minkoff. They were asked questions from the community, and they answered many of them.

Side note: there’s no multiplayer details in the podcast. MP details are coming Sept. 2 at Call of Duty XP.

Here’s a summary of some of the details they talked about:

  • You get to chose which missions you want to do in Infinite Warfare, including many side missions.
  • Infinite Warfare features missions on Titan, the moon of Saturn. The game features a mission on Titan. Also mission on an asteroid. As previously noted, the sun plays an effect on that mission.
  • Game stays within our solar system.
  • “It’s not just about the theme of going to space. It’s the fundamental gameplay things we can do.” – Minkoff
  • Majority of the flights you make are dangerous — it’s cutting edge technology.
  • “It’s still Call of Duty. Still feels like something you can relate too.” – Horton
  • Retribution ship takes damage during first mission of the game. This ship is repaired over the course of the game, but still takes more damage throughout the campaign. Traveling through the solar system will bring dangers — engine failures, radiation issues, and more.
  • “Real fundamental gameplay damage.” – Minkoff
  • There are no aliens in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. “Looking at making a plausible future.” – Minkoff
  • SDF is a “brutal” military group; already left Earth over 30 years before Infinite Warfare’s start.
  • The character you play, Reyes, will talk throughout the story. “The story that we’re telling is about what it takes to be the Commander of a military force. He needed a voice.” – Minkoff
  • “Call of Duty is basically it’s own genre now. Each of the three studios have their own flavor.” – Minkoff
  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a new story, separate from Call of Duty: Ghosts.
  • “We are all really inspired by Modern Warfare. I am positive that you will see the DNA of Modern Warfare in our campaign.” – Minkoff
  •  The game is really hardcore, authentic military in space.
  • Jackal is NOT on the rails. Once it’s time to engage in zero-g battles, it a little more scripted to get out of the Jackal. But it’s full control again once you are fighting in the battle.
  • They have not finalized the full progression system in campaign yet, but they are working on adding in cool unlocks for those who complete all the side missions in the campaign.
  • Infinite Warfare’s movement system is “very much in line” with Black Ops 3’s movement system.
  • More on the movement system here.
  • “Will the mechs will playable vehicles?” “Spoilers…” – Minkoff
  • Horton has said that they have been reading the forums regarding feedback.
  • “You make a game you believe in. We work on games for…years. To get you through development without telling anyone, you have to have a strong passion for it. When you release your first reveal…you still have the same passion for it that has been driving you for years…so yeah, everyone sees stuff, but you still have that passion.” – Minkoff
  • “We have a big passionate fan base.” – Horton

    Seems like a lot of strategy is involved, which seems pretty promising imo

  • DeadZombieGaming 12

    I like it.

  • It would be funny if Infinite Warfare ends up being a great fucking game and all the people saying #RIPCOD shit themselves.

    • BradyAlucard

      Hope so.

    • DeadZombieGaming 12

      Then they say #BF1ISBETTER
      i see the future

      • BradyAlucard

        Because physics.

    • why would they poop themselves

    • Element115Will

      ……right….

    • waylay3r

      Even i it ends up beeing a good game i still think it will receive hate just because it has “CoD” in its name and you underestimate the fact that people on internet never admit they were wrong.

      • II3raVeHearT

        There Just Sheep following the HateTrain!

    • TonyMonterey

      The people saying BF1 is better said that BF4 was awesome… until they released the full game. They said Titanfall, BF:Hardline, Evolved, BF:Star Wars all were going to be the next big thing.

      So all I ask is DO NOT PREORDER AND DON”T BUY THE SEASON PASS for BF1 or COD… They wind up giving the stuff away you get for preordering anyway. If you like the game then buy the DLC and Season pass.

          You changed the name!!!!!!!!!!! NOOOOO the comment was awesome!!!!

      • TitanFall and BF4 are pretty fun though.

      • jordanxbrookes

        BF4’s launch was a failure, but it’s a solid game now. I’ve put about 20+ days into BF4 and enjoyed it. I also loved Titanfall, despite it being simple. Looking forward to BF1 and Titanfall 2 🙂

        • BradyAlucard

          EA super fans still try to justify that launch failure to this day.

          • J4MES

            A launch failure is better than the entire game being a failure. A broken Battlefield was still better than Ghosts at the time too. BF4 eventually was fixed and had more content than any other game in its genre and went on to be one of the best experiences in online gaming.

          • BradyAlucard

            Not really the best experience. It’s not like it’s groundbreaking. Even if they fix it a year later, that still doesn’t excuse it; nothing excuses the fact that it happened. Battlefield 4 does not get a free pass.

        • Duke of hazard

          In my opinion the only reason Ghosts beat BF4 was because of the game being a broken mess for the first few months.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Obviously. But for me, I enjoyed Ghosts more than BF4.

    • Mr_ysi42t96

      I wouldn’t be surprised

    • II3raVeHearT

      BF4>BF1
      IW>?

          • I found out I am adopted so I’m trying to forget about ScOott.

    • Ruski Drinks Brewski

      getting on PC then if that’s the case

    • It doesn’t matter if its good, they’ll still keep spamming it because kids are kids.

    • Mr_ysi42t96 (Fazal’s fgt son)

      I did it 😀

    • RdJokr

      Many of them are already shitting themselves after seeing the E3 trailer, so I say there’s a good chance for that. But the MP and Zombies components have to deliver on that front as well. So I sure hope IW has something good planned.

        • RdJokr

          Oh look, the bot changed avatar. How cute.

  • this was all talked about months ago, why are they repeating details we already know

  • hungryandrew

    If this game was so good, why delay and hide multiplayer footage/detail until September? Unless they’re scared by the reaction and are secretly making some changes to multiplayer.

    • djml9

      They didnt delay and hife the reveal. They decided before hand to save the reveal for the big COD fan event.

      • Smayo

        Which is in turn another great let down after Bo3 reveal path. You would think after all the shit IW got already, they want to do everything they can to make the community hyped for their product. Unless they know it will be received poorly…

        so what we got now is;

        Space/futuristic themed CoD (again)
        Thrust jumps/future movement
        no MP reveal whats so ever (until Sep.)
        possibly no BETA
        Low pre-orders compared to Bo3 last year
        and a massive hate for this game already…

        But just stick to the regular plan activision, all will be right….right ?

        • I think it’s a good thing they are doing it in September. If they showed it now and it looks great, people will be hyped for it, but they gotta wait another 5-6 months for the game so their hype will die down. If they show it in September then it’s building up a shit load of buzz around the release.

          • Smayo

            Or the complete opposite of hype. Already on different forums and other (social) media there is alot of talk that the late reveal compared to last year (with Bo3) is because they are changing some MP aspects.
            Also the statement made by IW developers that the game features classic movement just now fuels that hope.

            when the reveal finally shows the MP side of things my fear is the game will get another shit storm over itself, and this time over it’s main selling point, the MP. Unless it’s indeed something totally different then expected now, but I doubt that will happen…

          • jordanxbrookes

            And then when September comes, many will be disappointed for waiting so long. Can’t wait to use my Exo Abilities again! HYPE! HYPE! Lmao.

          • It will be Sexo Abilities to please the horny 12 year olds.

    • II3raVeHearT

      If u dont know they make the campaign 2.5yrs because it have Zero-g Movements thats why they delayed the Mp Reveal to Sept
      which make sense eh?

      • jordanxbrookes

        No, you don’t make any sense, both in logic and grammar.

    • Kevin Deng

      Would you be excited for COD XP without the MP reveal? Without it, It’s pretty much COD Champs and that’s not worthy by itself.

      • Smayo

        A short 2 minute MP trailer now, and a full all out showcase on CoD XP.

        that should been the path IW should’ve took…

        • jordanxbrookes

          Or at least a 10 second MP teaser like they did for Advanced Warfare at the end of the Campaign Story Trailer (which btw was made public at the end of July 2014).

          • Smayo

            Exactly, at least give us a glimps on the MP instead of keeping everybody in the dark.

          • jordanxbrookes

            It’s cos they’re scared to show anything lol but a small glimpse would be great.

    • DeadZombieGaming 12

      I guess they are doin Overwatch style. Beta near release like Overwatch.

    • Mario Rivera

      They want to expose casual people interested in the MP reveal to competitive as well as introduce the people interested in bo3 competitive to cod 2016. They have really thought out this Esports agenda well.

  • Jay Evan

    “We have a big, passionate fanbase”
    You’re goddamn right on that one. Shit, they don’t even know what they want.

    • why are you posting random stuff unrelated to the subject at hand

      • Sentinel

        I mean, why not? They aren’t talking about things I haven’t heard before, just a few details that I can wait to see when the game comes out.

        • because nobody cares about how you do in call of duty, and it’s even worse when it’s unrelated to the subject

          it just screams ” GIVE ME ATTENTION”.

          • Sentinel

            So, why does it concerns you? & is unrealated but still about COD. Unlike the shit that james be posting. & me, seeking attention?? Haha I get all that from my girl young blood, you don’t know why I did it so stop insinuating what you don’t know.

          • I don’t think you understand the concept of a fourm.

  • RdJokr

    These devs are getting super hyped about the campaign. And that makes me hyped as well. They’re bringing so many great changes to the campaign formula.

    But there’s always gotta be that one dude that screams “fuck you, where’s my MP trailer?”…

    • Smayo

      Why should i go full hyped about a 5 a 6 hours campaign on a $60/90 game ?? Changes or not, that’s not why I buy CoD for…

      • J4MES

        Exactly! They were banging on about how BO3 was going to be a revolutionary campaign with tonnes of customisation and unique missions = I finished it in 5 hours 30 minutes on veteran never to be touched again or given a second thought. Everyone was hyped for AW after the campaign footage but look how that turned out! Activision PR is working its magic as usual lol!

      • RdJokr

        Because it’s part of the game? I never understood how people would justify spending $60-$100 just to play MP only on COD. Seems like a waste of money if you don’t even touch campaign or co-op.

        • Mario Rivera

          not if you consider that a lot of these people are putting in (or at least planning to before they realize the game sucks) 25+ days of gameplay. Campaign is over in 4 to 5 hours, the MP aspect literally continues until the day cod servers go offline

          • RdJokr

            You mean until the next 2-3 COD games. Activision doesn’t even bother with shutting down servers anymore, because they know the playerbase will flock in like crazy.

            Don’t get me wrong, MP is great and all, but to spend $60 and only play that? Doesn’t justify the purchase a lot to me. That’s why I tend to stay away from MP-only games, unless they’re reasonably priced.

        • Smayo

          When CoD used to be good (MWseries/Bo1/2 days) I could play the MP until the next CoD on a daily basis. That’s value for your money imo.

          I only played the campaign when my internet was out for whatever reason or when no one was online (didn’t happen that often those days)

          So MP is the most important factor in a CoD game for me, especially since the campaigns in the latest CoD’s are average at best…

  • Sentinel

    Why there isn’t any gameplay leaks yet Charlie Intel!? That’s all I come here for, leaks! Not newssss. I used to like back when ya’ll were 247digitalwarfare…ya’ll used to reveal a lot more leaks!!

    • Michael

      Lol you think these ‘leaks’ are actually leaks? The reason we haven’t had any of these ‘leaks’ is because Activision is keeping the gameplay under wraps or hiding it. All will be revealed in September so wait til then. All these gameplay leaks in the past have been just Activision peddling the material to sites like this and YouTubers but if they aren’t releasing anything to the public, we wont see anything.

      • J4MES

        They’ll probably release more campaign material before September through their usual PR and marketing channels regular as clockwork. The MP will be locked down until then though.

      • Wait for the game to become gold so people can find ways to get the game from the store before the game is allowed to be sold, then and only then will people show gameplay.

        How you don’t know this despite this cycle happening consistently every single year is mind boggling.

    • Ruski Drinks Brewski

      Have you forgotten about a company called ATVI.

      • Sentinel

        I aware of that…I guess they hired professional snipers to protect their premises from insiders.

        • Ruski Drinks Brewski

          Huh?

    • jordanxbrookes

      As if they would post leaks these days with Activision around them.

      • J4MES

        Yep plus any of these so called ‘leaks’ would be done with Activision’s ‘permission’. Kinda reminds me of the ’employee’ who kept allegedly leaking Driftor Advanced Warfare material when it was clearly Activision’s hype train ticket job.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Exactly. The “leaks” these days are just promotional material or information Activision gives to Keshav or Vic. Not actual leaks.

  • Sentinel

    Post up your combat record

    • ..

      • J4MES

        Hacker.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Fuck me m8, you should go Pro.

      • Sentinel

        That’s on your PC, what about on your PS4?

        • My KD used to be 2 something but then I started making sniper montages and it dropped all the way to 0.98, so yeah, I’m kinda embarrassed to show it now.

    • BradyAlucard

      I don’t wanna talk about it mom.

    ”There are no aliens in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. “Looking at making a plausible future.” – Minkoff

    There is a greater chance of extra terrestrial beings in this universe than the ability to be able to hear sound in space. Looks like the staff who made this campaign were the same ones who ruined the Tony Hawk games. Jeez, I’d rather have Sledgehammer making this game tbh.

    • BradyAlucard

      Uh…

    • lunator100hd .

      Then how astronauts hear each other?

    • CoDforever

      There is no sound, it comes from your helmet

    • DeadZombieGaming 12

      There is one thing that bothers me… Star Wars can have sound in space, but if CoD does it, it gets massive hate for bein so.

      • That’s because Call of Duty, isn’t supposed to be SCIENCE FICTION SHOOTER. oh my Jesus blew your mind

        • DeadZombieGaming 12

          Still doesn’t make any fucking sense… Also, Call of Duty is a franchise about war, not about fucking Modern or WW2… Infinite Warfare is a War Game set in space, therefore, it is a fucking Call of Duty game.

          • Comparing Star Wars and Call of Duty is your first mistake. And have you been reading the articles and listening to the Infinity Ward devs or are you just daft? These developers are trying to go for an “hardcore military plausible realistic future in space ” game. All those fucking words. So if they do fuck up something people are going to point it out.

            The fact you even brought in Star Wars and why they dont question it blows my fucking mind.

          • jordanxbrookes

            You could slap the Star Wars brand onto the box art and I’ll believe it’s Star Wars. Infinite Warfare is not Call of Duty.

    • Jay Evan

      If you didn’t have the attention span of a rodent, you’d know that in the E3 gameplay, The character’s helmet makes artificial sound, which makes sense for combat. It’s easy to get shot from behind if you can’t hear your enemies.

  • LEL

    im confoused is infinity warfare dlc for blakc ops 3 or is it new call of duty

    sum ppl keep sayin it new game but it look like bo3 with robots. should i get this tintanfall 2 halo 5 or battlfront

    • lunator100hd .

      You should get minecraft because you are dumb as fuck, see ya.

      • What you saying bro? You saying Minecraft is for dumb fucks? I’ll get my Minecraft squad on you.

    • J4MES

      Get a dictionary instead.

    • jordanxbrookes

      You should get Battlefield 1 😉

      • Aidan

        Why? Looks like another Battlefront.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Didn’t realize a WW1 game looks like a fictional far future game in space. Think the staff at SpecSavers are waiting for you.

          • Aidan

            Sick burn. Bet lots of kids like you in school. anyway, I didn’t say anything about the setting. The gameplay and the overall feel of it remind me of Battlefront.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Not a burn, more of light humour. Oh and calling me a kid is humourous too considering most of you COD fanboys are kids. You said it “LOOKS like another Battlefront”, you didn’t mention how the game feels, so what do you expect I’m going to think.

      • Johnny

        Duh cause I play BO3 and other non COD FPS games too. I’m just here to get my money’s worth on BO3 news. No IW for me.

    • Jay Evan

      Well, because EA fans are assholes who attack other francises, plain and simple.

      • Alex

        Nah, it’s because Call of Duty is rubbish now and only a few supply drop suckers like you are clinging on in the hope that it will be good again. The only reason Infinite Warfare will sell is down to Cod 4 Remastered being dangled.
        The OP didn’t even mention EA so its clear the few butthurt remaining fanboys are crying tears that everyone will move on towards Bf1 and Infinite Warfare will have a lackluster population as it continues to crash into stale mediocrity.
        You can either move on and play better and far more worthy games or continue to ride Activision with one game a year and wasting money on pixels to make you better at the game.

        • Jay Evan

          I never said I supported supply drops.
          The point I was making is that people think Battlefield 1 is a special snowflake of a game, when besides graphics, shows the same limited, gritty feeling of WW2, which is now more limited by taking it back a couple more decades.
          All I see is Battlefield 4 with World War 1 seasoning on it.

      • Johnny

        We’re not attacking, we’re just telling the truth. I don’t understand how people can still support Activision. We already got shafted with supply drops, we can’t enjoy COD Remastered until you pay for uninspired Infinite Warfare, we don’t get our voices heard. But I’m glad a lot of people have seen this BS and moved on. And don’t bother with saying that we haven’t seen multiplayer. It’s the same shit. Seriously compare all of previous CODs. Infinity Ward does not have the balls to change COD.

        • Jay Evan

          If course they can’t change it. Fans will get pissed off because it’s the same thing every year. But asking for change doesn’t mean something is genuinely wrong with multiplayer.
          If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
          And if there are problems with Activision, take it up with them instead of jumping aboard a hatewagon against COD. Treyarch, SHG, and Infinity Ward work to create in their vision, a great game.
          Activision will do anything to make it sell, no matter the cost.

          • Johnny

            …The developers are the ones that implement it? They can always reject Activision’s decisions, but choose not to? That shows you how much they care about their game. Sorry but money talks, not your “create their vision” bs.

          • djml9

            No they cant. Thats like saying you can just ignore when your boss tells you to do something. Thats not how it works. Activision is top dog. Theyre in charge.

          • Jay Evan

            Activision says “put this game in space, that’s what sells.” Infinity Ward then does their best with that setting while still working under budget and time constraints.

        • CoDforever

          First of all, i bet that pic was took when the booth was closed.

          Second of all, lol you think Supply drops are bad? Wait until you get to Battlefields – paid xp boosters, battlepacks, weapon shortcuts, vehicle shortcuts and much, much more. Battlepacks literally lock behind weapon attachments unless you grind the fuck out of each gun. I would rather take supply drops over all that BS any day of the week.

          • Johnny

            Is your brain working? Cause it seems to me that you haven’t played battlefield. And how can you say supply drops are better when you have to pay to get overpowered guns and in battlefield, you work to earn the gun if you don’t want to pay. Seriously, your making the COD community look dumb. Fk off kid.

      • jordanxbrookes

        No, it’s because Infinite Warfare is a joke lmao. Don’t blame other games for being better.

        • Jay Evan

          Different setting =/= Better game

          • Duke of hazard

            Same futuristic setting for 5 years straight = very annoyed fans.

          • Smayo

            Activision laks vision lately…

          • NOVA_POLARIS

            Three years. Black Ops 2 and Ghosts don’t count as futuristic games since it was the same gameplay just with a futuristic skin.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Black Ops 2 = 2025, Ghosts = 2027. Still futuristic, just with BOTG and without the Supply Drop bullshit.

          • Black Ops 2 does count. That was the entire marketing behind and even the CEO of Activision himself said it was the first futuristic game when talking about the dislikes of Infinite Warfare. Just because it doesn’t have advanced movement doesn’t cancel it out

          • Duke of hazard

            I’m talking about setting. People want to go back to WW2 setting for a long time now.

          • CoDforever

            Ghosts was not futuristic

      • Element115Will

        Yet you Activision Dick Riders do the same right? Ok.

      Now it’s just a small gathering where players talk about how many supply drops they’re going to buy!

      • The black ops 2 midnight launch, I was in the line for ages, at Advanced Warfare launch, there was like 7 people there and because they couldn’t give us our copys since it wasn’t midnight yet (it was around 11 pm) they set up a ps4 and advanced warfare so that we could verse each other while we waited.

        • Kiot

          I’ve noticed though, around AW’s time people were forgoing the physical copies and leaning more towards digital. It makes sense, half the time you could preload the games ahead of the launch, but even with a physical copy you STILL had to download the damn game.

          • J4MES

            Physical copies you just install and maybe download any day one patches. Digital games get downloaded/pre-loaded but portions of that still needs to be installed too.

          • Kiot

            Not anymore hardly. I can’t say for PS4, but I know Xbox One and PC physical copies nowadays simply have just the digital code for the game. You’d still have to download the entire game from the marketplace servers

        • J4MES

          Yeah, BO2 was the last one that was truly brilliant. My local store didn’t even bother with Ghosts and the Advanced Warfare one according to the manager was so bad; they didn’t even have enough in the tills to break even on staff wages for the night!

      • jordanxbrookes

        Remember the midnight launch for MW2 in the UK? Hundreds of thousands of fans lined up, people cosplayed as Modern Warfare characters, a red carpet was layed out for the cast and developers, it was hyped up in the news, shops were redecorated to give the MW2 presence etc. Great, great times.

        • J4MES

          Great times they were! I remember queuing outside GAME for 3 hours just chatting with everyone and buzzing. I think I got home at 3am but it was just an incredible night and its a shame with COD becoming less popular and digital media taking over; that we wont have great nights like that anymore. I think Black Ops 2 was the last release that I was truly pumped for.

          • jordanxbrookes

            The last CoD where I would play with friends all the time was Black Ops 2, but my last CoD game that I enjoyed was Ghosts. AW was just AIDs and BO3 is just boring and full of bullshit. No doubt Infinite Warfare will be the same just with some actual hit detection and good connections.

        • The last good midnight launch was Black Ops 2’s and I remember how fun it was, waiting in line and talking to other people about the game.

    • Smayo

      Uff if this is real and not shot at 6am in the morning or something (guy standing there suggests it isn’t) it’s pretty painfull…

      Hope for Activision and IW this isn’t a taste for CoD XP interest…. I bet they hitting their head in frustration at ATVI HQ over this game…

  • I’m still really curious how these side missions are going to work. This has the potential of making this a really long campaign, which would be great.

    • Probably just repetitive stuff

      • DeadZombieGaming 12

        Well, we know about 2 side mission types already… Ship Assault pretty much and some other spooky kind of mission that Drift0r mentioned was a side mission

  • Weeb Trash

    >The game is really hardcore, authentic military in space

    I’m sorry I just laughed hard, but how exactly?

    • djml9

      You take the elements of a normal hardcore, authentic military game, an put it in space. Its really simple. Its not a tonal change, its a setting change.

    • Jay Evan

      Think of it as hardcore authentic military. But in a different setting. Woah. That’s impossible unless it goes at least 50 years into the past.

    • Aidan

      What part of that wasn’t clear?

    • Call of Duty Waifu

      Reply to All:

      I’m sorry but Call of Duty is always anything but Hardcore nor Authentic. I might be wrong though in IW’s case.

  • BATTLEFIELD HAS WON

    Battlefield 4 has passed the 26m unit sales mark meaning it has sold more copies than Ghosts, Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3. Not only is it the best fps money can buy but it is also the biggest selling in recent years. Battlefield 1 will grab both crowns whilst Infinite Warfare will be just as bad as Ghosts. You can either leave your supply drops and come to the party or forever tie yourself to the commercial machine that is Activision and continue to waste your money and get nothing in return. Cod is long dead yet Battlefield just keeps on going from strength to strength. If you’re scared, don’t worry; you’ll have 31 other players by your side instead of 5 other quickscopers doin montages lol!

    • lunator100hd .

      I knew your comment would be ass before i read!

    • Jay Evan

      gr8 b8 m8 I r8 2/8

    • I’m pretty sure BO3 passed the 35m mark

      • COD has been the most sold game every year, so how can Battlefield 4 top all 3 cod games when they all were most sold of the year.

      • J4MES

        Doubt it. Activision don’t release the unit sales figures any more due to lower performance but do mitigate the embarrassment by announcing revenue which includes supply drops. Activision have only said BO3 has sold ‘significantly’ better than AW and Ghosts but that doesn’t mean anything without figures and if BO3 did sell 35m; they would announce that as it would be the biggest selling COD game ever. It is estimated to have sold 25m into retail though but with stacks still on the shelves, it’s impossible to tell how many have bought the game as Activision censor that info now.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Funny how ever since after Ghosts released I haven’t heard or seen any actual sales figures from Activision about these “innovating” Call of Duty games, just that it’s “selling well” or “selling better than previous” or “sales are high”. Obvious PR crap instead of actually sharing us the numbers.

          • Agreed, I want them to stop being big fucking pussys and give us sales numbers and numbers in the game of how many people are playing instead of bullshit percentages.

    • France was one of the biggest factions in World War 1 and isn’t in the game and EA have confirmed that it will be coming as a DLC soon. That’s like making a Vietnam war game without Vietnam, sure it will work, but it will look retarded.

      EA are just as fucked with money as Activision, all the Battlefield fanboys hating on supply drops where it’s mostly camos and such where as Battlefield had Battlepacks which you have to pay for and have OP things like attachments which you can’t get it without opening battlepacks.

      • jordanxbrookes

        That was a stupid move to make, BUT, if the French are getting an entire expansion pack to themselves, then I’m fine with that since DICE give away a lot of content in the expansions for the price.

    • DeadZombieGaming 12

      Can we seriously fuck off with these shitty Guest accounts no one cares about?

    • CALL OF DUTY OWNS

      So? I’m a gamer, not a fucking sales representatives nor owner of these companies. Fuck of with your unit sales around here. Who the fuck goes to the video game store asking how many unit those each game sold to buy the one with the most sales? We got 3 cunts who stand by EA’s dick ’cause Activision fucked the shit out of ya’ll. In all honesty, who the fuck cares about sales? Black Ops 3 has significantly improved with all the new updates on black market. Now you don’t have to feel like you need to pay to earn things from the supply drops. Anyways, why the fuck ya’ll still here on CI? Nobody cares about your damn Battlefield circle jerk, This here is CALL OF THE FUCKING DUTY!

    • Mohammad K

      I havent replied a single comment on CI even after its about 2-3 year that i check in , but BATTLEFIELD HAS WON , said some shit that clearly shows he does not have a damn clue about what he is talking about! LOL! you want to talk about SALES of two franchises which one of them is COD? YEA then lets talk you dumb idiot! to all the people who dont waste their time on gathering sales info too! SO LETS START THE DAMN MATHS (It may be long though) :
      I will start from where Call of Duty was called *same shit everytime* but BF3 came and had awesome HYPE over it cause it was NEW(!)
      Do You Know :
      No1. Battlefield 3 *TOTALLY* surpassed MW3 on PRE ORDER with over 20.000 more pre orders on US just until 30th May 2011 , after the games released and till now , MW3 has 30.76M sells on all damn platforms while BF3 has 17.34M sells!
      No2. Battlefield 4 *BLEW GHOSTS OUT OF WATER* on PRE ORDERS with about 250.000 pre orders on US while Ghosts was at about 150.000 pre orders again till about 30th May 2013 , after the games released GLOBAL sells for BF4 are 13.9M products after all the damn OFFERS(Activision even now sells BO2 , 59$ so shame and damn on them) which the game was even 5$(!) but Ghosts has about 27.5M sells SO WHO THE F SAYS BF4 HAS 26M SELLS(!) IF IT HAD EA WOULD TEAR ITSELF APART!
      No3. Battlefield Hardline , the HardLine was not even on top 40 list of US pre orders till November (I dont remember exactly was it E3 that was announced? Oh my! Battlefield WON in SELLS?) then after this and AW were released (These days everybody call AW weak and shit(!) so probably just a slightly better than ghosts huh?) Advanced Warfare has about 21.5M sells worldwide while Battlefield Hardline has just about 4.1M sells WORLDWIDE… DAMN…!
      No4. This is the damn part where everyones minds gets blown , the media showed us the IW sells are very bad and the game is shit and ETC. NO ONE SAID THIS ON ANY DAMN WEBSITE : BATTLEFIELD 1 HAD JUST ABOUT 30-40 THOUSAND sells WHILE , Infinite Warfare had about 90.000 PRE ORDERS when it has not even shown a single MP footage (sells for 30th May again)
      ——
      The Reason they say Black Ops 3 was really good on sells and IW is not , nobody cares about this , is because BO3 showed MP footage on E3 and everyone were sure TREYARCH will deliver NICE MP , but they are not sure about Infinity Ward (Black Ops 3 pre orders till 30th May were about 700.000 copies)
      ——
      All the info are from http://www.vgchartz.com and im 100% sure they are legit maybe some minorities or etc. Im not saying IW is Awesome/Bad i want to play it also i want to play BF1 but i dont say shit about them either . but are you damn sure battlefield has won on SELLS?
      ——
      I have BF4 Premium , played since BF Bad Company , Played COD since COD2 , never been on PS3/X360 , , add me if you wanna play , but dont say nonsense when you dont have a clue about it

  • Fuck-Off

    Si Aliens are not plausible? We are not alone in this universe for sure

    • lunator100hd .

      Well thats an unproven statement, i believe the same but until we find alien life we cant be 100% sure.

      • If we find alien life, I 100% guarantee juses will rape it.

    • DeadZombieGaming 12

      That moment when someone actually finds Alien Life, but they just get killed by em… lel

  • A Very Wealthy EA Shareholder

    I saw a leaked Infinite Warfare unboxing on YouTube earlier. The guy opened the box and inside was a turd. Seems legit so check it out!

    • I saw a leaked Battlefield 1 unboxing on YouTube earlier. The guy opened the box and inside was a piss. Seems legit so check it out!

      • Element115Will

        I prefer piss then turd, plus you can drink if if you have no water! So IW is shit, you wanna eat it? Uhh go ahead.

        • I mean… I’ll try to eat it. But I don’t think shitting a disc is very pleasant.

  • thebulky1cometh

    I know this isn’t the right forum, but just wanted to toss this out there:

    Anyone else on PS4 seemingly having more connectivity issues with BLOPS3 in the last week or so? I’ve had everything from failing to load the game past the main menu, to failing to load the multiplayer screens…all kinds of crap.

    • Bo3 connection for me is always shit, I have no problems with other games on my PS4 and my internet is fine but whenever I play bo3 multiplayer I get lag spikes every so often.

    • Ken Ward

      Nothing like that, but all of my friends and I have been experiencing a lot of random lag stuttering. The game will often just pause for about a second, then burst forward to catch up. This, and general “stop motion” lag from one or two players per game.

    I’m surprised Tmartn hasn’t made an illegal Call of Duty supply drop website yet.

    • Sentinel

      That’s ’cause he knows better not to fuck around with Activision’s brand.

  • I’m so fucking mortified rn. Just lost a bowie knife fade factory new (worth over £200) in csgo gambling…

      Ask Tmartn for it back;-)

      Speaking of gambling, I found this really cool site called G4mbleYoSk1ns and I won a small pot of 4/20 YOLOs and I followed them on Twitter and they were talking about me doing a sweg sponsor so I can get me that YT$$$$…

  • Alex

    YAWN !!!!!! COD Sucks same old shit……

  • J4MES

    Tmartn is getting so much hate on his latest COD video that he’s disabled his like bar! For the sake of Call of Duty and its dwindling integrity; Activision should really terminate their deal with him. He is now in deep legal poo poo and he knows it http://www.pcinvasion.com/youtubers-tmartn-syndicate-caught-shilling-csgo-betting-site

    • FUCK TFARTN

    • Sentinel

      This has nothing to do with Call of Duty. & No, it is not in the interest of the COD community, what-so-ever.

      For future reference, leave all that BS on the right category. I’m done.

      • J4MES

        The wider internet would disagree with you. The headlines of ‘Call of Duty Activision salesman involved in illegal gambling, fraud, deception and advertising crimes’ is pretty significant no matter how ignorant you are.

        • Sentinel

          “The wider internet” Okey, the fuck do I care haha. None of this info that you are stating here on Charlie Intel concerns me and most of us. This info is fucken useless to a person who’s remain aware. You just obsessed with the idea of Tmartn getting owned with these legal manner. Activision sales? All that shit is above my paid grade. The real question is, why you still here? Go be a journalist somewhere else dipshit.

          • J4MES

            You apparently care quite a lot it seems. You may have your head in the clouds when it comes to the COD corporation and its puppets but others have a far more keen interest where their hard earned money is going and how its being conducted behind the glitz of ‘hype’ and promotion.

          • Sentinel
        • Keshav Bhat

          He’s no CoD salesman, and doesn’t represent Activision.

          I’m not defending what he did, but that’s not the headlines that are emerging right now across sites. It’s more of “YouTube personalities.”

          • J4MES

            The Call of Duty community view him in this capacity and as he promotes their unreleased material on a promotion for perks basis; he is that of a salesman of the brand. Activision use him for free advertising on a channel that has no legally bound age restrictions – something they would have to adhere to. The headlines are surrounding several breaches of EU and US law in regards to advertising and disclosure along with severe ToS violations of Google.

      • jordanxbrookes

        It does when TmarTn is the fucking poster boy for Call of Duty.

        • Sentinel

          Okey, that is part of what he does. This shit about CSGO, not Call of Duty. Anyways, why do you suddenly care now. You already have cancelled your pre-order.

        • Keshav Bhat

          No he’s not?

          • Sentinel

            I don’t think he has a single clue. He just showing some courtesy to his fellow mate who he blindly follows.

        • Element115Will

          Since youre the most faithful and more civil person I know here on the comment section, may I ask what Tmartn did? I am utterly lost.

      He not only lied once to his fans, but he lied to them over and over again. But when him and Tom got caught they act all innocent and think it’s a joke. I don’t think the FTC will find it a joke when they give those guys a knock on the door.

      I censored your original comment, as I’ve said, because it was CSGO related. I’ll leave this up as more proof had been shown.

  • Dallas Phillips

    Watch IW multiplayer turn out to be good, your still going to have all the children panning it still playing it. AND their is a beta coming out which is a smart move probably going to be revealed at COd XP so at least we get to test it ourselves and get the feel b4 november to see if its worth a purchase. and even if IW is highly disliked you still have the remaster, ill be all over that thank you very much

    • Sentinel

      I believe that it will be an awesome multiplayer. They already said that it has BO3 movement mechanics but they never said that was just about it…Can’t wait to attend COD XP to see what the are keeping from us! Hopefully they release a beta to the public so that these haters have a real reason not to like the game. & Yess, with the play the campaign 30 days early will assure that I keep up with on the multiplayer side of things ’cause I always try out the story mode first! Btw, I hope they keep TTK the same as Ghosts but with a slight increase.

  • se7en

    So he’s referring to the game as a “Hollywood blockbuster” ie Michael Bay Transformers….we dont fucking want that, we want a war simulator not a stupid Michael Bay movie!
