Call of Duty XP 2016 officially kicks off tomorrow morning at 10:00am PT with the reveal of Infinite Warfare multiplayer, and in case you’re wondering when you might see additional footage and impressions, here are the times they will be hitting YouTube and news sites. We’ll be live blogging/tweeting/posting articles as announcements are made, however gameplay capture and impression/opinions will be shared at the time below:

Friday Sept 2nd 12:00pm PT:  Infinite Warfare multiplayer

Saturday Sept 3rd 10:00am PT:  Modern Warfare Remastered multiplayer

Monday Sept 5th 10:00am PT:  Black Ops 3 Salvation DLC4 multiplayer (no zombies)



    • FINALLY. What an awful limitation to not have connection bars (and even no rage quitting at the end? Come on). I didn’t mind the kill feed (AKA “obituary” lmao) and the UI changes in Ghosts.

    • I honestly excited for DLC4.

      Standoff is one of my all time fav map in the entire series. Can’t wait to see the remake of that… 🙂

        • I’d easily rather see them copy BO3 or AW, so I’m good with that.

          (current) IW doesn’t really innovate, so let’s use the better game to copy… 😉

          • We don’t fully know everything about it yet, so I don’t think that we should be speaking absolutely right now.

          • I really meant that more along the lines of movement system, specialists, and (hopefully) not being in outer space… 😉

        • Great comment, and NO I plan to skip that garbage idea map after trying it once.

          Still, I want my Standoff remake, and hoping that the Outskirts remake is solid as well…

        • Too bad you’re gonna suffer loneliness, cuz by the time Infinite Warfare releases, bo3 servers will be abandoned and the game will BE SHIT.


  1. I saw some of the leaked CoD footage. I’m seriously very f****** worried. Please.. please.. please let them not mess this up! I will be so let down!

    • I thought it looked incredible. I don’t know about the UI but (spoiler alert) FULL gold camos were added to the game and I’m stoked.

    • I personally thought they made an improvement with the multiplayer. Here’s some footage if anyone’s curious. Watch at your own risk.


      Notice how the loading screen is slightly different and how you can actually see your soldier in the multiplayer menu. The weapon customization section allows you to view how the camo looks on your gun and you can turn your gun around like in BO3.

  2. Was there an article on the community winning the Prizefighters or were the original articles just updated (I’ll go check real quick. Edit: Nope)? Seems like a big deal because it seemed impossible after the first couple of days. After I got them I immediately stole the idea of a Paintjob with blood splatter and called it “See Other Guy” lol.

          • In a war game? Boo hoo, I won’t lose sleep over it, in fact, I like lower-saturated games like this and Battlefield because I think it makes the game more atmospheric and war-like.

          • >war game
            CoD is anything but a war game. look at Battlefield, that’s a war game, and even that has a bright palette. why? because real war isn’t shit gray. it takes place in the real world.

          • Like it or not it’s a military shooter and is, therefore, a war game. That’s just a fact, and Battlefield isn’t very colorful, it does its own thing with its aesthetics. You act as if Infinite Warfare doesn’t look aesthetically pleasing in its own right.

          • Ah. I love the general UI personally. At least aesthetics are nothing more nothing less than subjective taste though. I mainly like the selection menu (can’t think of the official term at the top of my head)>

    • Can’t lie.. Dissapointed it’s going to be the exact same as bo3.. they could of took away a few things added a few Things… At least its not a complete disaster, better to copy n paste of treyarch than make a movement system they would of most probably fucked up…

      Leave stuff to treyarch to do, they shown how to add 3D movement they gave us the pick 10 system, they even gave us zombies.. The other studios all they can do is copy and paste untill trearch comes up with something else..

      And people wonder why their are so many treyarch fan boys.. This is why..

        • Bo2 is one of the best multilplayers ever imo… Great guns, great maps, great score streaks, great camos, great ttk, great DLC and the first time pick ten was introduced… I know it gets hate for bad hit detection or w.e but I love it..

          Bo3 literally saved Cod after A.W and ghosts.. It’s not the best, but it’s better than anything the other developers have put out in recent years…

          Treyarch is far from cancer.. That award goes to S.H with Advanced Warfare..

          • BO2 was indeed one of the best MP’s ever… And I like all 3arc games… But I have to say hitditection and connection is always beter from infinity ward… And at this moment, matchmaking in BO3 sucks… Getting in to games that already started. Next thing you’re in a lobby with only 3 more people. No one joins… Search another game, again you join one that’s already halfway…

          • That’s one reason to be excited for Infinite Warfare; the mere possibility of near-spotless net coding [logic].

          • Overpowered guns and perks as well as broken Lightweight/Stock/camera angle animations and broken quickscoping to add unto that lol. BO2 had great ideas and it’s one of my favorite CoD’s (especially map-wise), but it was annoying and rage-inducing to play for me. I prefer BO3 in almost every way besides a few shipped maps and some DLC maps.

          • Bo3 isn’t the best but it saved cod`s ass for a while let’s see if infinity Ward can get their shit together like the old days I miss that old inspiring team

          • The main reason I like treyarch is for their zombies. Bo1, 2, & 3 we’re fillied with amazing zombies content and dlc. Imo, no other zombies mode can compare to what they bring to the table.

          • Yet I haven’t seen a whole lot of games like CoD on PlayStation Now (which IS considered to be BC, mind you), but that’s probably because streaming and using up even more internet bandwidth on top of what’s used already is probably not good enough for Multiplayer games. As for BO2 in itself I love that game to this day, but it had its fair share of game-breaking issues that I had with it, such as inexcusably broken animations and/or quickscoping.

          • The only thing that bothered me with BO2 was the DSR QSing.

            BO3 (and I have Dark Matter) IMO did it so much better with SRs…

          • That’s probably why BO3 is one of my most favorite Call of Duty games of all time, despite the sweats breaking the game for me (inb4 iTYPE2ANNOY jumps in and steals my thunder I go positive pretty much every game for the most part, at least). Quickscopers were the bane of my existence in CoD for a long time, and I can quickscope pretty well and always could since MW2 (I did it competitively). The Target Finder LMG’s, broken camera angles (as well as Adjustable Stock), and broken perks ruined that game for me, but it’s still a solid experience that I still have fun on. It’s one of the most well-balanced CoD’s next to BO3, that’s for sure.

            My gosh did Treyarch nail the snipers…

          • And someone please tell me that I’m not the only one annoyed with the first-person sprinting animations Infinity Ward has been doing since MW3. Destiny and Halo 5 do it too and it looks silly and cartoony. It’d be cool in a comic book game or something along those lines but I prefer Treyarch’s style. Although it’s better in Infinite Warfare and it may be accurate to how soldiers sprint in real life though but IDK.

          • I dnt get why ppl dnt just hold on to their previous consoles if they know they just gonna end up crying about backwards compatibility. Why play games via emulation when u can have the hardware? Especially since its network based emulation it should be a no brainer. The ps3/360 did not become worthless just because current gen came out. Both of those have hits for days that can be picked up for peanuts if you dnt already have them.

          • My exact thoughts on BC. Xbox One’s isn’t even fully native anyway, so Microsoft lied there (it’s emulation). If someone sold their last generation console to buy a current generation one then that’s on them, and with that it’s also more likely that they traded in a bunch of games, too, which is their own fault. Heck I never owned a PS3 so I want to get one and enjoy its exclusives whenever I can without paying $100 for PS Now (despite getting 400+ being a ton of value, that’s more than Xbone BC).

          • Most requested don’t mean shit. Justin Bieber’s music is hugely popular does that make it good? Exactly!

        • Please don’t insult poor people.. They wouldnt waste their time.. You mean *retarded.. Guywithbrains and lovekiller both loved that game… Point proven..

        • AW was a mess, & it’s just too much to write why without writing a book.

          BO3 IMHO is soooooooo much better, and hands down the best COD on this gen up to this point…

        • Advanced warfare tried to be like black ops 2 they included medals the same way bo2 did, the score streak system, and pick 10 or 13/ wildcards like in bo2 I know cod studios are a family but treyarch usually makes great ideas and gets copied from. I guess because they were very successful with bo2 and wanted to try to be successful like them

          • Cosmetically, I could see some things similar with AW and BO2, but (IMO) AW’s movement system was thrash…

          • Scorestreaks are a modification of pointstreaks, pick 10 is a evolution of the create a class system both started by Infinity Ward. Pick 12 in Ghosts actually fixed everything that was wrong with pick 10, its a shame that every cod since has went backwards in that regard.

      • It’s not the exact same, though? We shouldn’t be so hasty to jump to conclusions, and that speaks to everyone. Sure they borrowed a few things because they don’t need to fix what isn’t broken but how do we know for sure that they’re not putting their own take on the ultra-futuristic setting as well? I doubt that it’ll be “the exact same as BO3” IMO.

      • “Dissapointed it’s going to be the exact same as bo3”

        I could only hope that it’s as good as BO3 Scottie.

        IW has a melty TTK (I’m still worried about that) and they don’t know how to balance explosives.

        ^ If that BS is out of hand, then I’ll be playing a lot more BO3 and probably only IW when my friends are on…

      • That is a completely unfair comment considering that that Infinity Ward literally created the COD series… All the other studios have really done was tack on to what Infinity Ward started so put some more respek on their name. Treyarch has made amazing contributions to the series but dont get too carried away.

      • Treyarch built on the formula and having shit hit detection in the meanwhile aswell.
        IW created the franchise and don’t bring up the whole ”its not the same infinity ward anymore, you idiot”.

    • To be honest, I’m not surprised Infinity ward did a copy paste of BO3. Someone else already mentioned it, but Treyarch is the one that actually come up with new gameplay mechanics and ideas, they give us new stuff, wether we like it or not. IW just repeats after treyarch. Infinity ward should be ashamed of themselves. In 2 years, they accomplished more things with CoD:Ghosts than in a 3 year cycle. I really hope this game ends like ghosts so Activision would hopefully consider shutting infinity ward down.

      • Infinity Ward BRUNG us COD, they’re not going to consider shutting them down lmao, final plans for Infinite Warfare had to go by Activision first, they obviously liked the idea, people are STILL going to buy it, they’ve forced a remastered game with Infinite Warfare to INCREASE sales even more, the game isn’t going to fail from a business perspective, it’ll maybe fail the community, not Activision’s income.

        • No, Vince Zampella and Jason west brought us Call of duty. They already moved on to Respawn entertainment since Activision was screwing them. Since they left, just before the development of MW3, every game Infinity ward brings us is nothing but copy paste and a disaster. Admit it, IW doesn’t have any potential left. IMO, they should back down from the call of duty series.

          • And Vince Zampella and Jason West were apart of Infinity Ward, therefore Infinity Ward brung us COD. They are not the only two people who helped make any game Infinity Ward have made, there are more people in IW studios than just them. And IW not having any potential doesn’t relate to my specific comment.

    • Here’s the thing, we all knew it wasn’t gonna be boots on the ground already.

      If you’re gonna use advanced movement, then I’d much rather it be BO3 than AW.

      We do have boots on the ground with COD4R this year. (and more than likely a WWII game next year)

      So IMO things could definitely be worse, and if the gunfights aren’t “Ghosts Melty” with the TTK, then I’ll be happy playing BOTH IW, COD4R, and BO3 for another year…

      • Same. Nuff said.

        Since the maps potentially have unique designs to them, hopefully that means that the chain-based/advanced movement may also be better implemented, as well. I’m hoping that Infinite Warfare is a fun game, although I’m not a huge fan of laser weapons (which is really just an aesthetic thing but you know).

        • “although I’m not a huge fan of laser weapons”

          Yup, fully agree.

          TTK and balancing (weapon and explosives) are my only concerns left with IW…

          • Typical Infinity Ward issues, then (especially LOL’ing because of MW2, even though most of this Infinity Ward didn’t make it). Hopefully it’ll all be sorted out; if not, then I hope the game is fun despite such worrisome news.

  3. Still laughing at the fact Infinite Warfare is Black Ops 3.5. You’d think with 3 years they would’ve actually made some changes, considering Eric Hir$hberg called it “innovative”.

    • By innovative he meant that the supply drop microtransactions will be in the game at launch instead of being patched in later.

        • It’ll give us a clear look, and not everything has been leaked yet, so I really don’t get where this “IW is just BO3 copy and pasted” is coming from, I think it’s just jumping to conclusions as of right now.

          • From what I seen, I’m not jumping to anything lol. It literally looks like a BO3 clone and a 3 minute trailer isnt going to change anything especially when I already seen the leaks. It’s going to do nothing but confirm my opinion

          • There will be more than a 3 trailer this time, though. They will perhaps also have a conference as well in front of mainly CoD fans showcasing [pretty much] everything that the Multiplayer has to offer alongside more things going on with BO3’s DLC 4 and Infinite Warfare Zombies (maybe). Keyword here is “looks”.

          • I love the weapon variant crafting idea. They’re doing it way better than AW did it. I don’t think it’s an exact replica of BO3 because they’re doing their own twist on the mode but yeah there’s a lot of BO3 here. The sprinting animations may annoy me too.

          • It’s something else as of right now and there are no Supply Drops announced yet as far as we know. I’m not sure how customizable they are and whether or not they’ll have a ton of variety like they should though tbh.

        • yeah, but we’ve also only seen a few seconds of shaky cam, low quality video of some dude shooting a gun. We don’t even know about all the features, modes, and we know very little about maps.

    • They’ll call anything innovative. I’ll garuntee if SHGames revived their 3rd person idea in their next game and made it a core feature, you’ll have Activision screaming “innovation” and the fanboys will actually believe it and actually think a 3rd person mode is actually innovating and different lol

      • Nah bro, 30 seconds of leaked gameplay is DEFINITELY enough to come to a conclusion about exactly how this game is. Like after seeing this I’m not even waiting for the trailer and official gameplay, I’m already cancelling my pre-order. In fact I’m just selling my PS4 while I’m at it, cause every other CoD game until the end of time is going to be bad, I already know based off of this.

    • Yup, I knew you would rant the .5 bullshit. Watch all these fuckers follow along with that shit now. You think it is funny but shit is old news. You act like such games as Battlefield 1 or Titanfall 2 aren’t a .5 if we really talking about such thing. When did they state specifically that Infinite Warfare was going to have innovate movement?…don’t worry I’ll wait. When you play the game, hands on and stop being a inept human being and going for what you fucking see on a screen. When you are a up to par with these Devs, then I will take it back what I said. The game brings an innovate setting and features that you will only find on Infinite Warfare, not necessarily the movements. It was already mentioned that it would play like BO3, because the movement actually works. I don’t need to be a “fanboy” or an “Activision dick rider” to state facts about it. You are just a salty ass boi who only runs their mouth without being coherent about it. Ohh btw, at least Eric Hir$hberg is doing something with his life, making enough money to put you and your whole family on a paid tuition, 5 times in a row. Stop being a fucking cunt mate, on some real shit.

  4. Watching the leaked footage of mw:r and playing the bf 1 beta made me realize how much i miss the old school boots on the ground warfare of older cods. Not interested in iw at all but the moment mw:r is released stand alone day one no hesitation.

  5. This leak video is ugly. We will see it tonight whats going on with the gameplay. Sure, it looks like BO3 movement! First we have to play it, than we can judge!

  6. I have noticed a thing with CoD and Battlefield…
    Battlefield forums are so cancerous like charlieintel.
    Both have the same amount of negativity.
    People are calling BF1 lackluster, disappointing, garbage on the official forums and same goes for this site..
    Game Forums are so great….
