Infinity Ward has just announced that Call of Duty Infinite Warfare has officially gone gold. In case you’re not aware what that means, when a video game goes “gold”, that means that the team has finished working on the base game, and the game was sent off to first party (Sony and Microsoft) for approvals and then the retail disc will start production.

They also noted that the Beta will be used to optimize multiplayer for when the game launches (whichΒ is 40 days from now).

  • “BETA”

    “Game is gold ”

    “BETA”

    • Brian

      I kinda get what you’re saying but what else can they call it?

      They can’t call it a demo because that implies they won’t take any feedback from it. The “beta” is to resolve any issues before launch. It will probably help them when it comes to the day one patch.

      Just because it has gone gold doesn’t mean Multiplayer is polished.

      • Except nothing is probably going to be changed. Demo is the next best thing or call it something else. It’s clearly not a beta lol

        • Brian

          Well when it came to the BO3 Beta treyarch changed things for the launch based on feedback. What is to say IW won’t change anything?

          • >August
            >October

            10 days before launch….yea no

          • Beta as fuck

            Patch approval by Sony and Microsoft already takes roughly a week. And people really expect major changes between the so called “BETA” and the “final” game? Lmfao The only thing we see is a little hotfix when we first boot the game.

          • Right??

        • Aidan

          What do you mean? Treyarch was on top of it last year.

          • Because their beta was in August

          • Aidan

            Ok, and they can still optimize things in the final week.

            Why is it such a big deal? The Overwatch beta was 2 weeks before the full game came out. Everyone is only crying about it because it’s a call of duty game.

          • I never made it a big deal. My original comment was a joke. However it’s weird it’s being called a beta because it clearly isn’t. If anyone is crying, it’s you lol

          • idk why y’all are arguing over if its a beta or not doesn’t really matter if you think about it because you’re both right the end

            But nobody thought it was a joke, except you. And it still wasn’t funny.

          • That’s your problem and that’s also subjective my friend. I thought it was pretty funny.

            You’d figured the CoD fantard would know this considering he reminds everyone what an opinion is..lol…fucking retard..

          • Aidan

            I’m a retard for not laughing at your shitty joke?

          • Except you’re the only one to say anything, so how are you going to speak for eveyone? Dont get mad because you took my comment seriously and now you’re saying it’s unfunny because you realize how stupid you are.

            In the words of leafy “yo is this person fucking retarded?”

            In the words of idubbbz “YES”

          • Bigi345

            That was a server stress test.They weren’t planning on changing anything gameplay wise

          • Aidan

            But they called it a beta. That’s also what they’re doing with IW, but everyone is pissing themselves over it.

          • Bigi345

            The game is gold. Calling it a beta is just pure marketing.

          • Aidan

            …That’s the point I’m trying to make.

          • Bigi345

            Therefore people have the right to call them out on it. It’s not straight up “uh dur its cod”

          • Thank you ^^^

          • Sol Malus

            It takes a week for an update’s certification to process. They can’t make changes for shit. All they can do is stress test their servers so the multiplayer isn’t unplayable come release day.

          • Aidan

            I don’t think I should listen to someone with a Minecraft profile picture… How much do you actually know about shit like this, just asking?

      • BradyAlucard

        Gold means the entire game is complete and is ready to be shipped. A beta is an earlier, unfinished build of the game where players test everything that’s in the game (at least Multiplayer) internally. Since they are restricting most of the content, it can be considered a demo, [a demonstration] of the full product.

    • Former

      Beta can refer to more than just the software being printed onto the disc. Any testing done before launch date can be described as a “beta” test. People seem to think this word is black or white, when it really isn’t.

      • My comment is a joke, dude.

        • Former

          Oh, well my bad. A lot of others aren’t joking on here, and I thought you were one of them.

          • I mean personally, I don’t think it should be called a beta, but either way I honestly don’t care. I’m more pissed that PS4 gets six days of this beta while Xbox and PC get screwed.

  • xSilent-Commando

    It`s no where near “Beta” stage… Beta stage would have been 4-8 Months back on a 3 year development. Less than a month from release is the “Beta”.

    • Aidan

      No one would play it if it was called a “demo” or a “Server test”

      • Bullshit

      • BradyAlucard

        Hence why calling it a “beta” is to get pre-order sales and nothing else.

    • Former

      Being in Beta only implies that the game is not at 100% yet, which is most likely isn’t. Don’t know why people suddenly think they’re development experts all of a sudden. You’re wrong.

      • Sol Malus

        Gold is 100% complete for the standard product.

        • Former

          Games can have a beta after going gold, such as Evolve did last year. At the end of the day, it’s literally just a word. Any period of time that can be used to optimize a game can be described as a beta.

          • BradyAlucard

            Betas have to be before the game is gold, Evolve having it just proved that it wasn’t a beta. Multiple games do it, doesn’t mean they *are* betas, they just throw the word on them to get pre-order sales. A real beta is months before release where people get to test the entire features of the game internally, sort of like what YouTubers do, except they see small portions of the game. They’re essentially the beta testers whereas we are the server stress testers.

          • Former

            Beta can refer to more than just the software being printed onto the disc. Beta testing can happen at any point before launch date. Is the game in a “beta” stage? No. But the word can be used to describe the tests being taken in the 6 days we play the game.

          • BradyAlucard

            Beta testing requires the beta stage of development (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_testing if you scroll down to where it says “beta testing), where the full game is tested (I’m not 100% sure on that so I may be wrong), not a restricted amount of content. Perpetual betas are also a thing, where they extend the beta to add more features, like what Treyarch did with Black Ops 3, and hopefully Infinity Ward does it too.

  • Beta as fuck

    And in 3 weeks we get a “BETA”… I laugh my ass off when I hear people defend it with “It’s BETA bruh”. Did I not say it? I said it. AAA games are gold over a month before release, see?

    • okay?

      • Beta as fuck

        Please praise me for being smart!

    • Keshav Bhat

      Call of Duty has gone gold at this time every year. We all knew that.

      It’s a beta because they’re using feedback to optimize game for launch. Still day 1 patch and plenty of hot fixes they can push to game before launch.

      • Beta as fuck

        A BETA always refers to software that’s not yet finished. If you say it’s a BETA just because they take the feedback to make minor adjustments, then you can call all games BETA. You can still call Black Ops III BETA then because they adjust the weapons. And so on and so forth. This is not a BETA. Doesn’t matter how you twist it.

        • Former

          The difference is, Infinite Warfare has yet to be released, which is why it can be described as in “beta”…Your logic is faulty.

          • Sol Malus

            The game is gold today.
            Beta starts in 3 weeks.

            The game is gold TODAY, as in FINISHED. The beta, which is an unfinished build of the game, starts in 3 weeks.

            It’s not a beta, it’s a server test.

          • Former

            If optimization can be achieved before release, than it can be described as in beta. Not sure why this concept is so hard to grasp for some people.

          • Beta as fuck

            You still achieve optimization patches after release, so all games are Beta now? The game is DONE! Campaign is DONE, zombies is DONE and multiplayer is, you guessed it, DONE! There is no Beta! Everything is finished!
            At worst this is a Demo, at best a server stresstest. But this is call of duty, they know exactly what server capacities they need for the game.

            You can call all games with dev support Beta by your logic. The game is finished. Everything you see in the Beta is exactly the same in the official release version. Of course you see more content in the final version, but it’s exactly the same.

          • Former

            As I’ve already told you, the game has not launched. It may be gold, but it has not launched. Therefore, a beta test can exist. Did you fail to grasp the only point in my first reply to you? My lord..

          • Beta as fuck

            The game has not launched, and??? The devs themselves said it’s done, finished, golden, ready to go. Just because it’s not launched doesn’t mean it’s Beta. The game is done, and that’s all that matters.

          • Former

            Yet there can still be a beta test to optimize things. Did you really not even read the article or Infinity Ward’s tweet? Or are you more of an expert on development than them, so you didn’t think it was necessary? Lmfao.

          • jordanxbrookes

            You have no idea what a Beta is do you? The game has long passed its Beta stage. The game went Gold yesterday ffs. Not sure why that is so hard for YOU to grasp.

          • Former

            Again, the word beta implies that there is testing being done to optimize the game before release. This can happen at ANY point before launch date. Hence why Infinity Ward, a company a bit more proficient in game development, are calling it a beta.

          • jordanxbrookes

            More proficient than me? Yes because the employees have been working in the industry for years and years & are a lot more experienced in the industry than me. However, you do realize I’ve been studying Games Development for over 3 years right? I know how the industry works. Once again, yes they can test, balance and look at the data on their end to make the day-one patch better, but the game is not in Beta. Most companies these days use the term “Beta” incorrectly as those games have long passed its Beta stage. The IW “Beta” is a public demo that has been used to garner more pre-orders, but also to adjust the day-one patch. If Infinity Ward truly wanted to stress test servers and work on matchmaking, then this “Beta” wouldn’t be a pre-order bonus, it would be open to everyone regardless if they pre-ordered or not.

          • CoDforever

            They can still make the same changes to the beta if the game was gold or not

      • jordanxbrookes

        *It’s a Demo.

    • Sol Malus

      And BF1 comes out 2.5 weeks before CoD.

      Pretty sure the broken ass beta for that game is the final version.

      • Dr. Edward Richtofen RIP jf16

        Bf is always the same

  • Lol good thing y’all clarified that i thought it sold or in this case 500k people pre ordered it

  • sounds like the weeks between the beta and release will be the most busy weeks for IW by far

  • djml9

    Guys, Its not a GAME beta, its a MULTIPLAYER beta. The multiplayer will not be in its final form when we play it in October. Just like how Rainbow 6 Siege’s ranked mode is currently in beta. It simply means that it’s not in its final form and is subject to change as a result of the data gathered during this beta period.

    • Sol Malus

      Except you know, the multiplayer is part of the game.

      By October 14 when we download the beta, it will be 20 days until the release of the game, that is NOT enough time to change anything.

      The second beta weekend is like 10 days before launch.

      • Former

        You say “not enough time” as if you, yourself, are a game developer. Lmao. I love all these pseudo-experts spewing nonsense.

        • Sol Malus

          Certification for an update takes a week at the very least. The second beta starts a week before release.

          • Former

            They’re having the beta to collect information to make a Day 1 patch. Creating a patch does not take a damn week, especially just for server and coding fixes.

          • Sol Malus

            Certification takes about a week, plus $40k

          • Former

            Sources?

          • Sol Malus

            Google it man. I’m not your search engine.

          • Former

            Yet you claim exact numbers as if you’re an Activision employee. In reality, you don’t know much.

          • Sol Malus

            And you don’t know how to talk.

          • Former

            Pointing out editing errors? Guess you’ve truly hit rock bottom. Lmao.

      • djml9

        Yes it is, especially for a team that size, and especially for the stuff that is open to alterations.

      • Eddie Tupy

        bo3 is still adding things to MP to this day…IW mp is not complete get over it…it is good enough to sell is all.

    • Kyle Emery

      Kinda weird like? Because the game just went gold

      • djml9

        But the mp is not complete, it is still open to further devlopment.

        • Kyle Emery

          Well if a game as gone gold then it’s finished. But Yh there will be some thing they need doing in the mp

        • jordanxbrookes

          You are a tool. The game is Gold meaning the full game is complete, packaged and ready to be put onto disc.

    • Dr. Edward Richtofen

      R6 ranked isn’t really a beta though

      • djml9

        Its in beta, meaning theyre gathering info and will alter it accordingly. The IW MP will be in beta for a few weeks.

        • Dr. Edward Richtofen RIP jf16

          Yeah but it has been for almost an year

    • PvBrent

      ok. Since you’re making your self look like a bit of a tool here, let me clear a few things up for you. The game is gold and sent off for approval and for manufacture. They have a completed final build for shipment. (You cant get an approval on an unfinished build of a product) Now as for the “Beta” it should really just be called a “Public Test” This is a by the numbers type of situation. The only changes you will really see are number changes. If certain items need buffs or nerfs… Things like that. It’s also a good time to publicly test servers. Any changes that are made to the game at this point (Since the game has already gone gold and has a final build) would be implemented in the day one patch. You’re argument that the MP is not complete is invalid. That’s like saying Black Ops 3 launched in beta because it received updates and patches that made adjustments to functionality of the MP experience after it’s release. At any point in any game’s life span, it can go through changes and face lifts.

      I just want to add that your not entirely wrong in your statements, but your not entirely right. The real fact is that there is a bit of confusion due to the fact that the developers are calling this a “beta” after a game has gone gold. If you didnt have internet, when you popped the disc in, you would be getting the final build of the game at this very moment in time. A finished game but not up to date game. granted that “up to date” is only a matter of a month after its final build.

      • Eddie Tupy

        the graphical assets might be complete but the coding can always be changed to fix balancing. in the bo3 beta everyone had black hat cuz it was OP as fuck, in the real game it was totally different and it was within a month or 2 of release. The day one patch can change everything.

        him saying ‘ it’s not in its final form and is subject to change as a result of the data gathered during this beta period’ is not wrong at all. even if they change the smallest thing or dont change anything at all, his statement is still valid.

        • PvBrent

          you’re just saying what i already said. Coding is just number adjustments. Buffs and nerfs. This can be done pre final build or post final build. in this case it’s being done post final build. As i said, every game is subject to change in it’s life span. Black Ops 3 is still receiving these types of updates now. That doesn’t make Black Ops 3 still a beta. The point is, as i said, he wasn’t entirely wrong, but not entirely right. The point was that this game has an official final build. That final build is subject to change as with any game after or post it’s release.

          • Eddie Tupy

            so that means hes right then

      • BradyAlucard

        The only reason why they’re calling it a beta is because a beta’s known definition is to play unfinished games early in order to find technical and, for the case of MP, balancing issues. But if we were to go into specifics and this really were a “beta”, then we’d be testing the entire game with all guns, maps, modes, and every feature the game has to offer so that nearly every bug and glitch have been seen, addressed, and fixed.

      • Lmao people like you get so defensive on here, it’s being labelled as a beta, get over it.

    • ccrows

      Primary Goal – MP stress test

      Secondary Goal – You can still make buffs and nerfs… (think Razorback from BO3 here)

  • Lehnz

    Sure, beta whatever. But you know what, it would be nice to have the multiplayer beta test before it goes gold. You know, that way we don’t have to download a 2-3 hour update file once we get the game.

  • DEMOLITION12

    doesn’t this mean people will get copies before the beta is even up?

  • so how are we playing a ” beta ” then?

    • Former

      Game is not at 100% = Beta. Pretty simple, dude. Read the tweet in the image.

      • .Monkey

        So pretty much you saying BO3 is not at 100% since they’re still balancing things?

        • Sentinel

          That part.

        • Former

          Before launch date, obviously.

      • jordanxbrookes

        It’s not a Beta when the game is Gold. It’s a Demo to get people to pre-order.

        • Former

          Beta testing can continue after a game has gone gold. Evolve did it last year. It’s not a planned thing, but it happens.

          • jordanxbrookes

            They can test, update and fix things as a day-one patch in the Final (Gold) build of the game, but there is no point going back to previous builds and test the game when they’ve already done that.

    • Kyle Emery

      Pre Order then you’ll get a beta key? Simply as??

      • Mick

        He means “How can this be a beta then?” Not “How do you get the beta?”

        • Kyle Emery

          Oh

      • It’s not a beta. This is just a demo.

        • Kyle Emery

          It’s a Beta Dumbass, why would it be a demo? If it was a demo it’ll only be for Single player, A Beta is Multiplayer Testing looking for bugs glitches all that kinda shit!

          • If you’re going to be a immature little bitch than you can just cry to someone else, I’m not going to take your stupid shit talk over the internet.

            It is hardly a beta when the game is basically completely finished and only a couple weeks from launch.

            Also, how have you never heard of a multiplayer demo before? Demos are not a singleplayer only thing.

          • Kyle Emery

            Ok! And am not immature. Why does the Pre order state as a beta then?

          • Because that’s what they want you to believe.

            You don’t actually think they can put meaningful changes in the game less than a couple weeks from release, do you?

            This is basically for small bug finding and server stress tests.

          • Kyle Emery

            Ok am sorry for everything I said. I’m just against haters that’s all

      Of course you can say it looks shit if you haven’t played it it’s like seeing a movie trailer and think we’ll that looks shit or seeing an add for a fifa game and think well that looks shit IW is a black ops 3 reskin and yes it does look shit

      • Kyle Emery

        It maybe a reskin but you still can’t judge a game if you havn’t played it. Youtubers were saying the games like bo3 mixed with mw2 and ghosts. Well if ya think that way your loss pal. Am a massive cod fan so I know what to expect from a game. I’ve watched many movie trailers and thought it looked shit by the time I watched the movie I enjoyed it.

        • Smayo

          IW just looks bland, even do I didn’t like Bo3 because of the movement system in that game, at least it looked “alive” IW reminds me of Ghosts and AW with its bland and cold presentation, boring looking if you want. From the coloring of the maps to the menu it just looks dead to me…

          Adding in the same movement mechanics as Bo3 I can already tell I’m not going to like this game…

          Only chance I’m going to play a CoD this year is when MWR is released separately from IW…

          • BradyAlucard

            “Coloring of the maps” matters in what way? Aesthetics should be the least of the game’s worries. If you ask me, the game looks like crazy mindless fun, which is what it needed.

            Black Ops is garbage for having bright colors (not saying this is your opinion), and IW is garbage for have dull colors. I feel so sorry for CoD devs. Theres literally nothing they could ever possibly to win people over. The bandwagon started rolling and everyone is afraid to hop off and get left behind.

          • Smayo

            I like the bright colors in the black ops series, granted, Bo3 is a bit over the top but it has more to do with certain map designs (picknick tables for example) but in Bo1 it just felt right, colorful maps without getting gimmicky.

            IW has imo a “clean” look, something a lot of futuristic games suffer from. Its not game breaking or anything, I just like the more gritty looking CoD’s…

          • Kyle Emery

            Cool, I get ya

        • jordanxbrookes

          Game felt nothing like Ghosts. It’s like Black Ops 3 mixed with Advanced Warfare with a tint of Black Ops 2.

          • CoDforever

            it looks like ghosts with bo3 movement to me

          • Kyle Emery

            Cool. To many people babbling about how wrong I am mate. It does my head in. Yeah you proberley right πŸ‘πŸ»

          • jordanxbrookes

            I’m just speaking out since I’ve now played the Multiplayer. Hate to be that person correcting everyone but yeah πŸ˜›

        • BradyAlucard

          Correction: Nobody knows it’s a reskin for a fact until we can look at the PC files. If the game copies every line of Black Ops 3 code to a tee, then it’s a reskin/carbon copy. But it won’t because they’re not allowed to, so it’s objectively not a reskin.

          • Kyle Emery

            Ok. Let’s see what happens when it’s out.

          • BradyAlucard

            Yeah. Everyone tends to act like they know what they’re talking about these days but they can’t say so for sure.

      • BradyAlucard

        You can’t literally call it a reskin, that’s just ignorant. You should at least respect the effort and hard work Infinity Ward has put into it. Saying that they spent 3 years on copy and pasting code from Black Ops 3 is hugely disrespectful, especially since it was [perhaps] created from scratch but used Black Ops 3 as inspiration. A “reskin” would be carbon copying every line of code to a tee, in which none of us know anything about. Have you seen the PC files? No? Then it’s not a “reskin” for a fact.

        • Infinite Warfare looks like and plays like Black Ops 3

          • BradyAlucard

            How do you know if you haven’t played it yet nor seen the PC files?

          • I don’t need to see PC files or see a coding that says “totally_not_blackops3”

            The game looks like another Black Ops 3

          • BradyAlucard

            In order to call the game a “replica” or “copy” of Black Ops 3, you need to be completely objective. And you still haven’t answered this question; have you played it? Last time I checked, the movement isn’t as fast as Black Ops 3’s, so it isn’t entirely like Black Ops 3, only the concept of the movement is the same. Doesn’t mean it plays the same, plus there are changes to the Specialists (Rigs) and other things, so it’s not “another Black Ops 3”.

          • Lol objective? No i don’t. The game looks like Black Ops 3. Wall running, boost jumping, score streaks, specialist, a lot of features from BO3 are in IW. Therefore I go hmmm Black Ops 3. Looks just like it in terms of gameplay. It’s another Black ops 3. What are you going to tell me next, WaW isn’t similar to CoD4 in anyway because it has dogs and one animation change? Lol

          • w (formerly known as guest w)

            bradyalucard really has a boner for this game. Hopefully the game crushes his dreams. I’ve seen him fall on his face before and come back next day like he didn’t fall on his face though, so who knows.

          • BradyAlucard

            You’re analyzing the game without playing it for yourself, and I’m being technical. I agree that it’s the same in concept, but it’s not the exact same, that’s a ridiculous claim, especially when it’s merely used as a base. World at War and CoD 4 use the same engine but they don’t play the exact same, that’s actually not a bad example; World at War wasn’t a reskin of CoD 4 because Treyarch added their own flavor to the maps, tanks, and other subtle changes and Infinite Warfare isn’t a reskin of BO3 because Infinity ward added their own flavor to the content (i.e. how they handled Rigs/Specialists). Even if it were a reskin, CoD has always reskinned its games, so why would this be a special case?

          • Except i dont have to play it to make that statement. I have two eyes and a brain. The game is exactly like Black Ops 3. Just like how WaW is like CoD4. It’s the samething lol. I don’t see any gameplay differences between BO3 and IW the only little difference there is, is the specialists being called “rigs” that’s it. Lol. Even Infinity Ward confirms my opinion by saying “if you like Black Ops 3, you’ll feel home at Infinite Warfare”. There is absolutely nothing different lol

          • BradyAlucard

            That’s a subjective statement, one that you cannot make without actually playing the game. Being the same in concept doesn’t make it the same. World at War and CoD 4 weren’t even the same, because of changes to fundamental mechanics no matter how subtle, just like Specialists and Rigs. Infinity Ward is handling Specialists differently and they’re putting their own take on it, so saying “there is absolutely nothing different” is a preposterous statement, especially when it’s objectively wrong if we’re going into specifics.

          • Obviously it’s subjective and yeah I can. I don’t need to play the game in order to say it’s the same. Because there is video proof lol. Just like I dont need to play revelations in order to know it’s shit. There is video of the map that i can watch and form my opinion.

            Cod4 and WaW are definitely the same dude. Just because there are one or two different things doesn’t mean shit. Overall the gameplay and the ideas are the same. Just like IW and Black Ops 3. Same game, different year.

          • BradyAlucard

            Yes, you do need to play the game to know that it’s a bad map. I hope you’re not one of those guys who tell people that watch gameplay videos on YouTube on games you like to ‘play it first’. Overall, since the entire point of gaming is about the interactivity, you definitely do have to play the game first to solidify that you think that a map is ‘bad’ or ‘crap’ for a personal fact. I can tell you firsthand by playing it that Revelations isn’t ‘bad’ as a whole, it’s actually very fun to play. I think Sunset Overdrive (Insomniac Games X1 exclusive) is a ‘massive letdown’ in comparison to its other games, but I can’t say that indefinitely because I haven’t played it yet. I know that I won’t like Uncharted 4’s story because of Druckmann’s feminazi agenda, but I can’t say that I won’t like the open, linear gameplay yet until I play it.

            There aren’t one or two different things, though, that’s the point. They’re all not the exact same at all, let alone carbon copies of each other. They definitely added their own takes on their respective games, that’s a fact.

          • Except its subjective, it’s MY OPINION..So yeah I can say that without playing the map. Who are you tell me I cant? Are you going to stop me? Do I need your permission?

            And your little YouTube thing, I don’t tell people anything lol. I speak MY OPINION and if I don’t like something, then guess what? I don’t fucking like it. I swear youll probably be turning your head if I said something positive about Revelations without playing, but no it only works one way, doesn’t it?

            IW is just like BO3 I have already given my reasons why I think that, and if you disagree because of one kr two little changes. Fantastic I really don’t care. But dont try and say I cant say something or have an opinion without playing it because I can.

          • BradyAlucard

            This is a misunderstanding and misinterpretation, I wasn’t trying to be insensitive or offensive in any way. You don’t need my “permission”, but in my opinion I don’t think you should make yourself seem like you’re as credible or that your opinions hold as much weight as you would when playing because merely watching videos is very minute versus actually playing it. What do the videos entail in an industry that surrounds itself in interactivity, especially on an FPS? Just saying, politely, that it’s not a very sound view, I’ve seen so many gamers criticize a game without playing it and then be impressed once they do. I did it with Bloodborne and it’s now my favorite game this generation.

            Nah, I’d actually have the same views as I do now. I definitely do think that watching the videos can help to be honest but objectively speaking and without seeing any reasoning and/or elaboration, YouTube trailers and gameplay videos aren’t really a whole lot to go off of.

            I find it mildly ignorant, I’m not going to lie. I only take issue when there isn’t a whole lot of reasoning involved. Everyone judged the IW trailer and gameplay videos and jumped to conclusions because it’s a futuristic game (come on, you know that’s true), but the reason why I don’t say that it’s a copy and paste is because the code is written from scratch (presumably) and they’re making it their own with other features that aren’t even subtle. I’d rather discuss it respectively than beat around the bush and have a petty back-and-forth for no reason that could turn ugly, so I’d appreciate it if we could have a polite and subjective discussion, because that’s what comments sections are for.

          • I see what you mean.

          • Aidan

            I thought you liked Black ops 3?

          • I do and that’s like the one of the reasons why I think Infinite Warfare might be a decent game

          • Aidan

            even with all the shit you talk on it?

          • What shit have I said about Infinite Warfare besides the negative criticisms i have said. As far as I’m aware i have been straight down the middle with it.

          • Aidan

            Doesn’t feel that way sometimes

          • djml9

            Take out the wall running and you wouldnt be saying that. You people see one similarity and suddenly theyre identical in every way. According to your logic, a cat is the same as a horse because the both have 4 legs.

          • Are you stupid? Please don’t ever try to use analogies again. Because that was extremely stupid lol.

          • djml9

            It wasnt though. People see 1 single similarity and suddenly its a “reskin” or “copy/paste” or “previous game.5”. There is way more that goes into this game than the movement mechanics. Them building off of BO3’s does not make it a copy of BO3.

          • Except I didn’t say it’s a reskin or a copypaste. I said it looks and plays like Black Ops 3 and obviously takes a lot of features from Black Ops 3. Therefore it’s another Black Ops 3, genius. Even World at War is just another CoD4 in terms of gameplay and features. Use. Your. Head. And stop putting words in my mouth.

          • djml9

            You said its the same as BO3, thats the same thing as calling it a reskin, etc.

          • No it’s not. If I wanted to call it a reskin, i would say it straight up. So no, once again

      • BradyAlucard

        The graphics are insane (as well as Black Ops 3’s and AW’s) and all I wanted was crazy, mindless fun with no worries about technicalities like balancing and boring competitive crap.

          the graphics are far from insane lol what? Looks like a ps2 game at some parts

          • Wait what? How am I defending the game?

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Are you not suggesting the game is not shit simply because it’s not out yet with that picture?

    • Aidan

      That’s what I’ve been saying!

    • CyberWolf

      People are just stupid. That’s it. Also, last time I checked, Rainbow Six Siege did the same thing as well.

      • Edward Richtofen Adolf is bae

        But they actually changed stuff from the beta

    • Cenobyte666

      Get your facts straight, Overwatch was in close Alpha for months before the Open Beta. This is simply a glorified demo for pre-orders.

      • BradyAlucard

        How was Overwatch’s “beta” any more of a “beta” than Infinite Warfare’s? Because you like it more?

        • Cenobyte666

          Closed Alpha was there for balance, people played it for months. On the actual Overwatch beta, it was a stress test for the servers, on all platforms. Black Ops 3 last year was a real beta. Nothing wrong with the IW Beta, I would just call it a stress test then.

          Also, there is barely enough time for them to fix issues before release.

          • Sentinel

            Overwatch was a new built IP, It makes sense to have a server stress test since it the fist on it’s kind. Call of Duty has many games out for years, tweaks will be made and ready for post launch release.

          • Cenobyte666

            Maybe, but you still need to balance abilities and weapon damage in a real environment. Anyway my problem is not with the “Beta”, I just think it’s only a big marketing move from Activision to get pre-orders.

          • Sentinel

            That’s ’cause it is.

          • BradyAlucard

            Oh, well, if you wanted to get into specifics of what a beta is… it would mean that we’d be testing every feature, mode, weapon, map, and everything else that the game has to offer in order to be able to see almost every bug and glitch that plagues it. That’s the point of a beta.

          • DJSaviD

            Actually, a game’s “pre-alpha” is its true beta stage, it’s “alpha” is its charlie stage, and its “beta” is its delta stage. It has nothing to do with what the developers choose to let us access or how long it runs for. It’s just the build of the game. They call it a “beta” and an “alpha” because that sounds cooler than playing a charlie.

          • Charlie

            :'(

          • epicpoke

            ‘A game’s “pre-alpha” is its true beta stage,’ ~Some moron.
            Many games, including Titanfall, Overwatch, Battleborn, Black Ops 3, and Infinite Warfare, have open betas to test how their game works with the ‘usual’ group of players, normal joes and competitive players alike on a very large scale. Closed beta, usually only given to anywhere from 10 to 10000 players, is a much smaller scale. Note large changes in betas and then full releases. Also, no such thing as a charlie stage, it’s development, alpha, beta, release. It’s engineering terms, not just latin and NATO phonetics.

          • DJSaviD

            Yeah except I’ve worked on a game before and I know how it works. Sorry some moron knows more than you. Cheers!

          • epicpoke

            Yeah? What game? And just because you’ve worked on a game, that does not imply you’d know more, especially seeing as your comment above offers proof that you’ve little to no clue as to what you’re claiming you know more about.

          • BradyAlucard

            I’m talking about the way that betas were handled in the past, with beta testers and such, where they played the full game to see the maximum amount of issues as possible. That was how technical issues were fixed years ago.

          • Paul

            Not reallly to late. We play maps use weapons find glitches and then IW will patch glitches and balance maps and weapons. They can still change a few things that could altar the gameplay in a few weeks

        The Battlefield Beta is a true Beta. They should have given us that IW beta literally right after cod xp smh. October is too late for them to actually think it out good and make any changes needed imo

        • Aidan

          Oh my god, why does it even matter? You get to play the game. that’s what matters.

          • Thatlazykid

            It matters because during black ops 3 we actually found many things such as the razorback being OP! October is way too late it should have been literally after cod xp. I wouldn’t be surprised if IW has a bad launch. Hopefully it isn’t

      I dont see that “.5” nonsense very often here. IGN, though, everything is .5 this or .5 that. Its as if its only a sequel if its 100% different in every way, or if its not CoD/made by Ubisoft.
