Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Certain missions in Infinite Warfare’s campaign will feature old-school, boots on ground movement

Published

During GameInformer’s new podcast, Jacob Minkoff talked a little bit more about Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s movement system.

He started off by saying that the overall movement system featured in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is “very much in line” with the movement system present in Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, which features the chain-based movement system.

Jacob Minkoff, Design Director at Infinity Ward, went on to state that certain missions in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s campaign will feature the old-school, Modern Warfare boots on the ground movement.

“Now we do have missions that are old-school, hardcore, boots on ground. Like when you start out on Earth, it’s exactly old-school, Modern Warfare boots on ground. As you move into space, in low-g environments, in zero-g environments, in other planets, we give you what we call a boost rig, which has RCS thrusters on it. That’s when you also get access to the grapple.”

He also talked about the new Grapple movement feature in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s campaign, stating that the grapple can move in all directions, allowing you to move 360 degrees in space. Minkoff talked about how you can change the way you move in zero-gravity, flanking from different vantage points never before seen in Call of Duty. 

Brian Horton, Studio Art Director at Infinity Ward, stated that the movement in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is not connected to Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in an way. There are no exo-suits in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and the strength that the exo-suit provided in Advanced Warfare is not present in Infinite Warfare.

Details on Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer are still limited, but the full reveal is coming September 2 at Call of Duty XP event.

Estimated total number of players on PlayStation 4 for each Call of Duty title since 2013

Published

on

Last week, Sony launched the PS4 My Life campaign which allows PlayStation 4 players to see some of their stats. Statistics include overall play-time, top 3 most-played games, rarest trophy, and more.

The rarest trophy statistic provides the exact number of players who earned said trophy. Using this data, Redditor /u/Kalinine has created a report on /r/CallofDuty estimating the total number of players each Call of Duty title since 2013 received on PlayStation 4.

It’s important to note that these are simply rough estimations – Activision has not confirmed these numbers.

Black Ops 4’s numbers will appear significantly low due to releasing only 2 months ago. The influx of players from Christmas also have yet to arrive.

In order of highest player count to lowest…

  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops III – 54.7M
  2. Call of Duty: WWII – 25.5M
  3. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – 21.3M
  4. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – 18.4M
  5. Call of Duty: Ghosts – 13.2M
  6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered – 10.6M
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – 9.8M

Black Ops III’s player count is incredibly high, likely to it being available for free to all PlayStation Plus members from June 12th to July 11th, 2018.

While this is a rough idea of total player counts, there’s still many variables which contribute to its inaccuracy.

  • It’s assumed that the numbers are global, however this cannot be confirmed.
  • It’s not known whether these numbers are players who launched the titles or simply had them installed.
  • According to Redditors, the numbers span only from November 20th to December 4th, 2018.
  • The author of the report did not include Trophies with a percentage lower than 0.5% to reduce inaccuracy.

What are your thoughts on these numbers? While it may seem worrying to see Black Ops 4’s numbers low, it’s important to take into account all of the aforementioned points.
