Activision confirms Infinite Warfare disc required (for physical purchases) to play Modern Warfare Remastered

Published

on

UPDATE – October 5: Activision has further expanded the FAQ to talk about how digital versions will work.

If you are buying the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Digital Legacy or Digital Deluxe edition, there is no disc or code. You are *not* required to have both downloaded in order to play either content, which means you can just download Infinite Warfare or just download Modern Warfare Remastered — depending upon which one you want to play.

For Digital Legacy and Digital Deluxe Editions of Infinite Warfare on PS4, there is no game disc or voucher code. An Internet connection is required to download content. Modern Warfare Remastered and Infinite Warfare are two separate downloads and there is no requirement to have both installed in order to play either piece of content. No game disc is required if you purchased the Digital Legacy or Digital Deluxe Edition of Infinite Warfare.

UPDATE – October 3: Activision has posted a brand new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered FAQ on their support site and at Call of Duty site, detailing some new things about the remaster.

It confirms that for those that are buying Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare at a physical retailer, you will need to have the Infinite Warfare disc inserted in order to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

Activision has discussed how it will work for all platforms. For those buying digitally, you will need to download the Infinite Warfare Digital Legacy or Digital Deluxe Edition to get access to Modern Warfare Remastered.

For PlayStation 4, Modern Warfare Remastered will be included as a digital code in the box in Infinite Warfare’s Legacy and Legacy Pro Editions. For Xbox One, Modern Warfare Remastered is actually included on the same Infinite Warfare disc (no extra download code), but there will be an additional download required to play Modern Warfare Remastered. 

For both platforms, the Infinite Warfare disc will be required to play Modern Warfare Remastered.

  • PlayStation 4 – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is a full game digital download that will be included in the Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition and Legacy Pro Edition on PlayStation 4. The digital download is redeemed via a voucher code on an insert in the box. The Infinite Warfare game disc must be inserted to play Modern Warfare Remastered. Internet connection is required.
  • Xbox One – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is included on the Infinite Warfare Xbox One disc (no voucher code required) in the Legacy Edition and Legacy Pro Edition of Infinite Warfare. Before Modern Warfare Remastered can be played, an additional download is required. The game disc must be inserted to play Modern Warfare Remastered. Internet connection is required.
  • Steam – A Steam key will be provided in the Legacy Edition of Infinite Warfare that will provide access to both Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered. Internet connection is required.

Original Story: 

Following the release of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Launch Trailer this week, Activision launched a new site to highlight Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered at callofduty.com/modern-warfare-remastered.

This site has new legal wording under the first half that has not been present in their marketing or FAQs before. It states, “Modern Warfare Remastered is a full game download (game disc must be inserted to play Modern Warfare Remastered).

This is the first time an official Activision site has listed that a “game disc” is required to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, regardless of which edition you buy of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Legacy/Legacy Pro), is a digital download only. The box includes a digital code to download Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

For those who are getting the two games digitally via PlayStation Store, Xbox Store, or Steam, this does not apply for you. This only applies to physical purchases of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Legacy and Legacy Pro editions.

Many fans were suggesting the possibility of selling their Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare disc after getting the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered code, but it appears that might not be an option anymore.

As we stated above, Activision has never used this wording before, so we are not sure if this is a mistake, or something changed.

We will update if we get any information from Activision regarding this.

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.

via /u/Kalinine | /r/CallofDuty

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.
