Playing Modern Warfare Remastered Early

PlayStation 4 gamers received a special treat when they got to play the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered single-player campaign 30 days early. While we have to wait until Infinite Warfare is released to play the multiplayer game, it stills feels great to once again take on the role of Sgt. John “Soap” McTavish.

Because the multiplayer part of the game is unavailable, this will be a preview of the single-player campaign. A full review will be published once the complete game is made available.

For this preview I have replayed the original Modern Warfare and compare it to Modern Warfare Remastered.

To recap the plot; the world is in chaos with unrest in the Middle East while Russia is being torn apart by a civil war between the government forces against the Ultranationalists. Tensions in the Middle East reach a tipping point when the Ultranationalists back a coup that puts Khaled Al-Asad into power.

In response to the coup, US Marines are deployed to bring stability to the region and to capture Al-Asad. Meanwhile Captain John Price along with Sergeant John “Soap” MacTavish of the Special Air Service (SAS) are deployed to Russia to help government forces and rescue one of their operatives.¬†The situation becomes critical when its discovered that the leader of the Ultranationalists is Imran Zakhaev (a ghost form Price past) and he has access to nuclear weapons.

Since installing it on October 4th, I have played through the first five levels of the single-player story. To recap, those levels are:
– F.N.G.(training level)
– Crew Expendable
– The Coup (prologue)
– Blackout
– Charlie Don’t Surf

Right away I noticed the attention to detail during the “Crew Expendable” mission from the effects of the weather on the level to the flame on Captain Price cigar. The upgraded graphics really does add more details to the environment while making the action even more thrilling.

At the same time, I noticed the controls functioned much smoother and had a better response than the original console version. The quality of how the game functions is almost on par with the PC version of Modern Warfare.

Overall, everything I loved about the original Modern Warfare has returned while every issue that was annoying has been fixed. It’s not too late for PS4 gamers to pre-order Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare just to play Modern Warfare Remastered early.

Disclaimer: I bought this game at GameStop as part of the Infinite Warfare: Legacy Edition.

  1. So what, Battlefield 1 is going to be the best game of this year. Call of Duty is done for!

  2. All Ghillied Up is probably my favorite level in any first person shooter. It’s an incredible experience. When I first played it at my friend’s house years back my mind was blown.
