It’s been over six months since it originally debuted, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will finally get a standalone release.
The remaster, which was first made available for purchase in November of last year, is built upon the original Modern Warfare, which was released all the way back in 2007 on last-generation consoles. This re-release sports a handful of upgrades, including new higher resolution textures, lighting and rendering upgrades, enhanced sound effects, and a few quality of life upgrades. The game even runs at 4K (using checkerboard rendering) when played on a PlayStation 4 Pro.
Unfortunately, up until now, Modern Warfare Remastered was only available by purchasing the Legacy, Digital and Legacy Pro editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which retailed for $79.99, $99.99 and $119.99 respectively. Now, players will have the opportunity to purchase the game as a standalone product, either on digital storefronts or as a retail boxed product.
To mark its release, Activision has planned a special event, dubbed the Call of Duty “Days of Summer,” which will celebrate the launch (or rather, re-launch) of Modern Warfare Remastered.
For more, check out a blurb from the press release below:
The five-week community celebration begins June 27th and will feature a bevy of in-game giveaways, XP events and new playlists across multiple titles, including a new summer-themed map for Modern Warfare Remastered that will be available through the duration of the event, along with much more to be announced on Tuesday.
