Touting the “most customizable” multiplayer experience in the franchise’s decorated history, Activision and developer Infinity Ward today unveiled the online component of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Aligned for release across PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 4, the blistering first trailer for Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer is accompanied with news of an open beta test. Much like Black Ops III before it, it’ll be available on PlayStation 4 first come October 14, though there’s currently no mention of when it’ll make the leap across to the other two platforms. If past betas are anything to go by, it shouldn’t be any longer than a week.
In flinging its crown jewel into the not-so-distant future, Activision has opened up a whole host of bleeding-edge technology for players to toy with. The Combat Rigs, for instance, are essentially customizable mech suits that can be tailored to your play style. You’ll be able to catch a glimpse of those suits in action via the video below, which also runs through new gameplay modes and Salvage, the in-game currency that can be used to unlock Prototype Weapons.
This Infinite Warfare blowout took place earlier today at the ongoing Call of Duty XP event, so stay tuned for more updates as they emerge. In the meantime, you can have a gander at the official description for the sequel’s multiplayer component, below.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer combines a fluid momentum-based movement system, player-focused map design, and deeper levels of combat customization to create an intense gameplay experience where every second counts. Infinite Warfare Multiplayer introduces an all-new combat rig system, hundreds of weapons, never-before-seen high-tech equipment, and unique prototype weapon crafting to fuse immersive, frenetic action with innovative new gameplay experiences at every turn.
Bringing an old-school fight to a futuristic war, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare deploys for duty across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 4. Ardent fans can also looked forward to the launch of the shooter’s soundtrack on vinyl.
