During today’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare San Diego Comic-Con panel, Activision revealed that Terminal, a fan favorite map from the past, will return this year. The announcement was accompanied by a lengthy new gameplay demo from the title that showcased some of the action to come later this year.
Originally developed for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Terminal has been reworked in order to fit the Infinite Warfare setting. In order to do that, developer Infinity Ward changed what was an airport terminal into a shuttle port on the Moon. Despite the change in location, the spirit of the map is said to be retained. The level won’t come standard in the game, though, as the only way to get will be to pre-order the shooter.
Clocking in at over 13 minutes, the “Black Sky” gameplay clip from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare offers up a lengthy look at the game. Taking place during the early portion of the single-player campaign, the video sees Lt. Reyes and company pressed into action. In the wake of an attack on UNSA forces during Fleet Week by the Settlement Defense Front, it’s up to the lieutenant and his squad to retaliate.
Giving away an extra map as a pre-order bonus is nothing new for Call of Duty, so this is hardly surprising. Last year’s iteration came with NUK3TOWN, while Ghosts featured the Free Fall map. It will be interesting, though, to see how the wildly different mechanics of Infinite Warfare work in Terminal.
As for the demo, Infinity Ward has given us another solid look at the shaken up gameplay. The assorted firearms wielded during the demo were exciting to see in action, while the seamless transition to space combat is still stunning. The studio’s last entry in the series may have been a bit of a dud, but everything they have showcased so far has been impressive, to say the least.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is slated to launch for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on November 4.
