Infinity Ward Will Develop Call Of Duty 6

September 16, 2008

 

Activision Blizzard have confirmed Infinity Ward to be the developer for the next Call of Duty game, after World at War. The game is currently slotted for 2009, but these are the only known details outside of the company itself. There is no mention of the story, setting, or gameplay, but we can assume it will be amazing, considering the success in both sales and praise.

Call of Duty Co-Op Gameplay

August 8, 2008

 

The one feature that last years Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was lacking, is co-op gameplay. There was no online, no split-screen; nothing. So, you can imagine why gamers are excited for Call of Duty: World at War. It is being made by Treyarch, which people need to realize, isn’t such a bad thing. Here’s the first look at the first ever Call of Duty co-op.

Another Call Of Duty In The Works

August 2, 2008

Call of Duty: World at War is supposed to release this October, but Activision Blizzard CEO, Bobby Kotick, has already announced another installment. This next Call of Duty is going to be out in 2009, and be made by another developer, presumably Infinity Ward.

Kotick says that franchise will still “leapfrog” from developer to developer, possibly confirming that Infinity Ward is creating the next game. In addition, after Infinity Ward renewed their publishing contract with Activision, community manager Robert Bowling said the renewal “has laid the ground work and kick started our future project, as well as the possibility of a unique new IP by Infinity Ward, that we’ll have complete control over.” This all but confirms Infinity Ward’s involvement in this, so I’ll leave you with something to chew on. Do you think the new IP or Call of Duty could be the rumored sci-fi game?

Best Bond Since Goldeneye

July 16, 2008

 

We all (should) remember the great old days of 007 Goldeneye. There was nothing more fun than inviting three friends over and having slapping only fights to the death. While you might not be able to slap in this new Bond game, it is still impressive. 

 

Quantum of Solace will be released this November to synch up with the movie release. Wait, wait, wait. This is a movie game? Yes it is, but if Kung Fu Panda can get a Metacritic score of 78, I think this game will do just fine.  

 

 

If you watch the gameplay footage below, there should be a few important aspects that you should remember. First, it has it’s own intuitive cover system that resembles Ranibow Six: Vegas. Cover systems are quickly becoming standards in all third-person shooters, but now a lot of first-person shooters are getting them as well. Next, there are awesome stealthy executions. Last, my God, that is Daniel Craig. The face of the Bond character looks EXACTLY like his actor, just like The Bourne Conspiracy ;).

Call of Duty: News, Rumors, and Trailer

June 26, 2008

It’s true that Call of Duty 5, or Call of Duty: World at War, will once again be taking place during World War II, albeit in the Pacific Theatre. It’s also true that Treyarch, makers of the lackluster CoD3, are developing it. But, you might not want to give up hope just yet.

Why the name change from Call of Duty 5, to Call of Duty: World at War?

As posted on VideoGamer:

“We’re getting rid of the number in Call of Duty for a very specific reason. It’s because we want you to know that when you’re playing Call of Duty: World at War you’re playing the best shooter, the best WW2 game ever. Likewise when you’re playing Modern Warfare, likewise when you play any game that will be called Call of Duty.” -Senior producer, Noah Heller

Modern Warfare still had a ‘4’ in its title, so what will Infinity Ward’s next CoD game be called? Huge amounts of fans are requesting a sequel to the Modern Warfare. If they choose to create a sequel, what will they name it, Call of Duty: 6 Modern Warfare 2? That would be stupid! Their only other option would be to name it Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: The Sequel. Considering all this, maybe Infinity Ward has something else in the works…

RUMOR: What might Infinity Ward be working on?

A supposed “Infinity Ward insider” has let slip that Infinity Ward is currently working on a sci-fi title, that may or may not be a CoD game. With CoD4: Modern Warfare selling over 10 million copies, you’d think Infinity Ward would stick to the working formula. Or perhaps they’ve split development into two teams, one to work on said sci-fi game, and the other to create a new CoD. Either way, Infinity Ward has shown they know how to please the fans.

Any new details regarding Call of Duty: World at War’s gameplay features? 

Yes, and fans of the series should be excited, even though Treyarch is developing it. A major aspect of this CoD is fire. Two new weapons, flamethrowers and Molotov cocktails, add a new experience to the gameplay, mainly because of the physics involved. The fire will move and burn according to the wind. In addition, the fire comes into play with one of the next key fetures: destructable environments.

Akin to the recently released Battlefield: Bad Company, objects you are able to destroy in real life should be destroyed in the game. Say you need to make a quick getaway, so you shoot the walls of the wood building you’re in and there’s a new exit. Hopefully, this feature will be implemented into the amazing online multiplayer that is CoD.

The online multiplayer in this installment is supposed to be similar to CoD4, but will also pose some new additions. Features such as perks and air strikes will still be in place, however Treyarch is adding something that CoD online has never seen before: vehicles. For the first time, you will be able to locomote in ways other than on foot. Whether this means planes, tanks, or recon vehicles is unknown, but it is still groundbreaking for the franchise nonetheless.

Finally, Call of Duty: World at War will have both split-screen and online co-op, a feature that’s been wanted since the beginnning of the franchise. Split-screen can be enjoyed by up to 2 players, whereas online co-op can house up to 4 players. During co-op play difficulty will be altered depending on the skill levels of the players. With so much returning from the beloved fourth installment, and amazing new additions this might be a must-have game.
