As rumors led us to believe, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is getting a standalone release. The game is launching exclusively on the PS4 first in stores and on the PSN store, and will be coming to other consoles later.
The stand-alone release will cost $39.99 and will not include the Modern Warfare Remastered Variety Map Pack. Given that every Call of Duty DLC drops a month later on non timed exclusive platforms it's a good guess that PC and Xbox One players will get it on July 27. Considering that WWII returns Call of Duty to "boots on the ground" multiplayer, it's perhaps unsurprising that they didn't want anything detracting from hype around the game. Will you be picking up Modern Warfare Remastered or has that ship already sailed for you? In 2016 the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release date delivered a remastered version in an expensive bundle.
As seen below in the 2017 launch trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, fans are given a look at the game's single-player and multiplayer components, with both modes having been given an optimal graphical and audio overhaul from the original 2007 release.
Since then, the title has been in demand from loyal fans of the series who didn't like the idea of forking out the extra scratch to play the weird Call of Duty "in space" installment.
The graphics are ready to impress, and should live up to what you are used to on the Xbox One, PS4 and current gaming PCs. "We can't wait for next Tuesday to introduce a new map and new game content, and play with the community". This includes all of the missions including All Ghillied Up, Charlie Don't Surf and Crew Expendable.
The remaster, which was originally made available for purchase in November of a year ago, is built upon the original Modern Warfare, which was released all the way back in 2007 on last-generation consoles.
