Standalone Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Release Date Details

Originally sold only with the 2016 Call of Duty game Infinite Warfare, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered release date is here for the PS4 and the Xbox One and PC release dates are coming. This brings the classic Call of Duty 4 game to the Xbox One, PS4 and PC without the need to buy Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare or the need to wait for Call of Duty: WWII for boots on the ground combat.

While many gamers bought this with Infinite Warfare, that is no longer the only way to buy it. The PS4 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered release date is on June 27th and the game will come to Xbox One and PC later.

The original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare arrived in 2007 from Infinity Ward, redefining the Call of Duty experience. In 2016 the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release date delivered a remastered version in an expensive bundle. Now you can play this throwback without buying Infinite Warfare.

We’ll walk through what we know about the standalone Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered release date, what the game contains, who is making it and offer up some visual comparisons to help you understand what is coming.

Your stats will not transfer over from Call of Duty 4 on Xbox 360 or PS3 to the new game. There will be dedicated servers for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered multiplayer mode.

There is a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy that allows you to play Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3, but it is not connected to this game. This is a special pack for PS3 and Xbox 360. It is not remastered and it is not for the Xbox One or PS4.

The in-game movement will stay true to the original game, so you don’t need to worry about advanced movement and chain based movement getting in the way of your favorite game.

Here is everything you need to know about the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered release date that is no longer tied to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered release date is June 27th on PS4 as a standalone game. With a new Call of Duty 4 Remastered release date fans can buy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered without paying for Infinite Warfare. The standalone game is $40.

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered download size is 37.72GB on PS4 and 45.85GB on Xbox One based on the original versions bundled with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. You can buy the game on disk or digitally.

Activision did not announce any specific standalone Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered release date for Xbox One or PC, but you can expect it in July if it arrives similar to DLC.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Graphics

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. Here’s a comparison of the trailer and of the old game.

In a press release about the game we learn some details about the upgraded graphics;

“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered boasts vibrant current generation visuals, with fully improved texture resolution and detail, high-dynamic range lighting, lit and shadowing VFX particles, revamped animation and audio, stunning sound, and much more”

Whats in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remaster?

Now that we know the standalone Call of Duty 4 Remastered release is actually happening, it’s time to look at what you get with this game. First off, this is only the first game, there is no Modern Warfare 2 Remaster.

You get to play the full campaign in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. This includes all of the missions including All Ghillied Up, Charlie Don’t Surf and Crew Expendable.  In Short, this is the same campaign you loved, but the graphics are getting a huge upgrade.

There is also a Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered multiplayer component that will allow you to relive your favorite maps and online gameplay.

While there were a total of 20 Modern Warfare maps with DLC involved, not all of them are making it to the remastered version of the game. With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered you will get 16 multiplayer maps. We know that this includes;

  • Ambush
  • Backlot
  • Bog
  • Crash
  • Crossfire
  • District
  • Downpour
  • Overgrown
  • Shipment
  • Vacant
  • Strike
  • Showdown
  • Countdown
  • Bloc
  • Wet Work
  • Pipeline

There is also a DLC map pack with four other maps that you can buy for $14.99. In addition to these modes and single player, the game features full multiplayer progression for weapons, perks, attachments, and support for Master Prestige.

          No, the akimbo feature started in MW2. Though the only OP akimbo shotguns were the model 1887’s but only up until the 2nd or 3rd patch or so(you could basically 1 hit kill across map, if you ever played cod4 shipment; about that distance o.o). After that they were made pretty much useless compared to them before the patch. And the other akimbo shotgun, is eh.

            Cod4 was so good that at the time Activision stopped paying Punkbuster to keep updating PB and shut down the main server list server, it had more players playing on avg then both new games released after it combined on PC. Due to the custom maps, game modes like freeze tag, and servers like the old “Sniper only – No pistols” who had 40 admins always on and watching it(no hacking). The players made Cod4 great. Not Activision.

            Nostalgia? Do you even know what that means? The name MODERN warfare is completely opposite of nostalgia. The time Cod4 came out, there was no nostalgia to it because it was new. Once MW2 came out, then you could possible say nostalgia. Since nostalgia is an affection for an enjoyable past time, then it is utterly subjective to each person. Your personal opinion should be Cod4 IS the best game for nostalgia. Not MW2. But MW2 had much smoother gameplay and mechanics than Cod4. This is a fact.

            yeah youre right, cod4 will bring back so many mems. Narcosys, do you know what youre talking about?nostalgia doesnt have anything to do with a name of a game… nostalgia is more in reference to yourself and what you played as a kid or what ever you played that really got you into(in this case) call of duty or fps. and in most cases for everyone who was old enough to play, it would be cod4. in your case is probably mw2, seeing how your’e fanboying it right now… and if its a time frame thing, he means playing cod4 in todays gaming world, not back when it was first released. Though he loved cod 4 so much back then that when he plays it now it brings back so many mems, hence, nostalgia

        I was 3 when this game came out and i even played it which its still pretty damn cool if i say so myself! BO3 was the worst and AW was pretty damn cool even though it had A LOT of movement in it and ive had every cod since BO1 and i love all of em but some are still a lil trash like Ghosts but that wasnt as bad as IW

      For Narcosys; Nostalgia: “A sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.” Yes, this would be called nostalgia since it’s a 9 year old game at this point in time. Also considering that many hate what COD has become (including myself), I’d say that many are feeling nostalgia after seeing the COD4 remaster trailer. MW2 was fun, but let’s be honest, COD4 was iconic and set a path for awesome multiplayer as well as single player experiences. You can argue about how MW2 as well as every other COD game that came out afterwords improved upon COD4’s gameplay mechanics as well as new features, but the simplicity that COD4 had didn’t need anything else to stand it’s ground like the rest did. I, myself, haven’t picked up a COD game since the first Black Ops as none gave me that feeling the first one did. I still play COD4 like I never dropped it because it was that good. All a matter of opinion, sure, but you’ll have the ones that say MW2 was the best merely because there weren’t old enough to play the first COD vs COD veterans since day one who will always go right back to playing COD4 simply because it set a stage of a new era of gaming and is, well, nostalgic.

    Just do what I’m doing. Buy the pack of Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered, then sell Infinity Warfare to a friend or someone who doesn’t want Modern Warfare. Then you have a new game for a fraction of the price you’d pay for the original when it just came out.

    Im glad they are doing a re-boot of Cod4 that game is what got me into the cod franchise.
    Really was an amazing game!

    Here are some Questions:
    First: Will the games be sold separately or bundled?
    Second: Will punkbuster be used for anti-cheat or Steam VAC ?
    Third: Will there be dedicated servers for CoD4 Remastered?
    (I really hope so.. pls dont disappoint me Activision)
    Fourth: Since cod4 was played on consoles back in the day, will you do a cross platform?
    or release it separately for the consoles too?

    If all my questions are answered correctly
    then ill definitely be buying this game because its finally worth my money after all these years.
    Not only that but the new CoD singleplayer campaign looks pretty cool, but im more hyped for cod4 remastered edition. Let me know what you people think too :)

    In cod 4 you actually had to be good to get kills (without cheating). That’s why kids don’t like it.
    In all the modern ones you just get 1 kill and wait for the faires to do the rest.

    narcosys, ‘The’ is right when he said you get more nostalgia from playing cod 4 then mw2. but i think he was also meaning when he plays it in TODAYs gaming, because cod 4 was the original modern warefare with simple mechanics and simple goals. killstreak 3-5-7. So there is no need to be all mw2 fan-b0y here, plus it doesnt matter if the engine was smoother or there was more details. the engine is getting updated(hopefully not too much away from the orginal/mw2 engine) and so is everything else. it will feel like a completely different game. but for players that were playing cod4 when it peaked, will definitely receive some nostalgia, especially when picking up those old favs like the m40a1, g36c, mp5, dragonov.. all the weapons you don’t see in these new games… on a side note, i really hope they don’t change how the d-eagle performed in cod4. that will be a let down for sure.

    Deep within my heart lays my everlasting love for cod 4. Seeing sqeakers and hackers ruin the game brings tears to my eyes.
    By remastering this exact game, my hopes for the franchise go up.
    But things like those obnoxious emblems and that stupid yellowish palette they are bringing in, kinda ruins it.
    I have immense respect for Raven, due to the fact, that they are actually listening to the community instead of going with their own screwy ideas. But keep the game the way it was, so as the sounds for the Deagle and so on. It sounds like children’s toys in my ears.

    Update the graphics, keep the feeling. Do not add any other engine to the game to make it “look better and run better”

    Looking forward to staying low in the grass

    You cannot buy COD4 remastered separately, it is bundled with Call of Duty Infinite Warfare so, at the moment, you must buy the 2016 game if you want COD4. Personally, that is a con, forcing players to buy a game they might not play because they want the remastered COD4. F.Y.I. this info about the bundle is from Microsoft themselves as of today.
