Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare goes full sci-fi with space-based gunfights

One small step for Call of Duty, one giant leap for mankind

With more leaks than the Titanic, we pretty much knew what to expect out of today’s Call of Duty reveal. But now it’s here, in 1080p, with a trailer full of space-dudes shooting each other and one ill-considered cover of “Space Oddity.”

That’s right. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s hook for 2016 is that you strap on your Buzz Lightyear boots and blast off into space, making it objectively one notch better than Star Wars Battlefront. Check out the trailer below:

It definitely looks like Call of Duty. Or at least the last four near-future Call of Dutys.

More interesting: Certain preorder tiers come with a remaster of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare—which, despite being released in 2007, is still the best non-World War II game in the series. But the bad news is that as far as I can tell the remaster is console-only. One could say “Well, the PC version already was the remastered version” but even if that were true I would’ve been happy to see the multiplayer servers fill out again.

We’ll keep you updated if we hear the Modern Warfare remaster is coming to PC also.

Anyway, the game releases November 4. “Another year, another Call of Duty,” and all that. Expect to hear more about the game in June courtesy of E3, and stay tuned later this week (May 6) to see whatever the hell Battlefield counters this with.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
