‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered’ now available to all

After launching in June on PS4, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is now available as a stand-alone game for Xbox One and PC. Like the PS4 version, both the PC and Xbox One versions go for $40.

Previously, Modern Warfare Remastered was only available as part of an $80 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare bundle. At the time, publisher Activision said that this would be the only way to play the enhanced Modern Warfare, but earlier this year, a series of leaks started to suggest otherwise.

A PlayStation game case for Modern Warfare Remastered was shared with fan site Charlie Intel, and it appeared to be genuine, with a quote from IGN visible on the front. The back showed several screenshots, as well as the usual logos for developers Infinity Ward, High Moon Studios, Raven Software, Certain Affinity, and Beenox.

A Target listing also shared with Charlie Intel stated that the game would release on June 27 for $40 — which turned out to be spot on for the PS4 version.

While it’s great that Modern Warfare Remastered is now available as a separate purchase, its $40 price tag may not be seen as the best value for some. More than seven months after its launch, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s “Legacy Edition” has held steady at $51 on Amazon for numerous weeks. That edition comes with Modern Warfare Remastered, as well. The Call of Duty Modern Warfare Collection, which bundles together the last-gen versions of Modern Warfare and its two sequels, is also available for for just $19.

Modern Warfare Remastered resonated with Call of Duty players last year, with its throwback to simpler multiplayer that wasn’t weighed down by dozens of kill streaks, special abilities, and futuristic weapons. Its campaign still holds up today with a mix of urban combat and stealth missions, and the famous “All Ghillied Up” level is among the greatest in any first-person shooter. Fortunately, it looks like this is the style of game Sledgehammer is making in Call of Duty: WWII. Ditching the science-fiction for more-or-less historically accurate locations and battles, it is the Call of Duty game for those who swore off Call of Duty.

After Infinite Warfare underperformed and other shooters like Star Wars Battlefront II and Battlefield 1 have given players other options, Call of Duty: WWII might be a chance for Activision to recapture the multiplayer throne. We will find out when the game launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 3.

Update: Revised to reflect that Modern Warfare Remastered is now available on all platforms.
