Okay, I know it’s not “cool” to look forward to a Call of Duty game in 2016. And granted, the Infinite Warfare subtitle is dumb.
But you know what? When they started playing the demo at E3 I was like, “Damn, what game is this?” The space combat looks reminiscent of EVE Valkyrie, as directed by Michael Bay, and there seem to be some really interesting ideas at play here. At the very least, it’s hard to say this is “the same old Call of Duty.”
All this to say I’m giving it a chance. Maybe it won’t live up to the E3 trailer. Maybe it really is another boring Call of Duty. But I’ve gone from “buying it because of the Call of Duty 4 remaster” to legitimately interested in Infinite Warfare ($60 preorder on Amazon or Steam). That’s more than Activision’s managed with me the past few years.
