It has been announced that the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will feature brand new audio and textures.
Eric Monacelli, Infinity Ward’s director of communications, stated that Modern Warfare Remastered’s developer, Raven Software, will be reworking the game from many different directions. “Raven’s really amping up everything… [The studio is] sticking true to the core, original vision of the game, but they’re looking back at the textures and reworking those completely from the ground up to make them have that fidelity that you expect from current console generations. It’s gonna look vibrant, it’s gonna look brilliant, it’s gonna look like something amazing when you play this game.”
Modern Warfare’s audio is also being reworked, and will feature newly recorded sounds. “The sounds are being reworked. There’s audio reworking done. We’re revamping all that. There’s new Foley that was recorded.”
Monacelli also stated that new techniques will bee used on the title, including HDR lighting and lighting for particle effects. “Especially new techniques, too, since 2007 [was when] the game came out… so dynamic lighting’s been worked in, new visual effects – just a lot of processing and a lot of new tech that’s been pushed on there.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will release on November 4th on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game will be included with the Legacy Edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Activision has stated that Modern Warfare Remastered will not be sold as a standalone title.
