Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare launches for PC, PS4, and Xbox One

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has been released for console and PC. Infinite Warfare marks the first time that the series takes the campaign into the stars with a storyline that is set throughout the solar system. As Captain Reyes, a member of Tier 1 Special Operations, players must lead one of the few remaining warships fighting for Earth against an insurgent force. That means taking part in not only ground-based operations but also dog fights in zero gravity. Players who grab the Legacy and Digital Deluxe Editions will also be able to relive old adventures with the included Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. The undead also return with the four-player Zombies in Spaceland, which features an amusement park setting along with a new crafting system, weapons, and eSport-integration features. Multiplayer also adds new mech suits, known as combat rigs, that are design for specific combat roles but customizable with upgrades.
