Ships Ahoy - Call of Duty 4

Activision and Infinity Ward declare modern warfare, as Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is now available for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 (as well as Nintendo DS, but this probably isn't a direct port). For a sample of what to expect from the new direction for the series, which formerly focused on World War II, a playable demo was released last month (story). Here's the announcement: :
Santa Monica, CA – November 6, 2007 – Starting today gamers can enlist in Activision, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: ATVI) Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare™, a gripping modern-day action-thriller that deploys them into heart-stopping battles across the world’s most treacherous hotspots. Developed by Infinity Ward, the game is now available at retail outlets nationwide and delivers unprecedented high-definition graphics, piercing 5.1 surround sound and a dynamic community-oriented multiplayer experience.

“We’ve set out to create the most intense, visceral experience in Call of Duty 4,” said Infinity Ward Studio Head Grant Collier. “From the beginning, our team has been focused on pulling players into an unfolding, well-paced and relentless action experience that includes: fast-roping from attack helicopters in the dead of night; utilizing a camouflage Ghillie suit as you inch behind enemy lines; or being immersed in fun, competitive action in multiplayer that enables gamers to create classes, unlock new abilities and taunt opponents as they level up.”

Featuring a tense storyline, filled with plot twists, the title thrusts players into battle like never before. With amazing special effects, including rim-lighting, depth of field, texture streaming and character self-shadowing, players are enlisted into one of the most photo-realistic gaming experiences imaginable. Famed composer Harry Gregson-Williams, whose credits include Enemy of the State, Man on Fire and Spy Game, directed a soundtrack featuring an original score by Stephen Barton that draws gamers harder and deeper into the epic experience.

The community-oriented Call of Duty 4 multiplayer gameplay features a robust leveling system, variety of unlockable perks, hot-join and matchmaking, as well as create a class and party capabilities to ensure that players of all skill levels can join in the fun for up to 18-players on Xbox 360 or PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and 32-players on Windows PC. Additionally over 100 challenges and a host of new game environments and modes deliver unlimited possibilities. Infinity Ward has also included Kill-Cam, a fan favorite feature that they created in Call of Duty 2 which allows for spectator instant replays.

As retarded as it sounds I'm going to buy this for the singleplayer aspect. The moment I heard they weren't incorporating some of United Offensive's multiplayer features I lost interest in that side of the game, though I'll still be giving it a try once I buy it.

I've been waiting for a game that was kind of like Battlefield 2 except geared for singleplayer and I think this sort of fits the bill judging by the demo. Despite the mindless shooting gallery feel, the actual combat ended up being more satisfying that a couple of deeper, yet for the most part just as linear, shooters I've played since August. Given the way I play games, there's no way I won't finish by the time my next game comes out on the 16th.

And with any luck, COD4 multiplayer will end up growing on me. Everyone seems to think it's pretty good, but I don't have a 360 so the beta was a no-no for me. If anything, I wish they'd stuck with a good old rifle bash instead of a knife thrust, but that's just asthetics I guess.

*sigh* Thirty more hours until I can buy it. Argh.
