City screenshot from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

If you're like me and you haven't touched a Call of Duty game for many years now, you might be surprised to hear how futuristic all of it has become. The world appears to be some sort of utopia, space ships are practically everywhere, and to top it all off, we now posses a "Moon Gate" whose purpose I can only begin to imagine.

Things have certainly become a lot more interesting, though a lot more confusing as well given that the main antagonists in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare come from beyond the stars. In order to give you at least a bit of an idea of who you're going to be fighting against, the Call of Duty folks have released a brand new video showcasing the 'big baddie' and the overall storyline. Have a look:


While the whole concept of building a massive invasion fleet capable of taking down the entirety of the Earth is a bit ridiculous, especially since its all some sort of a resistance movement, the premise itself is pretty damn cool. The like/dislike bar on the Youtube video quite clearly doesn't agree with my sort of viewpoint, but I'd rather take revolutionaries from space than yet another modern setting where we get to shoot people with slight accents. Whether the story will be any good or not, I have absolutely no idea, but the developers are at least trying to bring in something new, and that I can certainly appreciate.

On a slightly different note, if you would like to try out Infinite Warfare's multiplayer before it officially launches, the Multiplayer Beta will begin on October 14th for the PlayStation 4. The Xbox One version will be soon to follow, while us PC gamers will only be able to access Infinite Warfare on the day of its official launch - November 4th.
