Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the FPS that basically kickstarted the whole modern military shooter genre, will soon be getting a remastered version with vastly improved graphics and audio quality.

If you're wondering how vast these improvements really are, Activision has recently posted a rather lengthy gameplay video showcasing one of the earlier missions, and I have to say, its looking pretty damn impressive so far. The textures are no longer muddy, shadows seem fairly realistic, the character models and faces are no longer as jagged, and the way the light cuts through the foggy darkness is a massive improvement over the original's presentation. Have a look for yourself:


While the visual improvements are something the majority of people will appreciate, there is a bit of bad news here as well, depending on your perspective anyway. According to multiple reports from Activision, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will not be sold separately from Infinite Warfare, so if you want to relive the classic you're going to have to purchase a potentially unwanted game along with it. It'll probably become available as a separate purchase somewhere down the line, but for the foreseeable future I'm afraid you're out of luck.

Both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered will be released on November 4.
