Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare multiplayer revealed

On September 4, 2016 by Aaron Meehan


During the Call of Duty: Experience convention, Activision and Infinity Ward officially revealed Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer mode, and well it look interesting.

As a person who hasn’t played a Call of Duty game in a few years, the Infinite Warfare multiplayer looks like the usual fast-paced experience that has become synonymous with Call of Duty games. While Infinite Warfare multiplayer appears to contain the usual fast-paced experience, Infinity Ward is looking to create a more customised experience.

Enter the combat rigs (Rigs) there are six rigs for players to choose from and each one offers their own style of play. Each rig can be customised as you can alter its payloads and traits. Payloads can be powerful weapons of abilities. Traits are either persistent, overcharged enhancements or abilities refilled every few seconds. The six rigs available are called Warfighter, Merc, FTL, Stryker, Phantom, and Synaptic. Each of the six rigs has a choice of three payloads and three traits. Some traits and payloads include FTL Jump – a localized FTL burst that moves you a short distance forward (FTL rig), Hardened – placed equipment and drones have increased health and can also persist through the player’s death (Stryker rig), and Propulsion – press a button to quickly dash in any horizontal direction (Synaptic rig).

Apart from a large array of customisation options for rigs, Infinite Warfare will include crafting. According to Activision’s official press release, “players can use Salvage, the crafting currency earned during a match, to craft unique Prototype Weapons that come with special cosmetic and functional benefits called “Gun Perks.” Gun Perks alter the functionality of Prototype Weapons and make them uniquely suited for various play styles.”

Crafting and customisation appear to be the major points in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare multiplayer, for a more comprehensive overview of the multiplayer, please check out the below video.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be released November 4th, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Those who pre-order the game on the PlayStation 4 will be able to take part in a multiplayer beta that begins on October 14, those who pre-order the Xbox One version will have their own multiplayer beta at a to be announced date. There will be no PC multiplayer beta.
