Raven Software explains the difficulties of restoring a classic.
I wonder if they will release all the dlc's later for free
They said the would, or at least implied.
They said that the 6 maps will be free for those who buy the two additions of COD:IW that comes with with MW. So, this means, to me, that MW will sell separately and you will have to buy the six maps. Who knows, but that is how they stated the it at the reveal.
Gonna situate myself and say COD4 remaster is definitely gonna be better than BF1. The beta I've seen is close to mediocre for BF1.
@mike Judging from the BF1 beta i'd say CoD has its work cut out this year. Lets see how's this going to play out.
Nope.. BO3 is already better than BF1.
Mike go drink your chocolate milk and play with your toys.
Bo3 is easier than bf1. So I understand why you'd think it's better.. ..Bf is for the more advanced fps players. So I'll just say this....Bf 4 released in 3 years ago as a launch game for ps4 xbo...BF4 is still up and running. Whit ghosts and advanced warfare struggle to keep people playing....with no you get much more banh for your buck.
"BO3 is already better than BF1." -_- He said Black Ops 3. That microsaction filled, pay $20+ for new weapons game and Infinite Warfare won't be any different. BF1 is steps ahead and more epic. Not even logical to compare CoD4, a game you know all the maps already to a game that so far, maybe 85% of the maps haven't been shown yet. I like to pay for games that has bang for my buck, not some game with rehash copy and paste mechanics. If you showed me IW without telling me it was IW, I would of truly thought it was a BO3 DLC.
They said the 6 remaining maps will be free also more surprise will also come out in DEC
@AA 6 yet to release were in the main game, 4 were DLC maps.
the in game hud is really a turn off. it just looks like they did too much unnecessary stuff to it and the annoying ass badges. they had one goddamn job and that was to give us cod 4 not cod 4 with advanced warfare sounds and badges. smh i hope i'm not the only one with this gripe. obviously all the downvotes is coming from kids who only started playing cod at like black ops and advanced warfare cause if you played cod 4 back in the days when it was released you would know what i'm complaining about but of course you guys don't have the nostalgia of playing the original.
By badges you mean the thing's that pop up when you get "first blood" ect? I like those, they've been in it since Modern Warfare 2. If anything I wish they were a bit more noticable like in MW2/Black ops, just hope they don't add the weed emblem again -.-
As someone who put in 100 hours on cod4 in my gaming prime, I can understand your point. But those are small things that we can easily get used to. The real fun and nostalgia lays upon the gameplay. As long as they can nail the gameplay I'll be happy, won't need another game for a while
How is it difficult to have a game in HD with more clear graphics? Bluepoint can do it right.
To be fair, Bluepoint's games pretty much look exactly the same (with small things like pop-in still being in place) as the original games, except they're in HD and may have a higher framerate. They pretty much justt reverse engineer the games, and leave them as they were. People expect more from remasters of PS3 games compared to PS2 games. This remaster adds tons of effects, lighting, sounds, new animations, interface elements, etc, so it's a bit different.
Bluepoint dont just do improved framerate and HD, for example with the Uncharted collection they made a new user interface, new assets and tweeks to the core gameplay and improved character control, etc. Plus they gave Gravity Rush similar treatment.
The Uncharted Trilogy looks insanely good. You can't tell it's a remaster of older games.
To be fair, the Uncharted games already looked amazing, and were way ahead of their time. I own tons of remasters and collections from Bluepoint, and they all pretty much look the same as the originals in terms of the basic look of the games (except with the expected upgrades like resolution and framerate I've mentioned). COD4 Remastered actually looks like a different game. The lighting is COMPLETELY different. In terms of gameplay changes, the pretty much just made U1 and U3 feel a bit more like Uncharted 2. I'm not putting down Bluepoint or anything - they're great (they should have been he guys to remaster the Tony Hawk games, as they can reverse engineer code from retail discs). But they don't really put upgrades this huge in their games. If you just look at Uncharted Collection on Youtube, it's hard to see the differences. COD4 Remastered's revisions are immediately apparent, in as low as a 360p video. Do you get what I'm saying now?
@Lucas - Sounds impressive. Gonna have a look.
Haha at the answer when asked if they changed the music.
Too bad they changed the voice overs though, the old ones were much better. Watched some gameplay on youtube and especially the russian voice over was really annoying.
They changed the voices??? FML why
still only has 3 killstreaks
And they managed to fudge it up...who ever thought it was a great idea to allow the heli to get more killstreaks is a moron and needs to be fired ¬_¬
Seriously the heli shouldn't count towards the kill streak
two people can take out a heli in 5 seconds. dont offer yourself to be a headless chicken prematurely.
2 LMG mags can take down a heli. Or if everyone concentrate on the heli your team can take it down before it kills anyone.
How it should be
Yes, that's how real men play. Get more of your kills from skills rather than relying on the game to do it for you
Probably the most coding work Call of Duty has ever seen to thier code in the past decade was just from this game alone. LOL
Raven Software still ranks pretty high in the underappreciated category. They always managed to produce very solid games.
i remember Hexen on N64 back in the day, solid game indeed and also singularity in 2010, another underrated game
Hexan , wow I remember that game on pc
I thought it was more of a cut and paste bc all the maps weren't there...
I'm excited for mW but iW looks really bad
like advanced warfare so
The real IW (infinity ward) is Respawn. Titanfall 2 beta was amazing
Will definitely check it out
Can't wait for this and Infinite. Going to be taking up too much of time!
Yes, although I think they should have kept the old announcers and in-game icons. The new ones are nigh-on identical to AW's which is slightly jarring. Can't wait for this to be released standalone. All we need now is a BC 2 (w/ DLC and Vietnam) and I'll be delighted!
Campaign on October 4th, sweet!
I'll be pirating MWRemaster since I never played it.
Shame it won't sell since its locked behind a $80 paywall. Don't worry though it'll definitely release as a standalone once they see low sale numbers.
You really believe it won't sell lol
After MW2, i was done with the series.. This was a last gen game, so im waiting on a completely new experience...
Can't wait for the cool emblem to buy. Ahh the dark matter camo.Can't wait kid today have no idea what about to hit them.
We actually want a copy paste job.
40 dollars minimum. My guess is full 60 in 6 months. Retail box with all of the maps.
But will problably feel like it.
Well i think Cod4 had its time don't get me wrong when it 1st came out I was never off it. To me when it was only out it was the best fps id ever played might look better now but it's in the past to me I'll not be getting it as for this new cod na same old same old doesnt intrest me at all so I'll be going for bf1. If you get cod4 & you've never played it you'll prob love it so enjoy if you get it.
Raven should work on remastering Quake 4, I'd tech 4 hasn't aged well
Gamers want something different from the seemingly jaded FPS genre, but will the WWI setting and combat be the changes gamers wish to see? Maybe they really do want fast paced modern military shooters, replete with future tech, blackholes, wall runs, zombies, and ray guns.
That's funny because every cod since has been a copy paste of modern warfare but the remastered cod 4 isn't modern warfare. This person is a fucking moron.
Should have done MW2 instead
i wouldn't mind copy / pasting it with updated res and textures. Idk how hard it is to remaster a game from the ground-up but having everything seems like it makes it a lot easier. I hope they rebalance some perks though. Stopping power was always op just like the GL. oh well hope the pro-mod scene comes back to make those wrongs, right again.
This is one game I would have told them, take the low road and make it a copy and paste job (for the fear with the risk of the f*** up they might make trying to do an actual remake). There, easier for them, and us.
