This year, Call of Duty has dropped its campaign from its list of playable game modes. But why? and at what cost?
they purposefully started making lacklustre singe players so that their fanboys could say ,' but the single player has been terrible for a while, who cares we don't need it!'
well tahts not true, call of duty has always been a bad game as a standard FPS shooter Casual gamers don't know what single player is, they only know multiplayer, ask the new generation gamer. Sure Call of Duty started as hardcore but after 3rd series it died down long time ago. This is why the company is able to subtract single player because there is no fps gamer that actually likes it.
Or just more casual gamers than fans of shooters with an involved plot, which as already been noted began to die at inception of MP.
If the game sells like crazy, then they'll probably not make them anymore. Or maybe one day, they'll make one, and talk about the amazing return of the SP campaign, and how they put so much effort into it to make it the best thing ever. If the game doesn't sell well, or fails to live up to expectations(because it'll sell well), then they'll re-examine if they should maybe spend a bit more money to provide a campaign.
Infinity Ward already mentioned few months ago that there Campaign is not going anywhere but i don't about Sledgehammer.
Sledgehammer although the newest studio of the lot has had the strongest campaigns recently with aw and WW2 they know how to tell a story
This game blows.
As a huge COD fan and an avid contributor to offline specific threads, offline modes, custom games etc. I certainly think the rumours that Treyarch scrapped their original vision of BO4 halfway through, the 'story' content they do have is online only, it links all to those rumours about a weird time travel esqe story, the multiplayer i love to bits, however the custom game settings are literally broken, not exaggerating, there is literal settings that do not work in the options menu. Its the roughest launch i've seen for COD, and i have been with COD since day 1 with COD1, i certainly hope this isn't a pattern starting, i really do hope for a MW4 or something with a solid campaign as well as offline support (bots etc)
"Its the roughest launch i've seen for COD, and i have been with COD since day 1 with COD1," Fake news or you have a very short memory. WW2 launch was way rougher.
Didn't MW2's multiplayer borderline not work on PS3 at launch for a few days?
This has been one of the smoothest launches in the recent years, even if you dont like the absence of the single player campaign Infinity Warfare was unplayable for the first 24 hours, and WW2 for the first two weeks almost
WW2 worked fine on launch for me the bugs I experienced were all related to the hub world so quite minor. Actually WW2 was the best launch as someone forgot to turn triple xp of at one point so gamers were leveling up at 5x the rate when a double weekend was attached to the base triple xp
Infinity Ward already confirmed a campaign for Modern Warfare 4.
I hope not. Its the only part of it I play
I just started playing the SP COD Infinite Warfare on my PS4 pro, the only thing I can say is one hell of a roller coaster , so far I been hacking other robots, fighting my way out in a city been destroyed in realtime by huge ships, hop on a fighter go into space, destroying huge space ships with my fighter, using freaking electro gun to disseminate your enemys , using a grappling hook in space to take cover or grab your enemy Scorpion style , and this is only the beginning of the Single player. So the question is you prefer to change all that I just mentioned for a puny spawn kill, look for your pathetic little gun in a huge desolated map mechanic ? and yet pay 60 dlls for that ?, so sad if your answer is yes.
Infinite warfare campaign was fun as hell, I don't give a crap what the 'boots on the ground' morons say.
How is that game overall? I recall the E3 trailer where people were impressed, despite a lot of criticism over the game before hand, because people didn't realize the trailer was for COD. I thought what I saw was pretty cool, and something I may like to play. Still not really interested in the MP, but is it worth playing for the SP campaign?
So far the SP has been great , you have the main story and side quests , you can select those in a solar type of map, the SP is one hell of a ride at one point you calmly(not that calmly Alien ship descend style) getting into another planet, silently killing your enemy's minutes later you are fighting a huge arse robot and also controlling one for shooting support, and! minutes later you are hopping into a jet for a very damn cool fire fights, did I mention it looks damn awesome ?(lightning effects, details, sound effects, etc), I think I'm like 25 % in of the SP, I think I'm regretting not getting this COD when it was released today is damn cheap , and of course you have your zombie mode and MP mode.
I might have to check it out then. I was impressed with that E3 trailer 2-3 years ago, and I don't like FPS, and was always kind of indifferent to COD. Thanks for your impressions. I had forgotten about the game because it released to almost no fanfare, and was quickly forgotten by the press, and most people talking about COD.
I am enjoying this CoD more than any other. WW2 was just clunky. This is great and I never touched a single player campaign in CoD or BF. War Stories, is, and will be again, awful. That BF beta, awful, thank god this year CoD is beastly.
Never touched the campaign in BF then says War Stories (which was highly praised) was awful... XD okay. Someone clearly has no idea what they are talking about. COD this year is lacking in content and was very clearly lazily developed but it's hard to take someone who likes the Saw movies seriously.
Battlefield has never had a good campaign.
Bad company 2 had a great campaign.
I really enjoyed the campaign in WW2.
why bother spending the time developing an interesting, compelling story campaign when you can just copy/paste the same, repetitive MP game modes year to year? Laziness at its finest.
The sad thing is folks fall for it,I wouldn't be surprised that the same folks buying this are some of the same folks that scream they're not buying or supporting games with MTs.
Battlefield is pretty much the same, but I prefer it over COD. But I got COD BLOPS 4 over BFV because of Blackout and BFV is just not much of a change from BF1. Everyone hates on COD because it's released every year and a lot of the people are kind of toxic. But the changes are just as noticeable as any popular multiplayer franches, name one that changes drastically, every iteration. COD changes up some stuff too, but it keeps it's core mechanics because that what the fans like.
For once, I would rather play CoD than Bf, but there's no way in hell I'm shelling out 60 bucks for the content provided. 30 bucks for blackout only and I would be all over the damn thing
If they stop the sp campaigns in their games I won't be buying anymore including thousands of other gamers as well,though BO4 sold really well but it's a fact some folks didn't buy the game because of a lack of no sp campaign including paying full price for the game not having one.That could have been even more sales for the game if they would have implemented a sp campaign or knocked off $20 for a lack of.
I'm sure they wouldn't mind selling you all a campaign separately. And as I type this, my screen literally was just filled with an ad.
I'm done with Call of Duty. Won't buy the new one and if they continue doing this then WW2 will be the last Call of Duty game I purchase.
Hopefully they continue to produce them there's been a few standout campaigns over the years like mw, MW2, waw, black ops, advanced warfare and WW2. There's been missteps sure ghosts and iw come to mind but overall they have been quite good.
I’m glad they’re focusing on what they’re good at. If you haven’t beat every single player FPS campaign that you deem more enjoyable than a typical cod campaign and that has come out in the last couple of years, go do that, then you can say you want one from call of duty. We aren’t losing value, it’s just being redirected Like, I’m glad breath of the wild didn’t throw in crappy multiplayer, and redirect value and effort put into the single player to do it.
they will not get rid. im sure the devs like being creative.
Why put effort into creating SP content when absent mind parents will easily hand their credit card info over to little Timmy & Suzy. Game devs know this, so they sit back making minimal MP content because those lobotomized f*cktards will click buy on whatever rainbow afro or liquorice thong is available to wear for $4.99 this week!
They could have some human decency and sell the fucking game for 40 dollars instead of a whopping 60. Getting rid of the campaign means they should drop the price point. A lot of the production costs go to campaign assets anyways. So there should be no reason the game is still 60 bucks
I feel that the campaign is going to be dlc
who cares about the CoD singleplayer? most ppl eho buy the game go straight to the multiplayer anyways.
i bought it and started it up all excited, until I figured out there was no single player. Money down the drain, I would get a refund if I could, will never turn that game on again and will be looking better into reviews before I buy next time
Do whatever gets them most money. I never play trash of duty so do whatever they need loll
