Infinite Warfare isn't the only Call of Duty game coming this year. Developer Infinity Ward is also releasing a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare — the game primarily responsible for turning Activision's military shooter series into one of video gaming's biggest franchises — on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The remaster was teased at the end of the Infinite Warfare trailer, but we have some additional details.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be included with the Legacy and Digital Deluxe editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which starts at $79.99. The remaster will include both the full campaign from the original game and 10 maps on which you'll be able to play the game's multiplayer modes. The updated version of the game will also get "vibrant current generation visuals," with Infinity Ward promising improved texture resolution, HDR lighting, revamped animations, particle effects, and other fancy touch-ups.

Last week, Activision teased a remastered Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on Twitter, tweeting both the "poop" and "pants" emoji as a reply to a user who promised two years ago to "shit [his] pants" if he ever heard the words "Call of Duty 4 PS4 remaster." Leaked promotional materials for the upcoming Infinite Warfare also hinted at the existence of a Modern Warfare Remastered.

A listing for a Call of Duty Modern Warfare Trilogy on Amazon UK also suggested that the three Modern Warfare games, released during the last console generation, would find their way to PS4 and Xbox One under the Activision Classics tag, but for now it seems like we're just getting the first one. It's not immediately clear whether you'll be able to get Modern Warfare Remastered without spending extra for the Legacy edition of Infinite Warfare, but Activision confirms that it is "a full game download," suggesting it may be purchasable later.
