Release Date: November 4

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One

Pre-order Price: $59.99

The Call of Duty franchise is introducing yet another into their magnificent line, only this one is raising some eyebrows. The crowd favorite for first person shooting games is going to space. What? Yes. The setting for this COD game will be on Earth’s last space ship, caught in an intergalactic war with other rebel groups in space. The game will be set in space, but there won’t be a ton of alien-human combat. Instead, the game will feature the hand to hand human combat and zero gravity situations that will definitely make things interesting. The second biggest and most notable change for Infinite Warfare? You are the captain of your team, and YOU give the orders. The game is playing off of themes that are found in Black Hawk Down and Saving Private Ryan. The idea of “no man left behind” and “the mission comes first” are going to be very prevalent in game play since you are the leader. Think this isn’t enough? When you purchase the Legacy Edition of Infinite Warfare, you also receive the remastered Call of Duty Modern Warfare as an added bonus!

The open-world Mafia games that everyone knows and loves is about to unleash mob havoc in a whole new world. This year’s game walks you back to 1968 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The new trailer reveals that combat will be brutal, and you will even be able to participate in turf wars against the Italian Mob to slow enemies down. This crime-focused open world game is similar to all o

f the others, but the one key feature that stands out is the cohesion between your objectives and the open world. Everything that you do influences the game and drive the storyline forward. This cohesion has been extremely hard to perfect in open-world games, but previews and reviews are already raving about this game.
