Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Confirmed For Standalone Purchase

The standalone release comes after Activision rolled out the new high definition edition along last year's Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare as a bonus for those buying the deluxe edition. Multiplayer that redefined the FPS genre. "Modern Warfare" cemented "Call of Duty" as a must-play series, and the title went on to sell tens of millions of copies.

Todays announcement only covered the PlayStation 4 version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered but one has to assume it will be just like all other Call of Duty content the last couple years and will arrive on Xbox One and PC thirty days later. While this will likely be glorious news to the first-person shooter's fans, the company failed to acknowledge exactly when it will be coming to PC and Xbox One.

The game can be downloaded from the PlayStation Store for $40 on June 27, enabling fans of the series to indulge in the full campaign mode and all 16 multiplayer maps. The package does not include the Modern Warfare Remastered Variety Map Pack.

It's surprising that Activision chose to wait on this news until after E3, but perhaps they didn't want to take away hype from Call of Duty: WWII. Now, Activision is fully exploiting the demand for the return of the modern warfare game, where players follow Captain Price, Gaz, and Soap around the world to stop an extremist from terrorizing the world.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare may be old by, well, modern standards, but its gameplay holds up very well.
