Infinity Ward and Activision have revealed that one of the fan-favorite maps from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be making a return to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Can you guess which map it is?
Game Informer revealed that the map making a comeback to this year's outing of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is Terminal. The map will be refashioned and remade for the sci-fi shooter after it made its debut in Modern Warfare 2 and then received a visual upgrade when it was re-released for_Modern Warfare 3_...for free. For anyone who pre-orders the newest game, they'll gain access to the map when the game launches on November 4 later this year for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
The newest iteration of the map will be set in space. It will still be a terminal... only this time it'll be a space terminal. In a concept picture we see that there's a space shuttle on what looks like a moon base. A baggage carrier is parked outside of what appears to be the main hub. You can check out the image below.
The earlier iterations of the map were a lot more modern. It took place in a standard airport terminal with some ins and outs where players could venture into a nearby airplane or pass through the baggage check, or generally duke it out in the main terminal.
The map was always known for being large, spacious and providing players lots of opportunities to flank and pop-out to attack their foes. It was one of the few maps in the Call of Duty series that wasn't a cramped, tiny, run-and-gun deathmatch fest.
For its appearance in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, I wonder exactly how the whole space element will work? The concept art teases the ability to head outside of the space port terminal and presumably battle it out in zero gravity. Of course, that raises the obvious question: how will the atmosphere work for a space port located on the moon?
Terminal in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare could work in a number of different ways, possibly by making it where players pass through a decompression area to get inside and outside of the facility...something quick and snappy to keep the flow of the map intact. Alternatively, this version of Terminal could take place within a space dome that's already oxygenated. That would make a lot of sense for being able to go into and out of the terminal itself. Of course, there's also the possibility that you'll just be a spacesuit the entire time and even the inside of the terminal itself will have zero gravity. There are a ton of possibilities and different ways to take the map.
You can look for the revamped Terminal map to go live with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare starting November 4, later this year during the fall for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
