The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare pre-order bonus is a Terminal remake

I like Nuketown well enough, but if it was going to be yet another pre-order bonus outside of Treyarch's line of Call of Duty games somehow, I'd be pretty pissed. Nope, it's a Terminal remake from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 --...   read

Here's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered in motion

This footage from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is how I remember the game's Crew Expendable mission feeling the first time I played it, which is a high compliment considering the original Modern Warfare released in 2007. Gosh, i...   read

 
 
Call of Duty review
The last time we checked in with Black Ops III's DLC, Treyarch started to slouch a bit. Eclipse was a great add-on all things considered, but it didn't shine in comparison to Awakening, which had some of the brighter maps in the entire series.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III's 'Descent' DLC has a giant dragon

Damn I love Treyarch, especially its DLC packs. Call of Duty is generally known as a somber, serious "hold X to pay respects" kind of series, but Treyarch games are often loaded with silly things like human on chicken love, and now, dr...   read

Bungie slept with wolves for Destiny

Destiny's forthcoming expansion Rise of Iron has wolves in it, so naturally, when I interviewed the add-on's executive producer Scott Taylor, I wanted to know if we'll be able to fight alongside them. "No," Taylor replied, dashing my hopes,...   read
