"Call of Duty Infinite Warfare" will launch on Nov 4. Infinity Ward

When “Call of Duty Infinite Warfare” was first introduced, it got the dislike of 2.89 million fans to date, giving it a rather bad record among trailers in the franchise and in gaming in general. However, Activision and Infinity Ward are back with a new trailer and more information on its upcoming space-set shooter.

The biggest gripe about some fans for “Call of Duty Infinite Warfare” is the fact that the developer did not seem to listen to fans. There has been a lot of call towards a more World War-leaning gameplay and experience, and the fact that this year’s iteration seems to be veering far off into space instead of back in time fueled the fire.

The new “Call of Duty Infinite Warfare” trailer Ship Assault seems to want to reverse fans’ opinion the first time they saw the trailer for the installment. While there is still a considerable number of dislikes than likes (8,850 vs. 6,300 as of writing), fans have been commenting on how good the game looks.

The clear and resounding opinion is that it is still far from what the fans wanted as a “Call of Duty” game. But Activision and infinity Ward now stand a chance for a much better reception for its “Call of Duty Infinite Warfare.”

Additionally, the publisher has confirmed that a familiar face will be seen in the game. Kit Harington, well-known for his role as Jon Snow in “Game of Thrones” will don the mask of the villain for “Call of Duty Infinite Warfare.”

According to a press release, this role is a dramatic shift for the actor, as he will be portrayed as the face of the enemy. This is combined with closely working with director Guy Ritchie, who was responsible for the live-action trailer Surprise for “Call of Duty Black Ops II.”

“Ki is an amazing talent, and the consummate pro. Our story is about an epic showdown of opposing forces, and Kit immersed himself into the role and truly became the embodiment of the enemy, the Settlement Defense Front. We can’ wait for fans to see Kit play an entirely different kind of character,” said Infinity Ward’s Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki.

Admittedly, “Call of Duty Infinite Warfare” is bringing something entirely new to the table, as The Verge noted. But fans can only wait to see whether or not the developer is able to turn this around as more details of the game are revealed. “Call of Duty Infinite Warfare” will be released on Nov. 4.
