A month ago was posted on YouTube the trailer of the upcoming first-person shooter video game Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, but 3 million people “disliked” it and only 500,000 appreciated it. Some of them complained about the quality of graphics, while others created a new account just to hit the thumbs down button. Then, at the E3 event, Activision presented the game footage of the game and things didn’t look so bad anymore.
If you haven’t seen the disliked trailer of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, here it is:
It’s obvious why gamers have criticized the trailer and why the game has received a bad reputation. Many YouTubers suggested that the game needs a more boots-on-the-ground action, a better storyline and a futuristic setting with great graphics. Others have thught that the trailer was for Halo, because the storyline was similar. However, in order to reconcile with the angry fans, Activision has prepared them a nice surprise at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. The publisher has changed fans’ opinion after showing them a demo of the game with the main character Captain Nick Reyes, who fights on the streets of Geneva, Switzerland. You can check out the gameplay footage below:
Apparently, the game isn’t as bad as it looks in the trailer. “Imagine a scenario where the resources of Earth have been depleted and we have to go to another age of space exploration. It really gets accelerated. The need creates this technology. And that’s really what the central conflict is about: the control for the resources that are in space,” said Brian Horton, who’s the game’s art direct and who has been working for 21 years in the video game industry.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is expected to be released on November 4 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
