Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the most iconic and has been fan favorite Call of Duty game for years. So when Activision announced the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered version the global community could not have been happier. Quite some time has passed with new details about the game emerging every day. In order to help you decide whether you should buy the new remastered version, we’ve noted down all the changes between the old and remastered version for your consideration.

The Gameplay

As far as changes in the gameplay are concerned the answer is both yes and no. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a relatively old game, a game that we have played for years. Chances are you won’t find nothing new in the narrative or gameplay but with recent FPD games coming to the market like Titanfall 2 and Overwatch it will still feel like a breath of fresh air by taking us back to the slower, simpler and more intense gameplay style. The remastered version sticks to the roots of the original, though the mechanics might be more fluid but the gameplay in general hasn’t changed the slightest. Staying true to the its roots, the game has only three kill streaks which are,  a UAV, an airstrike, and an attack chopper. As far as the campaign narrative is concerned we’re all in for a teat. The improved graphics and mechanics shine the brightest in the campaign as compared to the multiplayer. The remastered version adds a whole new depth to the story of the game.

The Graphics

Let’s move on to the most major and most enjoyable change in the remastered version, the graphics. The graphics of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not be just remastered but will be made new from the ground up to meet the visual requirements of the current gen consoles. Compared to the old version the graphics are entirely new and are on par with upcoming FPS games like Battlefield 1. The studio has clearly put in a lot of work to make the remastered edition a visual spectacle and all that hard work pays off. The game looks truly stunning and the extensive focus on the details makes the whole gameplay a whole lot more immersive. It adds a new layers to the game’s already cinematic feel by adding stunning realistic facial expressions, wrinkles, distinctive facial hair, and much more to the characters as well as extra graphical features. A fine example of this would be playing the game in a map that is raining. As the rain falls you will be able to see the drops drippng down from your gun and body. You can expect a lot more visual changes when you buy the game.

The Performance 

Even with the new added graphics, visual detail and cinematic effects the game truly works and runs smoothly on both consoles and PC’s. I played the game on my PC and even with highest settings on a GTX 1060 found that game to be running above 60FPS at all times, both offline and online. As far as performance is concerned the game truly feels like a work of art. I was genuinely surprised to see that even with the addition of new elements, like NPC’s and vehicles the game ran just as well as the original.

The New Features

Call of Duty Remastered isn’t just the old game with new graphics, there are quite a few significant new changes made and new features added to make the game a lot more enjoyable.

The Menu

A major change that is coming to the remastered version is to the in game menus and home menu. As compared to the original the remastered version has a put a lot of work in making the menus look more appealing and interactive. Compared to the dull and plain looking menus of the original version the remastered version makes the menus look more modern and appealing as well as adding the character and weapon models to the side section. When you swap out C4’s for frag grenades you can see the change happen in real time on the character model. This doesn’t impact the gameplay in any way but makes the menu a lot more appealing and satisfactory to use.

Kill Cams

One thing that we all wish we had was a kill cam in the original modern warfare for more than single reason. The kill cams were introduced in MW2 and since then have become a rather fun part of COD games. Now you can finally see the last kill in slow-motion and rub it in people’s faces after you win….or lose.

The Sounds

Another thing that you would personally like about the remastered version is the new revamped and realistic sounds. You can tell the difference in the sounds by comparing the shots of the weapons when they fire between both versions. The audible difference in the sound really shows how much effort the developers put into remastering the game. Now when you play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare you can enjoy sound that are not just louder but also more realistic.


All in all, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is everything that fans hoped it would be and more. The gameplay is fluid, the performance is truly seamless and the graphics rival upcoming high end games making Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered a must get for any FPS fan out there.
