Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is now available on Steam

After over six months of waiting, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has finally been released on Steam as a standalone game. 
While many longtime fans of the original may be jumping for joy right now, let's have a look at the game's price, £34.99, for a remaster of a 10-year-old game that is itself over eight months old. Beyond that, the game already has a £11.59 (currently £7.76) Variety Map pack and includes microtransactions. 
To put things into perspective Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare's Variety Map Pack was released for free and the game itself had no micro transactions in the game's multiplayer mode. This makes this new remaster seem like terrible value, releasing with a high price to then ask players for more money to access all of the game's content. 

Right now, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the latest game in the series is available for £19.99, with the Digital Legacy Edition, which includes a copy of Modern Warfare Remastered, costing £37.19. This means that for £1.20 extra Modern Warfare Remastered purchasers can get a copy of Infinite Warfare alongside Modern Warfare Remastered, which may be worth it for you if you enjoy Call of Duty's campaign modes. 



Below are the PC system requirements for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. To say the least, the game is very easy to run by today's standards, even at maximum settings. 



    • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit or later
    • Processor: Intel Core i3-3225 @ 3.30GHz or equivalent
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB / AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
    • Sound Card: DirectX 11 Compatible
    • Additional Notes: Disk space requirement may change over time.

Stole it ages ago. Yes, I admit it. Got bored very quickly. You can soon tell it's an old game with no modern ideas in it.Quote

Wow. Just wow. I picked up Infinite Warfare for £10 knowing I could "upgrade" to get Modern Warfare for £25. I've been waiting for a sale on that because it's still steep for a remastered game, but damn have they got balls asking £35 straight up for the remaster alone.

[EDIT] I just checked to see if the "Upgrade to Legacy Edition" had gone down in price due to the standalone release. Much to my disappointment it's been removed entirely with the only option to buy for full retail price. What a load of bollocks.

[EDIT2] It is still there, but it's under the Infinite Warfare page now. I wonder how many they've caught out as wishlisting that option in the past put Modern Warfare on the list. Oh, and it's gone down by a massive £1. Still waiting for a sale; I may have loved Modern Warfare in its day but I refuse to get ripped off over nostalgia.Quote

Game wasn't all it was hyped up to be. Not sure why everyone was hyped for it. It was only good because it was the first modern FPS game for COD in terms of gameplay and the technology behind it with graphics/etc. Yeah it's story was not boring but still, it wasn't all that greatQuote
