Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare teasers destroy Nuketown in glitchy new video

Nuk3town offline teaser

Call of Duty continues its slow inevitable march towards reveal, release, criticism, praise and – eventually – dreamless slumber before it is next reincarnated, with a cheery teaser video.

For the best FPS games PC has to offer, look no further.

The video, which appears to have been recorded in the future and sent into the past where our codecs are not quite advanced enough, depicts a man from the Settlement Defense Force saying scary things.

Named "Know Your Enemy" the script reads like that one kid at school who wasn't very strong but made up for it by picking a lot of fights he knew he could win.

Also, at some point in the techno-glitchery, the words "Nuketown offline" appear which is a reference to the teaser scene which has been playing at the end of matches on the iconic map during Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's "Nuk3town weekend".

The scene depicts a spaceship obliterating the map followed by the Nuketown offline message and the same skull image which appears throughout the Know Your Enemy transmission.

I couldn't care less about Call of Duty. Not my thing. Nice for those who like it, but I'm more inclined towards creativity and novelty. Though I have to admit that outside of Advanced Warfare, that one screenshot is more interesting than anything that's come out of the franchise in years. The video, however, is typically uninspired.

Advanced Warfare was strange, wasn't it? They got High Moon for that, the Transformers games people. The Deadpool game people. And ... I cared about that a little bit because the single-player campaign had a Frogger section. A brilliant, trollish Frogger section that was wonderfully endearing. It wasn't enough to tempt me to buy a Call of Duty game, but it was oh so very High Moon.

That screenshot right there? That's hardly a Call of Duty aesthetic. I think they're floundering now with their mainstream having lost interest in the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over again. Sooo... They don't really know what they're doing. They don't know who they're trying to appeal to any more. I got that feeling with Advanced Warfare.

I'm interested, but only in how much this will alienate their mainstream. The video games market is getting a little bit more interesting. Could use even more Japanese video games, though. I miss those.

Would you like some cheese wioth that whine? Seems like "I" is your favorite word ... well guess what ...NO ONE gives a flying fuc* what YOU think about the game. It's extremely successful regardless what YOUR tiny brain and big ego thinks. Quote from Dec 2016 "ATVI notes, "Call of Duty is retail's #1 grossing console franchise in the U.S. for the 8th consecutive year" ... COD is a winner you are a whiner or should I say loser ... go cry to Mommy .. it's is rated M for Mature so you shouldn't even be looking at it ...
