'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare' release date, news: Beta test refreshes Terminal map


“Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s” beta test is already slowly drawing to a close with a definite end come Monday morning. Nevertheless, an update on the Terminal map landed just before the trial run ends which could be a good bonus for those who are patiently waiting for the title to drop.

At this time, the duration of the dry run may have already ended. But for those who were able to jump on the wagon a little bit early and soak in the spectacle of what is to come for the title, the revamp on the terminal plan is nothing but a welcome improvement.

A trailer in accordance with the reveal of the refreshed guide starts with the squads running through the terminal which is now situated somewhere in space. Unfortunately, what started as a smooth sailing operation caught a snag when one squad was sensed by the metal detector prompting the alarms to go off. From there, the situation shifts to chaotic rounds of battle that involves hyperkinetic movement, impressive new technology and alien-looking aircraft descending in the area.

Gamespresso lauds developer Infinity Ward’s decision to revisit the map give that its original iteration had been controversial in “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.”

The map is free for anyone who pre-ordered “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” on major consoles such as PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Paul Thurrott, an award-winning tech journalist, gave a sneak peek of what Xbox One gamers can expect from the 13th primary installment in the “Call of Duty” series. Given that the beta test was first made available for PS4 players, the version that Xbox One owners already had significant developments on its multiplayer mode.

“We get access to five maps now: Frontier, Frost, and Throwback, which were the original three, plus Precinct, which was added partway into last week, and then the remake of the fan-favorite map Terminal,” he wrote on his website. “There are four game types available: Team Deathmatch, Domination, Defender, and Frontline. (PS4 users also get Kill Confirmed, so maybe that will be added over time). And there are three available combat rigs: Warfighter, Merc, and Synaptic.”

“Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” will arrive on Nov. 4.
