Activision and Infinity Ward released a new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare video giving us an overview of Combat Rigs.
“Infinite Warfare’s Multiplayer introduces the evolution of the Call of Duty loadout system with all-new Combat Rigs.
Customize your loadout to your particular playstyle with six different Combat Rigs, each with three distinct Payloads and three unique Traits to supplement your prowess in the field.
Choose from the mid-range offensive Warfighter, tactical Stryker, long-range sharpshooter Phantom, heavily defensive Merc, stealthy FTL, or close-quarters Synaptic Combat Rig.”
“Combat Rigs (Rigs) are the ultimate combat systems. Each Rig is a cutting-edge, tactical combat suit worn by the player and is built for totally different styles of play.
Designed as the cornerstone to a player’s loadout and play style, Rigs allow for a high level of power and customization through their selectable ‘Payload’ and ‘Trait.’
A Payload is either a high power weapon, or ability that opens up new strategic gameplay. Traits are persistent abilities which reinforce and complement each playstyle.
Each Rig is outfitted with 3 distinct Payloads and 3 unique Traits to choose from before entering combat.
Choosing a Rig provides strategic options for players, as Rigs provide a customized suite of tactical options for every engagement.”
Infinite Warfare multiplayer “combines a fluid momentum based movement system, player focused map design, deep customization, and a brand new combat system to create an intense gameplay experience where every second counts.”
The Beta starts tomorrow, October 14 (lasts for 3 days) on PS4 and Xbox One to follow soon. Beta isn’t available on PC.
