'Call of Duty' Blasts Off Into Space With Kit Harington
Developer Infinity Ward is taking Call of Duty into the far reaches of space for the first time. While Call of Duty: Ghosts had a level set inside and outside of an orbiting space station, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is taking a page out of Star Wars with epic space battles involving ship-to-ship dogfights and attacks on massive starships. There's also anti-gravity firefights outside of spacecraft, courtesy of a jetpack and grappling hook to navigate space. And the boots-on-the-ground experience is still a key focus of the action, although that ground will now go beyond Earth as distant planets are explored. Game of Thrones hero Kit Harington plays the antagonist in the new game's campaign, which posits a future in which the Settlement Defense Front has infiltrated space to harvest and control all resources.
