Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will utilize chain-based movement from Black Ops 3

Chain-based movement will return in this fall's annual installment.


Infinity Ward and Treyarch have rotated point position on Call of Duty installments for years, and Sledgehammer Games joined the rotation in 2014. With the series being passed to a different studio each year, it's inevitable that some aspects of each year's game will feel different than previous installments.

At the very least, players migrating from Black Ops 3 to Infinite Warfare this fall should feel comfortable moving around. In a tweet from earlier today, Infinity Ward allayed concerns by confirming that Black Ops 3's chain-based movement system "will feel natural" when it makes the jump to this year's game.

Chain-based movement alludes to parkour-style acrobatics like wall running and double jumping. GameStop's listing for Infinite Warfare likewise makes mention of "Call of Duty's popular chain-based movement system with ground-breaking gameplay innovations."

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be available on November 4 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4.
