The PlayStation list for the hotly anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Trophies has been revealed. Those who purchase select editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be able to play the Modern Warfare Remastered campaign 30 days early. It makes sense then that the Trophy list has surfaced when the game will be playable on Oct, 5. The multiplayer aspect of the game will not be available until the proper launch date. Xbox One owners will have to wait to play the campaign it seems.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare never had a Trophy list on the PS3, as the game came out well before the Trophy mechanic was added. Even so, of the 51 Trophies, 37 are the same as the Achievements that could be unlocked by playing the Xbox 360 version. The below image shows the 13 brand new Modern Warfare Remastered Trophies, and it’s more than likely that the Xbox One Achievement list will mirror this. Apart from the Platinum Trophy, of course. There are still no multiplayer Trophies, which suggests to me that they have concentrated their efforts on the beloved single player campaign.
Of particular note is the “Time Paradox” Trophy, which tasks the player with killing Makarov, the primary antagonist from Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3. Now, as Makarov needs to be alive to feature in the second and third games, killing him in the first would seem to cause a slight paradox. A Time Paradox, you could say. It will be interesting to see how they implement his demise. In the mission “All Ghillied Up”, Makarov is actually present, and witnesses the assassination attempt on Zakhaev. Maybe we will be getting the chance to put Makarov in our crosshairs for the Modern Warfare Remastered Trophies, and subdue him before he causes trouble. The power of hindsight. There’s also another Trophy relating to the same mission, “Man versus Machine”. This Trophy gently coaxes us to play “All Ghillied Up” in a slightly different way; by being seen, finding a rocket launcher, and blowing up a helicopter. The opposite of stealth.
It will always be welcome news when new Trophies or Achievements are added to renowned classics. It gives the players a new way to play the game, and can add new dimensions of difficulty. For example, the “Weapon Master” Trophy challenges the player to use basically every weapon from the single player campaign. Chasing this Trophy may allow us to find a new rifle we’ve never used before, and could give us a new way to approach a mission. One thing’s for sure, “Mile High Club” is going to enrage us all over again.
