After the fuss yesterday about the Infinite Warfare disk being required to play Modern Warfare Remastered, Activision have clarified the issue in a new FAQ.
While Modern Warfare is a download you will need the Infinite Warfare disk in you machine to play Modern Warfare on both PS4 and Xbox One. Those who use Steam have it easy and will just be given a single key that accesses both games.
Here are the full details:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is a full game digital download that will be included in the Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition and Legacy Pro Edition on PlayStation 4. The digital download is redeemed via a voucher code on an insert in the box. The Infinite Warfare game disc must be inserted to play Modern Warfare Remastered. Internet connection is required.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is included on the Infinite Warfare Xbox One disc (no voucher code required) in the Legacy Edition and Legacy Pro Edition of Infinite Warfare. Before Modern Warfare Remastered can be played, an additional download is required. The game disc must be inserted to play Modern Warfare Remastered. Internet connection is required.
A Steam key will be provided in the Legacy Edition of Infinite Warfare that will provide access to both Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered. Internet connection is required.
Presumably the Infinite Warfare disc has to be inserted to play the game to stop nefarious individuals from downloading Modern Warfare Remastered and then selling on the Infinite Warfare disk as quickly as possible. (Admit it, you're thinking about it.)
The small print goes on to say that an internet connection is required, though it doesn’t specify whether this is needed just to download Modern Warfare Remastered or if you need to remain online to play.
