Now that all of the announcements are out of the way, lets look at all of the other news to creep out of the weekend. We have updates, release dates, trailers and screenshots to peruse.


Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was updated to version 1.10. You can take a look at the patch notes below. In the meantime, season pass holders can also get their hands on a new weapon: the R-VN assault rifle. Non-Season Pass holders will be able to earn the base version of the rifle by getting 200 kills with another energy-based assault rifle like the R3K, Type-2 or Volk. Several weapons that had also only been available as part of the Quartermaster Collection can now be crafted from salvage, including the Reaver, Volk, Erad, DMR-1 and DCM-8. Finally, more weapon prototypes have entered the Quartermaster Collection, including the Axe, the first new melee weapon for the game.

This means that players can switch between modern and retro graphics at the touch of a button. They can also switch between modern and retro music/sfx.
