According to Jack, Infinity Ward has nailed the sound design, graphics, and crucial details that might go unnoticed during an intense gameplay session. For example, the water effects have been totally changed for the good. Now the water feels more realistic and practical, just like in real life. The simulation is done very well, especially when it comes to witnessing the ripples.

Weapon explosions and destructions are also much more believable this time, no matter what weapon is being used by Call of Duty players. And this is complemented by solid audio design and implementation. Once again, this is identical to how explosions mostly appear and sound like in reality.

Using something like a proximity mine when thrown in the water now makes it float on the surface, as it should, which is amazing. On the other hand, it will stay on the ground when put under the water, which is totally incredible. Similarly, using a shock stick when being inside the water will make the player’s operator react involuntarily. It’s because of the muscle spasms caused to one’s in-game character.

The awaited installment comes out next month on October 28, 2022.
