Det inledade citatet på Gamezones intervju med #Infinity Ward förklarar egentligen allt - "Vi har gjort Andra Världskrigsspel längre än vad kriget varade"]. Att nästa del i #Call of Duty-serien utspelar sig i nutid är därmed förklarat men under pratstunden tar de även upp varför de valde en fiktiv konflikt och vilka filmer som har inspirerat dem.
The game seems to draw a lot from film sources (one stage is called “Charlie Don’t Surf”, in a nod to Apocalypse Now). What were some of the films that you took inspiration from for CoD 4?
Joel & Michael: I must’ve watched Black Hawk Down a bunch, and Enemy at the Gates to get the feel of Russian soldiers. But the biggest help was seeing the real deal. The US solider has a quality to them that we really wanted to capture.
You get a squad of marines together and they act a certain way. They all dip and they all have tobacco stains on them, so we wanted to make sure to have that in the game. Also, they would’ve taken my head if one of the tanks didn’t have “war pigs” written on it (laughs). We tried to draw as much of the art style from reality as possible.
