The History Of Call Of Duty: Pt 1 Call Of Duty
Call Of Duty is one of the main games that our Custom Rapid fire controllers are designed for. As a result, we thought we would have a little fun looking back at the origins of the Call Of Duty series.
The History Of Call Of Duty
Call Of Duty 2003 PC, NGage, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
The first Call Of Duty was a very ambitious game. With an American, British and Soviet campaign it was as close to actually being in Saving Private Ryan as you could get at the time. Developed by Infinity Ward, the game was just a huge, huge success and would eclipse Medal Of Honor as the preferred first person shooter.
The campaign was not the longest, but the intense multiplayer would more than make up for it. Released in 2003, Call Of Duty would go on to win many game of the year awards and at the time, many people were excited to see what would be next in this series!
The original Call Of Duty was only released on PC and for some bizarre reason, a port was also done on the Nokia NGage. It would make the jump to consoles, but it would not happen until 2009 as part of the special editions of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
The impact made by this first Call Of Duty game cannot be underestimated. 20 years from now, gamers will look back at what a landmark release this was in the world of gaming. As popular and well received as it was, you cannot imagine that the people at Infinity Ward and Activision ever imaged the series would explode into what it has become now.
