Singapore F1 Track to be included in the new Call of Duty
Activision has confirmed that they will include the Singapore F1 race track in their upcoming Call of Duty, Modern Warfare II game.
It is not the first time that the Singapore F1 racetrack is featured in a video game. The iconic F1 night race was featured in many of Electronic Arts F1 series and Need For Speed, but it may be the first time to be featured in a First Person Shooter game.
From the video posted by the game developer, the scene is set in the night and there are a few iconic structures that were included. One of the more obvious inclusion is the Singapore Flyer. At 165m tall, the ferris wheel is probably the second tallest observation wheel in the world - a mere 2.6m shorter than the High Roller in Las Vegas. In the video, you can also see a burning Marina Bay Sands hotel in the background. There is no mention of the hotel being part of the gameplay but shooting your way thru an infinity pool at a 200m height may a fun affair for some.
The official sponsor for Singapore's F1 race is not included in the game. Singapore Airlines will feel a little left out as their branding has been replaced by made-up airline brand Authentic Airlines. Branding of the racing team and other sponsors were also not included and it is likely due to copyrights. Here is the tweet by the developer and a video that shows the cinematic scenes in the game.
Call of Duty's Modern Warfare II 2022 will include crossplay between different platforms and is available for pre-order now. Early access to the game for Playstation with be as early as 15 September and for Xbox & PC it will be on the following weekend on September 22.
