"Are you ready for War?"
―Official Game Tagline

Call of Duty: Federation War is a first person shooter game developed by Morningwood Studios, Frost Games and Nakamura Interactive, and published by Morningwood Arts for Xbox One and PS4, serving as one of the launch titles for the release of Xbox One and PS4. Set in the year of 2017 during the Federation War, commonly mistaken for World War III. Call of Duty: Federation War is the first of Morningwood Arts' series of Call of Duty games, which is powered by Wood Tech.

Call of Duty: Reawakening, sequel to the first, was released on November 3rd, 2015 following the success of Call of Duty: Federation War. The series then became widely known as the "best Call of Duty games ever created since World at War and the Modern Warfare series" by critics across the world.

There were two storylines in the game, Morningwood Studios' storyline and Frost Games' storyline. Frost's storyline was an alternate side story of the main storyline and contained a different set of characters within the Federation.

In addition to Morningwood Arts being successful on their Call of Duty games, Activision gave Nakamura Interactive permission to start work on their own intake of the Call of Duty games and that game became Call of Duty: Infected. Set in an alternate timeline of the events of Call of Duty: Federation War.

On January 8th, 2018, Morningwood Arts released the Dawn of the Red Star edition, a remastered version of the game using the Semblance engine with much better lighting, graphics, and improved frame rate for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Gameplay

Much like the original Call of Duty games, the core gameplay was the same to that of Infinity Ward's Call of Duty games while still keeping to their own originality. Morningwood Studios had developed some of their own features and gameplay options that would change how people would see the difference between Activision's Call of Duty and Morningwood Arts' Call of Duty games.

The special features that Morningwood Studios introduced in Singleplayer was TeamPlay, an interactive system which allows the player to direct friendly NPCs to pick up found quest items, certain weapons, take positions or to go into formation behind the player, and Tactical Vision, a system that enables the player to activate the visor on their character's helmet to project a computer generated world to find certain objects, directions to the objectives and quest items.

Players were only able to change the color schemes on their character. Once the player finds all quest items, they would unlock an achievement/trophy and unlock Private's character skin for use in Multi-player. After finishing the campaign on Overlord difficulty unlocks Private's customized weapon for use in Multi-player.

The multi-player of the game was handled by Nakamura Interactive, and weren't changed as much. The loadout system was changed to allow the player to change their MP character's color scheme, patches, helmets, skin color, armor, gender and emblems, even skins that override the current settings of the MP character. There are 100 ranks in each of the 30 prestige levels in multi-player with each prestige having a unique rank emblem. After reaching the maximum rank, the player is able to prestige and when prestiged, the player is given a special unlock key to gain access to six World War II era weapons, but cannot unlock a select few as those weapons were already owned content that came with the special, limited and complete editions of the game, and awards for reaching prestige. The keys were used for unlocking World War II era weapons that only cost five keys for each weapon. The prestige awards consist of unlocking an extra class slot, XP boosters, special character equipment, different game announcers and much more.

Cooperative is a gamemode of the game, developed by Frost Games and has its own storyline instead of Morningwood Studios' storyline. The gamemode allows 2-4 player online missions and 2 player offine missions. The special features of Cooperative only include Tactical Vision from the Singleplayer gamemode. The gamemode focuses on characters within the Federal Special Forces of the Red Star Federation in an alternate timeline. Finishing every co-op mission online on Overlord difficulty, alone, unlocks Private's weapon camo in Multi-player.

Singleplayer

The story occurs before and during the Federation War, and an epilogue mission plays where the player is a mysterious man who is captured by unknown soldiers and is later executed.

An Australian-Canadian-German-Japanese-Russian alliance forms and aims to overthrow the United States of America and replace them as the dominating superpower, what was supposed to be a peace negotiation quickly turned to all-out war across the world.

Players take control of Private, the player's character throughout the majority of the game, excluding Co-op and the missions Nuclear Winter, First strike and Ambushed. Private is always seen with a scarf, covering his mouth and is never seen with it off not even in cutscenes.

Difficulties

Morningwood Studios has added a bit of a few changes of their own when it came to the difficulty settings of the game's Singleplayer by giving the player a different set of weapons that vary on the setting of the difficulty.

Apprentice

The difficulty Apprentice is the equivalent of Recruit, but in Federation War, the difficulty sets the player character's weapons to a different set which depends on its setting.

Apprentice has the A.I's damage output to 0.75, and their damage input at 1.75. The player spawns in with an M4A1, M9 and full grenades cap. Friendly NPC's spawn in with the same set.

Knight

The difficulty Knight is the equivalent of Regular whereas in Federation War, the difficulty is renamed to give off a little vibe towards the Red Star Federation being an ultranationalist organization.

Knight increases the A.I's damage output to 1, and their damage input at 1. The player spawns in with an AR160, FN57 and half grenades cap. Friendly NPC's spawn in with the same set.

Master

The difficulty Master is the equivalent of Hardened, but in Federation War, the difficulty has a few different tweaks than Hardened in the original Call of Duty games.

Master increases the A.I's damage output to 1.50, and their damage input at 0.75. The player spawns in with a customized AK-12, customized Glock 17 and has only one grenade to use. Friendly NPC's spawn in with the same set, but with full grenades.

Overlord

The difficulty Overlord is the equivalent to Veteran, but in Federation War, it changes how things would proceed in Singleplayer as NPCs will not pick up found quest items.

Overlord increases the A.I's damage output to 2, and their damage input at 0.50. The player spawns in with a customized M249 LMG with extended mags, laser sight and a holo-sight and with no grenades. Friendly NPC's spawn in with the same set, but with full grenades.

Reviews

The game received very positive reviews from fans, YouTubers, and critics about the game's Singleplayer as it being one of the best, having a score of 8.9 and slowly growing up to 9.

However, many fans gave negative reviews about the multi-player as some of the perks were too overpowering when combined with the right set as Nakamura Interactive would say "The right set of perks make you strong" and fail to see that its overpowering.

With negative reviews about the Multi-player, however, many fans, YouTubers, and critics have said that they Cooperative storyline have "blown them away" with the way it went down as well as being the only Call of Duty with a developing Co-op storyline of a different set of characters than Shadow 6-5 and have praised the co-op's experience.
