Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reveal Trailer, It Will Be A Dark Reboot For The Franchise
Activision revealed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the latest game in the long-running series of first-person shooters. In a new trailer released Thursday, we got our first look at the rebooted Modern Warfare.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released October 25, 2019, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Here is what we know so far:
- Modern Warfare will ditch the annual pass model, delivering free maps, content, and post-launch events to all players. We don’t know what the new model will look like, but the old one offered an average of four paid map packs for each game. There still might be other kinds of paid content in this game, but Activision isn’t saying just yet.
- The game will feature cross-play support between PC and consoles. Kotaku asked Activision for clarification on whether or not this means Xbox One or PS4 players could play together, but no information is available at this time. The PC version is exclusive to Battle.net
- Per Activision, Modern Warfare will feature a completely new engine.
- In the single-player campaign, “Players will engage in breathtaking covert operations alongside a diverse cast of international special forces throughout iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East.”
- The cooperative play also returns, in what Modern Warfare dubs “Elite Operations.”
- An “immersive narrative experience” spanning all three of the game’s modes—single-player, co-op, and competitive multiplayer—is planned, although details on what that means are scant.
