The new Call of Duty has been officially revealed and it’s called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It is not a sequel to Modern Warfare 3 but is a “re-imaging” of the Modern Warfare series. Infinity Ward wants to re-shift the series back to the intense focus on its gritty realism. The game seems to be a return to its former glory.
Unlike the previous entry Black Ops 4, the new Modern Warfare will feature a single-player campaign, which was the main focus of the reveal trailer. The name suggests that this isn’t a sequel but a reboot with some familiar faces returning, such as the famous Captain Price. The campaign will be split into two halves. In one half, you’ll play as a Tier 1 operator, a Special Forces soldier. The second half will see you take on the role of a rebel fighter living in the Middle East. Infinity Ward wanted to show a dual-perspective in story-line by showing the various viewpoints of a conflict. There will also be a cooperative mode, which will feature a collection co-op missions.
Modern Warfare will also be a step up in the graphics as it was built using a new, purpose built engine, which will highlight a high level of detail. The game will make use of extensive photogrammetry, which is technology that scans real-world objects to create virtual objects. This means that nearly everything in the game will have a lifelike feel to it. They even scanned an entire tank into the game.
The game will also have no season pass and will be updated with free maps and events for all players. There will also be cross-play support for the game across console and PC. Nothing has been said about a battle royale mode or the other multiplayer offerings for the game. We will see more of the game at E3 2019. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will release on October 25 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
