Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
Updated: Jul 15, 2019
On the 30th of May, Activision dropped the official release trailer for Modern Warfare. It shares the name of the original trilogy but does not share the universe. Modern Warfare is to introduce new features and gameplay that will set it apart from the original series.
From the trailer we learnt that fan-favourite Captain Price will be returning, it is deeply implied that the other members of the original team will be joining him. At the end of the trailer we hear this dialogue:
Unknown woman: “Who’s your team?”
Captain Price: “Some old comrades.”
Activision and Infinity Ward have implemented a new engine which supports impressive graphics and realistic character design.
During the trailer, we also see the new night-vision in action. It looks more detailed than in previous games. In the original trilogy, the night-vision appeared to just be a green filter placed over the screen.
Multiplayer will be online and local play. It will also support cross-play.
Modern Warfare was faced with mixed reviews at E3 this year. Many critics are worried that the gameplay could be too grim and harrowing for its players. Others think it’s a realistic look at war and explores the morally grey areas that come with it.
Price himself says: “There’s a fine line between right and wrong.”
There are three different versions of the game available to pre-order. The standard edition includes the game and an in-game tactical knife for £59.99. The Operator edition includes outfits called “All Ghillied Up”, “Crew Expendable” and “War pig” for £74.99. The Operator Enhances edition includes all of the above including 3,000 Call of Duty Points, which is an in-game currency, for £84.99
Modern Warfare will be available on the 25th of October 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
