After a few weeks of leaks, Activision finally unveiled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare today. The game appears to be a soft reboot of the franchise but tells a new story. Captain Price is back and he looks better than ever. According to the publisher, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare should launch on October 25 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. Keep in mind that the PC version is exclusive to Blizzard's Battle.net launcher.
The game's trailer features photorealistic visuals and looks like a step above Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and even Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. According to an in-depth analysis by Digital Foundry, the engine powering Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been in development for five years, and should be used in future games from other developers as well. You can read an excerpt from the report below.
Hopefully, the new engine will work well with next-generation machines as they're right around the corner. However, only time will tell. Until then, we can enjoy the experience on current-generation machines.
Are you interested in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare? Let us know. You can preorder the game right now through Amazon. There are a lot of different versions to choose from which provide multiplayer perks.
Look who's back!
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
Captain Price and his cigar make a return
The stakes have never been higher as players take on the role of lethal Tier One operators in a heart-racing saga that will affect the global balance of power. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare engulfs fans in an incredibly raw, gritty, provocative narrative that brings unrivaled intensity and shines a light on the changing nature of modern war.
Hopefully COD/Activision learned their lesson and are getting back to basics. Too much gimmicky junk in the last few iterations. The last COD I bought was the Re-Mastered COD4-MW LOL.
