After 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, the game will launch on October 25 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The PC version is exclusive to Blizzard's Battle.net launcher.

While the title's reveal trailer blew everyone away with its photorealistic visuals in a new engine, the real highlights from the announcement have to be the fact that it supports cross-play and ditches the season pass. According to Activision, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare features cross-play for consoles and PC, meaning that PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players can all play together.
