Activision announces new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for October release

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Activision has been on the right track with fans with its recent games like Call of Duty: WWII and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The games went back to their roots and removed double jumping and wall running since many players didn’t like the implementation in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops III. And with a new year, it’s no surprise that another Call of Duty game will be coming out, and it’s bringing back Modern Warfare with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Activision has released a new trailer and announced that the game is coming out on October 25, 2019.

The game is developed by Infinity Ward and is a reimagined experience inspired by the first-person shooter that was released back in 2007. With a new game engine, players will get to check out a new narrative experience and progression in the single-player campaign along with multiplayer and new cooperative gameplay. Fans should be happy to know that there won’t be the traditional season pass, allowing players to get free maps and content so that everyone can play together.

“This is an all-new Modern Warfare reimagined in every way,” said Dave Stohl, co-Studio Head, Infinity Ward. “We are creating an emotionally charged experience that’s inspired by the headlines in the world today, where the rules are grey and battle lines are blurred. Players will join a varied cast of international special forces and freedom fighters in gripping and heart-pounding missions through iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East. It’s intense, it’s exciting, and we can’t wait for our fans to play this October.”

“Every design decision has been made with our players in mind,” said Patrick Kelly, Creative Director and co-Studio Head, Infinity Ward. “With the launch of Modern Warfare, we’re taking steps to unite the community. First, we plan for Modern Warfare to be played together across PC and console through cross-play support. Second, we’re eliminating the traditional season pass, so that we can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players. This is just the beginning – there’s much more to come.”

With a new engine for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, new visual features include art photogrammetry, new hybrid tile-based streaming system, new PBR decal rendering system, world volumetric lighting, 4K HDR, DirectX Raytracing (PC), new GPU geometry pipeline and more. Dolby Atmos will also be available supported platforms. (Sorry, PlayStation users.)

Fans can now pre-order the digital version of the upcoming game and get a prestige token that can be used in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be available on October 25, 2019, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
