It’s almost Call of Duty time!
The fall is coming soon with the summer winding down and Activision has launched their promotional leg for the multiplayer mode of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare starting with a reveal trailer they posted online.
Witness Call of Duty’s most immersive Multiplayer to date. In the ultimate online playground, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare delivers the most revolutionary Multiplayer of the series yet. With best-in-class down-the-barrel gameplay, and the most weapon choices in Call of Duty history, Modern Warfare brings unmatched intensity and authenticity to its familiar but fresh experience. Call of Duty:® Modern Warfare is available October 25, 2019.
We also have a couple of details to share as well.
Developers also revealed during the live-stream presentation/reveal that there won’t be a Season Pass with Modern Warfare 4 and that content is expected to be free. We’ll see if they’ll simply have cosmetic options for sale instead of holding back maps and guns.
Polygon was able to get some quotes which includes confirmation of crossplay between PC/Consoles being added as well.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward’s re-imagining of its modern military shooter franchise, will have two very big changes: This year’s game will feature cross-play support for multiplayer on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One, and won’t have a “traditional season pass.”
“With the launch of Modern Warfare, the team is taking steps to unite the community,” Infinity Ward said in a statement. “First, the team plans for Modern Warfare to be played together across PC and console through cross-play support.
“Also, the team is eliminating the traditional season pass, so that they can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players.”
PlayStationBlog also added these following details as well.
- 2v2 Gunfight: One of Modern Warfare’s newest and most addictive modes is also the simplest concept revealed for Multiplayer so far. In Gunfight, teams of two face off in short, intense rounds with cycling weapon loadouts on condensed maps. Wasn’t expecting to battle with just a scoped .50 pistol and a flashbang? Surprise! The result is an exciting, unpredictable, and intimate competitive mode.
- 6v6 Cyber Attack: A round-based mode where each player has one spawn. Win by planting an EMP device near the enemy’s data center to win the match. The high-stakes objective and emphasis on teamwork makes each exhilarating round pass by lightning fast.
- 10v10 Headquarters: A king of the hill-style mode where opposing teams track down HQs that populate the map, holding them down to earn points for victory. The constant journey across the map provides an intoxicating mix of wide-open firefights and close-quarter HQ defense brawls. Respawns are disabled for the team defending captured HQs, which makes for intense action when combined with the freshly removed minimap.
- 20v20 Domination: The biggest match size for Modern Warfare revealed so far features 40 total players. The team confirmed that they are aiming to support over 100 players in this large-scale mode. We played on the sprawling Aniyah Palace – a ruined historical building surrounded by maze-like walls and wide-open spaces. Juggling five control points with teammates makes for a frantic scramble toward victory. Modern Warfare’s Tactical Sprint option – which grants an extra burst of speed while making you especially vulnerable – comes in handy here.
The newest incarnation will be released on October 25th.
