Activision and Infinity Ward today announced their latest entry in to the Call of Duty series, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Wait you say! That game came out in 2007! Don't be confused, this is a brand new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reimagined from the ground up - and a return to having a full fledged story based campaign for Call of Duty after skipping it last year.
“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.”
So while the trailer teases returns of fan favorite characters, it appears the storyline will be modernized and likely contain new missions. Along with the campaign players will get PvP multiplayer and "co-op experiences." Could we see the return of the Spec-Ops mode from Modern Warfare 3?
Perhaps most exciting about this announcement is all the technology blurbs buried in the press release. Here's the highlights:
- Cross Platform play between console and PC
- Fully optimized PC version with 4K HDR and Raytracing Support
- A brand new graphics engine claiming "photorealism"
- A brand new physics engine
- Dolby Atmos support
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be out on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 25th.
