After all of the hype and anticipation, the long awaited trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been released. We knew that it would take place in the same Modern Warfare universe, but the biggest surprise is the return of huge fan favorite Captain Price, one of the protagonists of the Modern Warfare Trilogy. We will be able to activate our night vision goggles this year when it releases later this year in October.
The trailer itself showcases the game engine with beautiful 60 fps with 4k resolution, as Price narrates with while his unit stealthily makes their way through the jungle. The visuals are absolutely stunning and if the team at Infinity Ward hold true to this style then we’re in for a wonderful presentation on the final product. Seeing Price again after so many years was a breath of fresh air, however the one caveat is that the voice actor is different this time around.
New Engine, and No Season Pass.
Against all odds, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not feature a season pass like previous entries. This is quite a change for Activision studies to make, as a huge amount of the profit comes from that extra form of monetization. According to the developer in a press release, this will allow them to update the game with free maps and post-launch content. In addition, the game will feature a brand new game engine that delivers an “immersive and photo-realistic experience.” Judging from the trailer, this engine looks like its going to be the new go to for game licensing, as it easily stands out among its peers. Also, this game will feature cross-play between PC and console players for the first time in the series.
When does it launch?
Fans can look forward to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare when it officially launches for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 25 worldwide. After the insane Black Ops 4 that infamously had no single player campaign, we’re really looking forward to playing through some emotionally charged missions with Captain Price and the Task Force 141 again. As we stated earlier, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches on October 25.
