Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Release Date, Trailer and PS4, Xbox Crossplay announced
The new Call of Duty has been announced!
It must have been one of the leakiest ships in gaming history, but now we’re finally here – we have the information we need about this year’s Call of Duty game.
And it looks very different to what we’ve seen in the past.
The first few bits of information are starting to circulate about the game, and it looks like we’re going to see a very different title to what we’ve seen in previous years.
There is more of a focus on the ‘realistic’ side of what you can expect from the series here, and doing away with the ‘Modern Warfare 4’ title and going back to just ‘Modern Warfare’ seems like a statement – this will be unlike any CoD before it.
Infinity Ward and Activision are dialing down on the elite soldiers vs terrorist aspect, and the game will take a more grounded route than what we’ve seen in the past few years.
The title will support crossplay between Xbox One, PS4 and PC and will launch on October 25, 2019.
Everything else you need to know can be found below.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare features a new engine delivering an immersive and photo-realistic experience.
The new technology utilizes the latest advancements in visual engineering, including a physically-based material system allowing for state of the art photogrammetry, a new hybrid tile-based streaming system, new PBR decal rendering system, world volumetric lighting, 4K HDR, DirectX Raytracing (PC) and more as well as a new GPU geometry pipeline.
Spectral rendering delivers thermal heat radiation and infrared identification for both thermal and night-vision in-game imaging.
The technical investment provides a cutting edge animation and blend shape system, while the new suite of audio tools supports full Dolby ATMOS, on supported platforms, along with the latest in audio simulation effects.
“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.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is scheduled for release globally October 25th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
