Call of Duty Modern Warfare will reboot this October
Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will arrive on October 25. No, unfortunately you haven’t woken up in 2007 wondering if Apple can ever make a successful phone. This is a reimagining of the original title – somewhere between a remake and a reboot.
That means that you still see Captain Price and a few environments from the original game popping up in the trailer, which also debuts a pretty nifty-looking new engine.
“Players will engage in breathtaking covert operations alongside a diverse cast of international special forces throughout iconic European cities,” Activision says. We’re also told it’ll be “morally grey”. So, expect those Full Metal Jacket vibes.
We don’t have that much more to go on just yet, but we do know that there will be single-player, co-op and competitive multiplayer. And, this time there won’t be a Zombies game mode.
For the first time, these will be playable cross-platform, with PS4 and Xbox One players living in perfect harmony. Well, if you discount the grenades, bullets and trash talking anyway.
Activision also says it is “eliminating the traditional season pass,” which is a positive, even if we weren’t aware that gouging players for extra content not included on the disk was considered a tradition now. Instead, the company plans on supplying a stream of new free maps and content to all players. There may be other forms of paid DLC, of course, we just don’t know yet.
You’ve still got over quite a few days until it’s released. Maybe work your way through the best Nintendo Switch games until then?
