Activision announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the latest installment in Call of Duty series. The official Call of Duty: Modern Warfare trailer is here with fan favorite Captain Price.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is scheduled for global release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Blizzard Battle.net) on Friday, October 25, complete with cross-play capabilities. It won’t have the series’ traditional, paid Season Pass for post-launch maps, gear, and events. Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will support cross play as well between PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Here’s the statement from Infinity Ward on this:
“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.”
The new Modern Warfare features a unified narrative experience and progression across a heart racing, epic single-player story, an action-packed multiplayer playground, and new cooperative gameplay.
“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.”
The trailer showcases the return of Captain Price, alongside some new characters. This is not a sequel or a prequel. It’s a reboot and a brand new story.
