Activision has officially revealed the next game in its long-running series of first-person shooters will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – a gritty reboot of the popular and critically acclaimed title released over a decade ago. The first trailer for Modern Warfare confirms the return of the cigar-toting Captain Price along with a release date of October 25, 2019.
In Modern Warfare, players will take on the role of multiple highly-skilled Tier One operators in an emotionally-charged narrative that affects the global balance of power and changing nature of war. Missions include a combination of close-quarter, stealth operations and long-range combat with tactical decisions.
The narrative includes a diverse cast of international Special Forces and freedom fighters working within a ‘grey area’ of rules of engagement set throughout iconic European locations and into the volatile expanses of the Middle East.
Beyond the single-player campaign, players can expect unified progression across online multiplayer and co-op experiences.
Modern Warfare features a new engine that’s said to deliver a photo-realistic experience. The game will also support 4K HDR, DirectX Raytracing for PC and full Dolby ATMOS, on supported platforms.
Pre-orders are already open. Anyone who orders a digital version of Modern Warfare receives a prestige token to be used immediately in-game in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Activision has detailed five different editions for Modern Warfare: Three digital editions include access to a series of character and weapon skins while the physical Precision Edition includes a pair of KontrolFreek Call of Duty: Modern Warfare thumbsticks and a controller skin, along with select content from the digital editions.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will launch October 25, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
