Infinity Ward, developers of a number of Call of Duty titles, have announced that they will be revealing the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer Universe on August 1, 2019. The announcement was made via the official Call of Duty Twitter account.
The reveal will take place on Twitch, and feature a full explanation of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer universe, and how it differs from other Call of Duty multiplayer worlds. Infinity Ward intends to show players how their experience with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will continue or start online, and where they can take it.
When Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was announced it was confirmed that players would be able to take part in multiplayer or the offline campaign, and earn rewards and progression for their overall profile through both. This is different to most other Call of Duty titles, which have each required players to level up their profile through multiplayer only.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will support cross-play, allowing Call of Duty fans to play with friends regardless of what console they’re playing on. Another big change with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is that there will be no Season Pass, meaning all future maps, community events, weapon updates, and more will come to players at no additional cost.
Yesterday Infinity Ward revealed a new game mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s multiplayer, Gunfight. This mode pits two teams of two players against one another in small, intense matches that are reminiscent of the incredible Trials of Osiris game mode of Destiny 1.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is, in a sense, a remake of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. However, the game’s story has been completely reworked and redesigned for the new release, bringing back familiar faces and settings but adding a new twist on them for the wider Call of Duty audience.
While the last game in the franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 from Treyarch, Beenox, and Raven Software, priorities multiplayer and completely removed the campaign from their release, Infinity Ward seem to be putting both the single player story and the multiplayer experience at the forefront of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. In many ways the original Modern Warfare redefined the modern first person shooter game, and now it seems as though the remake will redefine what a Call of Duty title is once again.
