Call of Duty is back, and it has even more to offer especially to its most ardent fans.
Activision announced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is now available worldwide. Published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward, Modern Warfare drops players into an epic reimagining of one of the most iconic series in gaming history. Activision's new title unites the Call of Duty community to play together through crossplay and cross progression support, and to enjoy a load of new post-release content coming free for all players on all platforms.
On Wednesday, it was reported that the title has grossed $600 million in sell-through globally in the first three days of its release.
"The energy across the community has been incredible and we can't wait for all of our fans to play together," said Patrick Kelly, co-studio head and creative director at Infinity Ward. "Modern Warfare is packed with campaign, multiplayer and co-op content; with something for everyone no matter what playstyle. And launch is just the beginning for us."
Modern Warfare features unified progression across the entire game, as players enlist in an epic story campaign, engage in the ultimate online multiplayer playground and play cooperatively with friends in an all-new collection of Special Ops experiences.
"There's nothing quite like Modern Warfare - this is one of the most celebrated series in gaming - and in reimaging this great title, Infinity Ward has delivered an incredible, new experience that raises the bar for this franchise," said Byron Beede, executive vice-president and general manager for Call of Duty at Activision. "The momentum behind this release has been extraordinary, and today is only the start. There's so much more to come. This is a great day for Call of Duty fans everywhere."
Coming off the largest beta in Call of Duty history and awarded "Best Online Multiplayer" by Game Critics Best of E3 2019, Modern Warfare's multiplayer delivers a experience with best-in-class down-the-barrel gameplay.
With unprecedented variety, players can choose from an array of new play spaces that refine Call of Duty multiplayer. Players will be able to customise the way they play based on their preference and playstyles through a selection of multiplayer Operators and unparalleled modifiability in the new Gunsmith system.
In the single-player story, players will immerse themselves in a visceral narrative that shines a light on the changing nature of modern war. Additionally, picking up where the Campaign ends is the cooperative Special Ops mode where players can team up in strike-teams of four. Special Ops advances the overarching Modern Warfare lore with multiple ways to play co-op, including Operations, the largest and most involved experience with multi-phased objectives, and the more curated Classic Special Ops, to test your performance with weapons, munitions and other tools.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare features a new engine delivering an immersive and photo-realistic experience across the entire game. 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 and other innovations.
