What awaits us in Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s multiplayer mode? This week during E3, Activision gave us the first hints via screenshots. What do they suggest?
Not much that we didn’t already know, but at least the graphics are nice. Activision and developer Infinity Ward boast that Call of Duty Modern Warfare has under its hood “a physically-based material system allowing for state of the art photogrammetry, a new hybrid tile based streaming system, new PBR decal rendering system, world volumetric lighting, 4K HDR, DirectX Raytracing (PC) and more as well as a new GPU geometry pipeline.” Got all that?
Other than these screenshots, details on the modern Modern Warfare’s warfare are scant, but we do know a lot about the single-player:
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare pushes boundaries and breaks rules the way only Modern Warfare can with an edgy, culturally relevant and thought-provoking single-player campaign.
- Players will engage in breathtaking covert operations alongside a diverse cast of international special forces and freedom fighters throughout iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East.
- Fans will experience personalities from the Modern Warfare series, including the iconic Captain Price, while experiencing visceral frontline encounters with lethal tier one operators who work within the gray area of their rules of engagement.
- Single player gameplay is reflexive and strategic, supporting the narrative through a variety of different playstyles including close quarter, stealth missions and long-range combat that puts tactical decision making to the ultimate test.
Infinity Ward reboots a classic this fall when Call of Duty Modern Warfare releases for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC.
