Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot gets first trailer and cross-play

Activision and Infinity Ward have finally unveiled 2019’s Call Of Duty and while it’s got Captain Price it’s ditched season passes.

This year’s Call Of Duty has finally been announced and as rumoured it’s a reboot, that’s due out on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 25.

Or at least it seems to be a reboot, neither the trailer nor the official blurb uses the word but instead describes it merely as an ‘all-new title’, with unofficial sources claiming it takes place in a brand-new story universe.

What we do know for sure is that the game has an ‘epic single-player story, an action-packed multiplayer playground, and new cooperative gameplay’ – with no mention of battle royale or last year’s Blackout mode.

That may come later but what definitely isn’t in the game is a traditional season pass, which is a big change for Call Of Duty.

‘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’, says creative director Patrick Kelly.

‘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 game is also promising a raft of graphical advancements, including ‘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.’

Developer Infinity Ward seems especially proud of it’s new, more realistic, thermal and night vision views, as well a new animation system and new audio tools supporting full Dolby ATMOS.

‘This is an all-new Modern Warfare reimagined in every way,’ says Infinity Ward co-studio head Dave Stohl. ‘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.’
