Activision and Infinity Ward are taking the Call of Duty back to its most popular incarnation with the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
The original Modern Warfare, named Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, was the fourth entry in the series. It was also the first to drop the World War II themes that the previous CoD games were based. Its sequels—Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3— contined the success and made CoD one of the biggest franchises in gaming history.
COD also later saw success with a second series, Black Ops.
The new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title has been built from the ground up and is set for global release on Xbox One Friday, October 25.
The new Modern Warfare campaign mode hits hard, with a thought-provoking, intense, and emotionally charged single-player experience for players on Xbox One. Players are set to fight alongside a diverse cast of characters, from international special forces to freedom fighters.
This is culturally-relevant, and sometimes shocking gameplay is taking place across Europe and into the expanses of the Middle East. There’s several operations to undertake, including stealth infiltrations, close-quarter missions, and long-range combat where you must rely on tactical decision-making.
Beyond the gripping single-player campaign, expect a unified narrative experience and progression across the entire game, including single-player story campaign, online multiplayer, and co-op experiences.
