We knew it was coming. But now, it’s confirmed. This year’s Call of Duty is called Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare.
- Return of modern setting.
- Return of Single Player Campaign.
- Return of a younger, Captain Price (different voice actor, it seems).
Is this the return to form for the Call of Duty series that we have been hoping for?
The stakes have never been higher as players take on the role of lethal Tier One operators in a heart-racing saga that will affect the global balance of power. Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® engulfs fans in an incredibly raw, gritty, provocative narrative that brings unrivalled intensity and shines a light on the changing nature of modern war. Developed by the studio that started it all, Infinity Ward delivers an epic re-imagining of the iconic Modern Warfare series from the ground up.
Prepare to go dark, Modern Warfare® is back!
In the visceral and dramatic single-player story campaign, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare pushes boundaries and breaks rules the way only Modern Warfare can. Players will engage in breathtaking covert operations alongside a diverse cast of international special forces throughout iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East.
And the story doesn’t end there. In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, players will be thrust into an immersive narrative spanning the entire game. Players can experience the ultimate online playground with classic multiplayer or squad-up and play cooperatively in a collection of elite operations, accessible to all skill levels.
According to Activision, the new Modern Warfare game “delivers an emotionally charged and intense campaign that shines a light on the changing nature of modern war. Expect a single-player experience that is edgy, culturally relevant, and thought-provoking.”
Make of that what you will. In terms of campaign locations, “players will fight alongside a diverse cast of international special forces and freedom fighters working within the grey area of their rules of engagement, in a number of heart-pounding covert operations set throughout iconic European cities and into the volatile expanses of the Middle East.”
Missions will include close-quarter, stealth operations and long-range combat that puts tactical decision-making to the ultimate test. Here’s hoping for a stealth mission that reaches the standards of ‘All Ghillied Up’ from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. I haven’t enjoyed to many levels of a campaign in any game quite like that one in Chernobyl.
These are the very first details of Call of Duty Modern Warfare, more will be revealed in a timely manner, starting with E3 in June next month. With less than 5 months until release, rKade will be with you all the way – so do stick around!
