The next instalment in the Call of Duty franchise will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare coming on 25th October 2019.
The reused title of Modern Warfare correctly suggests a reimagining of the original game on Xbox 360, which will be built from the ground up with a new full campaign around Captain Price judging by the trailer, utilising a new game engine.
Yes that’s right, a new engine at long last! The new engine delivers 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 (personal highlight) and 4K HDR.
Spectral rendering delivers thermal heat radiation and infrared identification for both thermal and night-vision in-game imaging. The technical investment provides a cutting edge animation and blend shape system, while the audio supports full Dolby ATMOS.
The game will feature a Campaign mode, Co-op and Multiplayer. Interestingly co-op is not a Zombies experience but more like Spec Ops operations. All three modes will also be unified, meaning weapon unlocks are kept throughout each mode available.
Cross play is also confirmed between PC, Xbox One and PS4, so get teaming up with friends no matter what console they game on. One could get used to this cross play thing now, it’s awesome.
Even better there’s no Season Pass! So all post maps will be free. It seems like they’re actually listening to player feedback and what the market wants.
Are you looking forward to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (the second one)?
