Activision has officially announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. In a trailer that was released Thursday, fans finally get a good look at the rebooted Modern Warfare franchise.The game is scheduled to release on October 25, 2019, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Fans have waited a long time for this game, but many things are still unknown

A new game in the series comes with some significant changes to the Call of Duty formula. Modern Warfare is abandoning the annual pass model and instead is promising free maps, content, and post-launch events to all players. The old model offered an average of four paid maps in each game. There might still be other forms of paid content in the game. But that is all speculation at this point.

The game is also featuring cross-play support between PC and consoles although currently, it is unknown whether this means Xbox and PS4 will be able to play together. The PC version of this game will be exclusive to so look there if you are planning your purchase to play with your console friends.

Most surprisingly, Modern Warfare is featuring a completely new engine that looks extraordinarily detailed and realistic. The single-player campaign is planned to take players in breathtaking covert operations across the iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East. Activision is also planning an “immersive narrative experience” to span all three game modes, but details to what that means are currently unknown.

It is evident that Activision is trying to re-imagine how Call of Duty works but more importantly, they are hoping to give more than a simple remastering to the entire Modern Warfare franchise.  The game reportedly has the presence of Captain Price along with a few shots that seem like a nod towards Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

The previews for the game show multiple perspectives, and it is reported that half of the campaign will unfold from the perspective of an Arab soldier named Farah from an unnamed country.

Although the game is being reworked a lot of the original feel of the series will still be included. Where Modern Warfare 2 notoriously had “No Russian” it seems that the modern reboot of the game is still out for a similar shock factor.

Some smaller changes are being made to the Call of Duty formula as well with this release. Guns are planned to feel the same in all modes, and character progression is going to carry over into multiplayer.

Activision is sure to have even more changes hidden about the new game. More information is planned to be available at the E3 2019.
