We finally saw something of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare & # 39; s multiplayer. Infinity Ward presented the first look at Modern Warfare's competitive offerings with a livestream revealing the new 2-on-2 Gunfight mode. Most of the details are still in the dark, but at least we now know when we can expect them.
A multiplayer revelation of Modern Warfare will be released on Aug. 1 at 10:00 am (PT) / 1:00 pm (ET) / 6:00 pm (BST) (3:00 am Central European Time on 2 August). Infinity Ward will present the game via livestream on its twitch channel twitch.tv/callofduty. There you can expect to see more of Gunfight and learn about all the other modes that Modern Warfare adds to the usual Call of Duty multiplayer suite. We also expect to hear more about one of the game's biggest new features: cross-play.
Infinity Ward first announced that Cross-Play will come to Call of Duty when it was announced that the game will be restarted in 2007, Modern Warfare, but with a whole new story. It allows players on all Call of Duty platforms to play together and against each other in multiplayer matches. Regardless of whether you buy the game on PC, Xbox One or PS4, the entire CoD community is at your disposal for multiplayer matches. Infinity Ward also announced the removal of the season ticket structure for downloadable content with Modern Warfare, so all multiplayer maps will be free for all players after release.
Another aspect we want to learn more about in August is Modern The Progressive System of War. Infinity Ward has announced that progress includes all modes in the game. This means that you will be able to upgrade your weapons, unlock new Killstreaks and work towards prestige while playing in both single player and multiplayer modes. We do not have much details yet on how it all works or how the modes are otherwise linked, but Infinity Ward wants Modern Warfare to feel more like a complete experience rather than several different games packed together] Gunfight is the first new multiplayer mode we've heard of in Modern Warfare. On small cards, two teams of two players compete against each other, where they face each other in super fast laps. The first team to win six rounds wins the game, but you do not have the advantage of choosing your equipment. In each round everyone is assigned the same weapon group. This means that everyone is equal, which leads to intense, fast battles. You can find more information in our practical impressions.
