Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 Reveal Details
The latest Activision announcement brings tidings of a refreshed take on an iconic part of the overall franchise. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be the 2019 release and it will act as a sort of soft reboot, or refresh of that series. This game is set to feature full cross-play between Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC for the first time in franchise history.
There will also be no season pass to purchase and all post-launch content will be free. When it comes to progression it is noted as being unified across campaign, multiplayer and the new coop mode. This title will be the first in a very long time to run on a brand new Infinity Ward created engine that’s been in production over the last five years. Future Call of Duty titles will also run off of this chosen engine.
When it comes to the general trailer tease, Price returns and there’s a tease of other fan favorites potentially being brought in. The teaser essentially showcases a squad in a dark forest and then presents a series of action scenes. The release date is set for October 25, 2019 on the previously noted platforms. There are currently three noted digital tiers available for pre-oder. For the Microsoft console, it is noted as being Xbox One X enhanced with support for HDR.
It also notes that online multiplayer will be from 2-20 players. There will also be online coop. This is part of the description ”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.” For more details, check out our CoD hub or our review of last year’s release.
