Infinity Ward and Activision have revealed that the next instalment in the Call of Duty franchise, titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, will release in October.
As you can probably guess its name, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a soft reboot of sorts. What sets this new entry apart from recent entries in the series is that the game will indeed have a single player campaign, which will be split in half. One part will see players taking on the role of a Tier 1 operator, with the second part putting players in the shoes of a rebel fighter in the Middle East.
The game’s dual-perspective storyline will allow players to view the war from different sides, proving that one man’s freedom fighter could be another man’s terrorist. It’s an interesting angle and one that if handled correctly could make for a gripping single-player campaign.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare also uses a brand new engine which will deliver immersive and photo-realistic visuals with insane attention to detail. The engine makes use of photogrammetry, which allows the game’s artists to scan real-world objects in order to recreate them virtually.
Of course, the first-person shooter will still feature an action-packed multiplayer and a new co-operative mode, which has us really excited. Having said this, it’s great to see Infinity Ward and Activision once again placing a lot of focus on making the game’s single-player campaign engrossing.
