The newest part of the Call of Duty shooting series is called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The game is not a sequel to, but a reboot of the old Modern Warfare trilogy.
The American game developer Infinity Ward presented the game to a small group of journalists yesterday.
According to Infinity Ward, Modern Warfare will be the most realistic Call of Duty game to date.
The game emphasizes authentic military action and weapons.
The narrative main mode takes place in the present and is based on fictional, but current, war situations.
The game wants to “show war as it is”.
Excessive violence and the perspective of a terrorist are not shunned.
Both sides of warfare
The player experiences one half of the story as a member of a military elite unit and the other half as a rebel.
“We wanted to tell true stories about modern warfare,” said Jacob Minkoff, the director of story mode.
“It would not be respectful, for example, to avoid civilians in war zones and only show the perspective of jumping elite soldiers”.
The final and third installments in the Modern Warfare series appeared in 2011.
Minkoff can explain the choice for a reboot: “We love the characters and DNA of this franchise. The Modern Warfare series is also provocative and cross-border. With Modern Warfare in the title of the game we create the right expectation and players know what they get.”
Compared to the previous part, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Modern Warfare has made significant visual progress.
According to the studio, the game is based on a new technical infrastructure (a so-called engine).
The game appears on October 25 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
