Modern Warfare 

Scheduled for global release on PlayStation® 4, Xbox One, and PC (Blizzard Battle.net) on Friday, October 25, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a powerful reimagined experience in an all-new title, built from the ground up.

Developed by Infinity Ward, in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare you’ll take on the role of highly-skilled Tier One operators in an incredibly raw and gritty narrative affecting the global balance of power.

 Reveal Trailer 

 Campaign 

The new Modern Warfare delivers an emotionally charged and intense campaign that shines a light on the changing nature of modern war. Expect a single-player experience that is edgy, culturally relevant, and thought-provoking.

Players will fight alongside a diverse cast of international special forces and freedom fighters working within the grey area of their rules of engagement, in a number of heart-pounding covert operations set throughout iconic European cities and into the volatile expanses of the Middle East.

Missions include close-quarter, stealth operations and long-range combat that puts tactical decision-making to the ultimate test.

 Online 

Beyond the gripping single-player campaign, expect a unified narrative experience and progression across the entire game, including single-player campaign, online multiplayer, and co-op experiences.

 Impressions

To be honest, I was a little confused when I saw the title “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Official Reveal Trailer” considering the fact we already have one.  However, it seems that this is not a remaster (which was released a bit ago), rather it is a reimagining of Modern Warfare.  This means that some things may be familiar, but there will be entirely new things and surprises.

For me, I feel like Call of Duty got its biggest boost with the Modern Warfare series as it revolutionized shooters and gained the popularity that Halo once enjoyed.  I believe that they are now rebooting the entire franchise from the very beginning and reclaiming their roots since the series has gotten away from itself and fans are tired of make believe guns and super advanced technological warfare.

I think that they are going within the right direction and the trailer itself is certainly enough to spark interest.  I am going to have to see what they do with the multiplayer and if the game looks good from a player-vs-player perspective as I am already sold on the single-player.  

I have not bought a Call of Duty game since Call of Duty: Black Ops, and I only played a more previous title because it came with my Playstation 4 and trading it in to gamestop would yield me no money.  However, if things keep going from their impressive reveal trailer they have just earned back a customer.
