In a press release from Activision today, the company announced that a new generation of Call of Duty multiplayer is coming, Thursday, August 1. At that time Activision and Infinity Ward will reveal the multiplayer universe of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which was named “Best Online Multiplayer” by Game Critics Awards Best of E3 2019.
As players enlist in the heart-racing Modern Warfare story, multiplayer continues the experience as players head online into the ultimate playground for the global balance of power. Featuring unified progression across modes, Modern Warfare seeks to unite the community with plans to support cross-play across platforms and the removal of the traditional season pass in order to deliver a greater mix of more free maps, content and community events post-launch.
Moments ago, fans got the first glimpse of the game’s new 2 vs. 2 Gunfight mode, which is only a fraction of the full, online multiplayer experience in Modern Warfare. Shown live on Twitch, Gunfight delivers a new level of quick-action, close-quarters duo-based combat that is a blast to play and to watch.
