Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is an upcoming first-person shooter from Activision. The game is a spiritual reboot of the acclaimed Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but presents the same characters in a new setting. According to everyone who previewed the campaign, it's a dark, uncomfortable, and realistic story.

Today, Activision released the gameplay launch trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The video highlights the campaign, and seems to focus on tactics. However, just like every Call of Duty game, there are plenty of explosions and set pieces.

In a recent interview, Activision said that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare focuses on the bonds between people. It seems like the camaraderie between soldiers is what the focus of the story is. You can read an excerpt from The Escapist article below.

The story of Modern Warfare is not depressing; it's about the bonds between people, who share a common goal and set out to achieve it. There are moments of loss, moments of humor, and moments of celebration. It's cathartic, and as strange as it sounds to say this, catharsis is fun.
