Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is an upcoming first-person shooter from Activision's Infinity Ward studio. The team developed the original Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, so it has the necessary experience to shine a modern light on the series. Unlike 2018's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare features a single-player campaign as well as traditional multiplayer modes.
Today, Activision revealed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's multiplayer gameplay would be revealed on August 1. The company said the following.
As a teaser, the publisher allowed a few popular streamers to play the game's new two-on-two mode "Gunfight" mode. Gunfight delivers a new level of quick-action, close-quarters duo-based combat that is a blast to play.
It'll be interesting to see how multiplayer changes in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. From what we saw on Twitch, the combat is a lot like Battlefield V and Rainbow Six Siege. However, only time will tell how it stacks up to the competition. August 1 is definitely going to be a defining moment for the Call of Duty franchise, that's for sure!
