Multiplayer has long been the main attraction for Call of Duty fans, to the point where the last major release, Black Ops 4, omitted the single-player mode entirely. This go-round, however, the Modern Warfare remake will have a renewed focus on single-player…but that doesn’t mean multiplayer will be neglected.
We don’t know much about Modern Warfare’s multiplayer mode yet because Activision and Infinity Ward haven’t said much yet. That will change on August 1, when we get a massive expose of the whole shebang.
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.
So what can we watch right now? Yesterday Activision held a Twitch livestream for Modern Warfare’s new 2 vs. 2 Gunfight mode. You’re paired with a partner and placed in close quarters against two other opponents, and must make quick strategic decisions to win the fight. This mode can be seen in the archive at Twitch.tv/CallofDuty.
After August 1, what remains is the game itself — coming to Playstation 4, XBox One and PC October 25.
