You can play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s campaign from an Arab soldier’s perspective

One of the big things Infinity Ward highlighted during our studio event was the fact that you get to play the campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from many different perspectives beyond just Tier 1 Operators.

You get to play as Tier 1 Operators for many missions, but also get a chance to play a rebel soldiers, and Arab soldiers. The two missions we saw, detailed here, were already in two different perspectives. The first was from the Tier 1 perspective; the second from rebel fighter’s perspective.

ArtsTechnica is reporting that the half of the game is played from an Arab soldier’s perspective.

The development team is doing this in part to usher in a first for the series: an entire half of the campaign played from the perspective of an Arab soldier.

The campaign is bringing a new definition of reality to life with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, in ways we’ve never seen before. The game pushes the boundaries and is trying hard to be as real and accurate as possible in the modern era of gaming.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare focuses on continuity features throughout all modes, making it one game versus three separate

During out studio visit at Infinity Ward, one of the things that the developers made clear in this game is a big focus on continuity and consistency across the entire game. 

With previous Call of Duty titles over the years, many of the games feel like they are three separate modes versus one whole game. For example, in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, there’s Blackout which has no relation to Multiplayer in many ways, and Zombies which is completely separate for the other two. It’s not one connected game. 

With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward says they focused on ensuring that the entire game feels like one game versus three separate experiences. 

Activision confirmed in their blog post too:

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.

An example of that the studio gave us was with weapon progression. If you’re someone who is not the best at multiplayer, but loves to play campaign, you can progress all the weapons in the campaign story and it will be available in multiplayer. If you progress through all the weapons in MP, it will be at the same level in campaign or the co-op mode. 

This allows the entire game to feel consistent and continuous across modes of play and lets players rank their items up without being forced to play a singular mode the entire time. And this may even promote some players to check out the campaign mode too, for those who only get on to play MP.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare uses a new engine

Yes, it’s finally a thing!

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare uses a brand new engine, the first time for Call of Duty in a long time.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare features a new engine delivering an immersive and photo-realistic experience. The new technology utilizes the latest advancements in visual engineering, including a physically-based material system allowing for state of the art photogrammetry, a new hybrid tile based streaming system, new PBR decal rendering system, world volumetric lighting, 4K HDR, DirectX Raytracing (PC) and more as well as a new GPU geometry pipeline. Spectral rendering delivers thermal heat radiation and infrared identification for both thermal and night-vision in-game imaging. The technical investment provides a cutting edge animation and blend shape system, while the new suite of audio tools supports full Dolby ATMOS, on supported platforms, along with the latest in audio simulation effects.

We had a chance to see the new engine in action at Infinity Ward and it was incredible. Lots of details, new level of realism, and so much more.

Beyond this, Eurogamer is reporting that Infinity Ward will be sharing the new engine across the teams, including Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software. We were not told this during our visit, but we wanted to pass this along as it’s big news that the new engine will be used going forward:

One of the key objectives with the latest engine is to help lay the foundation for the future of the Call of Duty series, with initial work starting on the revamp as long as five years ago. Going forward, Infinity Ward’s work will be shared across studios such as Sledgehammer and Raven Games, where there has already been a healthy collaborative history.

Both PlayStation and Xbox promote new Call of Duty 2019 teaser

Both PlayStation and Xbox have promoted the 2019 Call of Duty teaser images that were shared earlier this year bringing into question which first party platform will have the deal with Call of Duty this year or if anyone will have a deal.

PlayStation updated the PlayStation Store today with a new tab under their featured section with just ‘Call of Duty’ and full blown image of the May 30th | 10AM PT reveal time.

Alongside this, both Xbox and MajorNelson Twitter accounts have retweeted the Call of Duty “Going Dark” teaser earlier today, which is not something that usually happens when one first party has the marketing deal.

But it is possible Xbox is just retweeting to get the news out on the new Call of Duty game, as Call of Duty is one of the biggest yearly releases for all platforms.

PlayStation has had the Call of Duty marketing deal, alongside with DLC first and esports partnership, since 2015 with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Since then, all Call of Duty DLC content has been first on PlayStation, the CWL has been presented by PlayStation 4, and Call of Duty betas have been available first on the PS platform.

Prior to 2015, from 2010 through 2014, Xbox had the marketing and esports deal with Call of Duty. Xbox presented the Call of Duty Championship yearly for several years, alongside getting all Call of Duty add-on content first on the platform up until Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

There’s no confirmed information that states PlayStation is no longer the marketing partner, but it does bring up questions as to what’s happening with the deal and if its continuing for this year.

Maybe we will find out more May 30.

Here’s the video from Call of Duty announcing the reveal date: 

Activision thus far has not revealed many specific details on what the 2019 game is. This year is one of the latest reveal times Call of Duty has ever had with an end May first trailer drop, with reveals and teasers usually dropping in late April too early May in previous years.

In investor calls, Activision’s executive team has been teasing that the 2019 game has an entirely ‘new campaign, huge and expansive multiplayer world, and some fun co-op experiences.’ The company also stated that the game would bring ‘game changing experiences’ to fans when it launches this year. 

Leaks late last week from Kotaku and Eurogamer have reportedly stated that the game is called “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” (not the expected ‘Modern Warfare 4’) and set to be a “soft reboot” of the Modern Warfare series. 

Earlier this week, Activision updated the Call of Duty social profiles to feature a black out of headers with captions “Going Dark.”
