Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Special Ops Trailer

In a new trailer, Activision offers a close look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Special Ops co-op mode.

Serving as a soft reboot of Modern Warfare sub-series, first-person shooter title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision is all set to arrive on October 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Less than away from launch, MW is revealing new details every now and then to keep up the hype. In a recently released trailer, fan-favorite game mode Special Ops marks its anticipated return and re-imagined for a new generation.

Latest Modern Warfare official trailer showcases high-octane gameplay aspects of Spec Ops multiplayer mode.

CoD: MW multiplayer mode Special Ops is comprised of a couple of interconnected Operations where you will form four-player strike teams to take down a threat from Eastern Hemisphere and complete multiple objectives as well.

In order to complete these team-based missions, players can either take a stealthy approach or go all guns blazing if they want. Throughout a wide variety of maps, Operations would offer the most involved activities and experiences.

You and your team would engage Al-Qatala army in the city of Verdansk and destroy their detailed coordinates. Primarily, four multi-stage Operations would be available at release and progress would carry over to multiplayer modes.

You are also free to hop on an ATV, helicopter, tank or any other vehicles necessary for your tactics to succeed. Though players are free to make calculated moves, enemy A.I. will react accordingly and thus, may change the tide of battle.

Missions can be played out solo or in a team of four to test your performance in a star ranking based system. These are more complex type of Operations, designed to be replayable and focused on killstreaks, weapons and other features.

Special Ops Survival is basically a wave-based horde mode where players are to go up against tides of increasingly difficult and resolved group of opponents over a Multiplayer map in co-operative combat alongside three friends.

Since progressions will carry over and are interconnected, Spec Ops mode will serve as a great add-on to Modern Warfare campaign. Also, something sinister is teased nearing the end of trailer, which probably is a throwback to Modern Warfare 2.

Call of Duty series veterans would recognize some modern rendition of familiar world from Modern Warfare games. There are plans for adding more post-launch content for Spec Ops mode but no details are revealed just yet.

One of the biggest reasons for MW craze among fans is cross-play support, which is the first ever in entire CoD franchise. That excitement has faded soon for Spec Ops Survival mode as it would remain a PS4-exclusive feature for a full year.

Despite Infinity Ward denying any timed exclusivity content for Sony consoles, it was later revealed that above-mentioned multiplayer mode in fact is not coming to PC and Xbox One platforms before October 1, 2020 at all.

However, this move shouldn't come to players as a surprise considering PS4 players got their hands on Beta program ahead of others, establishing the fact that people who own Sony consoles would get more than just Day 1 advantage.

Activision reportedly got a large number of pre-order cancelled for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare over Survival mode timed exclusivity but is still keeping up because it is too late now for any renegotiation of their contract with Sony.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PS4 Pro Bundle Revealed

A brand-new PlayStation 4 Pro Bundle is coming for Activision’s highly anticipated shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Only a few weeks from anticipating release on this holiday season, upcoming first-person shooter game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is coming to all major platforms like PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 25, 2019.

To celebrate the epic launch of latest Call of Duty spin-off series title release, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced a brand-new PS4 Pro console bundle today in association with developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision.

Priced $399.99 only, the bundle is already available on Best Buy for pre-order and will come to other storefronts like Amazon, GameStop, Walmart and select stores around Canada and U.S. soon on October 25, 2019.

As leaked earlier and now confirmed through recent announcement, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will feature a timed exclusive content Spec Ops Survival mode for a full year and this is unlike anything Sony has ever done before.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PS4-Exclusive Mode Outrage

Player on PC and Xbox One are angry over Call of Duty: Modern Warfare yearlong PS4-exclusive mode.

Only a few days ago, developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision has successfully launched an Open Beta program for upcoming first-person shooter title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Turns out, multiplayer beta for Modern Warfare has drawn largest number of audience in entire Call of Duty history. Then upon players discovering inclusion of a yearlong PS4-exclusive mode, things quickly went to south.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Leaked

Activision and Infinity Ward stated that most of CoD: MW post-release content will be released simultaneously on all platforms unlike before but PS4 players would have a limited timed exclusivity period over them.

In best cases, Sony console owners will get Day 1 advantage but when it comes to Spec Ops Survival mode, it will exclusive for a full year. This absolutely nonsense has definitely irked majority of PC and Xbox One player community.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Revealed

Earlier, developers premiered story trailer for their latest shooter in recent State of Play stream by Sony Interactive Entertainment and there, Spec Ops mode is stated to remain exclusive to PS4 until October 1, 2020 nearing its end at 2:30.

Infinity Ward garnered so much fan support for MW 2019 being a fan-service title so far but Activision apparently made a deal with Sony a year before already, probably to get them on cross-platform play on top of a hefty sum of money.

RELATED: PlayStation State of Play September 2019

Even narrative director Taylor Kurosaki went on Twitter for some clarity about this decision that made fans mad.



RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2v2 Mode Alpha Announced

Kurosaki says that except for Spec Ops Survival mode, everything else is available for players on all platforms. Moreover, this unforeseen decision was made by people above their pay grade, which is a clear nod to publisher Activision.

He also claimed that PS4-exclusive mode is only 1% of the whole game and keeping it out doesn't simply ruin entire Modern Warfare experience for a player since 99% of content comes out for everyone on same day.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer Gameplay Reveal

All that hype that was built around Modern Warfare being incredibly gory and grounded in realism, plus having cross-play support for all has dimmed down by the confirmation of a locked away multiplayer mode until October 2020.

Anyone who is not on PS4 is not getting the full game and therefore, shouldn't pay full price. PC and Xbox One player base are rallying over social media to cancel their pre-order to protest against such ridiculous action by publisher.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunsmith System Teased

By the time this timed exclusivity will over and Spec Ops Survival will launch on other platforms, essentially a new Call of Duty game will be out, which is presumably Call of Duty: Black Ops V and then people will forget about the issue.

Sony has been enjoying timed-exclusive access to Call of Duty post-launch content from 2015 and though many are claiming lately that is coming to an end, recent Open Beta coming two days early on PlayStation 4 suggests otherwise.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunfight Mode Revealed

Paying full price and then waiting for a full year only encourages many other AAA-companies in gaming industry for such unfair treatment of customers, or maybe they will even try to pull of something scummier than this next year.

If a major fraction of players from PC and Xbox One platforms ended up cancelling their pre-order, Activision may take a hit and learn a lesson but they are likely to have already anticipated something like this in advance and act accordingly.

RELATED: Call of Duty 2020 Will Be Black Ops 5

When releasing multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny back in 2014, a couple Strikes were exclusive to PS4 for a year and by the time they came to Xbox consoles, DLC expansions started coming out and those early contents lost all hype.

At this point, there may not be any way to revise their exclusivity deal with Sony but all that positive buzz Call of Duty: Modern Warfare received so far are now being blurred into oblivion for greedy moves made by its publisher.

Whatever you are handed out to, you will be wise to act quickly and work on your reflexes with any given firearms. Good thing is, enemy team is also given the same loadout and that can also make things a bit unpredictable at times.

Gunfight Mode pushes you to adapt into unpredictable loadouts in each match to survive 2v2 maps. It is a simplistic approach to Multiplayer experience of Modern Warfare, which is far more complicated with weapon customization.

Gunsmith system has brought back loadout options to define your playstyle choices that were once a core aspect of MW. Modifying your firearms can be seemingly overwhelming at first but you will get used to it with practice over time.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunsmith System Teased

Activision teases Gunsmith weapon customization system for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer.

Newest addition to Call of Duty first-person shooter series for this year is going to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision, which is currently scheduled to release on October 25, 2019.

A soft reboot for Modern Warfare sub-series, the game has revealed Gunfight mode for a fast paced 2v2 play earlier. Most recently, Gunsmith weapon customization system is teased ahead of their multiplayer gameplay reveal next month.

Activision has briefly showcased possibilities of customizing a rifle with parts in one of their latest Tweet.



RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunfight Mode Revealed

Ever since Infinity Ward has introduced customizable loadouts in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, it became an essential part of the series that each follow up release have adapted and upcoming MW will have it refined for better.

Gunsmith will allow players to tool up their primary and secondary weapons for competitive game mode with adjustments and firepower. Picking up important attachments from an array of kits is very crucial in multiplayer matches.

RELATED: Call of Duty 2020 Will Be Black Ops 5

When it comes to Assault rifles, you have nine areas to choose from to augment your weapon and they are balanced suppressor, CQB grip, corp combat, holo sight, lightweight stock, muzzle break, scout combat optic or a perk.

However, you can only customize up to five parts for each guns at your disposal unless they are already filled. According to unique playstyle, each player would take a different approach to tweak their weapons that suits them in battle.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Leaked

Most interesting aspect of gun balancing is its limitation of five mod slots because different guns will offer varied amount of available slots. When there are fewer mod slots, people will pick up parts very carefully and leave out some.

As players will get their hands on more slots, they would likely to pick up pieces that are most important to enhance those weapons. In both scenarios, people would have to be very careful about what they end up choosing to kit their guns.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – Operation Apocalypse Z Update

Gunsmith system was surely a nice throwback for veteran players of competitive mode who has been playing Call of Duty since early days. We would likely to see how perks will work out in Modern Warfare multiplayer reveal on August 1.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is planning to support cross-platform play for multiplayer mode at launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Also, they are completely getting rid of traditional Season Pass to offer free post-launch content for everyone.

Two teams of duos are pitted in a small map against each other with gears and weapons to eradicate the other party within 40 seconds. However, an overtime flag will spawn no one is killed in given time and players will have to defend it for points.

For each three seconds of defending it, you score a point and earning six points before your rival team is what you need to win a match. Players need not to create a class or worry about selecting loadouts before going into war.

Drop into a quick match anytime you want with your friends online and start shooting to save your own skin, because health isn't auto-regenerating. So, keep your eyes open, talk to your partners and be ruthless if you have to.

Infinity Ward sees Gunfight as their take on popular fighting game series Street Fighter, where players engage in short, 2v2 matches. These fights are intense and for a short time span in each fight, you need to be strategic to survive.
