Modern Warfare Season 2 Trailer Hints at Battle Royale

In-game trailer for Season 2 suggests Battle Royale mode is coming soon to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Long-awaited Season 2 of first-person shooter game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has finally arrived from developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision, which hints at game modes, maps, operators and tease at more content.

Return of operator Simon "Ghost" Riley and fan-favorite classic multiplayer Rust map in Season 2 Battle Pass is truly exciting. Though highly requested battle royale mode has not debuted yet, enough in-game hints were left out there.

In opening shot of the trailer, three soldiers walk in to an airport terminal like area and one of them gets shot out of nowhere. His attacker finishes up with another bullet to the head and gets killed by remaining soldiers in return fire.

They talk about a gas closing in and move out before Ghost appears from above, contacting Captain Price telling something is wrong in Verdansk. Telling his boss to send some fighters that he can trust, Ghost moves out of there promptly.

Viewers are then shown a larger location resembling to Terminal map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. There are ongoing firefights throughout entire area being covered in green gas and four soldiers in parachute jumps down a plane.

This minute-long teaser could very much likely to be an early sneak peek in battle royale for CoD: MW. Aside from a huge ruined airport map to explore and fight, there will probably be a new gameplay system for three-player squad.

Following launch of MW Season 2, a known Call of Duty YouTuber has noticed some change made to in-game main menu. In addition to its regular four options, there is a newly added "Classified" section that you can't click on.

Though this latest change is not a direct hint at anything exact but it clearly leaves room to add one in future. According to a now-deleted key-art on Reddit, battle royale mode for Modern Warfare will be called "Call of Duty: Warzone".

Crash Bandicoot Game Teased in PlayStation Ad

Latest PlayStation ad from Sony might have teased brand-new Crash Bandicoot game awaiting reveal.

When Crash Bandicoot franchise originally debuted back in 90's on PlayStation consoles, it almost became an unofficial mascot for Sony's gaming platform and even today, it is largely popular to a wide range of audience.

A recently released live-action commercial by PlayStation featuring renowned characters from many first and third part IPs, most likely has teased a brand-new game from the same series, rumored to be called Crash Bandicoot Worlds.

At one point at this ad titled "It's Time to Play" (0:11), Crash can be seen racing in his kart with an Aku-Aku mask floating alongside him and another never-before-seen one hovering around villain character Neo Cortex on that same frame.

Given how much it costs to make an advert like that, no will try to sneak in a non-canon mask there without any valid reason. Many have simply overlooked that small detail but then started spinning out ideas about it when noticed.

Nicholas Kole, artist for Activision owned subsidiary developer studio Toys for Bob then Retweeted the following.

Kole previously posted on Twitter and then quickly deleted an image that seems like a character art from an unannounced project. He then suspiciously shared an image from the ad pointing out that mystery mask by a fellow a Twitter user.

Shortly afterwards, a fan on Reddit noticed a print ad for Crash Bandicoot on a bus as part of same campaign for PlayStation brand. They used modern rendition of his character model that is slightly revamped to look similar to PS original design.

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.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunsmith System Teased

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-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.
