Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - Everything you need to know!

Prepare to go dark when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches tomorrow. Get up to speed with the game in our handy recap guide while you wait!

What is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the latest entry in the popular shooter series from Activision and Infinity Ward. The game also shares the same name as the 2007 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, with the 2019 version serving as a reboot for the series. Like the 2007 game, you'll once again be seeing characters such as Captain Price leading his team around the world to take on a global threat. Price along with the SAS have teamed up with the CIA and the Urzikstani Liberation Force to retrieve stolen chemical weapons. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will take players from London to the Middle East and other locations as the joint task force battles to stop full-scale global war from destroying everything.

Along with a fantastic single player campaign, the game will once again be bringing the heart pumping mulitplayer the series is best known for with returning modes such as Domination, Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy. The game also includes a brand new Ground War mode that sees 64 players go head to head in 32 player teams. Unlike last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, there will no longer be classes and operators will be cosmetic in nature. This makes things fairer among all players as they no longer have to worry about balance between the various abilities as the game is doing away with Loot boxes and a Season Pass to offer a Battle Pass, that gives rewards by leveling up.

Players can also mount their weapons to walls at the push of a button, giving for some cover fire under intense action. Another bonus will be the ability to reload while aiming down sights, something that should delight everyone who hates running out of ammo during a gun battle. Speaking of guns, you'll once again be able to customise your weapons thanks to the Gunsmith - allowing players to use attachments to improve their weapons. Killstreaks will make a return to the series, which will mean that players will have to get a certain amount of kills in a row in order to unlock various perks.

The PC Version will also be the best possible version of the game, with a wide range of graphic options such as resolution, higher framerates, wider FOV's, rebindable keys and much more! This year they'll even be cross-play support to allow players on all platforms to play together, with options to play on keyboard or pad depending on your preference. The game also has an improved graphics system that allows for even richer visual detail in the game, making it the most impressive looking Call of Duty to date.
