Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is sounding like a breath of fresh air for the iconic CoD franchise.
Not only are we being promised darker, grittier and more realistic storylines, but we’re also expecting some changes to the gameplay. Thankfully, Activision isn’t keeping us totally in the dark on that point, as a new gameplay mode is about to be revealed.
‘Gunfight’ is a brand-new multiplayer mode that’ll be a part of Modern Warfare, and developer Infinity Ward has teased that we’ll be able to get our first look at it tomorrow.
According to the developers, Gunfight will be a 2v2 multiplayer mode that promises fast-paced action.
It’ll be shown off to the world in just a few hours’ time, courtesy of some pro gamers including ProSyndicate.
“We’re excited to announce that @LEGIQN, @ProSyndicate, @TylerTeeP, and @CouRageJD will be streaming live from the studio to debut Gunfight, a new, fast-paced, 2v2 multiplayer mode in #ModernWarfare! Tune in tomorrow at 10am PST!,” tweeted Infinity Ward.
The hype for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare continues to grow, and we really could be on the cusp of one of the best CoD games of all time.
In other related news, it’s been revealed that the game will have an Aim Down Sight reload for the very first time.
Although Black Ops 4 has a weapon attachment that lets you maintain Aim Down Sight while reloading on a few sniper rifles, this will mark the first time it’s been a weapon’s default feature in CoD.
Animation director Mark Grigsby took to Activision’s website to post a blog post on the matter.
“One other thing we added this year is the ADS [Aiming Down Sight] reload,” writes Grigsby. “In the past, if you’re ADS, and you’re shooting and you reload, the weapon would go off to the side, and you’d have to retrain to get to your target. This time if you reload, it stays on the target, so you can stay in the battle.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare arrives October 25th, 2019.
