‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’ multiplayer teaser features helicopter drop-in
A 15-second teaser posted to “Call of Duty” social media accounts illustrates one of the game’s “tactical infils (or ‘infiltrations’)” that “usually occur between the time you’ve chosen your Multiplayer Loadout and the start of the MP match,” according to an explanation from the franchise website.
Players can expect to see their character carry that equipment loadout as the infiltration takes place. The “Call of Duty” blog suggested that this is only one of several different scripted match entrances.
This new style of match introduction could be taken as a nod to Battle Royale genre spearheads “PUBG” and “Fortnite” that have players parachuting or paragliding in from great heights. The Battle Royale mode from “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4” adopted a similar approach.
By contrast, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” is choosing a more realistic mechanism, in keeping with its overall tone.
The teaser arrives ahead of a multiplayer gameplay premiere set for Aug. 1 via the streaming platform, Twitch.
“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” is a reimagining of one of the series’ high points, 2007 release “Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare”.
The new game is to launch on Oct. 25 across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
A form of cross-platform multiplayer is anticipated, in which players from the game’s PlayStation, Xbox and PC communities can be grouped together according to whether they are using gamepad controllers or mouse and keyboard setups. RGA/JB
