Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is one of the year’s most-anticipated games and it’s already making its presence felt. The recently concluded 2-week open beta event saw “millions of players” take part in cross-platform play between PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. This is the first time the crossplay feature has been part of the CoD franchise.
“We’re focused on delivering the best online experience possible and that includes bringing the community together with crossplay,” said Patrick Kelly, creative director, and co-studio head, Infinity Ward. “We appreciate all of the players from around the world, who played and shared feedback. Your support is not only a driving inspiration to the entire team, but also provides us with important data and feedback which helps us improve the experience for launch.”
CoD: Modern Warfare is a reboot of the 2007 game of the same name, but one that brings a bunch of new features to players. Ground War is a 64-player mode and there are rumors that more than one 100-player mode may be available at launch. In great news for players, all of the post-launch map DLC will be free.
As part of the celebratory mood after the open beta, Activision released a new story trailer:
“In a desperate mission, Captain Price and the SAS will partner alongside the CIA and the Urzikstani Liberation Force to retrieve stolen chemical weapons. The heart-racing fight will take you from London to the Middle East and other global locations, as this joint task force battles to stop full-scale global war. Lines will be drawn, your resolve will be tested, and the world will look to you to do what needs to be done.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches on October 25th. Learn more on the official site.
