Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Launches

Activision Games Blog announces the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, their new military shooter that re-imagines 2007's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. This landing page is all-in on supporting players, offering Definitions of Common Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Terms as well as a series of "getting started" pieces, covering The Basics, the Campaign, and Multiplayer. And in case the message isn't clear from those five posts, there's a sixth making the obvious point that they are making frequent updates on the new game. Here's the previously released Launch Gameplay Trailer and here are some details:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is an epic re-imagining of one of the most celebrated and iconic first-person action franchises in video game history. The game features three modes of play: an action-packed Multiplayer mode, a tactical and cooperative Special Ops mode, and a single-player Campaign, all wrapped into one entertainment experience. Like many blockbuster films, the game features exceptional cinematic design and it is rated for mature audiences.

The Campaign mode takes players through an immersive narrative that at times requires them to exercise thought, skill, and judgment to navigate some of the issues and challenges of warfare in the modern age. The Campaign is a fictional story that does not represent real-world events.

The main online component of Modern Warfare offers a variety of incredibly fun and competitive modes with loads of customization options. Go up against fellow Tier One Operators in the ultimate online playground!

Enter the world of Special Ops: dynamic experiences where four-player strike-teams work together to stop a new global threat that thrives within the sprawling city of Verdansk, and its surrounding environments.

Modern Warfare also features crossplay and cross progression for the first time in franchise history, allowing players to compete with their friends regardless of what platform they have.

Using a new engine, developer Infinity Ward brings a new level of authenticity through the photoreal, lifelike visuals to give players an immersive experience.
