Modern Warfare Crossplay
It must be difficult to think of a name for your annual first-person shooter franchise Modern Warfare Crossplay.
But still, it came as a surprise when publisher Activision and developer Infinity Ward revealed that the 2019 Call of Duty game would be called Modern Warfare.
What is modern vintage?
Luckily, the answer is yes. Once you play it, you can see why Infinity Ward and Activision dug up the name – it takes a lot of inspiration from the 2007 original.
Which was the game that first brought the WWII franchise out and ushered it into modern times, and that’s how it opened it up. A new world of possibilities.
It mainly applies to their single-player campaign, which, while brief, is very sweet, by far the best single-player campaign in CoD for many years.
A little controversial?
Here are, of course, plenty of shooting sequences, spanning the gamut, from large-scale robberies to cleaning nearby houses, going through a mop after a terrorist attack in Piccadilly Circus.
The story centers on the fictional country of Urzikstan, occupied by a Russian regime led by the brutal General Barkov.
Tristan is also home to the (unnamed) terrorist organization Al Qatala. Still, much of Modern Warfare’s story centers on Farah Karim.
Head of Urzikstan’s native resistance movement, assisted by various characters played by you who, in the Classic Modern Warfare style, hail from the SAS and the CIA.
Modern Warfare’s story has drawn quite a bit of controversy. You can see why: its goal is to paint a picture of a country’s human cost under occupation and sometimes veered into American propaganda territory.
Far from controversy, Modern Warfare’s single-player campaign proves to be a lot of fun – it’s fast-paced, cinematic, and varied.
And it has excellent replay value – it’s a bit more forgiving than the norm for Call of Duty games campaigns, encouraging you to increase the difficulty level and embark on various games.
Additionally, Modern Warfare has a new mode titled Realism, which removes the HUD entirely (and makes it multiplayer as well).
Technically, Modern Warfare is very impressive. Visually, it’s merely one of the best-looking games ever made, and its production values are through the roof.
That silky feel and responsive weaponry we’ve come to expect from Call of Duty games are very much present and correct.
As always, the main meat of a Call of Duty game resides in its multiplayer element, and the multiplayer side of Modern Warfare is quite exemplary.
Once again, it takes hints from the original Modern Warfare crossplay, in the sense that it reverses things a few years back – the killstreaks. For example, make a welcome return.
Classic modes like Domination, Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy. Hardpoint, Capture the Flag, and Free-for-all, but some welcome innovations have also been including.
The most interesting is Ground War, a large-scale model in which up to 100 players can participate.
Capturing, and maintaining objectives. Ground War uses huge maps and encourages the use of vehicles, making it quite reminiscent of Battlefield.
Along with the excellent single-player campaign and Special Ops, CoD. Modern Warfare adds to a powerful package.
If there was a suspicion in recent years that the Call of Duty franchise was beginning to creak under the stress of its annual nature (albeit with a rotating roster of three devs taking turns). This game does a great job of easing such fears.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is gorgeous to look at, exciting and absorbing to play, and very stylish.
