Call of Duty Modern Warfare reveals its multiplayer

Activision and Infinity Ward have revealed the multiplayer for Call of Duty Modern Warfare, with it being done via a livestream event, but before that, they also have a nice trailer, check it out.

Players can jump into new modes, from quick-action, close-quarters 2 vs. 2 experiences in Gunfight, traditional 6 vs. 6 multiplayer gameplay, modes that support 10 vs. 10 and 20 vs. 20 firefights, along with high-player count maps and combat, such as the all-new Ground War, an epic large-scale mode supporting more than 100-players. And, that’s just the beginning.

“Our goal with Modern Warfare is to bring all gamers together from day one to play together,” said Patrick Kelly, Creative Director and co-Studio Head, Infinity Ward. “We’re doing away with the season pass; we’re delivering a mix of free maps, a ton of content following launch, and we’re developing the game for crossplay.  We’re live-testing now, and fans will get to try for themselves next month in the Beta. This is a new day for Call of Duty multiplayer, and today is just the start -- we have many more exciting reveals coming for fans that we can’t wait to share.”

It was also announced that the game will receive a beta in September, two weekends worth actually, with one being exclusive on PlayStation 4 and the other on all platforms. However it is not just a standard beta when it hits all platforms, the game is aiming to support cross-play and the second beta will be based around that.

“Our studio goal for Modern Warfare was to create a completely new experience, and the most varied, customisable and realistic-feeling Call of Duty multiplayer,” said Geoff Smith, Multiplayer Gameplay Director, Infinity Ward. “Our design goal is for gamers to have fun by playing again and again with their friends, where the action will feel fresh, but also familiar for all players every time they jump in.”
