Infinity Ward has just uploaded some hot new footage of its upcoming reboot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The focus on this video is to give players a short glimpse of the title’s formerly announced 2v2 multiplayer mode.
Previously unveiled as the Gunfight mode, Infinity Ward and Activision gave earlier details about how the mode was conceived, and the general layout that differentiates it from other game modes. In particular, the smaller, more confined, more modal maps allow for frenetic dueling that doesn’t allow both players to skip a beat, lest they get time-outed after 40 seconds of “prolonged” combat and be forced to take a base to win around.
The video shows all of the details of that very description in full stunning 4k 60fps glory. There were a total of three maps, and three weapon loadouts demoed in the video, so there’s a lot to take in and appreciate. Again, as previously announced, the loadouts for each player is the same, so it all comes to your skill, precision, and decision-making on whether you can come out on top of the game mode’s full six rounds.
Gameplay mode information aside, it is also quite nice to have an even better comparison now of this upcoming reboot to the older version. Crisp graphics are, of course, to be expected. But more than that, movement is now considerably smoother, or should we say, more naturally fluid, using current-generation graphics
Even the gun sound and visual effects are markedly improved with the sensation of an actual high-speed projectile moving past as it grazes you. Well, at least we kind of notice that now with this new footage compared to the last Twitch stream demo.
But if that still doesn’t whet your appetite for the reboot, don’t fret. We still have August 1st to look forward to as multiplayer modes for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare finally gets an official reveal.
