Call of Duty Modern Warfare Gameplay – how does it play?

If you’ve played Call of Duty in the past decade, the core concepts of Modern Warfare will be immediately familiar to you. It’s all about, fast, responsive shooting across the solo campaign and a variety of multiplayer modes. However, Modern Warfare pulls pack the futuristic tropes seen in previous entries to focus on something more grounded. For starters, don’t expect any sliding, wall-running or jetpacks in this one.

Infinity Ward has confirmed it is not set in the same universe as the original trilogy, intended as a complete re-imagining of the story we know and love. However, it will see the return of beloved characters such as Captain Price. Here’s hoping Gaz, Soap and Roach make a welcome return, too. There will be a solo campaign, with the narrative focusing on Russia and the Middle East, which sounds similar to the original trio of games.

When it comes to multiplayer, you can of course expect the usual selection of weapons, killstreaks and meaningful routes of progress as you play with friends and rank up. Infinity Ward has also said that campaign progression will carry over to multiplayer, so you’ll always be rewarded for playing Modern Warfare. Cross-play is also confirmed across all three platforms, which is a major change for the series, and we’re totally on board.
