Developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision have released a new trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which teases the story underpinning the upcoming shooter’s single-player campaign.
In a post on Activision’s blog, the publisher provided some details of Modern Warfare’s campaign: “The Campaign engulfs you in a raw and gritty narrative, bringing unrivalled intensity and shining a light on the changing nature of modern war. Visceral and dramatic, the single-player campaign pushes boundaries and breaks rules. You will engage in covert operations alongside a diverse cast of international special forces and freedom fighters.”
Activision continued: “The stakes have never been higher: This is a heart-racing saga that will affect the global balance of power. You will work with lethal Tier One Operators, including Bravo 6 himself – the iconic Captain John Price – sometimes within the grey area of their rules of engagement. Expect the Campaign gameplay to be reflexive and strategic, supporting the narrative through a variety of differing playstyles. These include close quarter, stealth missions, and long-range combat. Your tactical decision making will be put to the ultimate test.
“In a desperate mission, Captain Price and the SAS will partner alongside the CIA and the Urzikstani Liberation Force to retrieve stolen chemical weapons. The fight will take you from London to the Middle East and other global locations, as this joint task force battles through betrayals, moral dilemmas, and no-win situations to stop full scale global war.”
Plus, Activision drilled down into one particular mission, describing some of the characters Captain Price will fight alongside: “Chemical weapons have fallen into terrorist hands: They could be anywhere. An attack has already rocked central London. Time is of the essence. Captain John Price suggests a business trip to Urzikstan. He meets Commander Farah Karim, leader of the Liberation Force (ULF). CIA operative Alex is embedded with the ULF, working with Farah and her brother in return for their help. But that assistance comes at a cost…. Meanwhile, Kyle Garrick, a former British Army Officer, joins Captain Price to engage the enemy in a widening series of clandestine operations across continents, as the theatre of war expands, and the global balance of power is threatened.”
Call od Duty: Modern Warfare is scheduled to be released on October 25, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. To keep up with the latest news, visit its website.
