There's a new Call of Duty arriving later this year, and it's a reboot of Modern Warfare. The first Modern Warfare launched over a decade ago, and the most recent outing was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4. 

However, thanks to a new leak, we're learning more about the rumored battle royale mode that will be included in the game. The information comes from the YouTube channel TheGamingRevoluion, which says that the battle royale mode will allow up to 152 players to compete at once on a map. Speaking of maps, it's reported that it will be a whopping 3 times larger than Blackout, which was included with Black Ops 4.

If that wasn't enough, it seems that developer Infinity Ward doesn't appear content with "only" 152 players. Instead, it is hoping to push that figure to 200 at launch, or in subsequent patches with further network code optimizations in place.

But that's not all; there's also word that players will parachute onto the battlefield from an AC-130 gunship. We should note that we'll have to take all of this information with a spoonful of salt, as Infinity Ward has been mum about the alleged battle royale mode for the game. But if this information does prove accurate, it will make a compelling entry into the rapidly growing genre. An Infinity Ward developer responded with a rather humorous tweet:

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare employs an all-new game engine with native support for real-time ray tracing. Currently, the only gaming graphics cards on the market that feature dedicated hardware to accelerate ray tracing effects are part of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX series. Turing-based GeForce GTX graphics cards also support limited ray tracing effects with the latest GeForce Experience drivers. Other features supported by the engine include 4K resolutions with HDR, volumetric lighting and spectral rendering for night vision.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches October 25th for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
