Some fans of Call of Duty got a chance to see alleged pre-alpha footage of the new series entry for 2020 thanks to a Twitter leak. The original tweet had a video with nearly 2 minutes of alleged footage from the new game, which is rumored to be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. That tweet has since been deleted, but Walshburg promises there are more leaks to come. The final game will likely look very different from what was seen in the leak, assuming the footage is real, since it was pre-alpha. The video was said to be surprisingly rough, making it hard to get a good sense of the game. However, the footage is believed to be real and was said to look like a Call of Duty game.

There's a reason the video games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare are called first-person shooters, as gamers see the action on the screen through the eyes of the character they're controlling. Modern Warfare is a quintessential first-person shooter, but some fans have been asking for a third-person perspective for the game. An alleged glitch in the game has turned up that allows players to experience third-person mode again. The glitch enabled third-person mode with a video posted to reddit showing a player running around the Shoot House map while playing Survival mode. The franchise in the past did have a third-person view in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in modes like team tactical and cage... Read more...

While many folks today are enjoying Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its Call of Duty: Warzone battle royale add-on, there's another member of popular franchise launching tomorrow.

Infinity Ward wants to know exactly why the players stopped playing, and has sent out a survey to try and figure out how to lure them back. Gamers have complained vocally about a myriad of issues with Modern Warfare since its launch.

The devs say that they have been working to resolve those issues since day one. Infinity Ward did release a patch on December 6 that addressed some of... Read more...
When NVIDIA's GeForce RTX graphics cards first launched, there weren't many games on the market that could take advantage of Turing's new bells and whistles. Over time that's changed, however, and some of this year's biggest hits—titles like Control and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare—can take full advantage of stunning ray-traced visual effects. NVIDIA's high-end Turing cards include some of the fastest GPUs around with equally eye-watering pricing, but it doesn't have to be that way if you want to take a more modest approach. The $299 - $329 GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB and $499 GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER are more than capable in their own right without breaking the bank. We wanted to check... Read more...
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been on the market since late last month. That has given avid gamers enough time to play the game and figure out the in and outs of what works... and what doesn't. So far, there is a list of weird quirks that have surfaced about the game. One of those quirks deals with the recoil of some of the games more powerful weapons. Usually, when a player crouches, their weapon is more accurate. However, some Modern Warfare players have found that certain weapons are less accurate when crouching. The weapons that have less accuracy when crouched includes the Kilo 141 assault rifle, M-13 assault rifle, and the MP-5 submachine gun.  The issue with recoil when crouching... Read more...

A rumor has been making the rounds that claims Treyarch and Activision will reboot another beloved game in the Call of Duty franchise next year. The rumor claims that Call of Duty: Black Ops will get the reboot treatment. The game is alleged to be called either Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 or Call of Duty: Black Ops.

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... Read more...
Like most developers getting ready to launch a major AAA game title, Treyarch, developer of the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 game that launched this month, held a beta and used that feedback to improve the game. Black Ops 4 earned rave reviews from the players who participated in that beta for its gameplay and the speedy nature of the servers hosting the game. However, players have been upset because when the game launched, the performance of the network hosting the online-only game wasn't up to the same standards as the network hosting the beta. During the beta period, the servers for the game were reported to be operating at 60Hz, but after launch, the servers are operating... Read more...
It's an old joke that every new Call of Duty game is just like the last, but if you say that about Black Ops 4 (or "IV"), chances are you're not actually paying attention. This game marks a major departure for the series, in that there is no focus on a single-player campaign (though solo elements still exist). Instead, the game's developer pads the mainstay multi-player modes with Call of Duty's first take on the Battle Royale genre. Like that old Call of Duty joke, it's also become somewhat comical that nearly all game developers now want  to integrate Battle Royale into their games. Who doesn't want Microsoft Solitaire: Battle Royale Edition? That doesn't actually exist, but would it surprise... Read more...
Here we have it, folks! This year's installment in the Call of Duty franchise has been officially confirmed by Activision. The game was announced via the official Call of Duty twitter account and will be called Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Rather curiously, news of the game leaked earlier this week by none other than Oklahoma City Thunder point guard James Harden, who was spotted wearing camouflage and a baseball cap with the Black Ops 4 logo emblazoned on it. Today's tweet confirms the Harden was showing off the real deal. The Beard has arrived, and he's ready for battle with the Thunder. pic.twitter.com/ky3E8TK9Hy— NBA on ESPN (@ESPNNBA) March 7, 2018 Treyarch, the studio that developed... Read more...
The hype surrounding the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII is intriguing and very justified. Not much longer than a decade ago, it seemed the world was sick and tired of World War II-themed games, but thankfully, zombie games have since come to our rescue, cleansing our palettes. Today, WWII actually looks like it could give us a fresh experience, and create an interesting online battlefield. Unfortunately, "interesting" is proving true already, but not in a good way. Over the weekend, the beta for WWII went live, and almost immediately, complaints stemming from testers began to hit the web. In almost record time, those who find joy in ruining other persons' online experiences equipped themselves with... Read more...

Activision hyped up the release noting the inclusion of the full campaign mode along with all of the infamous multiplayer maps that made the game a hit. “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered features fully improved texture resolution and detail, revamped animation, remastered audio and much more,” writes Activision. “Fans can relive the full, iconic story campaign as they're transported around the globe with Capt.

This week’s San Diego Comic-Con was supposed to be a rather joyous occasion for the Sledgehammer Games. The dev studio has already revealed its involvement on the latest installment in the Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty: WWII. However, Sledgehammer has been rather tight-lipped about the game's upcoming zombie mode. Unfortunately for Sledgehammer, the trailer for the zombie mode leaked to the interwebs over the weekend, just days ahead of when it was scheduled to be unveiled for fans. For the folks that have worked long and hard on the zombie mode, which is titled “Army of the Dead”, the leak has been a bit of a bummer, obviously - though a leak is sometimes the best hype.

Activision’s Call of Duty series is definitely going back to its roots. As we reported late last month based on leaked materials for the game, the latest installment in the franchise will be called simply Call of Duty: WWII. The announcement of the game was made this afternoon via the official website for Call of Duty, and the worldwide premier of the new title will take place April 26th at 10AM PST. The about-face comes after the Call of Duty series increasingly began moving away from its “real world” roots and into future combat environments. This shift in scope came to a head last year when Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was announced. Reaction to the game was negative from the very start,... Read more...
