Activision plans to release its Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot a little over a month from now, and the company is dishing out the details on what the system requirements are for the game. We had a sneaking suspicion that gamers would need a stout system given how gorgeous the game looks -- especially with real-time ray tracing effects enabled -- but it is especially demanding with respect to memory. Minimum and recommend system requirements have been posted, and Activision is calling for at least 8GB of system memory. However, moving over to the recommended specs, those requirements double to 16GB of memory. 8GB is likely the bare minimum that most folks buying a new PC will want... Read more...
Developer Infinity Ward is planning to reveal details about cross-platform play in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, during a livestream event today. It will also be sharing information about what is to come in the second weekend of the beta. Incidentally, that is also when the beta will extend beyond the PlayStation 4 to include Early Access on the Xbox One and PC. Cross-play support in Modern Warfare is a highly anticipated feature, and one that is long overdue—no previous Call of Duty game allows players on one platform to play against competitors on another platform. The livestream is also set to be the first official look at cross-play in Modern Warfare, assuming we get to see it in action.... Read more...
Call of Duty fans know that the rebooted Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game is set to launch on October 25th. The devs had an alpha for gamers to try out that ended on August 25th, and now the beta schedule for Modern Warfare has been announced, and it kicks off today for some players. If you preordered CoD: Modern Warfare on the PS4, you can get in on the beta today starting at 1 pm ET and can play through tomorrow.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not launch until the end of October, but many gamers are already enjoying the alpha. As with all alpha and beta launches, there are already a slew of problems and new features. The developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare just released new maps and are looking into a variety of issues. The alpha for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launched this past Thursday and gamers are able to test out “Gunfight mode”, or a 2v2 mode where players and a teammate are tasked with eliminating another duo. The first team to win five rounds is victorious. The alpha launched with three small maps dubbed “Speedball”, “King”, and “Pine”.... Read more...
Real-time ray tracing is headed to more games. That includes Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the upcoming title slated for an October 25, 2019 release. In partnership with Activision and Infinity Ward, NVIDIA says the PC version of Modern Warfare will deliver the most immersive and photo-realistic experience, due to the addition of ray tracing and adaptive shading. "With the game’s October 25th release fast approaching, we can now reveal that the game is being enhanced with real-time ray-traced shadows, within both the single-player campaign and 2v2 Gunfight multiplayer mode," NVIDIA says. Here's a look at the first ray-traced trailer for Modern Warfare... NVIDIA has been working side-by-side... Read more...
Back in May, Activision unveiled the reboot of the classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare shooter complete with ray tracing-enabled graphics. Since then it has announced the new Modern Warfare 4K gunfight mode. Activision is now teasing another new feature for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare courtesy of a new gunsmith teaser. Gunsmithing will allow players to customize their two main Loadout weapons. Each of the primary and secondary weapons can be augmented to give players the exact type and style of firepower for any multiplayer game mode. Each of those weapons has nine areas that can be augmented and customized. Customization areas include the muzzle, lasers, optic, stock, rear grip, magazine,... Read more...
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...
PlayStation 4 players will be the first to receive additional content related to Activision's upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game that was just announced. Sony has an exclusivity agreement with Activision that will see PS4 owners have access to downloadable content (DLC) ahead of Xbox One and PC players. Sony confirmed the agreement in a reveal trailer for the game that was posted to its YouTube account on Thursday. Here's a look at the trailer... Towards the end of the video (starting at the 1min42sec mark), a slide appears indicating that new content will arrive "first on PS4," as shown at the top of this article. The narrator reads the line out loud. In the fine print, it's revealed... Read more...
It's been over a decade since the first installment in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare franchise was launched, and its publisher Activision feels that now is the perfect time to reboot the series. This time around, Infinity Ward is at the helm developing the game and it will see players thrust into a modern-day conflict that has the potential to tip the scales with respect to the global geopolitical balance of power. Let's get this out of the way first: the new Modern Warfare goes back to the basics and brings back the single-player campaign that was removed from Black Ops 4. The game was built from the ground-up with an all-new game engine, and it brings native support for real-time ray-tracing... Read more...
The day has come for Activision to formally introduce Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. A reveal is scheduled for 10:00 am PT (1:00 pm ET) today. In the meantime, we already know that the next installment in the CoD franchise will be called Modern Warfare, and have even seen a small bit of footage, courtesy of an inadvertent leak by Activision. Image Source: Reddit (yOuRbEaRdIsWeIrDhuh) For a brief time, some users reported seeing a low resolution preview of the upcoming trailer on YouTube. The thumbnail image for the video displayed both the name of the upcoming title and what we presume will be the box art, along with an October release. Oops!

Would you pay full price—or close to full price—for a game that is nearly a decade old? Activision is banking on Call of Duty fans doing exactly that when the standalone version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered ships later this month. If you want the full experience, you'll have to cough up $40 for the core game, plus another $15 for the accompanying DLC that includes extra maps and other additional content. Activision is catching a fair amount of heat from gamers on this one. Initially, the controversy surrounding the remastered release was Activision's decision to bundle it with the Digital Deluxe, Legacy Pro, and Legacy versions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. At its cheapest,... Read more...
The wait for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is down to about a month, though in the meantime, the game's retail packaging for the PlayStation 4 gives us something interesting to talk about. Apparently the game, which comes with a digital code to download a remastered version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, will consume 130GB of storage space if installing the entire kit-and-caboodle. A picture of the box art shows the storage requirement, which is for both titles combined. It's not entirely clear how much space each individual takes up (we'll do some math in a moment), just that the two combined will eat up 130GB of storage. That requirement's been gaining a lot of buzz on the Internet, though... Read more...
