After the getting off-the-wall with Black Ops 4 — which featured a time zombie mode and Fortnite-style battle royale without any singleplayer— Call of Duty is coming back to reality for its next release.
Today, Infinity Ward officially announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, a reboot of the most famous and beloved shooter series with great innovation and graphics.
Unlike Black Ops 4, the new Modern Warfare have a main focus on an intense single-player campaign. As the name suggests that, it’s not a direct sequel to 2011’s Modern Warfare 3, but instead a soft reboot that kicks off a new storyline with a few familiar, returning characters Especially The main hero of the series “Captain Price”.
The campaign will be split into two halves: in one you’ll play as an operator, a special forces soldier, and in the second part you’ll play as the role of a rebel fighter in the Middle East.
One of the goals of this Single Player Campaign, with a dual-perspective story-line in particular, is to show various perspectives of a conflict.
“We are telling a story about modern war in the real world, If we whitewash it, if we backpedal from it, if we show a world where the heroes fight the terrorists and win, you never see the impact on the average person, the collateral damage, or the morally gray situations that soldiers themselves have to face.”
says Jacob Minkoff (the single-player design director on Modern Warfare).
Starting with 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the series set itself apart as one willing to take risks, like the disturbing “No Russian” terrorism scene in Modern Warfare 2 that urged players to take part in an airport civilian massacre, or the various instances in which players were put in the shoes of victims of nuclear attacks unfolding in real time.
