The publisher describes the reboot’s single-player story as an “edgy, culturally relevant and thought-provoking” campaign with returning characters from the Modern Warfare series, including fan-favourite Captain Price.
“Players will engage in breathtaking covert operations alongside a diverse cast of international special forces throughout iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East,” the game’s blurb reads.
In development at the franchise’s original studio, Infinity Ward, Modern Warfare is described as an “epic reimagining of the iconic Modern Warfare series from the ground up”.
In addition, Activision says it will deliver post-release maps and content for free to all players, as opposed to through its traditional paid season pass model.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will release on October 25.
