The game’s developer Infinity Ward says to expect “classic multiplayer” and a collection of co-operative operations in Modern Warfare. There’s no mention of a potential battle royale mode yet.
The first footage of Modern Warfare’s new Gunfight mode was recently released, showcasing 2v2 matches across a series of small, confined maps that are custom-built for the mode.
It was also confirmed that Killstreaks will be returning to the game, including the ability to summon a tank in multiplayer.
Set for release in October, Modern Warfare will feature a unified narrative experience and progression across the whole game including campaign, multiplayer and Spec-Ops co-op missions.
For the first time in the series PC and console players will be able to play together online via cross-platform play, while the game will ditch the franchise’s traditional season pass “in order to deliver a greater mix of more free maps, content and community events post-launch”.
