Feature: War is hell, if you haven't heard

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare review

Of course Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare has nothing interesting to say about war. Of course its guns feel good, and its explosions are many and impressive. Of course the multiplayer is essentially the same game we've been playing for over a decade, only prettier and in more flavours. Of course a part of me likes it, and of course part of me is jaded…

Modern Warfare RTX: A guide to Call of Duty’s RTX ray tracing performance

There are two types of ray tracing game that have emerged over 2019. On the one hand you've got your big, bombastic feast-for-the-eyes type games like Minecraft RTX, Control and Metro Exodus, and on the other you've got your subtle, squint-and-you-miss-it jobs like Battlefield V and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its ray traced shadows fall squarely into the…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC hasn't improved much in 2019. Despite there being more HDR gaming monitors than ever before, the very [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR continue to be quite expensive compared to non-HDR monitors, and the situation around Windows 10 support for it is still a bit of a mess. However, provided you're willing to fight through all that, then the next step on your…

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is already here

My dad’s favourite game series returned today. Call Of Duty 100% puts him back in his army days, and though I’m not sure I should be encouraging that sort of thing, it’s nice that we have a shared interest. And it makes me wonder if he did cool things with drones. Despite being a resomethinging of the series, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare looks very…

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare replaces paid DLC and loot boxes with a Battle Pass

It's taken a few years longer than most big publishers, but Activision are finally turning away from paid DLC map packs for the next Call Of Duty. New maps and modes will hit Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare free for all players, the CoD crew announced last night. Loot boxes are also being ripped out, replaced with the new hotness of a Battle Pass system…

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare’s launch trailer is a familiar mission with atrocious hair

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare's launch trailer hit today, and it's looking more like the old Modern Warfare than ever. We've already heard of how this year's CoD is a more "edgy, culturally relevant and thought-provoking" than more recent entries. In the past five years, CoD has been both an interstellar space adventure and a nonlinear cyber dreamscape, after all. But Call Of Duty will…

Feature: Here are the stats of every gun in the Modern Warfare open beta!

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare guns – weapons, stats, and the new Gunsmith system explained

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, much like its players, will live and die by its roster of guns and weapons. Fortunately, from what we played of the open beta in September, the gunplay is not only as fantastic as ever but also as diverse as ever thanks to the new Gunsmith system, which offers a wealth of customisation options that affect the base stats of…

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s open beta fires up in a few hours

Modern Warfare is almost upon us, again. This year's Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is much more modern than those other Modern Warfares (all three of them) which, in hindsight, aren't quite so modern anymore. Things are gritty and real this time around, which is both much more modern and far more war than before. See? Open the Blizzard launcher and take a look for…

Nvidia’s new RTX bundle now comes with a free copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

If you've yet to buy an Nvidia RTX graphics card, there's a new game bundle in town. Previously, Nvidia were giving away free copies of Control and Wolfenstein: Youngblood when you bought any qualifying RTX or RTX Super GPU, laptop or desktop, but starting today until November 18th they're going to be lobbing in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with them instead. As you may…

Call of Duty’s first RTX trailer is so subtle it needs giant green boxes telling you where to look

The new (and definitely not old) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare may be one of Nvidia's big-shot ray tracing games for 2019, but the first RTX trailer for Infinity Ward's upcoming shootybang is probably one of the least impressive things I've seen since Nvidia first announced their realistic reflection/shadow tech this time last year. Previously, most of Nvidia's RTX On / RTX Off trailers have…

Feature: Now with added Minecraft and Dying Light 2

All the Nvidia RTX ray tracing and DLSS games confirmed so far

It's Gamescom this week, which can only mean one thing - more confirmed ray tracing games for Nvidia's RTX and selected GTX 16-series graphics cards. Indeed, the big one that's just been announced is Minecraft, which (like Quake II RTX) is getting full, real-time ray tracing support for everything from water reflections to its entire lighting system. That's not all, though. Dying Light 2 will…

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare to hold a cross-platform open beta

It's nearly time for more war. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - a much more modern shootbang than 2007's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - is opening up a cross-platform beta from the 21st to the 23rd of September. Hurray, we get to shoot at console rubes. Boo, platform factionalism is weird and bad and it's hard to see that being a fair fight…

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Gunfight mode is an intimate 2v2 deathmatch

I'll admit that I'm almost impressed that Infinity Ward is showing restraint with the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. I figured that it would try and gobble up the ever-increasing player numbers that have been spurred on by the battle royale craze and announce the world's first 7.53 billion multiplayer mode, set on a 1:1 recreation of the Earth. But my cynicism was shown…

Feature: "Ask the hard questions"

Meet the geographer who tells studios when they’re ignorant and offensive

We hear a lot about level designers in games. Voice actors, concept artists, big directors. Kate Edwards is none of those things. She is a geographer. It seems like an odd job for the games industry, but the more you learn about her work, the more it feels essential. Edwards is hired by studios to cast her geo-eye over the shuffling NPCs of sci-fi space…

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare returns to the present on October 25th

Coming to us from Activision's ever-cycling stable of studios comes another Call Of Duty this October. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is a reimagining of this particular sub-series, rather than another remake or sequel, and not to be confused with Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, or Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. Original developers Infinity Ward are returning and threatening an "edgy, culturally relevant…
