Feature: A killer with kind eyes

Who does Modern Warfare’s Captain Price really “get dirty” for?

Captain Price, as played by former Hollyoaks serial killer Barry Sloane, is a figure of gruff warmth. He imbues the new Modern Warfare with the sozzled energy of an uncle on Boxing Day, eyes smiling even as bluster falls from his mouth. “We get dirty,” he mumbles, “and the world stays clean.” Nobody wants to ask if that means Uncle Baz has soiled himself. Modern…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered now sold seperately

Activision have finally released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered [official site] by itself, no longer restricted to being an extra in an expensive edition of CoD: Infinite Warfare. Not that the revamp of 2007's seminal Call of Duty 4 is much more affordable now it's sold seperately, mind. If you want to relive the good old days, it'll cost you £35. And extra for…

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered standalone release coming

Love a duck and stone the crows, Activision are finally going to sell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered [official site] seperately. Because they're a gaggle of silly sausages, they originally launched the revamped version of 2007's wildly popular Call of Duty 4 only as a bonus included in expensive editions of the wildly unpopular Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Seven months later, Activision have…

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare hosts free MP weekend

With Call of Duty headed back to the oh-so-familiar battlefields of World War 2 later this year, I'll be sorry to see some of its ludicrous sci-fi bits go. If you've not played CoD in a while but do fancy seeing the apogee of its sci-fi silliness, you can check it out this weekend in a free multiplayer trial of 2016's Call of Duty: Infinite…

Feature: Do mention the war

Editorial: It’s great news that Call Of Duty is returning to World War 2

If the rumours are true, and they most likely are, this year we'll be seeing Call Of Duty: WWII. People have reacted with concern, but I'm here to argue it's the best possible news. There was a time when learning a game was set in World War II was deserving of the heaviest of sighs. Not only did it mean that it would be one…

That’s Sabotage! First CoD: Infinite Warfare DLC hits PC

I can't stand it, I know they planned it: the first DLC for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] has arrived on PC, one month after its PlayStation debut. Activision are scheming on an exclusivity deal - that's sabotage. As is the first DLC. 'Sabotage' is its name and new maps is it game. It's the standard CoD DLC deal: four regular multiplayer maps…

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer review

We’ve already aired our misgivings over Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s campaign mode but how does the multiplayer stack up? Does the space-future setting re-energise the arena, or is it the same as always with a fresh coat of silver paint? We threw Brendan into the murderfields to find out. It has a fitting name, I’ll give it that. Call of Duty is the series…

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Campaign review

Battlefield 1 may have fallen back to 1914 but the other first-person shooters of the year are marching on, towards militaristic futurewar. Titanfall 2 was released a week ago (inexplicably, in the gap between two monster franchises) and now Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] has rounded off the explosive triumvirate with more grenades, dogfights and tin men. It’s that final image – that…

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Has Permadeath Mode

Winding up to launch Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] tonight, publishers Activision have detailed unlock timings and blasted a few surprising details such as: it'll have an unlockable permadeath mode. They call it 'YOLO Mode' but let's pretend they don't. I'm also into talk of the mega-tough Specialist difficulty mode, which includes such fun as needing to wear helmets to survive headshots and…

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare System Requirements

With the launch of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] just over a week away, Activision are busy ticking off items on their usual launch checklist. Make live-action trailer starring celebs because reasons ☑ Announce PC system requirements ☑ Research oddball comparisons for post-launch sales boasts ☐ I'm excited to see what they come up with this year on that last note. Infinite Warfare…
