Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is unveiling its ‘Multiplayer Universe’ on August 1

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been making waves recently for being a radical departure from what we’ve come to expect from the series. It’s not just a reboot of the Modern Warfare series, but one with a totally new game engine and new multiplayer modes. 

Earlier today, a couple streamers got to show off the game’s new 2v2 Gunfight multiplayer mode. It’s a whole lot slower and more claustrophobic than the usual Call of Duty fare, which is pretty interesting to see. You can watch the reveal on the channel below but beware: Annoyingly loud streamers ahead. 

The reveals don’t end there, however. Call of Duty will be revealing the ‘Modern Warfare Multiplayer Universe’ on August 1. According to their Twitter account, the Gunfight mode shown off today is merely a ‘fraction of the full online Multiplayer Universe’. 

 It seems like Infinity Ward is really trying to freshen up the game modes this time around, both in campaign and multiplayer. I say this because the game’s story mode has also raised some eyebrows recently for its dark content, and it will also be the first Call of Duty game in a while to ship without a Zombies mode. 

Whatever you might think of the game mode shown off today, you have to admit that the game looks visually stunning. Smaller maps were shown off in this game mode, but it’s exciting to think about what big-budget set-pieces we might be able to play through upon release.
