About

Captain John Price returns as stakes are raised once again for the Tier-1 special forces team in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019. This entry into Activision’s popular first person shooter franchise reboots the story from the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare trilogy. Players will be swept in to a new vision of the conflict between covert ops and freedom fighters seeking dangerous chemical weapons that can shift the balance of power on a global scale. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 shines a new light on the series, under the lens of more modern storytelling and technology.

Plot and location

The story of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 reboots the established canon in the previous series, from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. While many of the familiar elements from the events of those games return, the circumstances are being told in a different, sometimes morally ambiguous, light in this alternate universe.

SAS Captain John Price returns as the main protagonist. Price and his crew must fight with or against a wide variety of special forces teams, freedom fighters, and Arab soldiers. The covert ops missions take players from the scenic European cities such as London to the embattled Middle Eastern territories, including the fictional nation of Urzikstan.

There are many allusions and nods to the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare trilogy, including the familiar tropes and in-jokes that fans of the series will know about. By the end of the campaign, Captain Price forms a new Task Force 141, which will lead into the events fo Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.

Gameplay

Some civilians will act like enemies, only to be revealed to be doing something else. Making the wrong judgment call that lead to civilian injuries or deaths lead to lower scores, which are ranked from A to F. Reaching higher scores lead to better rewards. There is also more freedom in how to approach and accomplish missions, such as choosing the right position for a sniper or using the environment to your advantage.

Also, multiple characters are playable in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 single-player campaign. Each character will have their unique perspective on the events that take place in the storyline.

Visuals and other features

The graphics in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 is largely improved from the original trilogy. Compared to the original 2011 to

Multiplayer in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 has also been beefed up, with up to 100 players in the Ground War mode or a much smaller scale with the Gunfight 2v2 40-second match. Another option is Realism, a hardcore mode which eliminates the standard HUD. Night Vision challenges players in the cover of darkness, requiring night vision goggles for the duration of the match. Killstreaks also make a return, though it can be converted to Scorestreaks with the Pointman Perk. And for those who love to customize their loadouts, there’s the Gunsmith feature (carried over from Call of Duty: Black Ops III).

Another game feature brought back is Special Ops, which was seen in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. This allows for co-op mode for the single-player campaign. Up to 4 players can join in on Special Ops. Plus, there’s the Survival Mode.

Perhaps the biggest addition Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 is the Season 2 introduction of Call of Duty: Warzone. The stand-alone Battle Royale style mode can have up to 150 players in teams of one to four. An interesting feature with Warzone is players have a shot at respawning in the main map if they can win in 1v1 sub-match at the Gulag.
