Activision has released the debut trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's multiplayer. The video was shown during Call of Duty XP and shows how the "fluid momentum-based movement system, player focused map design, and deeper levels of combat customization" intersect to create a feel for Call of Duty multiplayer.

"Infinite Warfare Multiplayer introduces an all-new combat rig system, hundreds of weapons, never-before-seen high-tech equipment, and unique prototype weapon crafting to fuse immersive, frenetic action with innovative new gameplay experiences at every turn," Activision explains.

In a second video, developer Infinity Ward goes in-depth in the various classes that are being introduced to Infinite Warfare's multiplayer. There's a deep dive into the customisation options which reinforce the play styles with unique weapons and perk abilities through Rigs.

Each of the Rigs is outfitted with distinct payloads that "boost player effectiveness and lethality in combat." Rigs allow for players to have three "persistent perks," which are called Traits. Players get to pick one Payload and one Trait to create their own twist on a play style.

The video below highlights three Rigs. The Warfighter "supports the team by getting fast kills, quickly getting to the objective, and always being on the offensive." Its Claw Payload includes a rapid-fire spreadshot firearm that has ricochet bullets. Its Trait makes scores treaks require a higher point value to attain, but they don't reset when you die.

The Merc Rig is "designed to clear enemies quickly and with authority." Its Bullcharge Payload includes an armored riot shield that lets you rush enemies and penetrate their defenses. The Infusion Trait will regenerate health faster when damage is taken, so you can stay in a firefight for much longer.

Finally, the FTL Rig is all about being an assassin. It is outfitted with experimental tech and represents "the evolution in covert guerrilla ops." Its Eraser Payload completely vaporises enemies with a compact incinerating handgun. The Powerslide Trait enhances the speed and distance of the slide.

For more on the weapons and how they can be customised, watch the video below.
