A new story trailer has debuted for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, giving us our best look yet at the new campaign. The trailer, following a leak on Reddit, debuted officially as part of Sony's State of Play livestream. It shows an extended look at Captain Price as he attempts to intervene in a civil war. Of course, the situation quickly spins out of control and chemical weapons fall into the wrong hands, as they are wont to do. You can watch the trailer above.
In the announcement, Activision also revealed a Modern Warfare pre-order bonus: the XRK weapons pack, which includes a M4 assault rifle and XRK .357 handgun. Another piece of news concerned PS4 exclusivity. While we already knew that maps would, unlike in the past, be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC simultaneously, State of Play revealed that Spec Ops' Survival mode will only be available on PS4 until October 2020.
This campaign is a return to the modern-day setting that made the series a breakout success, and it intends to be hyper-realistic. It's a soft reboot, using some recognizable characters (like Captain Price) but is disconnected from the previous continuity. We also know it will last about as long as you've come to expect from a Call of Duty campaign, though the studio noted that it varies greatly.
Modern Warfare recently ran a successful open beta, including one pleasant surprise: cross-saves that allow players to take progress between platforms. If you're still not sure if your PC is up to the task, check out the system specs.
