First Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer footage – full reveal in August

Activision has offered a first look at Modern Warfare’s 2v2 Gunfight mode, but you’ll have to wait nearly a month for more.

As you will have noticed, the reveal for this year’s Call Of Duty is going extremely slowly. Very little has been seen in public so far, and barely any more behind closed doors, to the point where the footage below is the first time we’ve got a good look at the multiplayer.

The new Gunfight mode is based on ‘multi-round cage matches’, with the first to win six rounds being the winner. Everyone gets the same loadout, which is switched automatically every two rounds – when the teams also swap to start at the opposite end of the map.

There are also some overtime rules where if a round lasts more than 40 seconds a flag spawns and you’ve got 10 seconds to capture it. So there’s a lot going on, but it looks pretty fun.

You can see three different maps in the footage: King (a warehouse interior), Pine (a forest), and Stack (some kind of container storage in a desert).

Gunfight is only one mode amongst many though and it doesn’t seem like we’re going to see any others until 1 August.

At that point there’ll be a Twitch livestream which will demonstrate how progression works across all modes, which hopefully means a first look at co-op as well.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released on 25 October for Xbox One, PlayStaion 4, and PC, which really isn’t long now.

Although there have been rumours of a new battle royale mode, as far as official information goes the game has just the three modes: a story campaign, standard multiplayer, and co-op (that isn’t Zombies).
