Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the next restart of the 2007 classic by Infinity Ward, will be released Oct. 25. But it already generates many mixed reactions, including within our own team at IGN. And that seems to be the developer's intention.
The question is whether the new Modern Warfare will have anything to say and it will be able to do it in a manner respectful of the countless men and women who served or serve in the world. 39, army forces. We have described the two missions we had seen before E3 in our big overview, which we also invite you to take a look at. But here are some excerpts:
You go up the stairs and the bad guys scream with concern, knowing that something is wrong. You hear panicked voices. Bursting into another dark room, you shot a villain, turned around and saw a frantic woman. She screams, "No, no no!" But gets closer to the table with an object. You shoot him a dead bullet while his hand was almost on the object that she was looking for, which, on closer inspection, was a detonator. On another floor, you do more close-night fighting powered by vision, punctuated by a meeting with a woman carrying a baby. You do not pull the trigger – and you do not know if the game would allow you if you tried – but it's still a troubling moment.
"Disturbing" is a good starting point for the rebel mission I saw later. This is the story of Rebel leader Farrah, who dates back to when she was a girl of about 10 years old and where the Russians were taking violent control of their Eastern European city block by block . A particularly massive soldier, like Ivan Drago, walks into your house, a gas mask covering his face. As a young Farrah, you watch your father try to fend off the brute, to watch him put away and shot. While bleeding while sprawling against a wall, you and your younger brother must try to escape the enemy soldier's hand. You crawl through an open ventilation duct between the rooms of the one-story cottage, slide down the hallway, grab a screwdriver on the floor, and then slip behind the hunter. You plant the tool in his calf. He writhes in pain, throws you aside and the pursuit resumes. You repeat this twice more and, at the third meeting, your little brother jumps on the back of the intruder, hangs on his neck and gives you the opportunity to remove his weapon from the soldier's back and to put a few bullets in his chest, barely missing, shoot his own brother and end the fight. It's stressful, dramatic and tense – like the version of a Call of Duty boss fight. And I hope we will see more moments like this throughout the campaign.
For the moment, you can see new Screen shots of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and those lucky enough to see them at E3 have two parts of the campaign from which they have to leave, and different people from the 39; IGN team have had extremely different reactions. We will also be eager to hear your feedback as soon as Activision publishes mission gameplay sequences. You can find our thoughts in the video above.
