Activision and Infinity Ward have announced that players will get their first look at Call of Duty's Modern Warfare's multiplayer mode later today.
The developer and publisher have announced that the debut of this year's CoD MP mode will go live at July 11 at 12pm CT (that's 6pm in the UK).
Brace yourselves though, folks – this multiplayer reveal is going to be pretty different from what you've seen in CoD games to date.
First up, we're not going to see Activision do its usual livestream and event-based rollout for the game – instead, it's going to be a shown to players via various Activision-aligned content creators.
Also, the multiplayer mode debuted isn't going to be a standard Deathmatch mode – but rather a new 2v2 player experience called Gunfight.
Gunfight will be a 2-vs-2 mode for multiplayer in Modern Warfare (don't worry, it'll stand alongside more 'classic' modes, too) and seems to be something of a departure from what we've seen in CoD games to date.
So far, we only know of four content creators that will definitely be publishing information about the curious new mode in time for the embargo at 6pm this evening.
Two of those taking part are have big history with the Call of Duty franchise. CouRageJD or TeePees will be debuting Call of Duty Modern Warfare multiplayer gameplay on their respective streams (hit the links to see more) later this evening.
Without doing a disservice to the two YouTuber's, it's the two more experience Call of Duty expert's we'll be most intrigued to watch.
CouRageJD used to be one of the main Call of Duty SportsCasters before going solo in more recent years – so you know you can trust him tRead More – Source
