just about all of my battlefield friends have played the 2007 call of duty 4 modern warfare Cod 4 was such a genre defining game back then it was a bit more militaristic with its presentation and since then the franchise has been getting progressively faster and more arcade like and for those of us that prefer a shooter that feels a little bit more grounded in reality or has more strategic components to it we checked out the next few games in the franchise but nothing really seemed to come close to Call of Duty 4 it just kept getting more and more arcade like and further and further away of the game that we initially fell in love with obviously the franchise has become a juggernaut of gaming and Who am I to criticize their stylistic choices as it certainly brought their studios great success but the gamer and me who loved Cod for never felt like the franchise ever went back to the game that had bodied what I liked so much from the early years however what I've just seen and heard has me thinking that the next Cod may be exactly what I've been waiting for from the franchise since 2007 this year's Call of Duty title not yet released is a total reimagining of the franchise original breakout title call of duty 4 modern warfare however it's renamed as call of duty modern warfare the game uses a totally new engine and brings back key characters from the original game like soap in price a full multiplayer reveal is currently scheduled for August 1st but yesterday activision revealed the game's 2v2 mode called gun fight it's basically modern warfare threes face off mode reworked it features small scale maps specific to the mode itself both teams have identical inventory low deaths that seem to be randomized between rounds healing is disabled so any damage taken remains throughout the round each round is 40 seconds long and the first team to win six rounds wins the match if the teams are still alive after 40 seconds an overtime phase adds a central flag that can be captured whoever captures or kills the enemy team within 10 seconds wins the gameplay was revealed as part of a special event with select streamers on twitch you can check out their full stream videos on their streaming channels which will be linked in the description now based on what we've seen yesterday and so far in the trailer it looks like modern warfare is a nearly complete overhaul of the classic Cod experience visually it bears a striking resemblance to modern titles like Rainbow six siege and battlefield character animations are much more natural and dynamic than past games the sound design is much more meaty and realistic than any Cod titles I've played today and it looks like the weapons have some much more significant recoil now it's hard to gauge actual performance of the game based on twitch streams but it did look like there might be a 60 FPS lock most of the time that said there's no telling what the game was actually running on the heads up elements and icons are clearly from the PlayStation 4 but it could have been running on the base ps4 the ps4 pro or even a PC dev kit which is actually pretty common for a lot of these events when I've gone to other events in the past they plug-in an Xbox controller they get the Xbox UI stuff up on screen but it's actually running on a PC in the background past Cod titles in the series have struggled to maintain a locked framerate on face console Hardware hopefully Modern Warfare's enhanced visuals don't come at the expense of performance I'm very curious to know more about the new engine as it could mean a lot of performance improvements on the PC side of the equation plus better visuals this is kind of an exciting time for PC gamers especially if you're a battlefield gamer and I want to talk about what it means to me as a battlefield gamer clearly with battlefield 5 the franchise has been letting a lot of its core fanbase down bugginess gameplay elements being out of balance basically ignoring the modern military genre for many years now battlefield players have wanted a return to the good old days battlefield 3 battlefield 4 for a while and it just hasn't been happening dice hasn't been delivering all of a sudden we've got a cod game going back to its roots something that many battlefield players my included remember very fondly and it looks cool it looks good if they can replicate and reimagine that cod4 experience in an updated 2019 way and support it well on the pc platform for PC gamers holy smokes this could be the next big game this could nab that modern military experience well before dice gets there with their game provided that they're actually making say Bad Company 3 is their next title in fact it seems to be the trend these days as Cod is just scooping all the genres from battlefield before they even get there aside from battlefield one which was World War one in a very risky one Cod scooped world war 2 from them and it seems like they might scoop a modern military shooter once again now obviously Cod is not going to offer a massive battlefield esque type experience with tons of vehicles and 64 player servers at least I don't think so it could be some sort of surprise announcement that they are going for that competing market but there's a huge portion of battlefields audience that just wants the infantry based game modes I mean look at operation Metro lockers you know some of the most popular maps in the military battlefield gaming lineup we're just infantry mashups just tons and tons of infantry fighting against each other cod can provide that experience probably on a slightly smaller scale but they can ramp up the pacing based on map size and map design and whatnot this could be something that really pulls away the battlefield fanbase and I mean me as a was a huge battlefield fanboy looking at this next Cod game like oh oh hello there like this is what I've been wanting dice has left their modern military fanboys high and dry for a while now and even if they did announce a new modern military game based on their company's recent performance I don't know how excited I'd be for it I think I'd be like well I'll wait and see what you do with this engine before I get pumped for any of your next games because of how badly you've screwed and how many design decisions I don't agree with even with battlefield ones much better game performance and much healthier game lunch the designs in that game really threw me for a loop and just did not cater to what I liked about the franchise in total and then all of a sudden I'm looking at a cod game that's got scope glint now you can use whatever weapon you're holding is a melee weapon so you just hit them with your with your gun which is a feature I've always liked there's cool takedown animations the audio looks better the overall animation system looks a lot better you're not using jump Jets and while running and all this crazy fast-paced gameplay it looks like back to the basics type approach to the game you got my attention Call of Duty I'm ready let's see what you got the timing of this could not be more perfect for the battlefield fan that feels like they've been neglected for a while in the modern military space and if Cod plays their cards right and somehow creates a game that both caters to the their fan base and the battlefield fan base they could be looking at a massive massive title on their hands it's hard to predict because I've also seen people online saying that hey this latest Cod game looks really slow-paced and much more tactical and not exactly what I've been used to or enjoying about the previous game so there's clearly a big Call of Duty audience that does like that fast-paced while running jump jet craziness laser gun type gameplay and that's fine the franchise has built up that audience over the year so maybe they're shooting themselves in the foot with this type of game I've seen a lot of skepticism and back and forth within the cod community itself but from the battlefield perspective or from the gamer who likes the more strategic or the more tactical approach to first-person shooters this is an amazing looking game so far now as a battlefield fan one of the biggest questions I still have about the new Call of Duty game is how is it going to play in the larger 32 player game modes the 16 B 16 is it going to still have that kind of decently paced methodical tactical approach to gaming or is it going to be like the traditional Cod game where it's just grenade spam people jumping off of things and shooting rocket launchers at each other all the time are people gonna get ridiculous killstreaks that clear out servers and just kind of ruin game modes or make them too spammy it's hard to say because a lot of the elements that make cod cod are still things that I don't necessarily love so how much of that stuff is going to invade and maybe detract from some of the more methodical gameplay that's what I'm really curious about because the 2v2 stuff looks cool it doesn't have all that added on crazy kill streak stuff from the larger format game modes but once we go larger format what's it gonna play like that will probably be one of the biggest determining factors and whether or not this game is going to steal a lot of my time and attention if the large format game modes play extremely well very methodical less spammy not is based on kill streaks then cool I'm probably gonna be super into it but if it plays out like air strikes everywhere and people just chucking grenades as soon as they spawn in it could be one of those things that I'm like okay you know like this looks really cool it plays really well into v2 but as soon as we got a larger format it just feels like any old Cod game then that might be what holds it back for me so that's my biggest question my biggest concern about the game right now and we'll just have to wait and see more again that August first major multiplayer reveal will probably show a lot of that so hopefully it'll answer some of those questions thanks for watching guys let me know what you think about the latest Cod game is it something that you're thinking about hopping on to check it out let me know in the comments down below and I'll see you next time this is level-cap signing off you

    It is strange that you consider MW and BF3 the roots of these games when I would deffinately say both are rooted in WWII.

    In fact, I prefer the WWII setting but both franchises have failed miserably at delivering a good WWII game unfortunately.

    Another strange thing, you said that a lot of BF players want the infantry based gameplay? To me BF has always been about combined combat. BF1942 was awesome. I think BF should actually focus on creates a more fun and full-on combined arms game. Games seem to me crossing over into each others territories a lot recently and it is making the gaming scene a little less interesting.

    Interesting video, I am looking forward to MW 2019 too 🙂

    I love both franchises, whenever I'm craving faster gameplay I play COD and whenever I'm craving slower, more tactical gameplay I play BF4. I'm pretty sure this MWR is gonna be the King of FPSs though.

    How can you moan about the genre of the latest battlefield? Eveyone wanted a game that would take us back to world war’s era, which they did. Don’t act like you are talking about the entire playerbase of battlefield V because a lot of people are really happy about the current genre

    Cod 4 is very arcadey in my opinion. It's just more bare bones. I dont think mw2-3-or black ups one are any more arcadey than cod 4.

    Sounds like somebody's trying to get away from BFV? I feel you, I left a while back. I went to COD BO4… Let me tell you it's a lot harder to be good at that game. Now I'm dealing with some players that have been playing COD since before elementary school and are grown up now.

    Bro kill streaks is what makes cod fun. If those are nerfed and suck then this isn’t going to be a good year for cod.

    "more natural animations"… "more significant recoil"

    This looks super unnatural and hardly any recoil. This looks like typical CoD to me, with BF graphics and a CSGO/R6Siege hybrid type of gameplay.

    This is not for me. I had hopes of returning to the series.

    Battlefield 1 is still definitely my favorite shoot (besides halo) just because I am a ww1 history guy so it was perfect, beautiful, good gameplay, and amazing history.

    Man i have followed and played battlefield since i was little ihave to say that by far my favorite one is bf3. It was the most fun and was so satisfying to play from the smooth recoil all the way down to just the basic UI and gun and weapon attachments. I want another battlefield experience like that, something that gets me excited to get up in the morning just to go jump out a jet with c4 and do some crazy sh* tXD

    It feels like all the FPS games I love so much have been dropping in quality more and more, Cod, Battlefield, Halo, all these genre defining masterpiece franchises have changed so much in the worst way like Cod and halo have gotten so much less militaristic and feel like they’re not cod or halo and same with BFV, atleast Halo and cod seem to be trying to please the core fans and go back to the roots which is pleasing to see, now hopefully dice delivers for once in lots of years we want a modern military game ( BF3, BF BC2, BF4 ) though I am happy I do hope MW isn’t too too slow I’d like something somewhat close(ish) to the pace of Black ops 1 and Mw1 all i can see is it looks really good and nostalgic to the great cod games

    Call me a hater but it seems nothing like Call of Duty 4. So fast paced and too much jumping. Like a highly polished Korean f2p shooter. And why takedown animations? Does anyone like those?
