Call of Duty Modern Warfare multiplayer wants to become the adult Fortnite

Call of Duty Modern Warfare is a remake in every way imaginable, down to making its multiplayer mode extra gritty and bringing back devastating killstreak rewards.

You could say that the multiplayer gameplay is going back to its roots, but it’s also taking obvious cues from much newer games like the free-to-play Battle Royale phenomenon Fortnite.

It’ll introduce cross-platform multiplayer so that console players on PS4 and Xbox One can play with PC gamers. You’ll no longer have to consult friends on which version they’re buying in order to jump into siloed, version-specific matches.

While CoD Modern Warfare won’t be free-to-play like Fortnite or PUBG, it will have a free season pass – there’s no subscription attached to extra content for the first time. Activision has previously charged $50 for extra content, and it was another decision that divided friends.

Finally, we don’t have a max player count yet, but 64-player deathmatches are a thing and the Call of Duty team says its new gameplay engine can easily scale up to support larger player counts, even though the new 2v2 mode is just as fun.
