With only a couple of days until Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is out, excitement can be felt in the air. As expected, early copies of Activision and Infinity Ward's game are out and there are a few snaps of it already in the wild.
Prominent Call of Duty leaker TheGamingRevolution posted one recently, and you can check it out below.
That said, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare copies don't seem to be functional, at least not yet. Some Reddit users reported that the game won't let players past the main title screen, and it will take a patch to unlock it.
Activision recently posted Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's preload times, so fans can start downloading on Tuesday, 22 October 2019 at 10:00 PDT. The official launch isn't until 25 October, so you should have plenty of time to get it locked and loaded until then.
Much like with Black Ops 4 before it, Activision made sure to post a PC trailer, which highlights all the PC-centric features coming with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. To be fair, it looks quite stunning and it mentions 4K resolution, uncapped frame-rate, "expansive customisation options" - which most likely refers to graphics settings, ultrawide and multi-monitor support, and even cross-play.
One of the most pressing concerns in regards to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been the way they'll handle monetisation, and it took separate confirmations by Infinity Ward and Activision to lay these fears to rest.
In the end, they vouched to ditch loot boxes in favour of Battle Pass monetisation, with only cosmetic items available in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare store.
It won't be available at launch, just like with Black Ops 4, as Activision says their focus is to make the day one experience as great as possible. You should be able to buy cosmetics before the year ends though.
