Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s engine revamp promises a generational leap in fidelity

Richard Leadbetter: “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare goes official today with a reveal trailer giving us our first glimpse of the look, feel and content of the new game – a COD offering somewhat different to anything we’ve seen to date. Developer Infinity Ward is targeting a soft reboot of sorts for the Modern Warfare franchise: a Casino Royale-style revamp that transports beloved characters like Captain Price into the battlegrounds of the here and now, whether it’s the enduring nightmare of Middle Eastern war zones or eliminating domestic terror cells in central London, it’s a big tonal shift for the series – often gritty, harrowing and even shocking in places. From a technological perspective, the trailer demonstrates a radical revamp of COD’s rendering technology and the trailer revealed today is running in real-time on PlayStation 4 Pro. No CG fakery, no ‘in-engine’ footage – what you see is what you get, and it’s a new milestone for the franchise.”
