Call of Duty Modern Warfare
“With the launch of Modern Warfare, the team is taking steps to unite the community. First, the team plans for Modern Warfare to be played together across PC and console through cross-play support. Also, the team is eliminating the traditional season pass, so that they can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players.”
DirectX Ray Tracing Support
While the games announcement (and the cross play) dominated a lot of the chatter surrounding the announcement, it seems that Nvidia also wanted to get in on the excitement.
Following a post on their official Twitter account, they have confirmed that the game will include full DirectX Ray Tracing support. This will form the first COD release to support the real-time light shading technology.
What Do We Think?
The trailer itself was, I must admit, rather impressive. This is, incidentally, coming from someone who has (or should that be had?) long abandoned the series after it’s practical non-existent anti-cheat system in MW2.
There is something about this, however, that has me more than a little curious. While I’d hold off on any of the hyperbole, this is without a doubt looking to be one of the most interesting releases to date. Let’s hope it’s also one of the best!
