New updates are being added to the bottom of this story….

One of the most anticipated games of the year 2019, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, is finally available for purchase and play. The game has been developed by Infinity Ward, who has already created many successful titles including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare features Campaign, Multiplayer, and Special Ops mode for players. Campaign mode is a single-player experience that has a gritty narrative.

Under Campaign mode, players can play as three characters, including – Sgt. Kyle Garrick, CIA Agent Alex, and Farah Karim, leader of the Urzikstani Liberation Force.

The multiplayer mode of Call of Duty Modern Warfare offers very fun and competitive game modes along with plenty of customization options. In multiplayer mode, your Operator will get a customizable loadout, killstreaks, Field upgrades, and other rewards to turn the course of the match.

Speaking of Special Ops mode, it is a co-operative PvE experience. Under this mode, you, along with the other three teammates, will get to do difficult and complex missions.

Players will get the chance to join the global alliance Armstice, which is a joint force of Allegiance and Coalition Operators led by Kate Laswell (CIA) and Sergeant Kamarov (FSB). It was formed to stop the access of funds and weapons going to global terror organizations.

Infinity Ward has also released the first patch notes for the game, which focus on bug fixes and can be read down below.
