In preparation for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's launch on PC, Activision is sharing a wide range of information regarding the FPS' forthcoming release on the platform. Important release information like when PC owners can preload Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is shared, as well as a new trailer showcasing PC footage. The reveal also includes details about PC-exclusive features that will be released included with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at launch.
For Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PC players interested in pre-loading, best get that pre-order in over the upcoming weekend. Pre-loading for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PC will officially begin on Tuesday, October 22, at 10:00 PDT (it isn't clarified if it's AM or PM, but AM can be assumed). To pre-load, PC players will have to have pre-purchased the game through Blizzard's Battle.net platform. The full game will be playable starting October 24 at 6:00 PM PDT.
PC port developer Beenox may not be doing a robust overhaul of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for PC like Rockstar is doing for the Red Dead Redemption 2 PC port, but there will be a handful of features available exclusively on PC. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare won't have a frame-rate cap on PC, regardless of the resolution. That includes 4K as well as ultrawide or multi-monitor resolution setups. And while details aren't explicit, Activision says Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will have "more customization options than we've ever had in a Call of Duty game" on PC.
Activision also notes several other features that, while not exclusive, should appeal to PC gamers. The 64-player Ground War multiplayer mode is brought up as an example of gameplay that PC players would look forward to. The mode will also be available on console. Another feature PC gamers will appreciate is full cross-play between PC and console, which will be available at launch.
While Call of Duty: Modern Warfare won't be offering any PC-exclusive content beyond appropriate and necessary features for scaling between different PC hardware setups, that shouldn't be taken negatively. The Call of Duty franchise has always looked and played excellently on PC going all the way back to the franchise's origins as a PC-exclusive series in 2003. While the franchise has leaned towards consoles in the past decade, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare looks to be a solid PC title with robust support on the platform. Fans will be able to tell for themselves starting soon.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases October 25 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
