Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Shares 4K Footage Of New Gunfight Mode

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Shares 4K Footage Of New Gunfight Mode

This looks amazing

Infinity Ward has shared 4K footage of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's new Gunfight mode and it looks amazing.

The new fast-paced 2v2 mode lasts just 40 seconds per round, set in a small map with a series of changing weapon loadouts.

The new footage shows the crystal-clear game play users can expect when the game lands in October.

Until then, Infinity Ward's sneak preview shows the premise of the Gunfight mode: two teams of two facing off against each other, using the same weapon loadout.

There's more than one way to win the quick battles, with the easiest, of course, being killing the other team. But if no one wins outright, a 10-second overtime is added, giving players more time to go for the kill or to capture the other's team's flag.

If at the end of the round and the additional overtime, no team is eliminated and no flags have been nabbed, whichever team has the most health is declared the winner.

The new mode is just the latest announcement from Infinity Ward about the game.

Earlier this month, animation director Mark Grigsby revealed that gamers would now be able to load while still aiming down their gun's sights, which might sound like only a small change but will be pretty significant during battles.

In a blog post he wrote: "In the past, if you're ADS [aiming down sight], and you're shooting and you reload, the weapon would go off to the side, and you'd have to retrain to get to your target.

"This time if you reload, it stays on the target, so you can stay in the battle."

Game-makers have also improved graphics and reactions from gunfire, meaning users will see the impact of their shots in a more realistic way.

"We needed to do different effects on the weapon's target, so that the power of these weapons translates into the targets that you shoot," Grigsby says. "The sparks, the smoke, the effects, all of it has to be representative of the power that you're releasing from your weapon, so it all comes through with our effects."

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set to be released on 25 October for PC, PlayStation 4 and XBox One.
