Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Makes Famous 'No Russian' Level Seem Like 'Baby Stuff'
| Last updated
Following the big announcement for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare today, gaming fans across the globe are coming together to discuss what we can expect for the new instalment, which drops on 25 October.
Some of the internet's gaming elite, who have already had previews of the game, are already warning us it's going to be a VERY intense one - so much so, that a certain controversial level from a past edition of CoD will pale in comparison.
Many of you will remember 'No Russian', the famous level on 2009's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 that saw an undercover CIA agent participate in a mass shooting at a Moscow airport, in order to gain the trust of a Russian terrorist group.
Not only did some people find the plot contentious, the level itself also proved to be a tricky one, meaning the moment went down in CoD history as one of the franchise's most memorable.
However, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is said to walk all over 'No Russian', which is apparently 'baby stuff' compared to the new kid on the block.
YouTuber Drift0r tweeted: "CallofDuty: Modern Warfare makes MW2's No Russian look like a Pixar Film. I'm deadly serious when I saw that I was shocked by the level of realistic violence. Will be surprised if the game gets rated M instead of AO. Good luck buying it in NZ, DE, or SEA countries."
Not at all. I was shocked at the level of realistic violence. The game plays like a LiveLeak helmet cam. Terrorists wear civilian clothes and try to blend in, everyone dies slowly when shot, and it is easy to make mistakes that cost innocent lives. https://t.co/jmPavfmwK8

In another tweet, he added: "No Russian is baby stuff compared to this."
Many others are agreeing too, with another YouTuber called Syndicate tweeting: "I saw previews of #ModernWarfare's campaign & all I'm saying is that I cannot wait to play the full thing. You thought 'No Russian' was crazy. Just wait!"
Here's our impressions of what we saw in regards to Modern Warfare's campaign at Infinity Ward. This game is taking Call of Duty to another level in many aspects; if you thought No Russian was the furthest CoD would go, you're in for a surprise: https://t.co/wHL7oNhmcD pic.twitter.com/Gxm3kQvP6d

Keshav Bhat, a writer from Call of Duty news site Charlie Intel, has also reported back from a studio visit last week at Infinity Ward, where he was shown campaign gameplay from two separate missions to show off some of the story and how the game looks.
Bhat's verdict? You've guessed it.
"If you thought No Russian was the worst they've done, this game matches that level of intensity in many aspects," he said, adding: "The graphics are the best we've seen in Call of Duty yet."
Consider us intrigued. VERY intrigued.
