The annual Call of Duty franchise is looking to mix things up this year with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, a reimagining of the 2007 classic. In addition to a brand new engine powering the experience, the game aims to be much more mature than previous games in the series by using more grounded and realistic depictions of contemporary conflicts. Of course, multiplayer aims to be a major component of this year’s Call of Duty and while Infinity Ward has yet to fully reveal that side of the game, official gameplay for the new Gunfight mode has finally released. The nearly 6 minute 4K enhanced trailer put together by Infinity Ward shows off official gameplay from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Set on three different maps (the wooded map called Pine, the industrial warehouse King, and the shipping container fortress called Stack), players can get a good sense as to how the fast-paced 2v2 mode works. No respawns make this mode extremely tense where one wrong move can sink a squad. … [Read more...] about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reveals 4K 2v2 Gunfight Gameplay

EA and Activision go head to head almost every year with premium first-person shooters. However, this year EA is taking a step back with its Battlefield franchise. The winter season is open for business for Modern Warfare. Why that is? It seems Battlefield 5’s mediocre performance last year and the fact that Respawn is working on Star Wars had a role to play. But the lack of an EA shooter game this year is actually a good thing. It not only ensures quality for the next EA shooter but also opens up a realm of possibilities. There are so many shooters in EA’s library that can compete with Activision’s Call of Duty next year. EA is now in a position to bring something truly special for us in 2020. What EA Should Do in 2020 With a Premium FPS Game? EA has an amazing catalog of FPS games that haven’t seen the light of day for a long time. These games, if brought back, EA can give Activision’s Call of Duty 2020 tough time. Activision is doing something different … [Read more...] about Will EA Bring Back Medal of Honor and Black Next Year?

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has made several name changes to a few recently-released racer skins in the game, specifically with regards to those that feature names that could be considered racially insensitive. Developer Beenox issued a patch earlier this week that tweaked the names of several new DLC skins added to the game in an update on July 6th, but never explained why it was doing so. Of course, gamers can read between the lines when many of the renamed skins feature either “Black” or White” in their name. For example, the White Tawna skin has been renamed to White Tiger Tawna, presumably to differentiate from a race-based descriptor to one that has an animal connotation. From a design perspective, White Tiger Tawna sounds better, but White Tawna when she’s not actually a human does sound odd. But the biggest offender in the new Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled skins seems to be the Watermelon Tawna skin, which has since been renamed to Summertime Tawna. … [Read more...] about Crash Team Racing Renames Racially Offensive Skins
