Activision’s new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare re-imagining is set for a big multiplayer reveal on August 1, but ahead of that, details about the game’s “Dark Edition” have come to light. [Update: The big reveal has come, and we’ve got full details on the Dark Edition and what to expect from Modern Warfare’s multiplayer mode.]
Leon Hurley posted images of the googles, which look pretty extreme. As fans may recall, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 also had a premium version that came with night vision goggles.
Pricing for the Dark Edition hasn’t been confirmed yet, but a since-removed GameStop listing suggests the premium bundle will cost $200 USD. Developer Infinity Ward also tweeted about the night vision goggles, and you can see their image below. The caption strongly suggests that the Dark Edition will be formally announced during the multiplayer reveal event on August 1.
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer reveal on August 1 is expected to bring news about, of course, the multiplayer mode. The franchise is known for its strong multiplayer elements, so people are understandably excited to find out more about what Modern Warfare has to deliver.
We’ve already learned about the close-quarters 2v2 mode Gunfight (see the video above), but Activision has more to share about the full suite of offerings for Modern Warfare’s multiplayer package.
Recently, Activision confirmed that killstreaks will return in Modern Warfare, and one of them involves chemical warfare.
The new Modern Warfare, which is inspired by the 2007 game Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, launches on October 25 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
