The official YouTube page of Call of Duty has apparently leaked key game art and a short sneak peek at the next installment of the popular first-person-shooter series. 

On May 29, Activision and Infinity Ward finally gave the CoD community some news regarding the upcoming game, teasing that the first official reveal for the title would take place on May 30.

The reveal will be taking place via a special livestream on YouTube, and fans were able to go onto the YouTube page and see the stream already scheduled. 

However, aside from scheduling the stream, it appears that Activision had gone ahead and already uploaded some content beforehand, which resulted in some users getting previews of the reveal a day early.

The image below was taken from the preview, and although it is very blurry and low resolution, it still confirms that the game will indeed be called Modern Warfare, and will have a release date in October 2019.

Activision were very prompt in taking the scheduled content down, but not before leaks of the reveal started to surface online, taken directly from the scheduled YouTube stream.

Before it was disabled, users were able to capture a short clip of the preview, which featured soldiers coming out of the shadows, skydiving out of a military plane, and climbing over a vehicle in some sort of modern city.

The preview concludes with a screen that includes “May 30 10:00 AM PT” confirming the date and time that the reveal will take place. 

What to expect from Modern Warfare reveal

While we won’t know much about the upcoming Modern Warfare game until it’s officially revealed on May 30, there have been a lot of leaks and rumors about the 2019 title.

For one, MW will reportedly be the “most controversial” title yet, which makes sense considering that there have been reports of it featuring a campaign inspired by MW2’s highly controversial ‘No Russian’ mission.

All in all, numerous major questions should be answered during the reveal, such as what the Multiplayer will look like, whether or not there will be a battle royale, and more.

Shroud explains how Treyarch can fix Fireteam in Black Ops Cold War

Fireteam is the newest game mode to hit Call of Duty, with Treyarch adding the team-based mode in Black Ops Cold War. However, according to Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, Fireteam is a long way off being enjoyable. He’s got some fixes though.

The new Fireteam game mode in Black Ops Cold War is a bit of everything. It’s part battle-royale, with players being divided up into 10 teams of four. It’s got some objective hunting, and obviously, kills go a long way to racking up points.

However, the game mode has received a mixed reception upon release in the beta. While it’s definitely a different gameplay experience to normal, the mode loses its charm pretty quickly.

Fireteam is a huge new game mode in Black Ops Cold War, but there’s some kinks that need fixing.

It can feel like a grind, with games taking forever, and long time-to-kill making the action less explosive. It can also get pretty confusing, with the objective not awfully clear. Shroud shares many of these same concerns with Fireteam as the rest of the community.

He’s got some solutions though. His biggest quandary with Fireteam is the long time-to-kill. With players getting armor on top of their health, gunfights can take forever, and even if you win one, you’re at a stark disadvantage until you find time to heal up and top up your plates.

Shroud has a simple solution though: remove the armor, and increase everyone’s base HP.

“I wish there wasn’t armor in [Fireteam]. That would be nice. Simple solution: why can’t they just make it so your HP is higher in this game mode? No armor, nothing ⁠— your HP is just a little bit higher. You still get the same regen, it might just take a little bit longer to get to max, but isn’t that an easy solution,” he said while playing through the beta.

Shroud’s problem isn’t with the armor mechanic itself. After all, he was an avid player of Warzone, and didn’t have any problems with it in the battle royale environment. It just doesn’t fit the bill for Fireteam though. It makes the gameplay clunky, in his opinion.

Segment begins at 11:12.

“The problem isn’t the armor itself, or the health that you have. The problem is that once you’ve ticked away and that armor can’t be regened like your health can, you’re now Joe Garbargio,” he said.

Then, there was also another issue: “that game mode took way too long.” That’s been a pretty hot talking point in the community since Fireteam’s release. The simple solution for that is reduce the time limit and points required to win.

Those changes will come with time as Treyarch keeps tinkering with the new game mode. For now, the jury is still out for shroud on Black Ops Cold War. While he’s enjoying himself, he hasn’t played enough yet to form a proper opinion.
