The first Call of Duty Modern Warfare campaign trailer has debuted and it gives players a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming title.

The hype train first started rolling once players discovered the campaign trailer was being shown in the main menu of Black Ops 4, but those who didn’t own the game were left in the dark.

Luckily, Sony’s State of Play broadcast led off with the trailer so everyone was able to get a look at what was to come.

The trailer ran a little over two minutes and led off with the fan-favorite character Captain Price, who has been a staple of the Modern Warfare series, and gave us a virtual tour of the various locations we’ll be visiting – everywhere from London and the Middle East to other global locations.

The story follows a group of soldiers led by Price who are fighting to retrieve stolen chemical weapons and from the looks of things, it’ll be jam-packed with action set pieces that will obviously feel right at home in a Call of Duty title. 

No actual gameplay was shown from the trailer but just by watching it you can easily see it’s the best looking Call of Duty title to date, which was practically a given considering what the new engine is capable of.

Having a campaign back in Call of Duty will be a welcome addition after Black Ops 4 made the controversial decision to cut one entirely.

The Modern Warfare franchise has been known for its hard-hitting stories and it’ll be interesting to see the direction it goes in after all these years after Modern Warfare 3, the most recent installment in the series.

We have a good idea of the types of locations that will be covered thanks to the cinematic trailer, but there’s still a lot of mystery. 

Activision says this campaign will be pushing boundaries and breaking rules, so if that sounds good to you then you’ll be very excited about the new direction.

All of these questions will be answered once Modern Warfare releases on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 25.

Warzone dev reveals fix for missing Trick or Treat rewards bug

One of Warzone’s lead developers has responded to the frustrating Trick or Treat rewards bug during the Haunting of Verdansk event, with players not getting the Pumpkin Punisher Grau blueprint after completing all the challenges.

The Haunting of Verdansk is the special Halloween event in Warzone, with lots of new content for players to sink their teeth into.

This includes new Operator packs, including skins from horror films Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as the new Zombie Royale game mode and, of course, the Trick or Treat Rewards.

By searching chests in 16 different locations, players can earn all manner of items from calling cards and emblems to the awesome Cleaver melee blueprint. As a result of unlocking all 16, you’re supposed to get the Grau blueprint weapon, Pumpkin Punisher — but for some people, this isn’t happening.

The Pumpkin Punisher gives a spooky spin on a previous Warzone favorite weapon, the Grau 5.56.

A number of players have reported that even after completing all 16 Trick or Treat challenges and unlocking all the rewards, the Pumpkin Punisher remains locked and isn’t added to their Armory.

One player reported the issue to Joe Cecot, the Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at developer Infinity Ward, and he suggested that the likely issue is the UI thinks players have everything, but they’re actually missing one of the rewards.

To fix this, Cecot offered a workaround, though it might not be particularly fun: he advises players to hit all the locations again and the gun will likely be unlocked, to make sure the game properly registers the completion of every single challenge. He also says that it’s “most likely the location that is still not registered will give candy out of the box.”

Of course, this will be slightly frustrating for players who have not yet unlocked the Pumpkin Punisher, despite having completed all of the relevant tasks.

Cecot did add that in the long run, they’ll “most likely fix people in this state,” though it’s unclear when that could happen, or even if at all.
