The next installment of the Call of Duty franchise brings us back to Modern Warfare, and Infinity Ward revealed a bit more information about the new engine.

Fans are excited not only to hear about the future of Call of Duty, but they are also interested in knowing about what the new engine can do for the series.

Infinity Ward and Activision have been stressing that this new engine will help push the series forward performance wise, as well as graphically. 

Call of DutyCall of Duty Modern Warfare launches October 25.

The details

We know little tidbits about the engine already, but a new interview from Infinity Ward revealed even more about what we can expect from it. They want the game to feel as realistic as possible, and this engine will certainly help out in that regard.

They wanted to make the guns look and feel accurate in Modern Warfare, something that required a lot of research. 

“We had to simulate a rainbow-like effect on the oil of the gun after you’ve cleaned it up,” Infinity Ward said. “Translucent effects on the gun, ceramic effects, powder coating effects, elements of the magazines. We researched all of that. We made everything in the game look as good as they possibly can. The reflections, shadows, the ambient occlusion; all the bells and whistles.” 

Infinity WardModern Warfare is the most technically advance Call of Duty title ever.

Captain Price, a familiar face from the Modern Warfare series, is making a return here and IW wanted to make sure he was captured in the best way he could.

“We performance capture tons of data, including detail like the wrinkles, the changes in tautness of the skin around the mouth when characters are talking or are excited. This is performance capture 2.0, where you’re getting this additional level of detail.”

The game will still reach 60 FPS.

With all these effects making Modern Warfare look better than any title before it, the game will still run at 60 FPS. All the new graphics in the world still don’t mean anything until fans are able to get a look at the game running in action.

Infinity Ward is talking a big game about their upcoming title, but we’re still waiting on an official gameplay reveal.

Cheaters already ruining Black Ops Cold War with SiLLY | CharlieIntel Podcast #6

People have been calling out for Activision to create their own anti-cheat system — in the same vein of Valorant’s Vanguard — in order to deal with the hackers that have plagued both multiplayer and Warzone ever since its release.

Mike and Keshav speak to SiLLY in Episode #6 of the CharlieIntel Podcast. During this week’s episode, we look at what needs to be changed following the Black Ops Cold War Beta. They also touch on whether the game needs a bespoke anti-cheat to ensure the game isn’t ruined by hackers, as well as what the transition to PC means for the CDL.

One of the big topics covered in the group discussion is the differences between the first and second week of how the beta felt in-game and if sliding is where it needs to be at the moment. Keshav also states that he feels they ‘overcompensated’ when nerfing sliding which left it feeling off, and he is hoping they dial it back a bit.
