Modern Warfare doesn’t officially launch until Friday, October 25, but a handful of professional players and streamers have got their hands on an early copy and are broadcasting the game live, so we’ve got them all in one place for your convenience.

It’s Christmas eve for Call of Duty fans, as they anticipate the fourth Modern Warfare game (fifth if you count MW Remastered) coming from Infinity Ward.

The game sees a return to a fan-favorite subfranchise for the first time since 2011’s Modern Warfare 3, but brings a new spin on it, with a reimagined story line.

For most fans, though, multiplayer will be their biggest attraction, as it’s the mode where most of your hours playing will be spent.

For competitive players, multiplayer is even more crucial, and we can now get our first glimpse at the full range of launch maps, weapons and killstreaks.

Although the rest of us will have to wait until the game is available in our area before jumping into the action, you can get an early look via the livestreams on Twitch.

These are only a selection of streams so far, with more expected to go live soon over the launch period, and you can check out all the channels on Modern Warfare’s Twitch category.

As even bigger streamers like shroud and Dr Disrespect get on the game, we can expect the viewership numbers to spike, but it will have a daunting task to better Black Ops 4’s initial viewer numbers, which outperformed Fortnite and League of Legends in its first week.

Warzone star Rated joins Tommey on 100 Thieves’ roster

Building on the world’s first Call of Duty: Warzone esports team, 100 Thieves have added former London Royal Raven, Rhys ‘Rated’ Price, as the second member of their battle royale roster.

While Rated wasn’t a focal point of the Royal Ravens in the Call of Duty League, he has emerged as one of the best Warzone players on Verdansk. With his stream popping off and tournament money rolling in, it should be no surprise that he was among 100T’s top candidates for their growing roster.

When Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag announced that 100T would be fielding a battle royale team alongside their Los Angeles Thieves CDL squad, it was historic and fans were anxious to hear who would get signed.

Now, Rated joins fellow native of the United Kingdom and former CDL pro, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren, as the team’s highly respected core.

Based in Los Angeles, some may be surprised that 100 Thieves have gone across the pond for their Warzone cornerstones. But, looking at Tommey and Rated’s successes in Verdansk, the signing becomes exponentially justified.

While Tommey sits at No. 5 on the Warzone earnings list, Rated is nearby at No. 7 with a hefty $70K in winnings. Those numbers become even more impressive when one factors in that Rated’s first major tournament invitation was in late June, while some of the other top earners began competing months earlier.

Characterized best as a steady player, Rated picks his angles and fights deliberately, shoots as straight as anyone, and has rightfully become known as one of Verdansk’s most intimidating forces. It’s a testament to his skill that competitors regularly express some degree of annoyance when finding out that they’re stuck in a lobby with the wicked Welshman.

Having teamed with Tommey many times already, the addition is a sensible one. Most recently, the duo took second place during the HusKerrs Howl tournament. While it’s unclear who else will be joining the roster, Tommey and Rated provide an excellent foundation with clear comms and a general reluctance to tilt.

With another Englishman, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, already signed to the Royal Ravens, one has to wonder if Nadeshot will put up the cash for Warzone’s best unsigned star: Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad.
