Shroud got the opportunity to check out Modern Warfare at a gameplay event hosted by Activision where fans and streamers got their first look at what the game has to offer.
The latest Call of Duty installment looks to be the most ambitious title in years and as a result, he had a lot to share.
"It is extremely different," he said. "It still has that like Call of Duty feel to it where you run and gun but they've definitely tuned it down. It's a lot more tactical, slower-paced, like scoping in your weapons, changing your weapons. Overall, I'm a fan and I wanted to play it more."
When asked if there was anything that surprised him about the title, he said the 20v20 came out of nowhere for him.
It's a good review from the former CS:GO pro as he'll definitely be hitting Call of Duty hard once it releases, as he did with previous installments.
Shroud's word holds a lot of weight considering his size and reach on Twitch so it's good for Modern Warfare to see he has positive words to say.
With that said, after the interview, he did mention the game was difficult.
"CoD is hard," he said in a tweet. He was playing against many skilled players in the gaming community so it's possible he was referring to the people there and not the game itself.

We're still several months out from the release and we're sure shroud will be just fine when he's inevitably streaming.
