Gamescom19: Activision shows Modern Warfare 2v2 and 4k gameplay

A couple of cool Call of Duty: Modern Warfare tidbits emerged from Gamescom today, including 4k PC gameplay and 2 on 2 alpha news.

Going alpha

Two big pieces of news today for this fall’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The biggest news though might be the announcement of a 2v2 alpha test that’ll be exclusive to the PS4.

Activision says that there won’t be any restrictions to the test, so you won’t have to have a pre-order in to play. Actually, you won’t even need to have a PS+ subscription. That’s a new one.

Maybe the best part too, is that it opens this week. This Friday, August the 23rd, the alpha test will open up for play. A total of 5 2v2 maps will be available, including 2 that have never been seen before.

Beautiful battles

Aside from the actual test, there was some news too about the PC version. Activision is specifically mentioning the “real-time ray tracing” and the power of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX.

Whatever power might be behind these visuals, it’s hard to argue the result. Modern Warfare on the PC is looking flat-out amazing.

One final note too, is that there’s plenty of additional Call of Duty for you if you happen to be at Gamescom this week.

Fans who can’t wait to get their hands on the latest Modern Warfare exclusive apparel, snapback caps, steins, collectible items and accessories can check out the following locations: for pre-order, the EMP Booth (Retail Hall 5.2, Booth B041) and the Activision Merchandise Store (Game Legends Booth) (Retail Hall 5.2, Stand C029).
