Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will attempt to recreate the emotion of war when it fires its way on to consoles as Infinity Ward focus their attention on the game’s realism.
This means the story will be crafted in a way that prompts you to question your decisions, and even feel regretful over the choices you make. Just as if you were in the field for real and reacting to the world around you – we’re talking split second decisions as events unfold.
As a result of this new found emphasis, civilian fatalities at your hands will no longer be penalised by ‘mission failed’. Instead, you will have to play on and accept the judgement of your squad. That’s because the world will react to your actions so better get your eyes checked.
But it wouldn’t be realistic if you could go around, taking out the innocent, and just get a cold shoulder from your comrades. So the developers have added a grading system that will present you a letter mark between A and F, depending on how careful you were with your kills. A running theme, we assume.
Jacob Minkoff, gameplay director said:
“Obviously, we’re trying to make things much more realistic, much more visceral this time, so that if you kill a single civilian you feel bad, because you might see a woman go for a gun but instead she’s going to grab her baby.
“We want you to feel bad, and the characters around you will respond and react to what you did, too”.
So, it sounds as though we’ll be emotional wrecks by the end of it; where did I put my camouflage tissues?
Are you ready for the rollercoaster of a ride Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has planned for us? Or is this one deployment too far for you?
