Gillie Suit and Juggernaut!
During E3 Coliseum 2019, the first in-game multiplayer screenshots were revealed for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
The first image shows a player in a full Gillie Suit, complete with a silenced sniper rifle. Infinity Ward’s new engine allows for dynamic cloth, so when the Gillie Suit moves, the rest of the suit will move realistically.
The character is also wearing a veil over his/her head, and as the character moves, so does every part of the clothing and suit.
The second image showed and teased the return of the Juggernaut suit and Special Ops to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Infinity Ward art director Joel Emslie also discussed he asked for, early on, heavy metal music to start playing as you near a Juggernaut, as the soldier inside chose it as his music of choice on the battlefield.
Other details were revealed during the panel, including that while some character are returning from 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, all the voice actors are new.
They also further discussed their new engine, that took over 5 years to create, which allows for such things as the caliber of a bullet determining how/if it can penetrate a wall and make it through.
While the first previews of the game discussed the smaller, more intense settings in Modern Warfare, they want fans to rest easy knowing that there are still larger scale sections of the campaign.
Speaking of the Campaign, you will play half of the story as Sgt. Kyle Garrick, a former British Army Officer who will work along returning character Cpt. Price, who will be a different character to the original but will honor what made him so memorable.
The second half will be centered around a CIA agent named Alex who embeds with local forces in the Middle East and is assigned to work with another Commander Farrah who is “a corollary of Cpt. Price.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released on October 25, 2019, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and will feature full cross-play across all platforms.
