Call of Duty Modern Warfare received a sizeable patch earlier today – it’s a whopping 20GB in fact – which brings in Spec Ops missions, two new multiplayer playlists, and many fixes and corrections asked for in the community. However, the Modern Warfare patch notes for the game’s update 1.09 reveal more than most players expected – as the notes seem to feature secret internal developer messages.

There’s more hiding in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s 118 GB install footprint than the public has seen, and a new datamine of the PC client’s contents suggests strongly that Modern Warfare will be getting a massive new battle royale mode at some point in the future.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches this week on PC, and pre-loads for Infinity Ward’s soft reboot are already underway. The developers have also provided a full list of release times for the game. It’ll be a single global launch – so no need to think about VPNing yourself into New Zealand or anything of the like – but that does mean you’re going to be playing Modern Warfare at a different time depending on where you are in the world.
Not long now! Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is due for release this coming Friday, October 25, but before you scurry off to Amazon or your purveyor of choice, you’ve a chance to win a PC copy of the game entirely for free, thanks to your favourite PC gaming news outlet. No, not PC Gamer – us. Mean.
Call of Duty fans have been looking cautiously toward the launch of Modern Warfare, as rumours suggested that the series’ loot boxes – called Supply Drops – would expand beyond cosmetic to include gameplay-affecting items like weapons.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will launch as an Nvidia RTX title on October 25, 2019, and publisher Activision says you can expect “high FPS” even with the demanding ray tracing rendering tech turned on at 4K. Sounds promising.
You won’t need to free up 175GB on your gaming PC to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at launch. Despite the recommended specs released earlier this week claiming to require vast bits and bytes to the grand total of 175GB, Activision’s David Hodgson says that the initial download will be smaller when the game launches on October 25, 2019.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s system requirements are now live on Battle.net. The next title in Activision’s famed franchise will launch on October 25, and if you want to be there on day one you best have – drumroll please – 175GB of disk space available for the game files. Crikey.
With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s release date fast approaching, news and rumours about what the game will bring are circulating, with some points – like its timed PlayStation 4 exclusive mode, Survival – confirmed, and others still a mystery. Now, developer Infinity Ward’s art director has posted about “A developer’s POV” on Reddit, calling for players to “focus” on facts about the game, and try to avoid “half-baked inflammatory rumours.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will mostly do away with the timed PlayStation 4-exclusive maps, modes that have been with the series for years, opening up post-launch content across platforms in service of the new cross-play features. But Activision’s partnership with Sony isn’t done yet – the “exciting day one advantage” the publisher mentioned in a blog last week has been unveiled alongside the new campaign trailer.
