The worldwide-expected trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 has been officially released by Activision, to the excitement of the game’s fans. The trailer gives us an insight into the ultra-realistic scenarios that will be featured in the game, that are highly in vogue at the moment throughout the gaming world.
Controversial Political Aspects
Due to political aspects sparkled in the trailer, its release is highly controversial. The users will surely identify some similarities with Modern Warfare 2. In that part, players had to shoot citizens roaming around Moscow airport, thus taking part in the well-known mission called “No Russian”. Understandably, some of the states have even completely taken out the campaign before the final release.
The developer of the franchise, Infinity Ward has taken this as an opportunity to present the situation from a twisted point of view, presenting the terrorist perspective, a move that was also highly controversial. Up to this date, whether this was a good decision or not is thoroughly debated by users.
Players already dubbed this new chapter as “No Russian: The game”.
The Reality of War
Jacob Minkoff, single-player design director, stated that if the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 reboot will keep on showing a world where terrorists are always defeated, not mentioning the collateral victims or the other such aspect, the users will never get an objective perspective of how the war actually is, and how hard is this experience for a soldier, for say, from an ethical perspective.
Minkoff and its team undoubtedly done their thorough research, but is this kind of a research enough to assess the exact aspects of reality of war? Out there it is really hard to label who is the hero and who is the terrorist. There is no black or white, and there are moral principles being violated on both sides.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 to come out in October
Since September of 2018, when investors basically hammered the stock of Activision, shares suffered a decrease by roughly 50%.
Users all admit that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series was iconic and way ahead of its time, but the later releases in the series never quite lived up to the hype of the first game.
The strategy adopted by Activision is certainly trying to access popularity and success by emphasizing the shock factor for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The release date of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 reboot is expected to be October 25th.
