Call of Duty Modern Warfare will contain intense violence and might not be available in NZ, DE, or SEA countries

  • The Call Of Duty series has had some pretty controversial moments throughout its various installments, but the latest Modern Warfare may be looking to push the envelope even further.

    We know that 2019's Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare will have a single story campaign, unlike Black Ops 4, but we haven’t really gotten much information on what the content of that campaign will be. Apparently one YouTuber was invited to Infinity Ward to see the game, and if his experience is anything to go by, Modern Warfare’s story might be pretty hecking nuts.

    Drift0r, who runs a popular channel on YouTube, got to see the next COD, and he tweeted this message out. According to him, the game is extremely violent, to the point that he wonders if it will even be available for purchase in certain countries where games with incredibly violent content are either banned, or heavily censored. There might even be a chance that the game will get an AO rating. Yikes.

    Infinity Ward isn’t playing with kid gloves when it comes to Modern Warfare. The violence is looking like it will be intense, and apparently women and children may even get involved. In fact, it looks like the game will even have a section involving child soldiers. Your character will be tasked with making difficult choices about who lives, and who dies, and it may get pretty uncomfortable.

    In the past we’ve seen moments like your character dying of radiation after a nuclear explosion, and of course there’s the “No Russian” level, a popular topic of discussion whenever the subject of controversial video game violence comes up. If Drift0r is right, and this year's Modern Warfare features scenes even more gory and disturbing than Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s most famous and memorable stage, then we might be hearing a lot about the latest COD on the evening news. Fox News anchors will probably throw a fit.

    Telling stories that could make gamers feel uncomfortable isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and in fact, it may be a good step forward if games are to be taken seriously as an art form. As long as the story told in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is told tastefully, and not just going for the shock factor, it could be a pretty poignant tale of the ugly side of war.

    We’ll find out just how violent Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare gets, when it launches on October 25, 2019, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
