The upcoming “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” video game will have a new way to do battle: a two-player versus two-player mode called “Gunfight.”
Activision and Infinity Ward, its studio developing the game, unveiled the new close quarters mode in an exhibition contest hosted on Twitch on Thursday afternoon.
“Gunfight” pits duos against each other on small custom maps. If one team is not eliminated within the first 40 seconds, a flag is planted and the winner must get it.
Each team gets the same weaponry – from pistols to rocket launchers – and what you wield switches every two rounds. The first duo to six round wins is the victor.
“It is beautiful. It is intense and it is super fast-paced,” said Jordan “LEGIQN” Payton, one of the four streamers who played the game on Twitch. He teamed with Tom “ProSyndicate” Cassell against Jack ”CouRage” Dunlop and Tyler “TeePee” Polchow.
You can catch up on all the action on the “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” site.
Activision and Infinity Ward plan to reveal the rest of the game’s multiplayer offerings on Aug. 1 on Twitch.tv/CallofDuty.
In the meantime, you can catch up on what else we know about “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” including the the latest details about the game’s campaign and its reclamation of the “Modern Warfare” moniker.
“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” is due out Oct. 25 for PS4, Xbox One and PCs.
