Developer Infinity Ward is heading up the next game in Activision’s blockbuster FPS series with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and the team at Beenox (who worked on Black Ops 4) is being called upon to take care of the PC version once again. More PC-specific details have come out, and gives us insight into graphics options, beta dates, and which service you’ll be able to play it on.
Like Black Ops 4, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s PC version will live on Battle.net. The platform that traditionally houses Blizzard’s games has branched off to support a few more Activision-published titles recently (though Destiny 2 will be taken off in September).
As far as graphics, PC players will have a bevy of options including an uncapped framerate, 21:9 ultrawide aspect ratio support (and multi-monitor support), HDR, and an FOV slider. Of course, keybinds are fully customizable along with “advanced mouse options,” though these options haven’t been fully detailed. And for those who have Nvidia RTX video cards, raytracing will be available.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will have a PlayStation 4 exclusive beta on September 12-13 (early access) and 14-16 (open). All platforms, including PC, will have a beta featuring crossplay on September 19-20 (early access) and 21-23 (open).
