Infinity Ward has revealed that the campaign for its new Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot is an emotional rollercoaster ride. In an interview with PCGamesN, campaign director Jacob Minkoff confirmed that playtesters have cried while going through the main storyline of the game. Clearly, Infinity Ward has succeeded in staying true to its original statement – if you thought you were as tough as nails, this game will force you to shed a tear.
The reboot aims to depict as many of the horrors and brutalities of war as possible and doesn’t shy away from any sensitive subject matters. Unsurprisingly, Minkoff didn’t reveal which missions were the leading cause of the mass crying that plagued the testers. However, it’s safe to assume that the child soldier mission depicting a nine-year-old girl is partially to blame – FYI, she goes around stabbing and shooting hordes of people, so that’s sure to spark some controversy.
Infinity Ward is pulling out all the stops to make an unforgettable campaign and gearing itself up to deliver more than just a game – every decision, every shot you take will have meaning and consequences. The game releases on 25 October this year, so make sure you get your wallet and a 1,000 boxes of tissues ready.
