Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II releases on Oct. 28 to gamers on every system. With the announcement of the new game and the beta coming in the next few days, we have news about some of the new modes added to the game.
Call of Duty had an event Thursday called Call of Duty: Next. During the event, Activision announced some pretty big pieces of news revolving around its multiplayer mode. One big piece of news came in the form of a brand new Raids game mode that will bring more strategy to Call of Duty than ever before.
Raids are a three-player cooperative mode requiring teamwork and strategy to help lead your team over your enemies. This intense combat mode brings more strategy and teamwork to Call of Duty than ever before, and I cannot wait to check out this three-v-three mode.
Now, this mode will not be available at launch, unfortunately. Players will certainly have to check this out when it does come to the game. While it is not available at launch, Raid is expected to come before the end of 2022, so we won’t have to wait too long to try out this new mode.
You can check out the trailer for multiplayer and Warzone below, there are some sneak peeks of new modes and features:
Adding Raid helps Call of Duty compete with other games like Destiny or Rainbow Six siege, each of which offers strategic modes like this.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II already looks like a strong competitive game and it hasn’t even launched yet. Pair that with the big updates the game will be getting after launch, and I think this has the potential to be one of the stronger Activision games to date.
The Open Beta for PlayStation users who pre-ordered begins tomorrow on Friday Sept. 16.
