The Open Beta phase for the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare begins on September 19th. And today, Infinity Ward announced that it will feature a brand new game mode. Ground War is a new warfare mode that will support up to 64 players (32v32).
As Infinity Ward stated via an email.
“On Saturday, September 21, during weekend two of the Beta, we’ll be taking your multiplayer experience to the next level. Taking place on a new map, Karst River Quarry, you’ll get your hands on 32v32 warfare in a new mode, Ground War.”
The open beta phase for COD: MW will also feature a 2v2 Gunfight mode and a 6v6 squad combat. Not only that, but it will support cross-play between all platforms. This is something that a lot of gamers will appreciate, and we are really looking forward to experiencing it.
As we’ve already stated, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be using Ray Tracing on the PC for enhancing its shadows. These ray tracing effects will be within both the single-player campaign and 2v2 Gunfight multiplayer mode. As such, PC gamers may get a taste of these RT effects in the upcoming open beta. Let’s not forget that this mode was shown with its Ray Tracing effects at Gamescom 2019. As such, its open beta build will most likely support them.
Lastly, it’s also worth mentioning that the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will have uncapped framerates, FOV slider, advanced mouse settings, will support HDR and will allow players to remap all keys.
