Activision revealed yesterday that Call of Duty Modern Warfare will get a mutiplayer Realism Mode. This Realism Mode will target all fans of GRAW or other realistic shooters, and from the looks of it, it will be one of the best game modes.
Going into more details, there will be no hit makers or kill indicators/sounds in this mode. As such, players will know that their enemies are dead only if they see them dying. All headshots will be lethal and you’ll need only a few body shots in order to take down your enemies
What’s also really cool here is that, during night matches, you will be able to shoot lights for strategic purposes. Now this extra level of interactivity is something that will please a lot of players, so kudos to the developers.
Furthermore, gunplay and sound design will be completely overhauled for this particular mode. Also, and similarly to all other modes, the weapon handling and movement will be more realistic than the previous COD games.
In night matches, players will be able to equip their night vision goggles. However, and when equipped with them, they will not be able to use iron-sights. Without your night goggles, you will be able to use ADS (aiming down sights).
Below we’ve included some videos showcasing Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s Realism Mode. As a big fan of GRAW 2, I can see myself spending a lot of time in this mode. The fact that the game will also support cross-play means that there will be a lot of players in pretty much all available modes, so that’s a big plus.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases on October 25th!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
