A new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare trailer arrives to celebrate launch

No, you’re not misreading the title. Activision has released a launch trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare even though it isn’t out until October 25th. As you can imagine the trailer is full of set-piece shots from the campaign with Captain Price getting a chunk of screentime. For a trailer titled “Launch Gameplay Trailer,” there isn’t any actual gameplay within the footage.

Just under a week ago there was confirmation that progress made in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will transfer between accounts as the data will be linked to an Activision ID and not the platform account. So, if you play on an Xbox One for example but want to switch over to PC you can and you’ll have all your multiplayer unlockables as well as other progressions.
