Activision once again confirms a “full” premium Call of Duty game is coming later this year

Activision has reiterated that it will not, in fact, end the year without a full Call of Duty release. Despite reports to the contrary, Activision is moving ahead with the usual plan to release a premium, “full” Call of Duty game this year. Although the publisher revealed practically zero information about the game, it did confirm that it’s happening. As part of Avtivision’s Q1 2023 financial results, the publisher said to expect the game “later this year,” alongside Warzone Mobile. Some believe it did. Although we used to learn about the yearly Call of Duty releases by now or even…

Looks like we’re getting a Call of Duty in 2023 after all

What started out as a paid expansion for Modern Warfare 2 is now the next game. Activision will not skip out on shipping a premium Call of Duty game in 2023 as originally thought. This is according to a Bloomberg report which states Call of Duty 2023 will be “an extension” of Modern Warfare 2, per sources familiar with the matter. The game will reportedly bring over maps and modes from the current game; however, plans are also subject to change.

The RPS Selection Box: Hayden’s bonus games of the year 2022

These honourable mentions lists are a lovely little wrap up of games we couldn’t squeeze into the 2022 Advent Calendar, and mine is also a useful reminder that I didn’t just spend the entire year playing Elden Ring. Lots of time was spent as a lowly tarnished, getting smacked around by big fucken madlads with a dragon for an arm, sure. But I also got lost in a thrilling narrative adventure, laughed at flatulent renditions of our national anthem, swept up loot in Al Mazrah, and became enamoured with a lil gator. Here’s to 2022, everyone. Read more

Modern Warfare 2 suplexes Christmas with festive multiplayer makeover

Shipmas arrives in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 tomorrow, with the game’s Christmas update for multiplayer. The reimagined version of the classic Shipment map – introduced with last week’s Season 01 Reloaded midseason update – will be festooned with decorations, along with the bodies of your enemies. COD now has its own Santa, too, and I wouldn’t want to tangle with him. You can see what I mean, and catch a glimpse of the holiday version of Shipment, by watching the trailer below. Read more

Warzone 2.0 gets a temporary Rocket League mode on Wednesday

Football may not have come home this year, but it is coming to Call Of Duty: Warzone 2.0. A limited-time mode introduced with Season 01 Reloaded’s launch on Wednesday will see two teams of three knocking a big football about on ATVs equipped with special pulse abilities, in classic Rocket League fashion. The developers are also bringing back Mini Royale, popping up a new building in the DMZ mode, and adding a new map to the multiplayer mode that you actually need to own Modern Warfare 2 for.

A Warzone 2.0 player has discovered a ridiculously simple infinite money glitch

Hopefully it’s just as simple to fix. When Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0’s new DMZ mode was announced, plenty of fans figured it would be good fun. Painted out to be Call of Duty’s take on Escape from Tarkov, a high pressure squad-based experience in which players compete against each other for loot, many players have walked away from the mode less than impressed. Catch the launch trailer for Warzone 2.0 here. However, one recent exploit might coax players back into DMZ. First reported by GameRant, a player has found a basic glitch to replicate that can bag them hundreds…

Modern Warfare 2 is the best Call of Duty multiplayer in years – and a great indication of things to come

Call of Duty has been on a bit of a downwards trend lately, but the latest Modern Warfare rights the series and suggests a bright future, too. Call of Duty has a lot of problems. Even in the last seven days, documents have been published that show the close link the series has with the US armed forces, suggesting the game is a big, military-industrial psyop designed to rescue the image of the US war machine and drive recruitment to its ranks. As if that’s not bad enough, the single-player portions of the games often whitewash US war crimes and…

Call Of Duty Warzone 2 review: a worthy successor

Not long ago I watched my Warzone Legacy, a two-minute-long compilation of my best stats from the first game, which included my K/D ratio and hours played and the like. It was undoubtedly produced by AI to feed the social media machine, yet the cold, hard numbers transported me back to the warm embrace of Verdansk, a battle royale map my mates and escaped to almost every evening as the pandemic raged. The silly 120 second video shot me right in the feelings. My history with the first game means that I enter Warzone 2 with an embarrassing tangle of…

The Cha Cha Slide arrives in Warzone 2

Warzone 2 is many things: battle royale, free-to-play, chock-full of guns. One thing I hadn’t thought of it as, at least until now, was a dance simulator, but then I’ve never used Tiktok. A cunning Warzone 2 player has managed to convince the enemy team to abandon their hostilities and indulge in a spot of shuffling to DJ Casper’s classic turn of the millennium hit Cha Cha Slide. It’s an odd choice, particularly considering they’re jumping around in a cemetery, but each to their own. Read more

Modern Warfare 2’s wide-open map design is great for FPS grandpas like me

For someone tired of MOBA-like map design in modern FPS titles, Infinity Ward’s penchant for open areas and secondary routes in Modern Warfare 2 is perfect. As someone who loved the entirety of 2019’s Modern Warfare reboot, I’m sad to say that, against expectations, I found the MW2 campaign to be largely underwhelming. But its multiplayer – launch woes aside – is the most fun I’ve had playing Call of Duty in ages. The campaign certainly tries to do new things. I could draft an entire article about how the gunplay has never felt better, or how Infinity Ward has…
