Call of Duty Modern Warfare is the sixteenth overall installment in the Call of Duty series, it is a first-person shooter video game developed by Infinity Ward in 2019 and published by Activision. The game follows a CIA officer and British SAS forces as they team up with rebels from the fictional country of Urzikstan, combating together against Russian forces who have invaded the country.
The game’s Special Ops mode features cooperative play missions that follow up the campaign’s story and the multiplayer mode supports cross-platform multiplayer and cross-platform progression for the first time in the series.
Modern Warfare’s single-player campaign focuses on realism and feature tactically-based moral choices whereupon the player is evaluated and assigned a score at the end of each level; players have to quickly ascertain whether NPCs are a threat or not, such as a civilian woman who is believed to be reaching for a gun, but then simply grabs her baby from a crib. This collateral damage score, referred to as a threat assessment, is based on how many civilians the player injures or kills and ranges from rank A to F.
