Chris Wray from Wccftech had much praise for his hands on experience with the multiplayer:
It’s this mode, following a short test of the RTX features, which I got to play. Before we talk about the actual gameplay, I want to say a little about RTX. It’s brilliant. I’ve seen it in action, live, on a few titles this week and when utilised correctly, it truly can be a game-changer on the aesthetic side of things. Little aspects that one wouldn’t normally pay much attention to, like shell casings on the floor, now have more of a depth and feel to them as the game actually shows their shadows. Reflections in water show so much more of the world which, before, for all intents and purposes didn’t exist since you weren’t looking at it. Colour me impressed, then reflect me with you RTX magic, Modern Warfare.
Lets see if the finished product can live upto it.
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2v2 Gunfight Open Alpha is exclusive to PS4 and will run from August 23 at 10AM PT and end on August 25. A specific end time for this has not been announced.
