Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019 Gameplay: Ground War Game Mode Set In Huge Map With Over 64 Players


Information about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's Ground War game mode has been given some time in the limelight as GameInformer have started their exclusive coverage for their cover story this month.



GameInformer recently visited the Infinity Ward studio to experience this new and imrpoved take on a classic game mode within Call of Duty. There's no doubt that we may see a Modern Warfare 2019 beta focused on this mode to stress test its capability.

In the past Ground War has been capped at just 16 players total (with 8 on each team), however we know thanks to a press release from Activision that it will support more than 100 players; GameInformer have had the chance to play a version that included 64 players.


What Is Ground War Like In Modern Warfare 2019?

Upon playing the new Modern Warfare 2019 game mode, GameInformer described it to be similar to large-scale Battlefield style maps. The mode for the large map is Domination, but a 5-flag capture style. GameInformer also says that the map has “lots of open space, high sight-lines from key landmarks, and areas with sparse cover.”

The mode features many landmarks across the map with corridors and buildings for combat. Maps feature vehicles, choppers and more - “choppers fly by, smashing into buildings as whorls of infantry scatter and merge from cover on the streets below.”


"Choppers whiz by above while players spawn into secured locations and even APCs on the move, planning their next cap point. Cover is everywhere in the side alleys and between buildings, but watch yourself carefully if you’re planning to trek the spacious roads, as they provide little protection and can turn into everything from small scale-skirmishes on the fly around upturned cars to sniper massacres.


You’re incredibly exposed in these areas, so judicious use of smoke, fast movement from cover to cover, and working as incursion teams are all critical to success if you plan to spend any time on these expanses of concrete.

From mini-assaults into areas between towering buildings to huge team assaults on the bank, there’s a ton going on in Ground War and death comes swift as ever – there are no fixed classes like support or assault, instead, you can bring in any loadout that you can conjure up from any of the other standard multiplayer modes and change it as needed during the course of a war."
