[UPDATE] Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PS4-Exclusive Gunfight Alpha Now Available
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PS4-exclusive 2v2 Gunfight mode alpha is available now.
UPDATE: Infinity Ward and Activision decided to surprise avid Call of Duty fans by making the PS4 exclusive alpha start today, which is earlier than expected. You can download the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2v2 Gunfight alpha right now and jump right into some matches. The original story is as follows…
Activision and Infinity Ward recently announced that PS4 owners would be getting an exclusive alpha version of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2v2 Gunfight mode this week. That wait is almost over, as the alpha is now available for preload on the PlayStation Store. Players in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand can download the alpha right now, while players in Asia can do so in the next few hours. The alpha runs from Aug. 23 to Aug. 25 and doesn’t require PlayStation Plus.
Gunfight pits two teams of two against each other. Both teams are equipped with the same loadout that changes every two rounds–as do spawn locations. The objective is to simply take out the other team.
A flag spawns and a 10-second overtime begins if neither team is eliminated by the end of the time limit. The first team to wipe out the other or capture the flag wins. If this still ends in a stalemate, winners will be determined by the highest combined health between teammates. If both teams have the same health, it’s a draw. The first team to win six rounds takes the game.
Five maps will be available during the alpha: Docks, King, Pine, Speedball, and Stack. Docks and Speedball are exclusive to the alpha. Most of the maps, besides Docks, take place at a shooting range. Docks is set at a London shipyard, King in a warehouse, Pine in a forest, Speedball at what looks like a paintball course, and Stack in the desert. Overall, there seems to be a decent spread of wide-open areas and areas tightly packed with cover.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on Oct. 25, 2019. You can pre-order it on Amazon if you’re so inclined.
