Call of Duty is one of those games that really doesn't need much of an introduction. For over a decade, the Call of Duty franchise has been a literal household name. It's easy to forget, in this modern Fortnite-ruled world, that Activision's annual military shooter is regularly a top selling title each year. Is it even possible to recreate a game that had the streets talking like Black Ops 2 did back in 2012? Infinity Ward is going to try with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
It never feels like it from our perspective here in North America, but gamescom is the world's biggest gaming convention. Attendance averages in the few hundred thousands yearly, dwarfing E3 by multiple times. It's Euro-centricity tends to motivate publishers and developers from the surrounding area to make bigger splashes there. Between August 20th and 24th of this year, we will have out eyes and ears open for the oncoming deluge of game info pouring out of Cologne, Germany.
April had a plethora of great cinematic goodies for gamers. From debuts to updates, the world of game trailers was on fire. There were even a few surprise reveals that got everyone pretty pumped. Let's relive them together, eh?
