Infinity Ward's new Call of Duty is indeed Modern Warfare, and it's a reboot that sets a grim and dark tone for the franchise.

Activision is making good on its promise to bring Call of Duty is back to its roots. The newly announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare brings back basic features like a solo singleplayer campaign that can be played entirely offline, as well as a new co-op mode and classic boots on the ground multiplayer. All modes will tie into a gripping narrative that spreads across the entire game--a narrative that's quite nerve-wracking.

"There's a fine line between right and wrong. And somewhere, in the shadows, they send us in to find it. We get dirty and the world stays clean. That's the mission," --John "Soap" MacTavish (yes, he's back).

The unsettling and brutal chaos of the series is back in full force. Previews say players will be faced with impossible situations, explosive violence, and haunting missions. The line between friend and foe is exceptionally blurred and gamers will be forced to shoot plainclothes insurgents and apparent civilians that threaten their lives.

The campaign is actually two-fold and isn't just from the perspective of the good guys. In fact, it's hard to tell which is which. One half of the story is told through the eyes of T1 Operators, and the other has players taken on the perspective of rebels fighting against the invaders. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a recipe for a distinctly memorable if not psyche-staining experience.
