Highly anticipated upcoming game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is just hours away from release and gamers do not have to wait long to try out the new patches. As per statistical reports, this release will officially set the record for the biggest final release of COD in recent years with fans set to live stream their gameplay on twitch. The hype is really justified and very interesting.
Fans and gamers from around the world are already prepping for the reboot of one of the big-budget 2007 game by Infinity Ward that was attributed as a blockbuster back then. There is also a break-down of the information and details of the upcoming FPS released by Activision. The 2019 revamped game is set to release this Friday, the 25th of October on major platforms like PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, and Activision’s Sick Note release dates have already been revealed and gamers cannot wait to start their historic gameplay sessions. However, the expectation buildup regarding the release might be different from the actuality of it. The reason is a no-brainer. Because of a global release, there will be differences in time zones as well as pre-load times among other things. Pre-load times come with benefits of their own which directly helps gamers with the preparation even before the release.
The differences in time-release in various game engines and platforms are listed below:
Gamers who are looking to take it down on their PCs, there is good news. For all those who have pre-purchased the game, pre-installation is ready to hit the ground on Battle-net or blizzard as early as 22nd October from 10 am PDT. The exact release time will vary depending on the location and time zone differences. As per official timestamps, the launch time is 6 pm PTD and conversely, at 9 pm ETD later that day, 24th October.
For those following BST, the release timestamp is set at 2 am for 25th October. Other time zones will see the release at 4 am for MSK, 9 am for SGT, 3 am for CEST, 10 am for KST, so on and so forth. There is also a map available online to clear any uncertainty regarding the same.
PS4 and Xbox One
For the gaming consoles, the pre-installation was on the floor since last week. Hence, for all those who have already pre-purchased the game, installation can be done right away. However, even with the pre-ordered game, its life will go on air only at midnight around the globe on Friday, 25th October. There is also an exception with this set rule though; for everyone in North America, the release timestamp deviates a little from the rest of the world. There is release at 6 pm PDT or 9 pm EDT on the 24th of October.
If you are using digital copies on PS4 or Xbox One, you should inquire directly from the console dashboard to get notified regarding the exact launch timestamp in your respective location.
With just a few hours from the release of Modern Warfare, the most-anticipated game in recent times, excited fans who will be tied up at work during that time may have to go one step further to ensure they don’t miss this historic launch. Activision has come up with a solution but with a witty catch to it. The plan all depends on the company the employee is working for and the humor of who will be using it.
So here is what Activision went for: the approach is vaguely similar to the time of the release of Fallout 4. For those who are tied to their responsibilities at their respective jobs tomorrow, i.e. the launch day of Modern Warfare on 25th October, Activision has a way out for them too. They have come up with a release note addressed to the employee’s respective superior to cut them some slack on that day. A Twitter mage posted by the official account of Call of Duty UK released a template of the letter layered with humor.
Jokes apart, all players looking to make use of the letter should maintain corporate discretion although it might be a little different if the employer himself is a goofball. If permission is granted, well amazing, but if not, we highly advise not to misuse the letter just to skip work on that day.
It, however, is for the player to decide how to manage his time.
