CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 2v2 Alpha Now Available For Preload on PS4; New Maps Detailed

With the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2v2 Alpha set to go live on Friday, Activision is giving PlayStation 4 owners a chance at a head start by allowing them to preload ahead of launch.

As of right now, PS4 owners worldwide can download the free Alpha so that they can jump in the moment it goes live on Friday. As a reminder the Alpha officially begins at 10:00 a.m. PDT on Friday, August 23, and requires no pre-orders or any special actions.

As previously detailed, the 2v2 mode in Modern Warfare is officially called Gunfight. The objective of this four-player, two-versus-two multiplayer match is simple: eliminate the oppositing duo. The catch is that every player is equipped with the same loadout that changes every two rounds along with team spawns. A timed match, if neither team is defeated within the limit, then a 10-second capture-the-flag overtime is introduced. If there's still no winner at the end of overtime, then one is determined based on whichever team has the highest combined health. The round can end in a draw if both teams have the same exact health. The first team to win six rounds wins the match.

Activision also revealed the details of the five playable maps, two of which are available exclusively in the 2v2 Alpha and never before seen publicly.

"Despite their size, these five locales still have an array of beauty, detail and, most importantly for those wanting to win the fight, tactical structure. These maps’ layouts create a variety of engagement opportunities, are custom fit for the frenetic pace and random loadouts that the 2v2 Alpha provides."


Docks (2V2 Alpha Exclusive)



A London shipyard with vessels travelling along the river behind one team’s infil point, with the other team spawning in street-side due west. Buildings 51 – the Foreman’s office – and 52 – the crew’s quarters – are two-story brick structures that define the map’s north and south, with a bridge connecting the two over a concrete walkway. The walkway under the bridge’s center – which also sits over a concrete waterway running east to west – serves as the overtime flag’s location.


King



A roughly-symmetrical training range warehouse with each player starting behind an L-shaped defensive structure made from sections of wood subfloor. Along the perimeter are two connected metal shipping containers (with “Shoot House” sprayed on each one), offering protection, but no clear line of sight. The center of the map is a half-constructed plywood stage with stairs at each end, crates to climb, and a concrete base with three small tunnels to traverse. The flag spawns in the center tunnel.


Pine



A woodland training range with working metal targets beyond the perimeter, and a small grassy area from the infil point. The eastern infil point is a firing range, while the western infil point is a bunker entrance. Each perimeter area leads to a rocky outcrop and a rusting vehicle to navigate or hide behind, and a raised, tarp-draped command post on the southern side. A stream bisects the map, running southwest to northeast, with an open red container where the flag appears.

Speedball (2v2 Alpha Exclusive)


 
A live firing range that is true to its name through its style. Containers, tire stacks, concrete slabs and wooden structures act as cover between the two squads that infil on opposite sides east and west. The overtime flag appears near the map’s southern portion, smack in the middle of two containers, dueling small towers and the central concrete-reinforced wood wall.

Stack



A desert training range, with both teams starting on a raised balcony (one with an overhang), each with two ramps; one at either perimeter edge. The side paths each have sand-filled buttress crates and tire stacks, and both widen slightly in the middle. The center of Stack is a raised platform, with plywood stairs (one at each corner), and an open container where the flag spawns.

A planned beta for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be offered next month and will eventually roll out on all platforms. Check out the details here.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is slated to launch on October 25, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
