Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be unlike any of the previous instalments in the series. It aims to throw away the surreal aspects of something like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and instead represent the real and devastating world of modern warfare. With the following information in mind, it's safe to say, Infinity Ward won't be holding back.

A new report by Variety has revealed that the upcoming instalment in the first-person-shooter series will feature a section in which the player will take control of a child soldier. Child soldiers are of course a unfortunate and tragic part of real-world war.

The scene will see the player embody a young girl who stabs and shoots multiple Russian soldiers who are gassing innocent civilians. While it sounds as if this will only be a single, short portion of the game, it also sounds like one of the most intense and realistic scenes that the series has ever had.

Taylor Kurosaki said in the report that, with their aim being to represent modern warfare, child soldiers are something that they simply cannot ignore. “When we set out to make this project, we made it very simple for ourselves, what do the words modern warfare represent. What defines modern warfare for us, or what do we believe defines it in the world we live in in 2019?"

You are inherently taking on these sensitive topics today more than any other time. The battle lines are not really clearly defined. The warzone is not over there, somewhere in some remote corner of the world, it’s all around us. A busy city center can become a combat zone in a blink of an eye. For a Tier one operator, navigating that world is part and parcel with what we believe modern warfare to be.

“If we only talked about western soldiers fighting in far-flung lands or on domestic counter-terrorism in their homes that would also only tell you half the story. There is a whole group of people where the battle zones are their home and their cities.” The aim isn't to be provocative, Kurosaki said, but to show the realities of what warfare in modern day really looks like it. It's "serious business and it can be kind of messy."

The report also revealed that players can't just go around slaughtering children and innocents. There is a system in place to curtail them and, should they persist, they will simply kicked from the game. Much like what would happen to a real soldier, should they step beyond their line of duty.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set to release on October 25th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
