Modern Warfare plot developments that have occurred in Multiplayer Seasons and the Warzone
In 2005, Call of Duty 2 has been published with great success. Its campaign, in particular, was highly regarded for its incredible atmosphere and settings. The game’s narrative, while fairly simplistic by modern video game standards, was more than adequate for a mid-2000s WWII first-person shooter. But times have changed and the Modern audiences want more complex and interlocking narratives that aren’t limited to a short campaign mode.
With every movie studio in Hollywood trying to create their own Marvel Cinematic Universe, it would make sense for the gaming giants to want to do the same. Starting with Fortnite, large multiplayer games began to introduce seasons, where new weapons, skins, and maps would be added to the game, often accompanied by small cutscenes that would advance the lore or story of the game. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare did exactly that thing and left a lot of its history hidden in multiplayer and War zone rear channels.
The story so far
To understand the plot developments made in Modern waris multiplayer and War zone seasons, it’s worth having a quick reminder of the events of the game’s main campaign. The game opens in Verdansk, a place that many are familiar with. Central protagonist and player character, CIA agent Alex, is intercepted and the shipment of deadly chemicals he was carrying is stolen. It doesn’t take long before Captain Price of the SAS is recruited by the CIA to hunt down the chemicals.
Meanwhile, members of the Al-Qatala terrorist group stage a brutal attack on Piccadilly Circus in London, and Price and his team, containing the other player character Kyle Garrick, are dispatched to deal with the situation. The chemicals trail takes the team to Urzikstan, where Alex teams up with local guerrilla warrior Farah Karim, who joins the task force in agreement that they will help him overthrow the Russians in his home country if she does. finds the chemicals.
After a particularly brutal mission in a London townhouse, the SAS team is sent to search for a terrorist leader named “The Wolf”. In Urzikstan, Alex and his team of US Marines capture The Wolf, prompting his partner, known as “The Butcher”, to launch a counterattack against the US Embassy in the country. In an attempt to recapture the wolf, Farah takes Alex along the “Highway of Death” on a very memorable sniper mission. It is then revealed that Farah’s brother, Hadir, was the one who intercepted the shipment of chemicals in Verdansk. Hadir uses the chemicals to create a deadly gas, which he tests on Al-Qatala and Russian forces in the region.
As a result of this mission, an extended flashback plays out, showing the events of Farah and Hadir’s childhood. It is revealed that Farah and Hadir were captured as children after an attempt to flee the country following its Russian invasion. The two then spent the next ten years in a Russian prison, hatching their plan to one day fight. The flashback ends with a rescue mission, where Price brings the two out of the Russian prison.
Nowadays, Price and the team make their way to the Wolf’s hideout and eventually manage to get him out, but since he is no longer in possession of the chemical gas, the US government is forced to condemn Farah’s guerrilla movement which pushes Alex to quit the CIA and continue fighting with Farah’s rebels. With little to do, Price and his team meet a former Russian contact, Nikolai. With his help, Price’s task force manages to capture The Buther, and after a series of ruthless interrogations, he relents and tells the team that Hadir is going after Russian General Barkov in his own domain in Moldova.
Garrick and Price manage to intercept Hadir and learn that the Russian general has a factory that makes more deadly chemicals. All of the characters come together in the final mission to attack the Barkov Chemical Factory, with Alex seemingly sacrificing himself to blow up the complex. Farah cuts off Barkov’s escape and kills him, before running away with the rest of Price’s team.
The last moments of Modern warPrice’s campaign sees Price creating Task Force 141, the team he led in the original Modern war Games. The file seen at the end features fan favorite characters like Ghost and Soap, as well as that game’s player character Garrick.
