It seems that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which will be released at the end of October, will offer players new opportunities to change the appearance of their characters, as well as previously unavailable custom items. The information was included in the book Making Call of Duty Modern Warfare by Andy McVitti, who has created art and graphic design for games such as Watch Dogs, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Titanfall 2. According to the book's sample pages presented by the publisher, the devs plan to offer players a choice of tattoos. Their projects can be seen on a sample graphics, which is also enriched with commentary.
Customization options are a crucial component of the multiplayer experience. [...] Our Combat Operators have a considerable amount of available variations and incarnations. For many of the alternates we like to include tattoos and other forms of body art. It's amazing to think that we went to this level of detail to render onto the character's skin.
We also learned the names and profiles of two combat operators, we will be able to control in multiplayer matches. The first one is Bale, armed to the teeth and wearing a standard military uniform with a vest and helmet, a Specnaz officer. The second revealed character is Syd. The book does not define which military formation she is supposed to represent, but it stresses that the presence of female characters on the battlefield is extremely important for developers and was preceded by an analysis of many available information on the subject in order to render their appearance and behavior as realistic as possible (movement animations, etc.). Finally, we would like to add that everyone interested in the new version of multiplayer will be able to check it during the open beta-tests, which will take place in several stages in the second half of September.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released on October 25 on PC (only via Battle.net), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
