War rages on – but this time on the modern battlefield – in the fourth installment in the Call of Duty series. Russian utltra-nationalists have started a second Russian Civil War and have overthrown a Middle Eastern country to distract Western forces. Play as a United States Marine and a British SAS soldier in a series of intertwined missions that will take you from the burning sands of the Middle East to Azerbaijan, the Ukraine and Russia with the threat of nuclear weapons looming.
Take advantage of the latest in modern weapons and technology with night-vision goggles, man-portable anti-tank weapons and the ability to call in air-strikes on stubborn opponents. Pick up dropped weapons to stay in the action and recover laptops for intelligence on the enemy's plans. Take cover behind objects to survive, but keep on the move, as the enemy can destroy your sanctuary.
The heart of Call of Duty 4 is its proprietary game engine which features real-life and HDR lighting effects, dynamic shadows and depth of field for a realistically rendered war zone. Smarter bullet physics mean that your shots don't stop dead at a wall, but punch through depending on caliber and material. The multi-player modes include 16 maps and 13 different modes of play with the ability to call in UAVs for recon and helicopters for airstrikes. Up to 32 online players can take part in a single match. Lock and load!
