Gamescom 2023 Debuts Campaign Gameplay and Multiplayer Beta Dates for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III

It’s time for another prison break. With Gamescom running on all cylinders, the Call of Duty team dropped by to give a sneak peek into an early campaign mission, Operation 627. The action was mostly tactical with our team infiltrating a compound to break out someone important. While the gameplay ended with that individual remaining hidden, the overall preview looked clean as ever. Additionally, the annual Call of Duty Next Event is happening on October 5, with the Multiplayer Beta launching on October 6. Stay tuned to Gaming Trend as we will be covering everything Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III in the months leading up to its release!
