Meet the Player Protesting Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Violence by Playing as a Pacifist

[quads id=10] Kent Sheely was laying on the edge of an abandoned hotel rooftop: frozen, anxious, and ready. He was waiting for his target, Russian arms dealer and revolutionary Imran Zakhaev, in the nuclear remnants of Pripyat.

In November, the whole Black Market system that housed its microtransactions was overhauled so that players could grind for items and not pay a cent—but it…

Modern Warfare’s Narrative Director Responds to Criticism Over Highway of Death Reference: “This Is Not Some Kind of Propaganda”

Got a news tip? Is there something you think we should be reporting on? Email news@usgamer.net. Prior to its launch, Infinity Ward’s developers spoke openly about how Call of Duty: Modern Warfare draws inspiration for its story from real-world conflicts, and talked about how it would engage concepts of modern war more seriously.
