While the Call of Duty series has its roots in single-player campaign experiences, since 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the franchise has prioritized multiplayer more and more, to the point that some players don’t even bother playing the campaign, and some iterations of the series haven’t even had one. However, with 2022’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Infinity Ward successfully brought players to the single-player campaign by offering Campaign access a week early to anyone who pre-ordered the game. And it’s a solid experience, offering plenty of variety, and lots of gun-toting action.
