Activision's announced the reveal today after the world premiere of the two-vs-two multiplayer game mode, Gunfight. "First duo to reach the round win limit is victorious".

A glimpse at cross-play is also in the pipeline, which will enable players to compete against one another in multiplayer matches across all platforms, vastly expanding the connected CoD community. In the case of a tie, there will be an "overtime" round where a flag appears on the map, and players will either have to capture it or defeat the other team within 10 seconds.

We had a chance to play Gunfight last month during Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare preview event, and the mode was impressive. Thus, it's a mode that's all about outsmarting and outplaying your opponents with your skills, rather than your weapons.

Activision showed the first three maps for Gunfight: a warehouse called King, a dense forest called Pine and a desert container yard called Stack. During a match, teams will switch sides on the map every two rounds to keep things fair. And since rounds are all over within about a minute, battles become just as much about mind games as about covering your teammate. The mode is an excellent reminder of what gives Call of Duty's multiplayer its lasting popularity.

The First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon tweeted that it was "shameful" the diplomat had "effectively been forced out ". By resigning, Sir Kim clearly wanted to put an end to an extraordinary chapter in the so-called special relationship.

With its new progression system, meanwhile, you'll be able to work towards unlocking and levelling up weapons, earning new killstreaks, and gaining XP towards Prestige across the single-player campaign and other modes.

Tune-in August 1st to Twitch.tv/CallofDuty for the full reveal of the Modern Warfare Multiplayer Universe and deep look at gameplay coming to fans at launch.

As mentioned yesterday, a bunch of Twitch influencers are going to be blowing the lid off Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer gameplay with a livestream of the shooter's brand new mode called Gunfight.
