Call of Duty Modern Warfare Countdown: Release date, Start Time, Servers, Price

The Call of Duty Modern Warfare countdown has begun, with the latest shooter in the series going live later tonight.

After a long wait, Activision and the developers at Infinity Ward are returning to their roots with an exciting new take on the Modern Warfare franchise.

In just a few hours, fans will be able to dive right into the action previously experienced in the games highly successful testing phases earlier this year.

Ahead of the big launch, we've summed up all the information you need to know before the game goes live on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

From start times to pre-downloads, it's all covered below, so read on.

What is the release date and start time for Call of Duty Modern Warfare?

Call of Duty Modern Warfare releases worldwide on Friday, October 25.

The game will go live in every region (except North America) at midnight local time . That means from the time of this post going live, you'll only have 18 hours to go before you can start playing.

However, it's also worth noting that players in North America will see the game launch a little earlier. Anyone lucky enough to live in the US of A will be able to start playing at 6PM Pacific / 8PM Central / 9PM Eastern on Thursday, October 24.

We don't know why, but lets hope it at least gives the multiplayer servers a better chance of not collapsing in on itself at launch.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare – Can you Pre-load the game right now?

If you bought the game digitally then you can already preload the game right now on PS4, Xbox One and PC via Battle.net.

The initial download will be around 65GB on PS4 and Xbox, with PC users looking at reportedly 175GB

So if you do want to play as soon as the game launches, get cracking on that download now to save yourself the hassle of doing it later.

Likewise, Charlie Intel have noted that the game may have two additional day one updates to download too, reported by those who managed to get a copy of the game on the street ahead of launch.

"Users who have gotten early copies and leaked copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare have suggested that there’s a 30GB download that first loads up, followed by a 57GB download in order to play the game." warned the Call of Duty news site.

"Regardless of what mode you want to play, these updates have to download in order to get access to the overall game"
