Published

on

One of the changes with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare having Crossplay support is that players are required to have an Activision and Call of Duty account in order to play the game.

If you played the Modern Warfare beta, you should have already had a Activision account registered and created in order to play the game then. That same account will let you play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at launch if you’re buying the game this week.

Here’s how to create an Activision account on Call of Duty website:

Visit the Call of Duty website and then hit Login | Sign Up on the website in the top nav bar. From there, enter the required information and link your PlayStation, Xbox, and PC accounts in order to support crossplay and cross progression.

Activision Support provides for info on how to sign up and log in to the Activision Account directly from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game when it launches. Creating and registering online will save time to ensure you are set to play when the game is available.

Activision Support also provides details on how to change your Activision Display ID in game to match what you want it to match. The Activision Display ID can be different than your platform ID.

From Activision Support:

Signing Up

The Account Creation screen requires you to enter a Display Name, a valid email address, and a password. You will also need to set your region and decide whether to receive marketing emails before confirming your account.

After accepting the Call of Duty Account Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, your account registration will complete and your Account Summary will display.

Note that the Account Summary includes your Activision ID, which is the name that you will appear as in game.

Logging In

If you already have an Activision/Call of Duty account, simply enter your email address and password. After logging in, your Account Summary will display.

Note that the Account Summary includes your Activision ID, which is the name that you will appear as in game.

Activision ID

After signing up or logging in, you’ll see that your Activision ID includes a hash mark followed by a series of numbers (ex: DisplayName#1234567). This number is unique to your Activision/Call of Duty account and allows players with the same Gamertag, PSN ID, or BattleTag to keep their names while differentiating them in game. The number also makes account creation easier, eliminating the need to see if a name is available.

Changing your Display Name

The in-game Change Display Name feature is not enabled in the Beta. However, you can change your Display Name online.

  1. Log in to your Activision/Call of Duty account.
  2. Select BASIC INFO.
  3. Select EDIT next to your ACTIVISION ID and enter your desired Display Name.

Modern Warfare players furious as new update makes graphics even worse

Issues with Modern Warfare’s graphics are leaving players furious as they look to enjoy the game ahead of MW2.

With Modern Warfare 2 on the horizon, players have gone back to experience everything Modern Warfare has to offer, but graphics issues are resulting in a frustrating ordeal.

Both Cold War and Vanguard arrived after 2019’s Modern Warfare, yet players continue to enjoy the Infinity Ward-developed Call of Duty title. The game is beloved by fans of the franchise and many are flocking back to Modern Warfare ahead of Modern Warfare 2‘s October 28 release date.

Unfortunately, the quality of the game has taken a major dip with recent updates practically breaking Modern Warfare’s graphics. Not only are players furious with the storage demands of these recent updates, but they’re not pleased with the visual issues that have appeared.

In case you missed it, Modern Warfare 2 will be the Infinity Ward-developed direct sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. In an attempt to get a taste of what’s ahead, players have returned to Modern Warfare as the style of play and feel will be similar to Modern Warfare 2.

Previously, issues have been plaguing PlayStation 5 players as the game was rendered unplayable. Fans of the game called out the lack of dev support for the title. Although it’s only natural that the devs focus on delivering a polished Modern Warfare 2 experience, players are disappointed with the current state of Modern Warfare.

Players were shocked by the continued updates for the game that came with a massive download size. In addition, it seems the graphic issues that have appeared as a result of the updates are having a negative impact on players’ perception of MW2: “This just made me not want to purchase mw2.”

Some players questioned if the game was beyond repair at this point with comments like, “this looks like things just got deleted to me, unplayable,” and “another update that further destabilizes the matrix.”

While it is understandable that the devs prioritize the new title, one player suggests that these issues could lead to the poor perception of MW2: “I gotta say, this event is giving a more negative feedback response from the community.”

It’s unfortunate that CoD fans are unable to enjoy the game to build hype for MW2. With the devs focused on the new title, most players agreed that the state of Modern Warfare would not improve, but we’ll keep you posted if it does.

Modern Warfare players slam state of “unplayable” game on PS5

Modern Warfare players have hit out at the condition of the game on PS5, after visual issues have left the game “unplayable.”

Modern Warfare players have hit out at the current condition of the game on PS5, after visual issues and glitches have left the 2019 CoD title “unplayable.”

Despite being nearly three years old, 2019’s Modern Warfare has still retained a healthy player count. With Vanguard failing to make a big impact with the community, those looking for an alternative to Warzone have flocked back to Infinity Ward’s last release.

However, since Modern Warfare is no longer the main focus of the devs, who are gearing up for Modern Warfare 2 later in 2022, fans have been growing frustrated with the condition the game is in.

A number of bugs and glitches have cropped up, and the game appears to be completely broken on PlayStation 5.

Reddit user BchLasagna uploaded a clip on August 7 simply titled: “The state of Modern Warfare on PS5.” It showed the beginning of a Ground War match on Krovnik Farmland, but the map was unrecognizable due to severe visual issues.

Textures on many of the map’s key features had failed to load in, leaving the game looking like a mess. The ground had no grass or detail on it, while trees were replaced with floating blobs of green and brown.

The Redditor added that it “stayed like this the entire game,” ruining the match for everyone in the lobby.

Other players on PS5 have reported similar issues, while some claimed it was actually affecting gameplay. “It’s not even just a visual issue, you sink into the ground and can’t see anything. Makes it unplayable basically,” said Ram5673.

Meanwhile, many replies called out the devs for allowing Modern Warfare to reach this state, especially since the game worked fine when it was the current CoD release. “This game has been crapped all over by the devs. It comes very low on their priorities,” replied Zimifrein.

It’s no surprise that with Modern Warfare 2 set to drop very soon, Infinity Ward’s focus is mostly on the sequel. However, the players that still enjoy Modern Warfare regularly will be hoping to see the problems on PS5 solved sooner rather than later.

Modern Warfare players are frustrated with a strange glitch that prevents textures from loading, but luckily there’s a way for you to get around this problem.

It’s fun to hop into a game of Modern Warfare and challenge your enemies for supremacy on the battlefield, but players’ enjoyment of the game can be quickly ruined by strange glitches that pop up.

One issue that’s plaguing Modern Warfare players is a glitch that causes the game’s textures to not load properly. While this can be frustrating, there’s a simple trick that will let you fix the problem.

How to fix Modern Warfare textures not loading glitch

Reddit user ‘swoelie’ shared a screengrab in the Modern Warfare subreddit, and the image showed that the textures on the map’s ground didn’t properly load in. This problem is commonly faced by PS5 users.

One of the commenters then shared a solution to this problem, and it involves the On-demand Texture Streaming feature that allows you to stream higher resolution textures when playing Modern Warfare.

Here’s how you can fix the textures not loading glitch:

  1. Open Settings in Modern Warfare
  2. Go to the General tab
  3. Select Details & Textures
  4. Enable On-demand Texture Streaming
  5. Start a match
  6. Quit the game
  7. Disable On-demand Texture Streaming

The user made it clear that it doesn’t matter if your on-demand textures are already on or off, just follow these steps and your textures will load properly on your PS5 when you hop back into a match.

In the replies, other commenters reported that this method has been successful for them, and it’s one you should try out until the developers implement an official fix. However, if you turn off the game then you’ll have to do this again.
