New Call of Duty 3D ad sends shivers down the spine of Londoners

The famous shooter video game series unveiled a new chapter on October 28th. It is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II ! And for this release, the American video game publisher Activision intends to get noticed. He decides to dedicate a 3D billboard in the heart of London in order to attract the attention of gamers as it should.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II

In 2019, Activision presented the reboot of one of the games in the series Modern Warfare. It is then the 4th of this franchise. However, it does not follow any other game since it only uses the same iconic characters who made the success of call of duty to make a new story out of it. This year, and in the same spirit, Activision returns with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II which is also a reboot. It is then possible for nostalgic gamers to relive new experiences in the company of famous characters from the video game series.
