At this point, the price progression is more or less ingrained into the holiday release schedule. The new Call of Duty comes out in October, and it costs $60. If you pay that $60, you’re mostly paying a moderate upcharge for a month of earlier play, because that price inevitably comes down with the impending Black Friday. Like I said, it’s usually a pretty moderate price drop, so many can justifiably pay the extra. But those that wait can typically afford at least one extra burrito with their savings, more depending on fixings. So if you’ve managed to be this patient this far, here are the best Black Friday deals on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Here’s where you want to look. Only Walmart is live right now, and for the rest you”ll need to wait:
GameStop: $38 (Thursday through Saturday)
Target: $45 (goes live November 28)
There are also console bundles, like this $299 PS4 Pro with the game. I feel like most people that badly want this game, or a PS4 Pro, already have one? If not, this is a decent way to go.
The game itself is a couple of things. The campaign is Call of Duty at its best, at least mechanically: this series has for years had a sense of pacing and action that few have ever been able to match, save maybe the odd Uncharted or Titanfall 2. That’s on full display here. Politically, it’s a little trickier: it attempts to take a “realistic” view of warfare, but it inevitably hamstrung by both being a video game and not actually wanting to do that. In one scene, for example, it assigns real US war crimes to Russians, showing the limits of what you can do with the subject matter while still trying to present American forces as essentially heroic.
The multiplayer is the main vent, however, and the multiplayer is both great and evolving. There should be a truly massive battle royale coming out soon, and everyone wants to know what’s up with that. Call of Duty always packs a ton into the box, even if you get the digital edition. This year’s game is no exception.
