i think mogadishu or darfur would be more fun than the middle-east
Oh, they'd get into deep trouble for setting a game in Darfur...to many sensitive issues there, Since if a war broke out in Darfur, the attrocities would be horrendous. It'll probably be in more than one theatre of war. Eastern Europe or maybe russia and the Middle East are definately going to be in the game. There was Both Arabic and Russian in the Trailer. Game looks way too cool though. But it seems it'll be one of those pro-"War on Terrorism" kinda games.
Listed below are several gameplay features that may be included in the new Call of Duty game when it is released.
On-Line Cooperative Play: Play the single-player missions as a team with up to 3 on-line friends.
Helicopter Gameplay: Dominate the battlefield from above by piloting a Cobra attack helicopter. Race into combat onboard the latest in modern military helicopters piloted by both AI and the player, and annihilate the enemy using rockets, missiles and chain guns.
Variety of Challenging Mission Objectives: Rescue captured hostages, photograph dead bodies to identify targets, infiltrate enemy positions, rescue downed allies in enemy territory, and many more.
Modern Battlefield Technology: Your soldier's heads up display features a satellite GPS, which displays -in real time - the true lay of the land. You'll be able to see terrain, enemies, and objectives all at a glance within your GPS display.
Split Screen Multiplayer: Play splitscreen with up to three of your friends to join games over system link or Xbox live. A team on your couch can play a team anywhere across the world.
Online match making: Jump straight into an online game with your friends without having to navigate a complicated server browser. At any time, you're only one click away from an intense online modern day battle.
D-Day on the Modern Battlefield: Watch as your armada of helicopters charges over the rooftops of a bombed-out urban hell, while ground fire and RPGs streak past the open door of your helicopter. Fast-rope down to the streets through a cyclone of choking sand and dust with your Marine platoon and engage the enemy in unrelenting battle.
Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment: Your experience will be heart-pounding and intense regardless of your initial skill level or experience. The level of challenge dynamically adjusts during the game to your game style and ability as you play. Just when you think you're outsmarting your enemies, they'll surprise you by improving their own tactics. There will be a veteran mode where you can force the game to stay extremely difficult.
Objective-based multiplayer: Capture and hold strategic hardpoints in each map to give your team the edge. Survey the area with satellite radar, re-supply your men with fresh ammo, and bomb your enemy off the map using tactical artillery strikes.
Next-Generation Multiplayer Battlefield: Physically alter the environment to your strategic advantage. Open up new flanking routes by blowing through walls and doors. Knock down bridges, close off roads, and blast buildings into rubble. Chuck a demolition pack in the window and take cover as a shower of debris and shrapnel comes flying out followed by the frantic screams of your foes. Move furniture and vehicles to block doors and seal up windows with chicken wire to repel enemy grenades.
Ambient Life: The battlefield becomes more real as animals with their own AI exist in the game where they would in reality. As you storm the apartment building dogs are barking, some get loose and run away, some might attack. Your convoy is blocked by a herd of sheep crossing the road. The farmland has cows that react to the battle. If the birds are in the trees you know there has been no firing recently.
Split-Screen Cooperative Play: Play the single-player missions as a team with a friend on the same couch.
Global War: Take the fight to the enemy in an epic war across the Middle East, board and storm ships in the North Atlantic, engage in heavy urban combat through the streets of Eastern Europe, and assault terrorist cells in London.
Persistent Stat Tracking: As you compete with your friends, you'll rise in rank and unlock over 50 new weapons and pieces of equipment including armor, explosives, and new grenade load outs. These stats are tracked persistently via online servers.
Cutting Edge Modern Arsenal: With the help of actual Marines and SAS operatives, all of the weapons in this new Call of Duty game have been painstakingly researched and replicated in game, bringing to life the ultimate war experience. Go into battle equipped with the latest generation of assault rifles and tactical explosives, including .50 caliber sniper rifles, M-249 SAW machine guns, Claymore mines, laser sights for your rifle or submachine gun, flashbang grenades, and automatic grenade launchers. Own the night, using thermal and night vision goggles to hunt down the enemy through smoke, sand, dust and darkness.
Upgradeable Weapons: In multiplayer, upgrade your weapons by adding attachments such as scopes, laser sights and larger ammo magazines. Customizable camouflage schemes allow you to blend into the background and become that much more deadly.
Downloadable Content: For a small fee, download new maps to expand the battlefield, weapons to increase your arsenal, and achievements to extend the challenge.
Combat from the skies: In modern warfare, you command the air support. Laser paint strategic targets for strikes from F-16s, A-10s and Longbows. Coordinate attacks with your Marine Air Support units - if the situation gets too hot, call in the Cobras and Harriers to suppress enemy positions, eliminate hostile tanks, or simply level entire buildings.
Destructible Environments: In multiplayer, blow through walls and cover using high-caliber weaponry. You'll open up new flanking routes by blasting through walls and doors, and destroy buildings and bridges to halt enemy movement.
Advanced Hostage AI: Face the challenge of rescuing hostages from enemies that will use them as human shields. Test your precision and nerve by taking out the enemies before they can eliminate the innocents.
Customize your loadout: In multiplayer, choose your characters weapon and gear loadout to suit different types of engagements. For covert operations, you'll need night vision and dark clothing, but for a daytime assault, you'll want to load up on extra body armor and as much ammo as you can carry.
AC-130 Gunship: Rain death from above at the gunnery controls of AC-130 Gunship flying high above the ground. Utilize night vision and thermal imaging as you attack with advanced weapons such as 40mm cannons and 25mm Gatling guns that can fire up to 1,800 rounds per minute. Take out enemy targets from so far away that they cannot see you.
Interconnected Storyline: Be drawn into a story of global conflict and epic confrontation from the Mid-East to European Cities and the Steppes of Russia. All of the missions are tied together in one overarching storyline and seamless connect through game play with no load screens.
Living Battlefield: The battlefield changes around you as you fight through each hotspot. Dust, smoke, debris and fire will obscure your vision and create an unprecedented sense of depth in the environment.
Truly authentic battlefield: Civilians live in the world and the rules of engagement are in effect. A family evacuates their home as firing breaks out, trying to get to their car, but is gunned down by enemy fire. You hear a noise in the room ahead, but you can't just throw a grenade first if their might be civilians.
Elite Mercenaries: Do battle against highly trained, highly organized enemy soldiers. Match your skills, and the skills of your comrades, against battle-hardened professionals such as ex-Spetznaz mercenaries. For instance, while you cover the door and window they could flank behind the building and use C4 to blow a hole in the wall and charge your position.
High Speed Tactics: Experience intense close-quarters urban combat in the way that only Call of Duty can deliver. Supported by your well-trained squad, rappel down the walls of enemy strongholds, blast out the locks with your shotgun, and then clear the rooms using tear gas grenades, flashbangs, and silenced MP-5 submachine guns.

IGN Preview "Its like Rainbox Six with chest hair"
No one was quite sure what to expect from Call of Duty's move to Modern Warfare. For those who were worried Infinity Ward would somehow lose its magic, relax. While the switch to a modern setting changes some aspects of the series, those changes appear for the better. Modern Warfare lets you feel the rattle of a machinegun in your hands and hear the frenzy of war at a higher fidelity than previous CODs.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has shot its way towards the top of our most anticipated games of the year.
More impressive is that all of this works in a frantic environment. The chaos of modern warfare has AI Marines screaming ooh-rah as gunfire echoes through the ruins of a Middle Eastern city. There are explosions left and right, enemies around every corner, helicopters spinning out of control and crashing in a fiery wreck. And all of it happens at 60 frames per second. It's fair to say that what we saw of Call of Duty 4 was a greater graphical feat than Epic's Gears of War. The trailer released in April was in-game footage and not some CG magic. The screenshots posted are, in fact, exactly what the game looks like. It's not a trick; Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare really looks that good.
Crap this is also entering must buy list .......
