Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered differs from newer installments of the Call of Duty series. Recent Call of Duty games have taken place in the future and have only one main protagonist, while Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has a more film-like plot with interlaced story lines from the perspectives of Sgt. Paul Jackson of the Marines 1st Force Recon and Sgt. John ‘Soap’ MacTavish of the British 22nd SAS Regiment. There is also a variety of missions where players control other characters, such as an unidentified AC-130 gunship operator and Lieutenant John Price in a flashback assassination mission set in Pripyat, Ukraine. The modern warfare style introduced a variety of conventional weapons and technologies to the Call of Duty series, such as assault rifles, night vision, .50 caliber sniper rifles, and C4 plastic explosives.
