Busy this weekend? We here at RealSport would recommend clearing your schedule… only if you have a PlayStation 4 that is!

Just announced at Gamescom, PS4 owners will be able to get their hands on the 2v2 Gunfight game mode this Friday, 23rd August. The highly praised Gunfight mode will be a tonne of fun to get in and play with your mates. 

However, not only will this be a good log of feedback for Infinity Ward but will be a chance to see how their servers will handle the large influx of players bound to be playing this weekend.
