POPULAR What operator are you!!!!!!!!!!!
Pre-orders for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare are now available! You have a few different editions to choose from (both Digital and Physical) and we’ll break down what’s in each Edition so you’re not left in the dark.
In the new Modern Warfare, you’ll have the opportunity to choose and express yourself as a number of diverse and named Operators. Rather than special abilities that affect gameplay, each offers their own backstory, nationality, character dialogue, character skins and cosmetic customization options.
As you can tell from the adjacent images, the three Operator Packs you receive as part of the Operator Edition or Operator Enhanced Edition allow you to wear three themed Operator skins and utilize three cosmetic weapon variants.
POPULAR Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will have console-PC crossplay,
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward’s re-imagining of its modern military shooter franchise, will have two very big changes: This year’s game will feature cross-play support for multiplayer on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One, and won’t have a “traditional season pass.”
Also, the team is eliminating the traditional season pass, so that they can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players.”
While cross-platform multiplay has become increasingly common, thanks to games like Rocket League, Fortnite, and Dauntless, a franchise like Call of Duty adopting multi-platform play is a major milestone for competitive gaming.
Activision has long supplemented the Call of Duty games with a paid season pass, which has typically cost about $50 and usually offers exclusive early access to one console platform (originally Xbox, recently PlayStation). Despite cross-platform play and hopes to “unite the community” with post-release content, it looks like there will still be platform exclusives. A version of the game’s reveal trailer reveals that “new content” will come first to PlayStation 4.
Activision didn’t say how it will supplement the lack of a season pass with some other form of monetization, but Call of Duty games have long had other forms of microtransactions for players to spend their money on.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released on Oct. 25.
Update: This story has been updated with information on PS4 exclusive content arrangements.
POPULAR Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 June 11 Update – Update on New Weapons, Contracts, And More
Alcatraz is back this week on PS4, and we’ve added two new destinations! On one side of the island, a multi-level Submarine has appeared, which might look familiar to fans of Icebreaker in MP. On the other end, a torn-apart Shipwreck has run ashore, allowing players to jump between different levels and fight at tilted angles. This offers new cover and vantage points toward the cliffs, with new gameplay options in the shallows between the main island and the small island.
On the island itself, one of the cell blocks has mysteriously vanished from the main Cellhouse, changing sightlines and creating a new open space in the center of the building. The roof is open to this area, creating a new landing point and new grappling and combat opportunities. This change also improves navigation and makes it easier for players to engage without sacrificing that close-quarters feel.
