Activision revealed its massive Season One content drop for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Coming tomorrow, the downloadable content (DLC) is being billed as the largest free replace in Call of Duty historical past.
The multiplayer content for Modern Warfare is a departure from previous years, when Activision charged charges for every DLC drop or required a subscription for all the assortment. The technique is supposed to maintain a big base of gamers collectively, enjoying the identical maps and accessing the identical multiplayer options for all gamers.
That base needs to be bigger this yr as a result of Activision has enabled crossplay and cross development on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC for the primary time. And up to now, the technique appears to be working, as the corporate introduced in November that Modern Warfare was outselling 2018’s Black Ops Four by a wholesome margin.
I’ve performed by the marketing campaign for Modern Warfare, and I’m at degree 40 in multiplayer (openingthexbox on PS4), and I’ve loved this model of Call of Duty greater than most years. When the sport shipped nevertheless, it appeared like I used to be enjoying some of the identical maps again and again. If you preferred Ground War, a brand new 32-vs.-32 human multiplayer fest that was reminiscent of Battlefield, there have been solely two maps within the rotation.
Ground War itself is a sniper fest, the place gamers snipe at one another from skyscrapers or tall manufacturing unit buildings. I’ve loved leveling up my mild machine gun and utilizing that to harass the snipers. My kill-to-death ratio is 0.80, which is best than final yr and to me it means the modes and maps are balanced for the broader lots. For enjoyable, I’ve included a hyperlink to 1 of my current rounds.
Fans have additionally been reacting negatively in earlier years to Activision’s tendency to cost for varied objects similar to loot containers, however in October, builders stated they’d abandon that technique as a result of poor suggestions.
