PlayStation Blog has posted a Q&A with Sledgehammer Games’ Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield.

Many of the answers were details that were previously announced, but there are some new details in the post: specifically about the new narrative based MP mode called War.

War is a PVP Mode in Multiplayer, “a narrative based mode where Allied and Axis soldiers clash in team-driven assault & defend gameplay in the fight for strategic objectives.”

Condrey confirms that Raven Software is developing this mode alongside SHG and more details on the mode are expected to come at E3, along with the full MP reveal.

We partnered with Raven Software for development on War Mode. It’s a fun new mode, and an important component of bringing our overall vision to life. We couldn’t be more excited to be revealing several of our new multiplayer features for the first time at E3.

    “a ton of new ways to compete” -Michael Condrey

    lolololo, these are the people developing Call of Duty…

    Anyway, this sounds fantastic. I really hope it returns in future games.

  • Jhonatan Orlando Ferro

    prepare for tanks and huge map for this!… Im on it!

    • BradyAlucard

      Huge maps? Snoozefest, no thanks. I wouldn’t touch this game with a 10 ft pole.

      • PuddleOfStix

        Okay, so don’t. We will, and we’ll enjoy it.

        • Jacob Taschler

          To stay competitive, have to have normal size map. You losers who want large maps with tanks and planes and all that dumb shit can have one game mode. Have fun.

          • PuddleOfStix

            I… what? Not once did I say I want huge maps. I said I’d buy and enjoy this game.

          Lol okay suit yourself. Where is this coming from anyway? You know the last time we got “huge maps” from? Ghosts, so have fun playing on Stonehaven in 6v6.

          Same to the 5 people who liked your comment.

          • PuddleOfStix

            See my comment above yours? Where I said that I never claimed to want big maps? Or did you just not read it to reply ASAP? Because not reading something like that and arguing against it just makes you look like you’re arguing for the sake of it.

          • BradyAlucard

            I did and didn’t really care, I was just jelly that you had 5 likes and I like to get the last word. It’s petty and that’s what’s so funny about it ya know?

    • jordanxbrookes

      I hope we gets tanks and large maps too. Also fingers crossed we get higher player counts for it as well.

      • And jeeps and bikes!

      • Hitman

        Battlefield much?

  • TechaGek.

    am i the only one wanting war to be a version of coduo’s base assault?
    why else would a fully capable team partner with raven for just a game mode?

    • Han

      I remember that gamemode when I used to play coduo all the time as a kid. This would be a nostalgia trip for me and I’d love that.

  • bmac74207

    Sounds like clan wars

  • Diego Diniz

    People plays TDM 24h
    Sad but True!

  • This sounds AWESOME. It’s insane that SHG really seem to be the risk takers out of the three studios.

    • Batman

      They dont have any fear or concerns, That’s why I love them

    I’m just a little skeptical that this is going to end up being a little too similar to Battlefield 1. Will be interesting to see how they do this and what comes of it though.

  • I love Raven Software, I honestly hope we get them as a full game developer soon.

  • Skillreks

    Remember in BO1 where on the big maps, they made them smaller for games like FFA and party games? I wouldn’t mind if they did this here as well. OR if they have some individual maps for this “War” gamemode, that would be cool too. for instance, there could be 12 MP maps, and 4 war maps. or the 12 maps would be bigger for War, but would be cut down for 6v6 games

    • Yeah I thought that too. Like they do in Battlefield too, where the more compact game modes have compact versions of the maps. Would be a nice change to have the choice of a large map or a smaller one, instead of the usual 3 lane snorefest

  • I’m going to be cautiously optimistic as always. However, this seems very interesting. Perhaps even a breath of fresh air. Let’s face it, we get the same modes each year, nice to see we are taking some chances again.

  • Dr. Salim

    Soooooo like Operations in BF1?

  • Ayob Rossi

    Remember it’s not the maps fault that they’re big it’s the old and boring 6v6 players. Battlefield can fit 64 player in one big map and the map doesn’t feel that big because there are people everywhere. So this “War” game mode better have more than 6v6. Im tired of small maps because I hate getting raped from behind. People hate ghosts for the big maps because the maps were not balanced with the player count, even ground war didn’t do the job.


    Oh no why “RAVEN” they still havent fix MWR


    But for the good part finally a game that will destroy “IW”

  • Bleak5170

    This sounds EXACTLY what I have been asking CoD devs to put in the game for years now. So many other games had a mode like this – it’s something Call of Duty has been sorely lacking.


    Haha Raven worked on CoD Ghosts multiplayer and MWR, they sucked dick just like this game will.
