Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Ground War mode is set in a huge map with vehicles, 64+ players

Published

GameInformer has just started their exclusive coverage of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, as the game is their cover story for this month. GameInformer has released their Cover Story of when they visited Infinity Ward, which has just some new details on the MP experience in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

The cover story reveals that GameInformer had a chance to actually play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Ground War mode at the Infinity Ward Studio. GameInformer says that the mode version they played was 64 players, but Activision has since said in a press release that the mode supports more than 100 players.

GameInformer describes this mode similar to that of large-scale Battlefield style maps. The mode for this large map is Domination, 5-Flag capture style similar to that of the 20v20 mode.

GameInformer says that the map has “lots of open space, high sight-lines from key landmarks, and areas with sparse cover.”

The mode features many landmarks across the map and smaller corridors for combat. The map features vehicles, choppers, and more and is set in a downtown of a city with skyscrapers and even banks in the area. GameInformer says in the match they played “choppers fly by, smashing into buildings as whorls of infantry scatter and merge from cover on the streets below.”

Choppers whiz by above while players spawn into secured locations and even APCs on the move, planning their next cap point. Cover is everywhere in the side alleys and between buildings, but watch yourself carefully if you’re planning to trek the spacious roads, as they provide little protection and can turn into everything from small scale-skirmishes on the fly around upturned cars to sniper massacres. You’re incredibly exposed in these areas, so judicious use of smoke, fast movement from cover to cover, and working as incursion teams are all critical to success if you plan to spend any time on these expanses of concrete.

From mini-assaults into areas between towering buildings to huge team assaults on the bank, there’s a ton going on in Ground War and death comes swift as ever – there are no fixed classes like support or assault, instead, you can bring in any loadout that you can conjure up from any of the other standard multiplayer modes and change it as needed during the course of a war.

Ground War mode will deliver an epic scale of combat for the very first time in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

‘More content’ coming to Modern Warfare as Season 6 ends

Published

While November 23 marks the end of the Season 6 Battle Pass in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, fans have been wondering about new content for the title.

There has been no official news on what’s next in terms of content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare after Warzone’s integration with Black Ops Cold War.

The confirmation we have so far is that Modern Warfare will receive a new progression system to match the new system in Black Ops Cold War starting on December 10. Fans can learn more about the Progression system in a detailed blog post.

Now, an Infinity Ward developer has confirmed on Twitter that there is more content planned for Modern Warfare. He says that he’s not aware of the ‘official name’ of the new content, but more is coming.

It’s not clear at this time what the new content will be for Modern Warfare. Modern Warfare continues to be a very popular Call of Duty game, selling over 30 million copies in its first year. Activision has not outlined future plans for the game itself.

Season 6’s Battle Pass officially ended in Modern Warfare & Warzone on November 23. The pass reset timer says 0seconds left.

Warzone will officially be tied to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s system starting on December 10 with a new Classified Experience. Players playing Modern Warfare MP can continue to level up their overall player rank and access the Seasonal Prestige system. They can also contribute toward’s ranking up the Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Battle Pass, but content unlocked is only usable in Black Ops cold War & Warzone.

We’ll keep you updated as more information is announced.

How Modern Warfare progression will change after Season 6

Modern Warfare will integrate with Cold War in December. Here’s how that will work.

Season 6 of Modern Warfare ends on November 23, so what’s next for the title after integration with Black Ops Cold War?

Season 6 appears to be the final season of Modern Warfare. With the launch of Black Ops: Cold War, the focus has been shifted to the new title and Warzone.

It’s not the end of Modern Warfare, however. Season 6 ends on November 23. After that, fans will have to wait until December 10, when Modern Warfare and Warzone integrate with Black Ops Cold War.

This integration will bring a new progression system to the game. Read on to find out how the new progression system works and what’s next for Modern Warfare.

Modern Warfare progression

On December 10, progression will become unified between Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare, and Warzone. This means that you’ll now have one rank for all three titles. No matter which game you’re playing, you will rank up on all of them.

This new progression system combines Modern Warfare’s seasonal progression with the classic Prestige system. Every season, once you hit the maximum season level, you will begin your Prestige levels. Season levels will reset every Season, but your progress will resume from the highest Prestige you achieved in the previous Season. 

Your current level on Modern Warfare will be scrapped once integration begins. Your Black Ops Cold War rank will now become your rank on Modern Warfare. As you play either Cold War, Warzone, or Modern Warfare, your rank will increase.

Future of Modern Warfare

usually, once a new Call of Duty launches, the population of the previous game begins to dwindle. The majority of players move onto the new game, and only a hardcore few remain on the previous title.

Unified progression might change this. With Warzone being the connecting mode between Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War, weapons from both titles can be used in Warzone.

Warzone is free-to-play and allows players to use weapons from both games, even if they don’t own them. Leveling up weapons and unlocking camos is much easier in multiplayer, so players may return to Modern Warfare’s multiplayer to get attachments for use in Warzone.

Although Black Ops Cold War has released, it’s certainly not the end for Modern Warfare.

Black Ops Cold War UK opening week sales lower than Modern Warfare

Published

on

The first full week data from the UK on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War sales are out, and the numbers are not as high as 2019’s sales.

The UK game charts, via GamesIndustry, reveals that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s digital downloads were up 39% over Modern Warfare’s 2019 opening.

However, the game’s physical sales were down almost 64% compared to Modern Warfare.

The first week UK charts saw Assassins Creed Valhalla debut at #1 in terms of physical game sales. Some report that this is due to Black Ops Cold War’s digital purchase incentives, and that the game’s physical edition was not available in certain retailers.

Combining the digital and physical sales from launch week, Black Ops Cold War debuts at #1 in the UK charts. But the game’s overall sales didn’t match Modern Warfare’s opening week in the UK.

Data shows the game’s first week sales are down 16% compared to Modern Warfare. Modern Warfare is one of the best selling Call of Duty games of all time. The game’s opening weekend in October 2019 saw $600 million in revenue. The title has gone on to sold well over 30 million copies to date.

And it’s become clear that Warzone’s success could’ve impacted sales for the new titles. Warzone’s integration with Black Ops Cold War is set for December 10. It could be that after the integration, Activision will see higher premium upgrades from players interested in the entire game’s experience.

Activision has not released opening week data for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The company only has said that the game’s day one digital sales were the ‘highest’ in franchise history.
