For the first time in Call of Duty series history, Modern Warfare will feature cross-play support for players on all platforms. In following months of release, post-launch content will come to players on all platforms, for free.

Shortly before launch, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare faced backlash from fans over a timed exclusive Spec Ops Survival mode for PS4. There was a rumor of Activision adding loot boxes and pay-to-win mechanics but that is yet to be seen.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Special Ops Trailer

In a new trailer, Activision offers a close look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Special Ops co-op mode.

Serving as a soft reboot of Modern Warfare sub-series, first-person shooter title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision is all set to arrive on October 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Less than away from launch, MW is revealing new details every now and then to keep up the hype. In a recently released trailer, fan-favorite game mode Special Ops marks its anticipated return and re-imagined for a new generation.

Latest Modern Warfare official trailer showcases high-octane gameplay aspects of Spec Ops multiplayer mode.




RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunfight Mode Revealed

CoD: MW multiplayer mode Special Ops is comprised of a couple of interconnected Operations where you will form four-player strike teams to take down a threat from Eastern Hemisphere and complete multiple objectives as well.

In order to complete these team-based missions, players can either take a stealthy approach or go all guns blazing if they want. Throughout a wide variety of maps, Operations would offer the most involved activities and experiences.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunsmith System Teased

You and your team would engage Al-Qatala army in the city of Verdansk and destroy their detailed coordinates. Primarily, four multi-stage Operations would be available at release and progress would carry over to multiplayer modes.

You are also free to hop on an ATV, helicopter, tank or any other vehicles necessary for your tactics to succeed. Though players are free to make calculated moves, enemy A.I. will react accordingly and thus, may change the tide of battle.

Missions can be played out solo or in a team of four to test your performance in a star ranking based system. These are more complex type of Operations, designed to be replayable and focused on killstreaks, weapons and other features.

Special Ops Survival is basically a wave-based horde mode where players are to go up against tides of increasingly difficult and resolved group of opponents over a Multiplayer map in co-operative combat alongside three friends.

Since progressions will carry over and are interconnected, Spec Ops mode will serve as a great add-on to Modern Warfare campaign. Also, something sinister is teased nearing the end of trailer, which probably is a throwback to Modern Warfare 2.

Call of Duty series veterans would recognize some modern rendition of familiar world from Modern Warfare games. There are plans for adding more post-launch content for Spec Ops mode but no details are revealed just yet.

One of the biggest reasons for MW craze among fans is cross-play support, which is the first ever in entire CoD franchise. That excitement has faded soon for Spec Ops Survival mode as it would remain a PS4-exclusive feature for a full year.

Despite Infinity Ward denying any timed exclusivity content for Sony consoles, it was later revealed that above-mentioned multiplayer mode in fact is not coming to PC and Xbox One platforms before October 1, 2020 at all.

However, this move shouldn't come to players as a surprise considering PS4 players got their hands on Beta program ahead of others, establishing the fact that people who own Sony consoles would get more than just Day 1 advantage.

Activision reportedly got a large number of pre-order cancelled for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare over Survival mode timed exclusivity but is still keeping up because it is too late now for any renegotiation of their contract with Sony.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PS4-Exclusive Mode Outrage

Player on PC and Xbox One are angry over Call of Duty: Modern Warfare yearlong PS4-exclusive mode.

Only a few days ago, developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision has successfully launched an Open Beta program for upcoming first-person shooter title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Turns out, multiplayer beta for Modern Warfare has drawn largest number of audience in entire Call of Duty history. Then upon players discovering inclusion of a yearlong PS4-exclusive mode, things quickly went to south.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Leaked

Activision and Infinity Ward stated that most of CoD: MW post-release content will be released simultaneously on all platforms unlike before but PS4 players would have a limited timed exclusivity period over them.

In best cases, Sony console owners will get Day 1 advantage but when it comes to Spec Ops Survival mode, it will exclusive for a full year. This absolutely nonsense has definitely irked majority of PC and Xbox One player community.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Revealed

Earlier, developers premiered story trailer for their latest shooter in recent State of Play stream by Sony Interactive Entertainment and there, Spec Ops mode is stated to remain exclusive to PS4 until October 1, 2020 nearing its end at 2:30.

Infinity Ward garnered so much fan support for MW 2019 being a fan-service title so far but Activision apparently made a deal with Sony a year before already, probably to get them on cross-platform play on top of a hefty sum of money.

RELATED: PlayStation State of Play September 2019

Even narrative director Taylor Kurosaki went on Twitter for some clarity about this decision that made fans mad.



RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2v2 Mode Alpha Announced

Kurosaki says that except for Spec Ops Survival mode, everything else is available for players on all platforms. Moreover, this unforeseen decision was made by people above their pay grade, which is a clear nod to publisher Activision.

He also claimed that PS4-exclusive mode is only 1% of the whole game and keeping it out doesn't simply ruin entire Modern Warfare experience for a player since 99% of content comes out for everyone on same day.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer Gameplay Reveal

All that hype that was built around Modern Warfare being incredibly gory and grounded in realism, plus having cross-play support for all has dimmed down by the confirmation of a locked away multiplayer mode until October 2020.

Anyone who is not on PS4 is not getting the full game and therefore, shouldn't pay full price. PC and Xbox One player base are rallying over social media to cancel their pre-order to protest against such ridiculous action by publisher.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunsmith System Teased

By the time this timed exclusivity will over and Spec Ops Survival will launch on other platforms, essentially a new Call of Duty game will be out, which is presumably Call of Duty: Black Ops V and then people will forget about the issue.

Sony has been enjoying timed-exclusive access to Call of Duty post-launch content from 2015 and though many are claiming lately that is coming to an end, recent Open Beta coming two days early on PlayStation 4 suggests otherwise.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunfight Mode Revealed

Paying full price and then waiting for a full year only encourages many other AAA-companies in gaming industry for such unfair treatment of customers, or maybe they will even try to pull of something scummier than this next year.

If a major fraction of players from PC and Xbox One platforms ended up cancelling their pre-order, Activision may take a hit and learn a lesson but they are likely to have already anticipated something like this in advance and act accordingly.

RELATED: Call of Duty 2020 Will Be Black Ops 5

When releasing multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny back in 2014, a couple Strikes were exclusive to PS4 for a year and by the time they came to Xbox consoles, DLC expansions started coming out and those early contents lost all hype.

At this point, there may not be any way to revise their exclusivity deal with Sony but all that positive buzz Call of Duty: Modern Warfare received so far are now being blurred into oblivion for greedy moves made by its publisher.

Call of Duty 2020 Rumored to Be Black Ops Reboot

According to rumor, Call of Duty 2020 game is going to be a reboot of Black Ops sub-series and grittier than Modern Warfare.

Starting from this year, Call of Duty first-person shooter franchise is slowly leaning towards a reboot of their popular sub-series and thus, fourth Modern Warfare release is simply referred to as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for 2019.

Although CoD: MW is currently due for an October 2019 launch, publisher Activision has already rallied up developer Treyarch for Call of Duty: Black Ops 5, which may end up simply being named Call of Duty: Black Ops instead.

Activision teases Gunsmith weapon customization system for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer.

Newest addition to Call of Duty first-person shooter series for this year is going to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision, which is currently scheduled to release on October 25, 2019.

Activision has briefly showcased possibilities of customizing a rifle with parts in one of their latest Tweet.



RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunfight Mode Revealed

Ever since Infinity Ward has introduced customizable loadouts in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, it became an essential part of the series that each follow up release have adapted and upcoming MW will have it refined for better.

Gunsmith will allow players to tool up their primary and secondary weapons for competitive game mode with adjustments and firepower. Picking up important attachments from an array of kits is very crucial in multiplayer matches.

RELATED: Call of Duty 2020 Will Be Black Ops 5

When it comes to Assault rifles, you have nine areas to choose from to augment your weapon and they are balanced suppressor, CQB grip, corp combat, holo sight, lightweight stock, muzzle break, scout combat optic or a perk.

However, you can only customize up to five parts for each guns at your disposal unless they are already filled. According to unique playstyle, each player would take a different approach to tweak their weapons that suits them in battle.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Leaked

Most interesting aspect of gun balancing is its limitation of five mod slots because different guns will offer varied amount of available slots. When there are fewer mod slots, people will pick up parts very carefully and leave out some.

As players will get their hands on more slots, they would likely to pick up pieces that are most important to enhance those weapons. In both scenarios, people would have to be very careful about what they end up choosing to kit their guns.

Though majority of players and hardcore gamers have embraced it, mainstream critics and game journalists were asking for an easy mode. Their prayers have finally been answered as a new mod has arrived to add an easy mode.

It provides attack buffs to protagonist one-armed Wolf and thus, helps taking down enemies quicker. Players are also given infinite amount of in-game currency Spirit Emblem to access abilities and weapons while removing fall damage.

Item drop rates and buff duration for weapons are increased along with timer of Puppeteer Ninjutsu technique to backstab opponents. There are other mods to balance out some features but Sekiro The Easy packs a couple of them into one.
