Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s battle pass was confirmed a few weeks back. But Activision didn’t reveal its launch date at the time. Now, the battle pass, which was actually coming earlier than most of us expected, is going to be available next month.
Activision revealed its results for the third quarter and its latest release, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, was among the most discussed topics. In a call with investors, the gaming giant mentioned that it plans to have the battle pass in December. The company said the battle pass is actually arriving later than initially planned.
The battle pass was confirmed before the game’s release. The announcement was a bit of a surprise since it is a change from previous releases. Over the last few years, the company has used supply drops as its system.
For this year’s release, the battle pass system will offer something completely different. Instead of the boxes, players will have a system in which they can unlock rewards by playing and advancing through the levels. Activision has not given details on the upcoming battle pass but we’re all guessing that it is going to work similar to what Fortnite, Apex Legends and other video games offer.
Battle Pass System: How It Works
The battle pass system offers 100 levels, with many of those levels earning unlocks for players. In some cases, like Apex Legends, the system offers bonus levels after 100. In several games, the system also offers a few rewards for those who don’t have the battle pass.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, released on October 25, offers tons of unlocks and challenges to complete. But the battle pass system will provide much more content to keep players entertained.
The game currently offers several challenges and unlocks for each weapon. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has only been out for two weeks but Activision is making sure that there is plenty of content for the game in the near future.
New Update Released Today
Speaking of content, the company dropped an update earlier today to add a few things. Among the new content is two maps and the Hardpoint mode. The two new maps are a nice addition since the game’s main criticism has been some of the maps, which are said to have bad spawns or are simply not fun to play on.
One of those maps is for the Ground War mode, which launched with just two maps. The other map was announced as a multiplayer map, meaning it will be available for various game modes.
Hardpoint is also a nice addition to the game since it is always good to have a variety of modes. In recent days, the game has added a separate game mode for its night maps and launched kill confirmed, which is similar to TDM but with the ingredient that players have to pick up tags in order for the points to count.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
