Activision Says “Most” Post-Launch Content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Will Release Simultaneously Across All Platforms
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will roll out new additions such as maps to all players at once this time around.
For years, one platform has typically received add-on content for each year’s iteration of Call of Duty before others. This generation, that platform has typically been the PS4, thanks to the partnership that Activision and PlayStation have. This year, however, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, it seems as though this practice will be ending.
In a new blog post from Activision today, the publisher revealed that nearly all post-launch content that comes to Modern Warfare will be hitting all platforms at once, rather than coming to one earlier than the others. This move is seemingly to make crossplay easier, which Modern Warfare will be boasting this time around.
“Most Post-launch gameplay content, including new multiplayer maps, new multiplayer modes, special ops missions and more will release simultaneously across all platforms,” Activision stated in the post. However, it was said that Activision’s its partnership with PlayStation will still continue and that “PS4 players will have an exciting Day 1 advantage.” More information on just what this is and on future plans for post-launch content are said to be unveiled closer to the release of Modern Warfare.
Many fans have been begging for this move to come to fruition for quite some time, so it’s good to see it finally happening. Crossplay seems to be a big focus for the team at Infinity Ward this year with Modern Warfare and hopefully it’ll only help grow the game’s community moving forward.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will launch next month on October 25 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game’s beta period is set to kick off again later this week on Thursday, September 19 in Early Access before going live for all this weekend.
