After the initial announcement of the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, information keeps coming. The new installment in the Call of Duty series is creating a great expectation among the public in general and more specifically between the fans of the franchise. Most of those consider Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to be one of the best games in the series, a fact that is backed by its awesome numbers at launch that made it the largest retail release in Activision’s history and the industry’s history.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – Nighttime assault

We already talked a bit about the announcement of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in a recent article, but a few days have passed, and the game continues being a hot topic. Among the new revelations about the game, a very interesting one is the fact that Infinity Ward has decided to remove Zombies mode from this installment. This mode has been a regular in the latest Call of Duty games, but it seems that it doesn’t mix well with the developer´s intentions of creating a gritty and realistic game. Campaign gameplay director Jacob Minkoff explained it in an interview:

“We’re trying to create an authentic, realistic feeling world. We don’t have the flexibility to do something like put zombies in the game. That would compromise the feeling of playing in a world that feels realistic and authentic and relative to today’s conflicts and things we face.”

It makes a lot of sense. Even if the Zombies mode are a lot of fun and they have become a staple addition to the Black Ops series created by Treyarch, it´s true that it has absolutely nothing to do with real conflicts in a modern scenario. Lately, most FPS franchises have decided to adapt their world and incorporate different modes that may or may not have something to do with the original gameplay and story of a certain game. You can find battle royale and zombies in games whose predecessors offered nothing similar. It’s normal that you try to please the players and adapt to what they like, but in some cases, it drives your game very far from its initial premises. It´s good to see a developer that wants to put effort into improving the strong points and qualities of a game, instead of using others’ ideas to deliver “their version of Fortnite.”

It makes even more sense if we take into account that Minkoff has also revealed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare campaign and cooperative gameplay will be tightly linked.

“We’re not ready to talk about cooperative play yet, but what I will tell you is that the single-player storyline goes directly into the co-op storyline. No stop. The events just continue. So those elements – gameplay, progression, story – they just continue throughout everything that we have on the disc or digital download. Knowing that we needed to keep it more similar across the different modes, we decided to really lean into that, and make it completely continuous.”

It’s quite obvious that Infinity Ward is aiming to deliver a realistic and consolidated gaming experience with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Or at least, that´s what it looks according to the information they have revealed so far. It is yet to be seen what kind of surprises, if any, they have in storage for us. There is still a long way until the game launches on October 25th, so we have more than enough time to find out everything about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
