Call of Duty: Modern Warfare won’t have Zombies.
Last time, it was Black Ops 4 missing a single player campaign. This time, it’s Modern Warfare not having a Zombies mode.
We can see how Activision may cut corners here and there to concentrate on other aspects of the game, but it seems like fans won’t be getting the full package again this time around.
Although the single player campaign will be back in Modern Warfare, we won’t be getting Zombies. Modern Warfare will be the fourth entry to the series, and will also getting a soft reboot. This may be the direction to go, as Modern Warfare hasn’t been the best series out there.
So far, we know a few details about the game, such as that the campaign will be back and that the game will release on October 25. Other than that, we also know that the game won’t have a Zombies mode.
The previous Call of Duty made by Infinity Ward happened to be Infinite Warfare, which didn’t do too hot at all. But the game did have a Zombies mode.
Gameplay Director, Jacob Minkoff, explained the reasoning behind why Zombies was removed this time around:
“Because they focus on more of the stylized, graphic novel, super-hero experience, they can have the much more ‘out there’ different types of gameplay in their games. But for us, 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.”
We should note that CoD: Ghosts also didn’t have Zombies. They’re trying to get the game back to how it used to be and bring back the authenticity and the line of a soft reboot.
The game will also have a co-op mode:
“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.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare rolls out on October 25 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The game will support cross-play between all platforms and cross-progression between weapons on all game modes.
