Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Will Have Free Maps, No Loot Boxes

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare publisher Activision reiterated its position to not bring loot boxes to the upcoming game.

But the streamer has never put this kind of effort into some of his favorite games, like PlayerUnknown Battleground and Apex Legends.

However - importantly - the Battle Pass will not be available when Modern Warfare launches next week, so we won't know exactly how the new economy will look on release.

Infinity Ward has been treading water due to fear of the possible implementation of loot boxes after the game launched.

This new system is a great idea and meshes perfectly with the new cross-play initiative, which is part of the big business restructuring that saw 800 non-game dev employees fired.

Activision claims that it's specifically not doing a "loot box system" (will they eat those words in six months?), and "all functional content that has an impact on game balance" (non-cosmetic) can be earned by playing the game.

IOS 13 already on 55% of iPhones, iPadOS on 41% of iPads
Speaking about the iPad, this year Apple released a dedicated iPadOS 13 for its tablets. 33% of all active iPads have also been upgraded.

Interestingly, the Battle Pass won't be on sale on launch day, instead coming out later in the year. Each season will have new content for you to enjoy, with various rewards to unlock, based on in-game progression.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released on October 25, 2019.

There will be both a Free Stream and a Premium Stream of content in the Battle Pass System in Modern Warfare.

Like previous versions of Call of Duty, players can advance their weapons by using them and earning more attachments. Flowing locks, matted patches, vivid stubble, and other glorious facial hair - Modern Warfare has incredible hair game.

As is common with Battle Passes, Modern Warfare's will have free and "premium" tracks, offering some things to everyone but more to those who pay.

What do you think of the new approach to post-launch content?
