Modern Warfare progression details revealed - ranks, challenges and more

The new Modern Warfare will have an absolute ton of post-release content, and Activision says the game has the most DLC out of any Call of Duty in history, and all of it will be 100% free for all players (except of course for the Spec Ops Survival mode that's exclusive to PS4). Additionally, the Battle Pass will feature COD Points that allow players to purchase items in an in-game store. Many fans will be pleased to know that it will be totally ditching the loot box system, with what may be a more consumer friendly plan in place.

However, the Battle Pass will not be launching alongside the game later next week. Beyond 4K and variable frame rates, the PC version of the game will also support ultra-wide and multi-monitor setups, ensuring you can see Captain Price's chops in the resolution they deserve. "Battle Passes will launch timed to new, post-launch live seasons, so you can unlock cool new Modern Warfare-themed content that matches each season". The first Battle Pass will hit "later this year". If you're one of those players, you can pre-order Call of Duty: Modern Warfare right now on your platform of choice for $60.

Some of our more skeptical readers might consider the possibility that everything might technically be achievable through normal play, but at the expense of increased grinding versus compared to simply shelling out cash for the Premium Pass (a la Battlefront 2's release-day monetization system).

In any case, this looks like an easy fix for Google, still; it shouldn't have been in the review units to begin with. Google has reportedly told BBC that this is how the face unlock feature will function when the Pixel 4 goes on sale.


Best of all, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will receive both free and paid content as part of its Battle Pass system, with various cosmetics, weapons, and attachments to unlock.

Activision also revealed the Modern Warfare preload and launch times: Preloading will begin at 10 am PT/1 pm ET on October 22, while the global launch time is set for 6 pm PT/9 pm ET on October 24.

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