Sony has provided details on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Survival Mode, which is a timed-exclusive to the PlayStation 4 version of the upcoming military shooter. As previously confirmed, it’s part of the game’s Spec Ops offering, and from the sound of things, is very similar to what we saw in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Survival Mode Detailed
As expected, Survival Mode sees you teaming up with another player in co-op and fighting off waves of enemies. Think Horde Mode from Gears of War and you’ve pretty much got the right picture. Here’s the official blurb:
Special Ops Survival Mode is an exclusive, additional cooperative mode for PlayStation 4 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players that pits you and up to three of your friends against enemy forces in intense cooperative combat. In Special Ops Survival Mode, you will fight off waves of increasingly difficult and determined combatants in a variety of experiences. Gear up and get ready for endless cooperative fun.
Survival Mode initially caused some backlash from players due to its PS4 timed exclusivity, although Infinity Ward was quick to note that the decision was ‘above all our pay grades.’
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is scheduled for release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One on October 25. The game is a full reboot of the popular sub-series, and sees the return of Captain Price and other familiar faces, albeit in a different universe to the previous games.
