Activision has revealed that Modern Warfare would be the first Call of Duty game to have a battle pass system to manage its in-game economy. So the much maligned loot boxes would be done away with in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
The battle pass system was popularized by Fortnite which allows players to buy pass at the beginning of the season and unlock many items as they progress. In fact, this system has been adopted by games like Destiny 2 and PUBG. The battle pass system in Call of Duty would be quite similar to what we see in Fortnite where players would be able to buy a pass at the beginning and get a variety of items as they progress in the game.
Activision has also announced that all functional items which can affect balance in the game, viz. base weapons and attachments, will be unlocked simply by playing the game. Each battle pass would have both premium and free items and players would also be able to unlock items COD points through the battle passes.
But here’s the twist in the tale. The battle system would not be launched on October 25th with the launch of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game. It would be launched later this year. For now, players would have to unlock things by playing the game.
