Fortnite changed the way that game makers generate revenue from online FPS titles. The way that Fortnite did this is by showing just how profitable the Battle Pass can be and therefore, it should come as no surprise that Activision and Infinity Ward are now introducing a Battle Pass in the latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
The developers who are in charge of Modern Warfare know that players don’t like spending extra money on games and they are doing their best to advertise the Battle Pass as “the biggest free content drop in Call of Duty history”.
Modern Warfare Receives its First Battle Pass
Modern Warfare fans who are paying for premium access are now being notified that the 100 tiers of Battle Pass rewards will go live next week. The new season starts on December 3rd and that is when players will be able to complete new challenges and earn rewards.
We also want to mention that everything that the developers of Modern Warfare have announced until now is available for free. However, players will need to earn access to the new content by completing challenges/quests. This is not a bad thing by any means because it gives players a reason to keep having fun.
The Battle Pass will bring new maps such as the iconic Call of Duty: 4 Modern Warfare, Crash, Vacant and Shipment. Not just that, but the game is also going to expand with three new game mods.
One of the game modes is a 2v2 gunfight where players need to search for weapons and resources when the game starts, similar to the famous Battle Royale mode that is featured in PUBG and Fortnite.
