The new Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare has been the talk of the town since its grand unveiling. While the biggest topics are the no zombie mode and the shocking campaign. One thing we should really put in the spotlight is the cross-platform play. Which is not only a key selling point, but a huge jump in the right direction for the future of gaming.
It’s not uncommon to see the occasional game with possible cross-play between PC and Xbox or the PS4. However, there has been a long-standing dispute between Sony and Microsoft to allow cross-platform play between the consoles. Enter the new Call of Duty Modern Warfare.
Activision recently announced a statement after Modern Warfare was unveiled. Explaining that the game would, in fact, feature cross-platform play. Ditching the traditional console exclusives and season pass. In an attempt to unify the gaming community.
With the launch of Modern Warfare, the team is taking steps to unite the community. First, the team plans for Modern Warfare to be played together across PC and console through cross-play support. Also, the team is eliminating the traditional season pass, so that they can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players.Activision
While one would just assume cross-platform meant the usual PC to console. Candice Harris, the producer working on Modern Warfare. Backed up the evidence and answered to fans on twitter about the possibility of complete cross-platform play between consoles.
We can only hope that with Modern Warfare pushing the cross-platform play, many others will follow suit. Shaping the gaming industry into a new era of gaming and uniting gamers from both sides of the console war.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 25, so further details on the games multiplayer will arrive in the coming months.
