Modern Warfare 3 Spec Ops and Survival Mode DetailsBy Alex Co | May 27, 2011 | News | No comments | Share
If you liked Modern Warfare 2’s Spec Ops mode, you’re in for a treat! It looks like Modern Warfare 3 will have a robust Spec Ops mode and we have the first details.
Spec Ops in MW3 will have its own progressive ranking system, online matchmaking and leaderboards. If that’s not enough, we also learn that there’s also a new survival mode that plays out on multiplayer maps.
Survival mode seems to be just like Gears of War’s Horde mode; or to be more specific, Black Ops’ zombie mode.
USA Today has been able to get their hands on the game mode and here’s what they have to say.
I teamed up with Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin for a couple tries at Spec Ops’ new Survival mode on a map currently called Dome, a derelict Cold War-era desert radar command bunker.
As we dispatched ever-increasing waves of enemies, I discarded my pistol for a shotgun. Rubin passed me some in-game currency and I bought and installed a turret to keep the evildoers at bay, while I watched for attack dogs.
After a few waves, the attack dogs became suicide bomber dogs that exploded a few seconds after you shot them. The next wave brought the kamikaze soldiers who exploded similarly.
Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward’s creative strategist added, “”All that stuff really fleshes out Spec Ops and adds in a lot that we know our fans are going to love, some of the most addictive aspects of Multiplayer.”
There will be multiple enemy types as was seen in MW2 and the mode will have an unlimited number of waves.
Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin closed it out by saying, “we added Spec Ops as the third game mode,” he added, “That is really stepped up this time. It is really a stronger leg of the tripod.”
Modern Warfare 3 is being co-developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games for a November 8 release.
