Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare's 100-Player Modes Should Be Available At Launch

But is it battle royale?


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is already confirmed to feature the franchise's biggest multiplayer mode ever with its 64-player Ground War. As suspected, the military shooter may offer multiplayer modes that are even bigger in scale.

In a press release, Activision said the previously discussed 100-player modes may be available at launch. "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer is expected to support up to 100 players in select multiplayer experiences upon launch on October 25," Activision said.

Now Playing: How Call of Duty Modern Warfare's Ground War Gameplay Works

The wording here is important. The release specifically mentions "select multiplayer experiences" plural, which suggests there may be more than one 100-player mode. Additionally, the line mentions that these modes, whatever they are, are "expected"--but not confirmed--to be available upon release.

In August, Infinity Ward's Joel Emslie told GameSpot that Modern Warfare is capable of supporting more than 100 players, though he didn't have any more information to share at the time. It remains to be seen if the 100-player mode(s) will be battle royale or something else entirely.

2018's Call of Duty game, Black Ops 4, features a battle royale mode called Blackout. Just this week, the mode introduced huge tanks to crank up the action.

Modern Warfare, which is a reboot of the 2007 game of the same name, launches on October 25 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In a big change for the series, post-release DLC maps are free. Not only that, but the game supports cross-play and cross-saves. Just recently, it was also confirmed that PS4 players will have exclusive access to the Survival mode in Spec Ops.

The game launches with a huge amount of hype behind it, as the Modern Warfare beta was the franchise's biggest ever in terms of total number of players and hours spent in the game.
