And an other Interview with Infinity Ward’s Fourzerotwo by
Interviewing Fourzerotwo was actually one of the hardest tasks I’ve undertaken as a journalist. Not because 402 was hard to interview – he’s one of the most down-to-earth, laid back, easiest people to talk to I’ve met in the industry to date – but because there was this huge elephant in the room that we weren’t really allowed to talk about Multiplayer.
The event was another chance for us to get our hands on Spec Ops Survival mode, as Activision aren’t ready for us to hear about Multiplayer just yet. That’s something they’re saving for a later date (more on that later). Fortunately though, 402 did throw in the odd hint and a multiplayer fact here and there.
For those that aren’t aware, traditional Spec Ops mode will still be around in Modern Warfare 3. You’ll be able to play two player co-op on most of the campaign mode missions. Spec Ops Survival Mode takes a completely different approach. It will be a way for you and a friend (or stranger, for that matter) to jump onto any multiplayer map and kill waves of NPCs.
When asked about the Survival Mode/Multiplayer maps, 402 wouldn’t confirm that we’ll see a London based level, but hinted that we just might!
With a bunch of old perks being removed from Multiplayer this time around, we’re going to see a host of new ones introduced in Modern Warfare 3. Obviously Robert 402 play around with, in replacement of the older somewhat over-powered selection.
