Publisher Activision announced some new post-launch content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, including new maps and the return of a popular game mode.
Activision tweeted the news, stating that all Modern Warfare players will be able to enjoy this Friday's content for free. The game's Ground War and traditional Multiplayer modes will get new maps, Krovnik Farmland and Shoot House respectively. Further, developer Infinity Ward is finally adding Hardpoint, a franchise mainstay game mode. There's no additional information on either maps or Hardpoint.
Modern Warfare recently launched on October 25 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and the first-person shooter secured the number one spot on the US PS4's best-selling games list. Some of the game's guns are apparently bugged, though, including a handful of rifles and the double-barreled 725 shotgun. Modern Warfare's multiplayer co-director, Joe Cecot, confirmed on Twitter that a "weapon tuning" update is on the way. These changes are part of a large update Infinity Ward has been talking about for quite some time and will include bug fixes and balance tweaks, stability improvements, and more.
In other news, Modern Warfare has seen some criticism for its "Highway of Death" reference. Infinity Ward's narrative director, Taylor Kurosaki, addressed the controversial direction the game's campaign takes. "I think you could probably find many instances of the words 'highway of death' being used in a lot of cases," Kurosaki said.
