It was such a long time coming, but with the official unveiling of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare came relief among a Call of Duty faithful that had been hoping for a return — or reboot — of a franchise favourite.
And with that revisit to Modern Warfare, we are not only set to see the return of Pro Perks, but also of a beloved game mode that hasn’t been seen since 2011’s Modern Warfare 3: Spec Ops.
Modern Warfare developer, Infinity Ward, first unveiled Spec Ops in June, saying it’ll be “Spec Ops like you’ve never seen before”. The studio promised to add in new features, systems, and unlocks, and given it’s been eight years since the last Spec Ops offering, it goes without saying that the mode should have evolved beyond that.
Spec Ops mode will tie into the game’s campaign mode, with weapons, and every other unlock including equipment, carrying directly over into the Spec Ops mode.
Locked in to launch on October 25, alongside the full game across PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox, Spec Ops is a confirmed cooperative missions mode, where up to four players can battle it out across a dynamic story.
