Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not have Supply Drops or Loot Boxes

It appears that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not feature any Supply Drops or Loot Boxes. Infinity Ward’s studio Art Director, Joel Emslie, has confirmed this, stating that the team is not working on any kind of supply drop or loot box system.

Furthermore, players will be able to unlock functional stuff through gameplay in this upcoming Call of Duty title.

“There continues to be misinformed and incorrect info being pushed about Modern Warfare. What I can say right now is that we are definitely NOT working on any kind of supply drop or loot box system. Also, functional stuff is unlocked through GAMEPLAY.”

Emslie concluded that Infinity Ward and Activision will reveal more details this week.

In a rapid fire interview with GameInformer, Infinity Ward revealed that the game will, however, have micro-transactions. My guess, though, is that these microtransactions will be for cosmetic items. It will be also interesting to see whether there will be any “time-save” items. Moreover, we are curious to see whether Activision will add any loot boxes after the game releases. We’ve seen this happening in the past, so this is something we should also take into consideration.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases on October 25th and will support DXR and Ray Tracing. Infinity Ward will be using Ray Tracing in order to enhance the game’s shadows. The game will also take advantage of photogrammetry.

This new COD game will also support cross-play between PC, Xbox One and PS4. Furthermore, the PC version will have uncapped framerates, FOV slider, advanced mouse settings & more.

I’ve also included below the latest official trailer for COD: MW that passed under our radar. This trailer came out five days ago and focuses on its Special Ops mode. Do note that Special Ops will not be exclusive to PS4. This 4-player co-op mode will be available on all platforms.
