Earlier this week, Twitter user The Gaming Revolution, who is usually reliable when it comes to Call of Duty-related leaks, revealed that a Battle Pass was being planned for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The user also revealed that there won't be a loot box system in the upcoming first-person shooter. \n \nThen on Thursday, Activision confirmed that there won't be a loot box system in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but the game will feature a Battle Pass. So, once again, The Gaming Revolution's COD-related leak proved to be correct in the end. \n \nOver on their official blog, Activision revealed the details for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's Battle Pass. \n \n \tWe are introducing a new Battle Pass system, not a loot box system. \n \tAll functional content that has an impact on game balance, such as base weapons and attachments, can be unlocked simply by playing the game. \n \tThe new Battle Pass system will allow players to see the content that they are earning or buying. Battle Passes will launch timed to new, post-launch live seasons, so you can unlock cool new Modern Warfare-themed content that matches each season. \n \tWith the new Battle Pass system, players will be able to earn COD Points by playing the game. \n \tThere will be both a Free Stream and a Premium Stream of content in the Battle Pass System in Modern Warfare. New base weapons will be earned through gameplay, simply by playing Modern Warfare. \n \tThe Battle Pass and the In-Game Store will feature a variety of cosmetic content that does not impact game balance. \n \nActivision also confirmed that the Battle Pass won't be available at launch. \n \nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=zu3wZ-_IKrM \n \nIn addition to leaking Activision's plan for a Battle Pass in their upcoming game, The Gaming Revolution also reported that there will be a Battle Royale mode added to Modern Warfare post-launch and that it'll be free-to-download and play this coming January. So, that's probably when the Battle Pass will go live. \n \nAs of this writing, Activision hasn't announced a Battle Royale mode, but according to the aforementioned Twitter user, the mode is Infinity Ward's primary focus now that COD: MW has gone gold. If that is, in fact, the case, then expect to see the devs announce the mode before the end of the year. \n \nCall of Duty: Modern Warfare is currently scheduled to be released on the Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on October 25, and for the first time, the game will feature crossplay, which will allow players on all platforms to play with and against each other.
