Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Survival Mode Features & Details
Like previous Call of Duty entries, we pretty much know what to expect in Modern Warfare 3. A very action oriented single player experience that will deliver large scale firefights, unique action oriented moments, and a linear gaming experience. While some fans of the series may be getting bored with the same formula year after year, some people may say "if it's not broken, don't fix it." Which seems to be the case with infinity ward.
Modern Warfare 3, however, will feature a completely new game mode this year called "Spec Ops Survival Mode". Every single map will be able to be played in Survival Mode. Survival mode is essentially a game mode where endless waves of enemies will attack you. Similar to Gears of War 2's horde mode or Black Ops Zombies (and many other contemporary shooters that have similar modes).
The Survival mode in Modern Warfare 3 will feature a currency system. The player will be awarded for doing things such as killing enemies, getting killstreaks, and completing individual round criteria. You'll be able to purchase new weapons, refill your ammunition, buy perks, equipment, and more. In fact, you can actually call in air strikes to help you defeat the endless waves of enemy soldiers. Allied infantry can also be called upon as well.
Modern Warfare 3 survival mode
In Survival Mode, players will not only fight enemy soldiers, but also suicide dogs, suicide bombers, and fight against bosses. The boss battles will be enemies like Juggernauts & helicopters. The beginning rounds will mostly be basic enemy soldiers, but as you progress, the battles will get increasingly difficult.
Unlike Gears of War Horde mode, the survival mode in Modern Warfare 3 will have no wave limit. It is endless, so expect to see high scores on the leaderboards. Let's just hope nobody hacks the leaderboards, which seems to happen on a lot of online gaming.
One of the main differences from this survival mode and Treyarch's zombie mode, is that you'll be fighting against smarter enemies. Enemies that will shoot back at you, flank you, and attack you in an intelligent manner.
Modern Warfare 3's survival mode looks promising. While we can still expect the same action packed campaign and robust multiplayer, survival mode looks to be a great new addition to add variety.
