The upcoming Modern Warfare game will be continuing the series' tradition of featuring a cooperative gameplay mode, and Modern Warfare 3 will be no different.
Aside from a new progressive ranking system and matchmaking system, a new Survival Mode that plays out in the game's multiplayer maps. Needless to say, special attention is being given to the cooperative Survival Mode.
"All that stuff really fleshes out Spec Ops and adds in a lot that we know our fans are going to love, some of the most addictive aspects of Multiplayer," said Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling.
In the new mode, players will fend off against waves of progressively difficult enemies, from suicide bomber dogs to exploding martyrs.
The developers hope to invite players unused to the multiplayer portion of the game to feel at home in its single player-friendly cooperative mode.
"There's such hard-core players out there in the online community and you hear all the stories about the eight-year-olds, 12-year-olds and 13-year olds swearing and ruining the experience," said Sledgehammer's Michael Condrey.
"With Spec Ops, you can really get in there and hone your skills in a more confined environment. I think it's a little more of an easy entry. I don't have as much time as I did when I was 20 to be honing my twitch skills, but this certainly gives me a venue to experiment."
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be released on 8th November on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
