Unlike previous years, the next Call of Duty game has not been revealed in late April or early May, leaving some fans impatient for the rumored Modern Warfare 4, but Infinity Ward’s narrative directer has chimed in on the rampant speculation.

There hasn’t been an installment in the Modern Warfare series of the CoD franchise since 2011, however, all signs have been pointing to that fact changing with whatever title is released as Call of Duty’s 2019 game.

Fans are eager to find out whatever information possible, especially as the point in which the game is traditionally announced has come and gone, and there has been no confirmation as to what is set to be announced.

Yet, the wait for a teaser to finally be revealed may just be going on for a little bit longer, with Infinity Ward themselves starting to chime in on the arduous wait.

REDDIT: SWIFTNLThere have been a number of ‘leaks’ regarding MW4 but what actually has been true?

Taylor Kurosaki, the Studio Narrative Director at Infinity Ward, responded to a fan who pleaded with them to reveal the teaser for the game sooner rather than later. “Take a deep breath. Be patient.” responded Kurosaki on May 12.

Kurosaki followed up by saying “great things come to those who wait – clearly confident about what they are working on, another example of people related to Call of Duty finally making comments about the next game.

The Studio Narrative Director also seemed to advocate another user – Chris Atchison, Senior Game Advisor at EB Games – in their plea for patience too, explaining that fans shouldn’t get caught in what news might be real and what might be false.

While the wait for confirmation about the next game will finally be over before June 30, at the very latest, that hasn’t stopped fans clinging on to every word or possible tease about seeing something from the new title before then.

Popular YouTuber Tom ‘Syndicate’ Cassell recently hinted at a possible reveal date after heading out to Los Angeles on a ‘secret’ trip. The secret seemed to be let out of the bag when eagle-eyed fans spotted a familiar building lurking in the background of his video – matching it up with the headquarters of Infinity Ward.

While it hasn’t been confirmed that Syndicate was playing Modern Warfare 4, it has been confirmed that Activision and Sony, the two parties who would be likely to reveal the next game, won’t be attending E3 on June 11-14 with any sort of big show. So, any hopes of seeing the game there are pretty bleak.

It remains to be seen just when the eagerly anticipated game will be announced but with evidence piling up, it seems as if it can’t be all that far away.

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
