It is known to all that Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War is going to have a strong connection with Warzone. However, it is now confirmed by Activision that these two games will share the same progression system with Modern Warfare (2019).
Summing it up, it doesn’t matter which game you play as you’ll advance in other titles too.
In order to make this amalgamation work, the rank of players in Modern Warfare and Warzone will go back to one as soon as Cold War’s Season 1 arrives. It must also be noted that this move won’t impact the skins and weapons you’ve unclosed with dedication but just your rank.
Activision also revealed that no weapons will be removed from Warzone. But the only catch is that weapons in Modern Warfare cannot be used in Cold War, and vice versa.
Furthermore, every primary and secondary weapon that Cold War shall house will enter Warzone too. Even though Cold War and Warzone are on a different wavelength, this move by Activision is absolutely stupendous.
The doubt that now creeps in everyone’s mind is how accurate would the imitations of features be? Given that every game runs on a different engine, the mimicry of the sound and weapon handling will all demand tons of effort.
The battle pass system will also be a part of all three games. However, nothing new will be brought for Modern Warfare. You can move forward in the battle pass while playing any of the three games. Your achievements will also be a part of any of the three games you play.
Activision also suggested that a few changes might be made to Warzone to maintain its smoothness.
“While we continue to optimise for platforms and disk space, we plan to retain all Modern Warfare content for continued use in Warzone at least through the initial Black Ops Cold War seasons of content.”Activision
If this move by Activision turns out to be as great in practice as it is on paper then the sky is the limit from here! To know more you can read the official CoD blog.
