The lights are on
Activision has released a video covering the changes to Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer mode. Kill streaks are now referred to as point streaks, and the video explains why. Players now receive streak credit for things beyond just kills, in an attempt to cater to different styles of players. The video also looks at the new types of Strike Packages.
The Assault strike package seems to be the traditional Call of Duty package, heavily rewarding those who gain kills without dying. The Support strike package caters to those interested in helping others out. Streaks don't reset on death, and you get access to items like sentry drones and other support type weapons. The Specialist strike package has the player begin with three perks, and for every two kills a new perk is unlocked. By the time you have eight kills, you have all the perks and are a super-powered soldier. Check out the video below to get all the details.
It seems like Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer will feel a bit different than previous entries. Is this a good thing? Or do you want the developers to simply stick to what has already been working?
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 releases for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Nintendo Wii on November 8.
