Activision is set to lunch Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on Oct. 25. In line with the plan, the Santa Monica, California-based video game publisher has announced its intention to make Modern Warfare its “best game” this year with a slew of post-launch information.

According to Activision's official blog, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will include next-generation aspects, such as the introduction of crossplay, a first-of-its-kind feature that aims to gather players from all platforms. It will also ditch Season Pass and DLC multiplayer map packs to ensure that Modern Warfare players start from the same line.

Players will also receive the game's multiplayer maps and modes prior to its launch. Activision will release these simultaneously across all platforms, the blog added.

Furthermore, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will bring to the table a revamped in-game economy. The Verge pointed out that Activision has decided to replace the all-too-common loot boxes in exchange for a new Battle Pass system. By this, players can purchase a Battle Pass at the start of the season, and they will have “full transparency” on what they'll be getting and when they will be unlocked.

The outlet added that Modern Warfare 's Battle Pass is similar to what Fortnite has been offering to its loyal fanatics. Each Battle Pass will come with free and premium content; players who don't like what they got can still unlock several others as they continue playing.

Activision's blog said that all content that will have an impact on the game as it progresses “such as base weapons and attachments, can be unlocked by simply playing the game.”

Engadget meanwhile reported that each Battle Pass will give players a chance to win COD points and will be applicable when the game launches on Oct. 25. There will also be an in-game store where players can buy cosmetic content directly.

Activision will only activate the new Battle Pass on the 25th for two reasons. On one hand, they are focused on making D-Day an “awesome” experience. On the other, they wanted to make Modern Warfare fair to all players by allowing them to progress through the game on an even footing.

The publisher admitted that what they have included in Modern Warfare will “take time to fully demonstrate,” but they are committed to introducing a new system that's built on fairness. Through this, Activision will continue to consider player feedback and engagement to help them make Call of Duty: Modern Warfare their best title of 2019.
