One of the many things that’s plagued the Call of Duty community for years now is the horribly divided in-game community.
Players who own the DLC and players who don’t are often split into separate matchmaking categories, making the game’s player-base feel split.
Of course, this isn’t good for anyone.
After being so late to the party though, Infinity Ward has finally heard what fans have been asking for years to happen. All post-launch maps and DLC will be completely free.
Typically, Call of Duty games have forced players into buying four $15 map packs or one $50 Season Pass to get any new maps post-launch. Finally, that won’t be the case.
Infinity Ward also confirmed the support for full cross-play in Modern Warfare. Everyone from PS4, Xbox One, and PC will be able to play together with all maps for free.
New content will still come first on PlayStation 4, but we are still unsure on just how long Xbox One and PC players will have their ability to play new content delayed due to PlayStation’s exclusivity deal with the Call of Duty series.
If Black Ops 4 is anything to go by, then PlayStation 4 players will have exclusive access to new content for one week before Xbox One and PC Players get their hands on it.
Modern Warfare releases this year on October 25.
