Some recent footage of the latest Modern Warfare Remastered update has gotten the Call of Duty (CoD) community all riled up. Several noted CoD streamers were given the chance to preview some of the new maps coming to the game in the near future. During this event, a Youtuber named?OpticMidnite recorded some off-screen footage that show what look like Supply Drops in the game.
Will There Be Supply Drops In Latest Modern Warfare Remastered Update?
In previous Call of Duty games, these loot boxes which are purchased with real money, could contain anything from simple cosmetic upgrades like skins, camos and emotes, to more controversial items like improved weapons with better stats.
Since the feature?s introduction in the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, the community has been very vocal with their displeasure of the system. These days, it?s acceptable for online games to offer micro transactions provided they have no effect in the gameplay. But Call of Duty?s decision to Supply Drop-only legendary weapons introduces a pay-to-win element which is simply unacceptable in a full-priced AAA game.
We don?t know whether or not Modern Warfare Remastered?s supply drops will include such weapons. Hopefully, Activision and developer Raven Software will keep it limited to just cosmetics. Regardless, it looks like the damage has been done. Since the rumors started, the CoD community has slammed the idea.
?bought this game based on the fact they promised it was gonna stay true to the original. don?t know why I even trusted this money grubbing company I should?ve known better,” writes Reddit user ninjaman68.
There are several other threads filled with angry players saying the same things. Modern Warfare Remastered was sold on the premise of being a return to the franchise?s glory days. Adding such a disliked feature does nothing but tarnish the name of one of the greatest shooters ever.
