Ahead of launch, there is one more topic that many fans are interested to learn more about, the basics for the in-game economy in Modern Warfare. We are introducing a new Battle Pass system, not a loot box system. See the full blog post here.
All functional content that has an impact on game balance, such as base weapons and attachments, can be unlocked simply by playing the game.
The new Battle Pass system will allow players to see the content that they are earning or buying. Battle Passes will launch timed to new, post-launch live seasons, so you can unlock cool new Modern Warfare-themed content that matches each season. With the new Battle Pass system, players will be able to earn COD Points by playing the game.
There will be both a Free Stream and a Premium Stream of content in the Battle Pass System in Modern Warfare. New base weapons will be earned through gameplay, simply by playing Modern Warfare. Functional attachments for base weapons can be unlocked through gameplay as well just like in the game’s Beta.
The Battle Pass and the In-Game Store will feature a variety of cosmetic content that does not impact game balance.
