Infinity Ward announces the solution to yesterday’s problems with the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare patch. Word this is this should be solved thanks to a new backend fix. They are also working on a fix for those users who did not ignore the error prompt as they eventually suggested. Word is that though your stats were reset, your progression is intact:

We want to give a status update on the error prompt issue that occurred while rolling out today’s title update.

A backend fix has already been deployed across all platforms, so you won’t see a download prompt or see anything pop-up on screen to notify you a fix is available. This fix looks at two things:

Loadout Slots:

Part of today’s update included additional loadout slots. If you created classes in these slots, you’ll see that they have been reset back to default. This will only happen one time. If you didn’t create any additional classes in those slots, you won’t notice anything. This also fixes an issue where clicking on these slots could kick some players back to the multiplayer screen.

Error Prompt:

  • If you were presented with the error prompt and did not click “Yes” and closed the game, your stats are still intact. Feel free to play as usual.
  • If you did click “Yes” – you most likely noticed your stats in the combat record, leaderboards, custom classes, and Operators were reset. Nothing related to your progression was lost, so your rank, XP, Battle Pass progression, weapon progression, unlocks, purchases, etc., are all still intact.

We’re actively working on a fix for this, but do not have one to deploy tonight. You are still able to play the game as usual and your progression will still track, but please be aware that once we do have a fix, we may have to roll back your stats to the state they were in prior to today’s update.

We appreciate everyone’s patience while we work through this issue and thank you to everyone who has helped by sending us their information, videos, and screenshots. We’ll provide another update when we have more information for those whose stats were reset and again, thank you all for your patience.

Infinity Ward announces that Season One for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is being extended until February 11th:

Over the next few weeks, a host of new items and challenges will arrive, including an in-game Challenge to earn the new Crossbow weapon, more remixed game modes, new playlists, and more in the Store to discover. To make room for all that activity, we are making a one-time extension of Season One – it’s now ending on February 11. During that time, there will be 2XP, 2X Weapon XP, and 2X Tier Progression to help you finish up your Officer Ranks and Tiers, and get you ready for an exciting Season Two.

Season One is now officially underway in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on all platforms for the military first-person shooter. Activision Games Blog has details on the season, which includes what they are calling the largest free content drop in the history of the Call of Duty series. The new season also brings the game’s first Battle Pass, which is outlined in this blog post. Here’s a Battle Pass Trailer and here’s an overview of the news:

Starting today with Season One, players across all platforms can jump in together to play new multiplayer maps, modes, co-op experiences, in-game events and more. In addition, the new Modern Warfare Battle Pass System gives players more ways to customize their experience by earning new content, including base weapons, weapon blueprints, weapon charms, and other vanity items just by playing the game.

The Season One Battle Pass can be purchased using Call of Duty Points unlocking access to up to 100 tiers of new earnable content. Plus, players who complete the Battle Pass will earn even more Call of Duty Points than the cost they paid for the pass itself, delivering a ton of value. Players can also purchase the Battle Pass Bundle which includes all the same earnable content plus 20 tier skips for instant access to cool new equipment.

Got any weekend plans? You do now: Modern Warfare latest game update going live today at 10AM PST introduces new maps and a new game mode to all platforms, for all players. Enjoy a mix of Multiplayer action that you can experience with all of your friends through crossplay.

Today’s release of free maps and a new mode is a precursor to upcoming in-game events, which will bring a ton of free content to players. Everyone can look forward to more celebrations like today along with major community events in support of Modern Warfare. Plus, in addition to new content dropping today, developer Infinity Ward is also releasing a number of quality of life, tuning and play balancing updates across the game.

Uniting The Community

Today’s release of free maps and a new mode is just the start. With the release of Modern Warfare, fans can play together through crossplay and cross progression, and look forward to a ton of new content and the start of live seasons coming free to all players on all platforms.

Additional Multiplayer Map Content

Two free maps are available now; a new traditional Multiplayer map, Shoot House, and a large Ground War map, Krovnik Farmland.

Additional Game Mode Content

Hardpoint

Capture and hold the zone to earn points for your team.

Race to secure and defend a specific “hardpoint” on the map, and then repel this zone from enemy incursions. Several times during the match, the hardpoint rotates to a different position around the map, so it’s worth learning the likely location of each hardpoint so you can react accordingly.

When your team is within the hardpoint, your teams’ score increases, though if none of your team have made it to the hardpoint, there are no points gained. A point is gained every second you or a team member (or a group of teammates) is present within the hardpoint. When your team reaches 250 points, you can claim victory.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare had more than $600 million in sell-through worldwide in its first three days of release. The title has sold more units in its first three days than any other Call of Duty game sold in its first three days in this console generation, and is the top-selling new premium game release of 2019. Modern Warfare also established a new record as the #1 top-selling digital opening in Activision history. With its blockbuster launch, in its first three days of release, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare more than doubled the box office opening of Joker.

Modern Warfare set new records on the PlayStation Network for the highest digital pre-orders and highest three-day digital sales ever on PlayStation 4. Modern Warfare also has become the #1 top-selling Call of Duty PC launch ever, as opening weekend PC sales on Blizzard Battle.net were significantly up over last year.

Through the first three days, Modern Warfare has more total players and total hours played than any Call of Duty opening release in the last six years. More importantly, our players are having a great time playing,” said Rob Kostich, president, Activision. “Congratulations to Infinity Ward and all our teams involved on an incredible game and its spectacular launch. We also want to thank the community for your incredible support. The launch of Modern Warfare is only the start. There’s much more to come.

By Morgan Park @ PC Gamer

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has sold itself as a return to the setting that “started it all.” It’s a snappy marketing line that tugs the nostalgic strings of fans who remember the magic of 2007, and it’s not entirely misleading. The warfare is once again modern and, yes, Captain Price is still your likeable squad dad. Yet it’s Modern Warfare’s moments of unfamiliarity that impressed me—rebuilt weapon handling, ambitious new multiplayer modes, and characters that aren’t the cookie-cutter operatives we’ve seen in the last decade.

call-of-duty-modern-warfareOne of the most celebrated and iconic first-person action franchises is available today!

It’s here.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is an epic re-imagining of one of the most celebrated and iconic first-person action franchises in video game history. The game features three modes of play: an action-packed Multiplayer mode, a tactical and cooperative Special Ops mode, and a single-player Campaign, all wrapped into one entertainment experience. Like many blockbuster films, the game features exceptional cinematic design and it is rated for mature audiences.

The Campaign mode takes players through an immersive narrative that at times requires them to exercise thought, skill, and judgment to navigate some of the issues and challenges of warfare in the modern age. The Campaign is a fictional story that does not represent real-world events.

The main online component of Modern Warfare offers a variety of incredibly fun and competitive modes with loads of customization options. Go up against fellow Tier One Operators in the ultimate online playground!

Enter the world of Special Ops: dynamic experiences where four-player strike-teams work together to stop a new global threat that thrives within the sprawling city of Verdansk, and its surrounding environments.

Modern Warfare also features crossplay and cross progression for the first time in franchise history, allowing players to compete with their friends regardless of what platform they have.

Using a new engine, developer Infinity Ward brings a new level of authenticity through the photoreal, lifelike visuals to give players an immersive experience.
