Survival – Modern Warfare 3’s Own Zombies Mode
You may or may not have heard about the rumors of Treyarch helping Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software with Modern Warfare 3, so that Modern Warfare 3 could have a Zombies mode as well. We’ve said the rumor was false, but we didn’t say Modern Warfare 3 won’t have their own variant of the Zombies mode.
No Treyarch isn’t helping with a Zombies mode for Modern Warfare 3. No Modern Warfare won’t include the Zombies mode Treyarch made us fall in love with. The Zombies mode is Treyarch’s baby and the developers of Modern Warfare 3 aren’t touching the Zombies idea.
But this doesn’t mean Modern Warfare 3 won’t have a game mode which looks like Treyarch’s Zombies mode. We know Infinity Ward introduced the Spec Ops mode with Modern Warfare 2 and with Modern Warfare 3 they intend to expand the Spec Ops mode by including a separate mode within the Spec Ops mode. This mode will be called Survival.
As the name gives away, you will have to survive for as long as you can fighting your way through increasingly difficult waves of enemies. Sounds familiar? According to the leaked information, Modern Warfare 3 will include 5 Survival maps.
It’s not certain whether Modern Warfare 3 will ship with these 5 Survival maps, or whether some of these maps will comes to us later in the form of Map Packs. And because we’re still over 5 months away from the release of Modern Warfare 3, some adjustments can take place.
We know 1 thing for sure and that is; The developers of Modern Warfare 3 did a good job coming up with the Survival game mode. They didn’t blatantly steal the Zombies mode, yet they came up with a mode which is similar to the Zombies mode. Whether Modern Warfare 3’s Survival Mode will be as successful as the Treyarch’s Zombies mode, only time will tell. But I’m definitely looking forward to give the Survival mode a try.
