Developer Infinity Ward shared a lengthy blog post announcing various updates coming to Modern Warfare, and the first is a change to the game’s playlist. Starting this week, players can take part in the new Cabin Fever moshpit that features tons of “medium-sized 6v6 multiplayer action” on maps like Hackney Yard, Hideout, Rust, Shipment, and Shoot House. Cabin Fever will be comprised of both deathmatch and objective-based game mode, Infinity Ward said.
Also in Modern Warfare is the return of the multiplayer game mode Cranked and the introduction of Gunfight Trios Tournaments. In Cranked, a deathmatch-style mode first introduced in 2013’s Call of Duty: Ghosts, players are tasked with getting kills in rapid succession or else their Operator will explode once the timer as expired. Meanwhile, the single-elimination bracket-style Gunfight Trios Tournaments will see teams of three attempting to be sole squad standing out of the 16 competing.
