It would appear that the partnership between Activision and Sony is not slowing down, at least not when it comes to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Even though it has been confirmed that most of the post-launch DLC for Modern Warfare will be launching on the same day on all platforms, Activision has now stated in a blog post that PS4 players “will have an exciting Day 1 advantage.” No further details have been revealed about whatever the bonus is.
More details will be announced “soon,” and it is still unclear at this time if this will eventually come to the other platforms.
The full statement is as follows:
“Call of Duty is excited to continue its partnership with PlayStation, including last weekend’s PS4 debut of the Modern Warfare Open Beta as well as the recent PS4 exclusive 2v2 Alpha. But the best is yet to come. For the very first time in our partnership with PlayStation, PS4 players will have an exciting Day 1 advantage. More details on how Call of Duty will continue to support PlayStation as the best place to play Modern Warfare will be rolled out soon.”
The partnership between the two gaming giants has always seen new content releasing first on PlayStation, which is not the case for this release. Infinity Ward plans to keep the players as connected as possible, especially now with cross-play coming into the picture.
The cross-play feature will be tested in the beta that starts this weekend, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches this October on PS4 and other platforms.
