No Campaign Co-op, No 4 Player Survival Mode
After the success of Call of Duty: World at War’s zombie mode and 4 player campaign co-op it comes as a surprise to hear that Infinity Ward’s hotly anticipated game, Modern Warfare 2, will include no co-op campaign, no 4 player survival type side game and no zombies.
It seems Infinity Ward have gone their own way with the Special Ops mode that they have included in the game…. it will support only 2 players!
Speaking to VideoGamer.com, Robert Bowling explained the decision, saying IW didn’t want to “ruin the story by cramming co-op into it”. He went on to say …
“We don’t do co-op in our story because we’re crafting a very specific experience and we don’t want to ruin that by cramming co-op into it. We take the moments that work really well with co-op, we bring them out and we put them in Special Ops.”
“Story’s all about pacing,” he added. “Sometimes moments get toned down because they don’t fit with the pacing of the experience you’re trying to deliver. There (in Special Ops) it’s all about fun. It’s about playing over and over again, getting a better time – you’ll have a time at the end of it – it’s about challenging a friend going in on co-op and trying to beat it on veteran.”
When asked why Special Ops was limited to two players, not four, Bowling replied:
“Two player seemed to be the magic number for co-op. That’s when it stayed really fun and intense without becoming a clusterf**k of things. We just found that two-players was the most fun.”
A lot of people were hoping for a zombie mode in Modern Warfare 2. I personally would have liked a survival / horde mode (without zombies in it), hopefully people will enjoy the Special Ops mode in Modern Warfare 2 as much as they do the zombie mode in Call of Duty: World at War.
