Modern Warfare 2 Rumor Details Escape from Tarkov-like mode

New Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II rumors provide insight into how the third mode of play is supposedly inspired Escape from Tarkov, will work and be structured. Earlier this year, Infinity Ward confirmed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II would have a “sandbox” mode, which sounds far different from the usual Spec Ops or Zombies co-op modes found in other Call of Duty games. The mode sounds really ambitious and will probably help make one of the most premium Call of Duty games to date, but Infinity Ward hasn’t said much about it yet.

A long time TheGhostofHope who missed Call of Duty published some information about the third mode of the game, which is supposedly called DMZ, and stated that the mode will be launched in beta. This means it won’t be completely finished and will be rough around the edges, as Infinity Ward reportedly needs to test the experience with a large audience and won’t be able to complete it without their feedback and data. “Something like the DMZ doesn’t become final until the general public gets it. It’s a great way to work,” a source was quoted as saying by TheGhostofHope. Besides, the leak remarked that the way will be “more tactical” and players can lose items they take to fight with themselves, just like Escape from Tarkov. The mentioned game is an ultra-realistic shooter in which players have to deal with broken bones, bleeding and much more. Players can rob or buy weapons and equipment, but if they die or decide to leave something behind, it will be gone forever.

Many wondered how Infinity Ward could take advantage of such a stubborn experience in the mass market game. Escape from Tarkov it mostly attracts a very niche audience and Call of Duty is one of the biggest entertainment franchises known to man. Some compromises will probably be made to make it available, but we will have to wait and see. Although Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II has been officially announced, it sounds like the game won’t get an official revelation until June. We’ll probably hear more about how it works then.
