"Most" Call of Duty: Modern Warfare post-launch content to release simultaneously across all platforms

But PS4 players get "an exciting Day 1 advantage".

As Call of Duty: Modern Warfare prepares to go crossplay, Activision has said "most" post-launch gameplay content will release simultaneously across all platforms.

Content in this context means new multiplayer maps, new multiplayer modes and special ops missions, among other things.

Publisher Activision's deal with Sony has in recent years secured timed-exclusivity on content for Call of Duty, much to the annoyance of PC and Xbox One players. With 2018's Black Ops 4 the timed-exclusivity was for seven days. Modern Warfare is the first Call of Duty to go crossplay, so there were questions over how it would handle timed-exclusivity.

So, we come to Activision's "most" line. What this means, exactly, remains to be seen. In a blog post, Activision said it'll announce more ahead of the game's release on 25th October.

What we do know is PlayStation 4 owners will get "an exciting Day 1 advantage". Again, Activision is keeping its cards close to its chest. Could it be some kind of experience point boost? A prestige token perhaps? Whatever it is, hopefully it won't give PS4 players an advantage on the crossplay battlefield.

Here's the statement in full:

"Following the launch of Modern Warfare next month, the team has worked to ensure that content will be released in a way that enables all players to continue to seamlessly play together. Most Post-launch gameplay content, including new multiplayer maps, new multiplayer modes, special ops missions and more will release simultaneously across all platforms. We look forward to further detailing how post-launch content plans will operate prior to Modern Warfare's launch on October 25th.

"In addition, 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."
