Update: Activision has offered up some additional details about today’s Modern Warfare Remastered update, including the addition of women:
The original Winter Crash was PC only, so this marks the console debut for what we hope becomes a holiday classic. You’ll also find that elves have created two special weapon camos that are particularly holiday-rific: Gift Wrap and Ugly Sweater. You can unlock these for each weapon class by completing challenges on Winter Crash, and be sure to search the map to find plenty of Easter Christmas eggs.
Along with the holiday camos, there are a ton of new personalization items available in Modern Warfare Remastered starting today. Dubbed ‘Operation Arctic Wolf,’ this loot drop features weapon camos, reticles, combat uniforms, emblems, calling cards, and more, including brand-new characters, which will also bring women in uniform to the fight in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for the first time.
Activision also discussed the addition of personalization to MWR:
Personalization is a big part of Call of Duty and something we’ve done in the series for a while now that fans really enjoy. But of course, we’ve done it very carefully as our highest priority is to retain the balance, aesthetics and player silhouettes in the game.
Today’s batch includes animated calling cards, emblems, camos, character personalization items, weapon customization pieces, and even new melee weapons. You can craft them with our crafting currency called Parts, or obtain them through supply drops. The choice is yours, so earn as you deem fit. You can also grind your way through to everything.
Original Story: Adding all of the previously announced maps and modes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered update 1.06 is live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Reports suggest that it’s either an 8.72GB or 16GB update on PS4, a 7.3GB update on PC, and a 27GB update on Xbox One.
Full patch notes for the update haven’t been posted by Activision or Raven Software, but we know that it includes seven multiplayer maps – Winter Crash, Bloc, Countdown, Pipeline, Showdown, Strike, and Wet Work – and two modes – Hardpoint and Gun Game.
On Twitter, Raven’s Amos Hodge said, “Winter Crash will be added into the map rotation on any playlist that contains the normal Crash map.” The 24/7 playlist for Winter Crash arrives on December 20.
Meanwhile, Charlie Intel is reporting that Supply Drops are coming to Modern Warfare Remastered. Unlocked using Call of Duty Points or Depot Credits, the Supply Drops will only have cosmetic items.
Hodge also hinted at future content by saying, “I have been dying to tell you. Raven is working on a SnD HUD element to show the number of players still alive on each team.”
