Modern Warfare 3: Spec Ops Hands On Has Choppers, Tanks, Snipers
Gamescom is underway, and Activision has Infinity Ward’s Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on hand for us to get hands-on with Spec Ops mode. So here are the details:
The mission we played – ‘Invisible Threat’ – took place on a German level with both players separated from each other. Player 1 plays as a Juggernaut while the second player is a sniper situated on a nearby rooftop. Should either player get killed, however, and it’s game over.
The Juggernaut’s task is to approach and defuse nine different IEDs, the positions of which are varied each time. The sniper, however, has access to UAV and Predator Missile style killstreaks to assist in protecting the Juggernaut from assaults.
Tons of troops assaults the Juggernaut, while rocket troopers try to take out the sniper on the roof. Part way through the mission both players will become attacked from tanks and helicopters.
This is the only mission we had access to at the time, but highlights an exciting – almost fantasy – approach to co-op play, something entirely different to the recently revealed Battlefield 3 co-op gameplay.
