What to expect from Call of Duty: Next
We already know plenty about Modern Warfare 3, and COD: Next will happen just before the first round of the game’s public betas begins, letting PlayStation players have a go at the new game’s multiplayer ahead of release.
These betas are often drastically different from the final release despite the short turnaround, as new mechanics are tested and tweaked to ensure that nothing outrageously unbalanced makes it to the launch version.
So, we know that COD: Next will feature a multiplayer showcase for MW3, but it’ll also be our first proper look at the new version of Zombies coming with the game, which promises an open world map and multiple squads in one game.
Call of Duty: Warzone‘s next version will also be shown off, and we’re expecting a new map to take a look at – although because this will happen a little after MW3’s launch, Next might not go into too much detail on that.
Finally, Warzone Mobile is also going to be showcased again, which is no surprise given that we’ve been waiting absolutely ages for the mobile shooter to come out of its testing phase and get a wide release.
