patch brings giant infection and

As Infinity Ward has been criticized in the past for capitalizing on tragic events like the Australia Forest Fires, only to turn around and apologize plus launch a large scale charity project supported in a small way by micro-transactions. Well, take this example of today’s update bringing in “Giant Infection” mode AKA Ground War Infected with 48 players and only 1 can survive as the ultimate winner, if they dare.

RealGamerNewZ Editor-In-Chief and GamersPrey joined up to try the new Giant Infection mode this morning and had some funny experiences in the game as zombies resort to group text chats to team up against the survivors. GamersPrey ended up being the final survivor and won the round in an epic showdown that had others fuming with some hilarious action to be seen there. But that’s not all the newest patch has provided gamers with.

While we are still waiting for the Battle Royale genre to make its way into the Call of Duty Modern Warfare cross-play game, it looks like Call of Duty Warzone could arrive by March 3 or March 10. We expect to hear more info about that soon, although it could have been planned originally as a shadow drop, given the way Activision is going against the leakers who merely showed item descriptions.

Infinity Ward, currently, operates on this schedule:

  • Tuesday – Playlist updates
  • Thursday – Developer diary and/or behind the scenes blog
  • Friday – Community Update blog

Time will tell and we won’t have to wait long for more Warzone info, but for now Giant Infection sees 48 players face off in Infected mode with a Ground War map and game world size. This unprecedented Infected match size is based on the classic player-made mod which hackers would create as “infected lobbies” which spread as well. This was seen as a glitch that was too fun to patch out, and Infinity Ward eventually adopted the ruleset into their own game mode paying tribute to the fans who made the original mod.
