The release of Infinity Ward's highly anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is just around the corner, but the developer has revealed some major changes that have been made to the game's multiplayer mode, noting that Modern Warfare 2's was designed solely for only one type of player: "the high kill-count, low death" kind of player.
Modern Warfare 3 introduces a new class-based system with three unique classes, or Strike Packages, that players can choose from. A revamped kill-streak system has also been put in place, dubbed the Point-Streak System where players can earn perks through points instead of kills alone.
The Assault Class is relatively traditional, where players earn perks through kill points. The Support Class can carry over points even after death to unlock support-based tools like the UAV and Sentry Gun. The Specialist Class earns a new perk every two kills, gradually turning into a tank that can open up every single perk in the game if enough kills are made.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is out November 8 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
