- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 may feature a Warhammer 40K-themed event, as revealed by dataminers.
- The collaboration with Warhammer 40K makes sense due to its dedicated fan base and rich storytelling.
- It is uncertain if the Warhammer 40K-themed bosses will appear in Multiplayer or other modes. Fans should keep expectations in check since the event hasn’t been officially announced.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 dataminers found evidence that a substantial Warhammer 40K-themed event is possibly coming in the future. The dataminers unearthed a surprising amount of details regarding the potential Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 event.
Call of Duty regularly features themed events that are centered around crossovers with other popular franchises. These events are intended to help maintain the game’s popularity, with other popular titles like Fortnite using a similar strategy. Modern Warfare 3‘s recent The Boys-themed event introduced a new limited-time mode that brought a unique twist to Kill Confirmed, as well as new cosmetics for players to unlock. It looks like players can expect similar features, and more, to be added alongside a potential future event.
Call of Duty Has New Way to Punish Cheaters
Call of Duty announces an interesting new method of combating cheating that will hopefully provide some relief for other players.
Following Call of Duty‘s recent Season 1 Reloaded update, CharlieINTEL reported that dataminer CODWarfareForum (and SemtexLeaks) found many references within the game’s files to a Warhammer 40K-themed event. These references include loading screens that feature Warhammer 40K art, new medals that suggest a unique game mode, and references to various enemies from the franchise being featured as in-game bosses. The characters that might be featured in-game are the Baton Jailer, Swamp Monster, Ogre Butcher, and Mummy. A potential release date for this event is not known, so it may be launched soon or not for a couple of months or more. However, the number of references to the event in the game’s files might indicate that Call of Duty‘s development team has been hard at work on this content well before the Season 1 Reloaded update was dropped.
Warhammer 40K has a large following of dedicated fans, making it a good fit for a Call of Duty collaboration. It originally started as a tabletop game that became popular in the United Kingdom before expanding into other mediums, including books, video games, and even an approaching Warhammer 40K show on Amazon starring Henry Cavill. These projects have allowed the franchise to grow into an expansive world full of interesting narratives.
Warhammer 40K games often include captivating stories, which is one of the franchise’s biggest strengths. It seems that Call of Duty is intent on utilizing the franchise’s unique atmosphere by implementing some of its characters in-game. It’s still unclear whether these Warhammer 40K-themed bosses will be seen in Call of Duty‘s traditional Multiplayer or another mode like Zombies. Although Warhammer 40K fans might have good reason to check out Call of Duty in the future, they should try to keep their hopes in check, seeing that this event has not been officially announced yet.
