Insight from MW3 Spec Ops gameplay video

By Updated on

Last night during the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon some of the Infinity Ward guys got to show off Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, some of the footage was the same as what we saw at E3 2011, however some was new and shows us our first proper glimpse of Spec Ops footage.

Spec Ops is MW3′s equivalent of zombies and will involve you (and if you like teammates) surviving endless waves of enemies, we have embedded the video which shows this footage at the end of this post.

We have now watched the video a few times and the first thing which we noticed is that the graphics do not look all that great, however we think that this is because it is in its early stages and developers will improve the mode’s looks by the time MW3 arrives in early November.

Another thing which we noticed is the fact that after a round is complete players must press a button to ready up, this suggests that unlike zombies people will have a chance to regroup between rounds. As zombies fans we wonder if it will ruin the mode’s atmosphere build up, let’s face it if zombies gave you breaks between rounds it would be a lot easier and would make crawlers pretty much obsolete, which in turn would make it less tactical.

Finally we can confirm that you will be able to pick up weapons which your enemies drop, this is no real shock, but it is good to know as it is something which we have not heard previously.

Check out the Spec Ops gameplay video which we have embedded below, are you impressed?
