Most of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare post-launch content will release simultaneously across all platforms. This was announced in a blog post on Activision’s Games Blog. The news comes alongside the announcement that the Modern Warfare Open Crossplay Beta will begin this Thursday on September 19. This will mark the first time in Call of Duty’s history that PlayStation, Xbox, and PC players will all be able to play with each other.
Crossplay is not mandatory as players will be able to opt-in and out of crossplay. In order to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare cross-platform, a COD account will be needed. If you don’t have a COD account you can create one here. Activision also went on to state that fairness and balancing in matchmaking is an important issue for them and has designed Modern Warfare’s matching making to be fair to all players no matter what platform they play on. As both players on the PS4 and Xbox One can use a keyboard and mouse if they choose, and players on the PC can choose to use a controller. Depending on if you want to play with players who are using other control schemes, you’ll be able to turn on or off different control schemes while matchmaking.
