Yesterday, we reported on an imminent patch for MW3 on PC. Other than the fixes and weapon balancing that PS3 and Xbox 360 owners received a while ago (read patch notes here), it appears that the number of prestige levels on PC has increased as well.
Steam user, Hungaryan, posted several screenshots of what the team behind Modern Warfare 3 has changed in terms of prestige levels. As you can see below, now PC players have to reach ‘Prestige Level 15’ in order to reset all stats. Before patch 1.5.387 on PC, Modern Warfare 3 had a maximum prestige level of 10. Players were able to reset stats – using a prestige token – at level 10.
Interestingly, 10 new prestige emblems have been added to the game files as well, according to Charlie Intel (see image below). Bringing the total number of prestige levels to 20, not 15. We still don’t know if levels 15 through 20 are accessible or not, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
