The competitive Call of Duty community has been asking the team behind Modern Warfare 3 for proper LAN support since launch. Thankfully, it looks like Infinity Ward will soon flesh out System Link with “Competition Mode.”
Infinity Ward announced, via Facebook, “Competition mode is coming to System Link in the next Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 title update!”
The next update on consoles will include the following:
- Ability to unlock all weapons/attachments
- A greater customization of game modes
Competition mode will go live on PS3 on 6/14 with patch 1.15 (read the rest of patch notes here) and Xbox 360 in the June update, presumably patch 1.16.
Ex-Infinity Ward employee Robert Bowling did mention a few month ago that enhancing System Link was on the team’s to-do list, but it was further down the list.
