Strike Packages Make Modern Warfare 3 ‘More Balanced’ Than Ever Before (TRAILER)
The biggest change to the way Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 plays as compared to previous games in the series is the “Strike Package” system. We’ve detailed it before in some of our hands-on features with the game, but it basically works out to reworking the well-known killstreak system into something more along the lines of a “point streak” system. Whereas previous games basically rewarded the best killers on a team while leaving more middling players to struggle, strike packages allow players to get rewards that are more based on their style of play.
Check out the trailer below, in which MW3′s developers explain in a little more depth how the strike packages work. As Sledgehammer’s Michael Condrey points out, the result in a more balanced multiplayer experience than the series has yet achieved.
