Worried about the multiplayer aspect of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare? Infinity Ward have brought in some high level players to address any issues the multiplayer may have.
We know a lot of people only buy Call of Duty games for the multiplayer. There’s no shame in that, if you love the multiplayer why would you possibly feel the need to play the campaign? Infinity Ward know how dedicated fans are when it comes to the multiplayer, which is why they’ve enlisted the help of professional players to help shape the game.
Gamesradar spoke to Jay Puryear, Treyarch’s director of brand development in e-sports, at a CoD League event in Paris. Puryear had this to say about Infinite Warfare: “We’ve actually had some of the pro players out already to Infinty Ward to look at the new game. It’s really the first time that we’ve really started, in the last couple of years, really bringing them in, and getting their feedback definitely helps development.
“They play at such a high level. They’re like ‘I expected you to spawn here’ or ‘if I control the map in such a way you should spawn over here. So they really help with spawning and tuning, or weapons and content – they have an opinion on all of that.”
Using the feedback from professional players could be extremely helpful to Infinity Ward, as these players have most likely been playing the Call of Duty games since Modern Warfare 1. They know exactly what makes the game enjoyable in the first place. While a closed beta could have achieved the same goal, bringing in competitive players makes more sense when you consider the growing e-sports community. Competitive players will need to find the game enjoyable first and foremost, otherwise they simply won’t play the new game at all.
