A meta game on top of your usual Call of Duty experience.
One of the new things in the upcoming Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be Mission Teams, which will add a whole new layer to the usual Call of Duty experience. In an interview with PlayStation Lifestyle, Jordan Hirsch from Infinity Ward explained exactly what these would be.
“Mission Teams is sort of a meta on top of the typical player experience,” he said. “So you’ll join up with a mission team, and that mission team will have a specific set of challenge types that you’ll do in the match. The JTF Wolverines are tied to pretty typical Call of Duty actions like, get five headshots, get 10 kills, things like that.
“When you complete those, or play games for that mission team, you’ll start to rank that mission team up. As you rank that mission team up, you’ll unlock specific rewards that are tied just to that mission team. What that does is later in the game, when you start to max out these mission teams, you’ll get some really cool stuff that you can deck yourself out in. So, for instance, if you’re playing for Orion, they’re game mode specific. When you go into a Search and Destroy match, and you have the Orion stuff on, people will know “that guy plays a LOT of Search and Destroy.” It brings in some cool bragging rights.”
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is currently slated for release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC in November.
