Keshav Bhat

Infinity Ward has released the latest Community Update on their blog highlighting what’s happening at the studio and at Raven Software.

In the community update post, the studio has given a peak at what’s coming in next week’s update, including new master camo, Gunsmith customization, Shoot the Ship 24/7, and a preview of the patch notes for the new update.

The new update is set to go live on April 28 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Take a look at the highlights:

Currently targeting April 28 for our next update. Patch notes will go out shortly before the update begins rolling out.

Next week also holds some playlist updates. Modern Warfare will see Shoot the Ship 24/7 (now with Cranked and Grind in the mix!) along with some fun Gunfight variations. There’s also something new to chase after you’ve completed Damascus. Maybe you’re more of an Obsidian type of camo chaser…? Or maybe you want to mix and match blueprint weapon attachments to your heart’s content, even on another blueprint weapon…

DATA PACK DOWNLOAD: Coming April 28th

Tuesday’s update includes a required download for PlayStation and Xbox, about 15gbs, and is required to access Modern Warfare.
