As first showcased after a leak earlier this week, Activision has officially announced a new pre-order bonus for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare today.
The company announced that those who pre-order Call of Duty: Modern Warfare digitally or physically on PlayStation 4 first (with other platforms to follow) will receive classic Captain Price character to use in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode.
‘Playable Blackout Character Classic Captain Price” is how the stores are describing the new bonus. Digital pre-orders also include a Prestige Token to use in Black Ops 4.
Pre-order any version of Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® and immediately unlock the classic version of Captain Price as a playable character in Blackout! The character will be playable on PlayStation 4 today, with other platforms to follow on July 18.
This is the very first Modern Warfare character to become available in Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode, which thus far has been limited to Treyarch-related characters and themes. It’s not clear if there’s any more MW characters planned for Blackout as of now.
