Ready to play some hide and seek in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare? Well, ready or not, here the players come!
Raven Software, the developers behind the newly remastered version of the 2007 classic, have announced that a Prop Mode will be available to play in the game this weekend.
Some fans believed that the mode was some sort of April Fool’s joke (it’s tomorrow, by the way), but it turns out the last laugh was on them, as the mode is now a reality.
“Is your refrigerator running? Don’t get fooled! Prop Hunt coming to #MWRemastered on April 1st weekend,” the company noted in a tweet.
It added, “Don’t be fooled by fake news this weekend and come play this week’s #WeekendWarfare, Prop Hunt, in #MWRemastered.”
The mode is available right now, and will be all weekend through Monday, April 3rd at 10 AM PDT, in all versions of the game.
So here’s how the mode works. You basically have one team that’s hiding out of plain sight, and another team that’s trying to seek them out. Players that are hiding will be able to turn themselves into a defenseless prop somewhere within the game, hiding from the seekers as a result.
Now, the seekers need to take their time and find out which objects the hiders are hiding out as. It’s a bit tricky, but there are some aspects that might be able to give the player away.
In the PC version, there’s an interesting twist on the rule, with a Garry’s Mod version. With this, seekers can actually attain damage if they attack props that aren’t players. We’re not sure if this is available in the console version of the game, but it sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.
You can get a preview of Prop Mode in action in the video below. It’s not your typical multiplayer mode in Modern Warfare Remastered, but that’s what makes it so much fun, right? Be sure to give it a try this weekend, or the joke’s on you.
