As the game progresses and you win more in-game rewards, you can collect iconic Call of Duty characters like John "Soap" MacTavish and Simon "Ghost" Riley from the Modern Warfare series. Black Ops series' Alex Mason will also be up for unlocking. During the game, you'll play in different maps including the familiar Hijacked and Nuketown. Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Search & Destroy are some of the popular COD experiences that will be part of the game.
