Today we thought we would explore the new prestige shop a little in Modern Warfare 3, and from what we have seen it’s certainly worth using this time round. We already know that Infinity Ward’s Creative Strategist has been talking about tokens and other such things; more clarification on this can be video in the video below.
A report from PR News makes a point of saying that previous versions of the Call of Duty games did not offer much incentive for using the prestige shop, but in MW3 that has all changed. Infinity Ward knew that the fans have been wanting more for some time, so it’s finally nice to see that they have listened. One of the major updates has to be the free tokens that you receive for each time that you prestige; now these cannot be spent on all things, only certain rewards.
We are still waiting for the full reward list, but we are told that some of these are 2 hours of double XP, additional create-a-class, and one of the most popular looks to be double weapon XP. However, the biggest treat comes in the way of unlocking an item from a custom class, which you can then clutch throughout the rest of the prestige level. For more details watch the video.
