With the discharge of Name of Responsibility: Trendy Warfare III imminent, of us are noticing one thing uncommon concerning the PlayStation 5 model: it doesn’t seem to have a platinum trophy. Oddly, the sport can also be handled as merely DLC for Trendy Warfare II. Remember the fact that it is a full $70 online game. However at the moment, it’s appearing extra like a paid DLC pack, which could affirm earlier stories that at one level this newest entry within the CoD franchise was simply an enlargement.

Name of Responsibility: Trendy Warfare III is sort of right here. In truth, of us who pre-ordered the newest entry within the widespread FPS sequence can begin taking part in Trendy Warfare III’s marketing campaign later as we speak. The brand new entry is a direct sequel to 2022’s Trendy Warfare II and options Job Drive 141 on a mission to cease large baddie Vladimir Makarov from doing villainous shenanigans. And none of this ought to be confused with the earlier Trendy Warfare video games launched on Xbox 360 and PS3 or the remastered variations of those self same video games. It’s all a bit complicated. Additionally complicated: The brand new Trendy Warfare III on PC and PS5 behaves like DLC and never a brand new sport.
As noticed by trophy information web site PowerPyx and later confirmed by gamers on PlayStation 5, MW III is listed as DLC for 2022’s Trendy Warfare II. That is solely the case on PS5 and never on PlayStation 4. The PS4 model of the sport has a platinum trophy and a separate trophy record. Weirdly, on Steam, MW III has an identical drawback, with its Steam achievements being listed as DLC for MW II. The Xbox variations of the sport don’t appear to share this difficulty.
Kotaku has reached out to Activision concerning the Name of Responsibility trophy scenario.
Was Trendy Warfare III initially a paid enlargement?
So what’s up? I can’t think about Activision purposely ignored the platinum trophy on simply the PS5 model of Name of Responsibility: Trendy Warfare III. I additionally discover it unlikely that simply the PS5 and PC ports would deal with trophies and achievements as DLC whereas the opposite variations of the shooter deal with them as you’d anticipate: as separate video video games. My guess is that is some kind of technical mix-up or back-end difficulty that doubtless reveals a earlier report about MW III’s improvement was correct.
In November 2022, Bloomberg reported that Trendy Warfare III wasn’t going to be a full, new online game however as a substitute a paid, premium enlargement for Trendy Warfare II. Nonetheless, in February, the outlet reported that issues had modified and MW III had developed from a premium enlargement right into a full retail launch.
So it’s doable that what is occurring with MW III’s trophies on PS5 is a leftover difficulty from when the sport was initially only a large enlargement for MW II. If that’s the case, I assume Activision will affirm this and replace the sport to repair this difficulty.
Name of Responsibility: Trendy Warfare III’s multiplayer launches on November 10. The sport’s marketing campaign shall be out there later as we speak for individuals who preordered. We’ll see if any updates change the present trophy scenario between now and November 10.
