Classic Call of Duty fans are flooding back to Xbox 360 following surprise server revival
Call of Duty Black Ops 1, 2, and Modern Warfare 3 have all seen a significant boost in player count
It may have been over 10 years since Call of Duty Black Ops 1, 2, and Modern Warfare 3 released, but all three have suddenly seen a huge increase in players after the classic shooters got their servers revived over the weekend.
As reported by several Call of Duty fans over on Twitter, the three classic Activision titles have had their servers put back online - so now fans of the classic Xbox 360-era titles have flocked back to the games in the thousands. As highlighted by Idle Sloth over on Twitter, it looks like Black Ops 1 has seen the biggest increase in players as (according to one player) it managed to accumulate 123,952 players online at one time.
It's not just Black Ops 1 that's been getting a lot of attention either, as according to the Twitter user, Black Ops 2 has managed to bring in around 11,514 players and Modern Warfare 3 approximately 79,619 players. Lots of different players are reporting lots of different numbers, but one thing is for certain - Call of Duty fans are excited to revisit the games they grew up playing.

It's not exactly clear why Activision and the Call of Duty games' various developers decided to reactivate the servers. One theory is that it could be linked to the Federal Trade Commission losing its bid to block the merger - leaving Microsoft free to acquire Activision at least in the US. Fans are hoping that this next step in the process will lead to many classic Call of Duty titles heading to Xbox Game Pass, and therefore needing their servers up and running again.
On the flip side, we're getting a new Call of Duty game before the end of 2023. As leaked by a federal judge during the FTC and Microsoft hearing , we should expect the next installment of Activision's FPS series around early November. This just so happens to match up with what Summer Games Fest host Geoff Keighley said a couple of months ago when he revealed that we're getting a new Call of Duty game "this Fall" .
In case you missed it, Sony and Microsoft have signed a "binding agreement" to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation consoles for at least the next 10 years.

Watch this space on Call of Duty: Ghosts dedicated servers
Cloud computing "the new unexplored territory", says executive producer.
Call of Duty players have long called for the addition of dedicated servers in the hope they would reduce lag and other negatives experienced during online multiplayer, but so far these wishes have fallen on deaf ears.
But with Call of Duty: Ghosts, due out on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well as PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U, there is renewed hope that dedicated servers will become a reality.
So, will Call of Duty: Ghosts feature dedicated servers? Watch this space.
"I can't talk about it yet!" Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin teased when quizzed on the subject by Eurogamer at the Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer reveal event in Los Angeles today.
"We're not talking about anything dedicated server-related yet."
That's two mentions of the word "yet", suggesting we'll get an answer either way sooner rather than later. Gamescom next month, perhaps?
"We're not talking about anything dedicated server-related yet." Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin
Respawn Entertainment's online shooter Titanfall uses Microsoft's cloud platform to run dedicated servers, among other things, as engineer Jon Shiring explained shortly after the E3 trade show in June. Shiring discussing the benefits of dedicated servers over player hosted servers, which are associated with lag, host advantage, cheating and disconnects.
Microsoft has made much of its 300,000 server platform, called Azure, which will support the launch of Xbox One. And Respawn is able to use Azure to host Titanfall's game servers, meaning dedicated servers for PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360 and faster matchmaking.
"Right now all the games are using it in the ways anybody would think they're using it, basically: dedicated servers. But I'm hoping there's more that comes from that."
Infinity Ward's Rubin declined to say whether Ghosts will make use of Microsoft's cloud for dedicated servers, but he was willing to discuss cloud computing more generally.
"Cloud-based computing, or whatever you want to call it, is a really interesting territory that games... even the games that are using it now are just barely looking under the covers," he told Eurogamer.
"There will be a lot people will do with that technology in future games. I don't know what, necessarily. It's the new unexplored territory. So I'm really interested in seeing what comes out of it.
"Right now all the games are using it in the ways anybody would think they're using it, basically: dedicated servers. But I'm hoping there's more that comes from that. I don't know what that will be in the future, but I'm excited about it. It's a really cool feature."
Xbox One exclusive racing game Forza 5 will use Azure to study your driving style in order to create custom AI that behaves like you do. For Titanfall, the cloud means Respawn can concentrate on development as opposed to worrying about servers and ISPs.

Top 4 classic CoD games you should play now that the Xbox 360 servers are back up
These all-time classics have been revived.
Sometimes, it’s fun to go back and play some old classic multiplayer titles. But for Call of Duty fans, that has been largely impossible for the past few years.
For years, the servers laid mostly dormant, making it nearly impossible to find a new match. But recently, likely as a part of the deal between Microsoft and Activision to possibly bring old titles to Xbox Game Pass one day, the servers have been fixed and the games are playable once again.
Here are which classic CoD titles you should boot back up or buy to play on Xbox now that the servers are fixed .
4) Call of Duty: World at War
Welcome to the beginning of the Zombies craze.
World at War was Treyarch’s final WWII game before entering the Black Ops saga. Originally sandwiched between CoD 4: Modern Warfare and the original MW2 , World at War is often overlooked, but it stands up as one of the better WWII CoD titles.
While World at War’s multiplayer had its own layers of excitement, like Prestige ranks and tanks on certain maps, fans of the Zombies mode should enjoy heading back to the beginning to experience the original Nacht der Untoten experience that started it all.
3) Call of Duty: Black Ops
When word spread of old CoD servers being fixed, players flocked to Black Ops 1 —and for good reason. BO1’s map design, weapons, and complete package of modes have had it go down as a favorite for many.
Related: All Call of Duty games in release order
BO1’s multiplayer features some of the best and most memorable maps in the series, including the original Nuketown, Firing Range, Summit, and Jungle. And don’t forget about the glorious FAMAS assault rifle.
BO1 also introduced Wager Matches, an incredibly fun way to group up for party modes like One in the Chamber, Gun Game, and Sticks and Stones while betting CoD Points on themselves to win. No, not the CoD Points we now know, but points that were used to unlock certain cosmetics in-game. No real money required.
And not to mention, more and better Zombies experiences. There’s still plenty to love in Black Ops 1.
2) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
If CoD 4 introduced the franchise to the mainstream, the original MW2 kicked the door in and turned the series into a veritable pop culture phenomenon.
MW2 took what made CoD 4 great and turned the dial up to 11. This is the game that many look back on as their favorite and most fun CoD experience, thanks in large part to the vast roster of guns that all performed well, with some notable standouts being the ACR and UMP 45.

This wasn’t the most balanced CoD of all time, but that’s why players seemed to have more fun with it. Things like One Man Army, Commando Pro, and Akimbo Ranger shotguns were ridiculous, but so enjoyable to use all the way back in 2009. And they’re still fun in 2023.
1) Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
And still the king.
Black Ops 2 is widely regarded by many to be the pinnacle of the CoD multiplayer experience. Introducing the Pick-10 system changed the game in CoD , allowing further class customization than ever before.
Killstreaks were replaced with Scorestreaks, encouraging players to play the objective instead of just camping for kills to fill up the sky with powerful boosts, helping make one of the more fun and balanced experiences in the franchise.
BO2’s maps and weapons were also incredible, featuring locations like Standoff, Slums, Hijacked, and Raid. The weaponry contained some of the best in the series, including the M8A1, AN-94, MSMC, and DSR-50.
And then there was League Play, CoD’s first iteration at a ranked mode. While unbalanced and not all that accurate or indicative of skill, it set the stage for CoD’s rise in competitive play and esports, along with the first CoDcaster, making BO2 one of the best competitive CoD titles to this day.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
Black Ops III is an upcoming first-person shooter by the developers at Treyarch. COD: BO3 is scheduled to be released on November 6, 2015 for the current generation consoles and ported to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. For the first time since Call of Duty 4 players can beta test Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Black Ops III takes place in a dystopian future set in 2065, about 40 years after the events of BO2. Even though the game is set in the future, a majority of the black ops 3 weapons like assault and sniper rifles are projectile-based and there are no direct-energy weapons. Since players are elite Black Ops soldiers, a lot of the black ops 3 scorestreaks and perks have had significant changes to accommodate to the new cybernetic bio-augmentations.
The movement in Black Ops 3 has been completely reinvented, allowing boost jumps and wall-running. Maps have been built from the ground-up for the chained-movement system; these changes can be seen in the fan favorite black ops 3 nuketown multiplayer map . The boost jumps and power slides in the game make you more exposed, but exo-perks like the black ops 3 ghosts perk can help you stay undetected as long as you keep moving.
Up to four players can survive endless waves of attacking zombies in the new BO3 Zombies mode, which for the first time has its own XP-based progression system. Expect the black ops 3 nuketown zombies to also make a return from Black Ops 2.
Nemesis is the fourth and final DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts. It features four new multiplayer maps and the final episode to the Extinction saga called Exodus. Nemesis was released on August 5 for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and like the previous DLC packs, the PlayStation and PC version was available one month later on September 4.
An abandoned gold mine with narrow tunnels and a central elevating platform. The treacherous shafts are ideal for close-quarters combat.
An abandoned Canadian submarine base. Medium-sized map based on the traditional three-lane design mixed with short- to long-range combat.
Chinese lakeside village surrounded by mountains. Medium-sized map with a variety of elevation.
Small-sized map based on the Shipment map from COD4: Modern Warfare that's been re-imagined as a futuristic death arena.
The Nemesis DLC has 9 normal Extinction mode achievements + one secret achievement.
Invasion is Ghosts' third DLC update and it features four multiplayer maps and the next installment in the Extinction series, Episode 3: Awakening. The DLC was first available on the Xbox on June 3, while PlayStation and PC players had to wait until June 2.
Medium-sized map set in a rural Mexican town featuring a classic three-lane design.
Medium-sized multi-level map located in an archeological site of an ancient Egyptian palace. The map features a variety of surprises, including flesh-eating scarabs and collapsing monuments.

Alleyways of Brazil mixed with vertical gameplay. Refreshed version of the MW2 Favela map.
The Invasion DLC pack has 10 new unlockable Extinction mode achievements.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (AW) is the next COD game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be released on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 4. The game will be the first in the series to have a three year development cycle.
The futuristic exoskeletons in COD: AW give players new abilities like boost jumping, sliding, and dodging - the exosuits can also be upgraded with Exo Abilities, like cloaking and hovering. Customization options have also been tripled, for example the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Weapons have received a new Heavy Weapons class and there are over 350 custom guns in the game.
Advanced Warfare features an upgraded version of Black Ops 2's "Pick 10" system. With the new "Pick 13" system, players can choose their Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Scorestreaks as a part of their loadout, or skip them entirely and spend the points on other items. All the scorestreaks in the game can be upgraded to have new features, for example, the Turret killstreak can be upgraded to a rocket launcher or an energy weapon.
There are only 15 perks the game, but compared to Ghosts, they are more powerful on their own. Also due to the exosuits, some of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Perks have been turned into Exo Abilities, which in turn makes the multiplayer more balanced and prevents overpowered loadouts.
All the COD: AW pre-orders will receive a bonus map called Atlas Gorge, which is a remake of Pipeline from Call of Duty 4. Sledgehammer Games has already confirmed that there will be four map packs released in 2015 and they will be included in the games Season Pass. Like with Ghosts, the Xbox platform will be getting all the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Maps one month before the PlayStation and PC versions.
The second DLC pack for Ghosts, called Devastation, features four new unique maps, a hybrid 2-in-1 weapon and the second Extinction episode called Mayday. Devastation was released on April 3 for the Xbox and May 8 for the PlayStation and PC.
Takes place in Columbia on a massive excavation vehicle. Behemoth is a small-sized map with narrow paths and multiple levels; the map offers great flanking opportunities for players.
Takes place in a Mayan ruin located next to a volcano on the brink of eruption.
Small map situated in the heart of an alien dig site. Unearthed's design has been heavily influenced by Dome, a Modern Warfare 3 fan-favorite.
Medium-sized map located in New York. The action takes place on a crashed cargo ship with shipping containers, vehicles and other debris scattered across the deck.
Ripper 2-In-1 Submachine Gun / Assault Rifle
The Ripper can be configured as a short-range SMG or a long-range Assault Rifle. The weapon's SMG / AR mode can be switched on the fly, giving the user a huge tactical advantage.
The DLC has 10 new unlockable Extinction mode trophies.
The first COD: Ghosts DLC, Onslaught, offers four new multiplayer maps, two new weapons and the first installment of Extinction's four-part saga called Nightfall. The DLC was released on January 28 for the Xbox 360 / One and one month later on February 27 for the PlayStation 3 / 4 and PC.
Medium-sized map located next to a fog-shrouded lake inspired by classic horror films. Fog features a dark and eerie campsite, twisting caves and abandoned structures.
Small-sized map set on a Californian boardwalk. BayView features fast-paced action with quick engagements mixed with verticality.
Medium-sized map that takes place in a war-torn Mexican village. Mixture of abandoned buildings, a poll hall, and a church offer a variety of close-quarter and longer-range engagements.
Located in a space launch facility with rockets crash-landing into the area. This fast run-and-gun combat map is inspired by Scrapyard from Modern Warfare 2.
Maverick Assault Rifle & Sniper Rifle
Dual-purpose weapon that can be used either as an assault rifle or sniper rifle. The Maverick AR is fully automatic and deals devastating damage at close range. The Maverick-A2 sniper rifle is semi-automatic with decent fire rate and deadly damage from the waist up.
The Onslaught DLC contains 11 Extinction mode achievements for you to unlock.
Extinction Class Overview
Infinity Ward has released some new information about the classes available in the new Extinction game mode in Ghosts. The new game mode forces players to use anything and everything at their disposal against the alien hordes. Four character classes with different abilities are available to help maximize the team's changes in fighting against the odds.
All four classes (Weapon Specialist, Tank, Engineer and Medic) gain levels as the game progresses, which further improves their abilities.
The team should consist of a variety of classes, which allows all the different abilities to complement each other - this way you'll stay alive longer.
Free Fall Bonus Map Gameplay Trailer
Activision has released the first gameplay footage of the dynamic Free Fall bonus map. Fans who pre-order COD: Ghosts will get the downloadable bonus map with the game - a similar deal is also available for COD: Advanced Warfare.
Free Fall drops you and your teammates into a shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse. The map features close-quarters combat that's thrown into overdrive as the skyscraper continues to fall during the match.
Checkout the trailer below.
Extinction Reveal Trailer
Activision has released a new trailer featuring the "Extinction" alien co-op mode. Extinction is an all new 1-4 player co-op game mode to the Call of Duty series featuring a unique blend of fast-paced survival action, scavenging, base defense and leveling.

Impressions: Call of Duty: Ghosts (Xbox One and PS4)
Not a ghost town
Now that the servers are live on Xbox One, I had a chance to sit down with the newest Call of Duty and test out both next-gen versions of the game. I’m pleased to report that they not only have feature parity with the PC version (and thus, don’t feel gimped like on 360 and PS3), but the visuals are markedly improved, and online play is much smoother than any COD game before it.
There’s just one problem — it’s still Call of Duty: Ghosts .
Don’t get too excited here. You’re still going to get the throwaway, “been there done that” campaign, and Infinity Ward’s extremely poor attempt to copy the Zombies formula with Extinction, but the good news is the serviceable multiplayer is vastly improved. Instead of limiting the player count to 12 like in the 360 and PS3 versions, Ghosts on next-gen systems allows for up to 18 players, and the Groundwar gametype. It doesn’t sound like a huge difference to most people, but I can assure you that six more people on the medium-sized maps of Ghosts literally make the difference between an action-packed round, and a ghost town.
My ranking transition from playing on the 360 to the Xbox One was seamless (I hadn’t previously tested it on the PS3). I just logged in, and all of my stats and levels were intact. It also asked me if I’d like to transition any DLC I purchased previously (in this case, the free “Free Fall” map), and downloaded it instantly. Extinction mode (something that has to be unlocked) also popped up on my menu. All in all, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the generation to generation transfer were — I wish it were this easy for every game.
Jumping into an actual game was straightforward, considering that dedicated servers are now standard practice (although the PS4 runs on a hybrid mix of P2P and dedicated, whereas the Xbox One is entirely dedicated). Ghosts does look noticeably better on next-gen consoles, and the frame rate is vastly improved to the point where I didn’t sense any slowdown — both in terms of latency and visually. Little effects are also more noticeable, like smoke particles, sparks, and so on. On the Xbox One, the triggers took some getting used to, having played FPS games with a 360 gamepad for the past eight years — but once I was acclimated they felt wonderful.
The PS4 controller still isn’t my choice for FPS titles, but it’s a vast improvement over the DualShock 3, so I didn’t have any major complaints. I mostly tested the Xbox One version for this write-up, and despite all of the controversy over the resolution limits, both the XB1 and PS4 versions look relatively the same.
Now, there’s something to keep in mind: although the dedicated servers do make a difference, there is a vastly lower player count in the next-gen space. I’m talking the difference between hundreds of thousands of people at once on 360 and PS3 to less than 100,000 on Xbox One and PS4. It’s something that could grow over time as more people pick up their shiny new systems — or it could just as easily shrink, so be aware of that.
All in all, the next-gen experience for Call of Duty is the best way to go if you don’t have access to the PC version. It has full feature parity, it runs great, and the dedicated servers really help make online play much smoother. So long as you realize that you’re not going to get much mileage out of anything but multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Ghosts
The story of Ghosts takes place in an alternate timeline. It focuses on a war between the United States of America and The Federation, a group of countries in southern America. The conflict between the two groups has been going on for ten years, during which time entire cities have been leveled. As in previous Call of Duty games, the player assumes control of several racers who experience the conflict from various perspectives. However, the story is told primarily from the point of view of a United States ‘Ghost’ team, a special forces team specializing in the clandestine and the covert, as they search for a former Ghost who has been captured and brainwashed by the Federation.
Call of Duty: Ghosts, like previous entries in the series, focuses heavily on its online multiplayer component. Standard Call of Duty game modes, such as free for all and team Deathmatch, are included, as well as Ground War, which alternates between Domination and Team Deathmatch, and Blitz, which is analogous to Capture the Flag but requires players to get to portals located at the enemy spawn point to score.
