We have recently reported on the new Spec Ops Survival mode being very familiar with the zombie mode. However we have just learned from Robert Bowling (the official source of MW3 news) that the comparison should end at endless waves of enemies.
On a recent interview with NowGamer he did point out survival mode will have progressive ranking, match making, killstearks, weapons and even multiplayer maps will be playable.
Bowling also said that Infinity Ward gets "inspiration from everywhere" yet that MW3's Survival mode will not perform like Zombie mode in Black Ops.
It is the same concept of gameplay of surviving endless waves of enemies however as he points out is very different in all other aspects. Also let’s not forget that the “enemies” will not be just running around like Zombies but shooting back at you with weapons. The degree of enemy difficulty develops to an absurd level quickly as kamikaze dogs, juggernauts with explosives or shields, helicopters and other killstreaks attack you. You can watch a recent demo of Survival mode gameplay with Jimmy Fallon and Simon Pegg playing MW3.
