Modern Warfare 3′s Spec Ops Survival mode was playable at E3, and MTV got its hand on the upcoming shooter.

According to the preview, in Survival, you can play via split screen or online as you take out waves of enemies swarming you which is a bit like a Horde mode.

Killing enemies nets you cash you can spend at computers throughout the map where you can purchase ammo, guns and upgrades, equipment, support, Last Stand perks, armor, auto turrets, and even air support.

The preview even mentions those kamikaze dogs we’ve been hearing about.

Modern Warfare 3 is out November 8 on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

    I love the use of ‘a bit like’ as if trying to say it isn’t a complete copy. Oh well, as if it matters because these type of modes are brilliant.

    Just don’t understand why you would try and say it’s only ‘a bit like’ horde..

    I wonder what gave them the idea to make such a unique and innovative mode.

    Sounds cool!

    Especially with all the ranks/stats that Bowling mentioned as well.

    Anyway it’s clearly not a complete rip off of horde, since it seems much, much bigger than that, so “a bit like” sounds accurate to me.

    The levelling up/stat tracking and sharing/unlocks/killstreak rewards/(possible)team perks/etc in the new Spec Ops aren’t exactly ripped off from horde, are they. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a theater mode in there too.

    Calling it a complete rip off is like saying that every FPS in the world is a complete rip off of Wolfenstein 3D.
