Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – Details Revealed

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be available on both PS4 and Xbox Series X|S. This was confirmed via a YouTube video from PlayStation and an Xbox Store listing that has since been updated.

Fight against the ultimate threat with lethal Tier One operators in a heart-racing saga. Expect new innovation empowering player decisions through Open Combat Missions with multiple paths to completion and more choices to adapt to the ever-changing threat.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 ( mw 3) is a first-person shooter video game developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision. It is the eighth installment in the Modern Warfare series.

Modern Warfare 3 ( mw 3 ) is a direct sequel to the multiple Game of the Year award-winning Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and this year’s installment in the franchise will take the series back to its roots. Lead developer Sledgehammer Games has revealed a few of the game’s details, including its campaign, multiplayer and Zombies mode.

The game’s campaign will pick up immediately where Modern Warfare 2 left off, with Captain Price and Task Force 141 facing off against the recurring antagonist Vladimir Makarov, who is expanding his grip on the world. In what Activision calls “a new innovation that empowers player choices,” the campaign will feature Open Combat Missions, which will give players numerous additional ways to complete missions. This will include the option to use stealth techniques and equipment for a more subtle approach, or explosives and extra armor to go in guns blazing.

In what could be a nod to controversial changes in gameplay in recent years, Sledgehammer will return to the more classic gaming experience of past Call of Duty titles. The game will have faster ADS (aim down sights), out of slide and reload cancel, while classic minimap behavior will be returned, with red dots indicating when an enemy is firing an unsuppressed weapon. Base Multiplayer health has also been increased to 150 in an effort to lengthen time-to-kill, and many of the player’s chosen Perks will be available at the start of each match.

Sledgehammer is leading development for the game, collaborating with Infinity Ward on the multiplayer and Treyarch on the game’s fan-favorite Zombies mode. Support studios Beenox, High Moon Studios and Raven Software are also on board. The game will launch on November 10 across all platforms. A full reveal event will occur at a later date, likely during this year’s Warzone event in the multiplayer mode.

It is a sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Modern Warfare 2 was the most successful Call of Duty launch ever, and its downloadable content went down well too. It featured two maps, as well as the XP and weapon upgrades that come with every multiplayer release.

Its campaign is set three years after Modern Warfare 1, with some ties to that game. It follows Captain Price and Task Force 141 as they deal with various global threats, including an Iranian general called Hassan Zyani and his henchmen. He is trying to steal missiles and use them to attack the United States, and it’s up to Price and his team to stop him.

The story is more melodramatic than the 2019 reboot, and the plot has a lot of holes. The climax is particularly bad, with the hero being sent into an unexplored region of Russia to investigate a chemical weapons attack only to be attacked by henchmen. There’s also an ending that feels like a cliffhanger, with the hero left in a dangerous situation, and it’s a shame that the campaign doesn’t finish the story that started in 2019.

There are plenty of great moments in the campaign though, and it’s fun to play as an elite American task force. The gameplay is very much what you expect from a modern Call of Duty, with a hefty dose of macho combat gymnastics and plenty of gore. The visuals are a bit too reminiscent of Clean House, but it’s still a guilty pleasure to watch an elite military squad blow stuff up in an annual sequel.

While the single-player campaign is solid, it’s not as good as some of the other entries in the series. This is largely down to the writing, with most of the character development and dialogue feeling a bit flat. The other great aspect of this Call of Duty is the multi-player mode. In addition to the traditional 6v6 and 16v16 gameplay, it includes a new game mode that’s similar to Rainbow Six Siege, known as Prisoner Rescue.

It is a direct sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Call of Duty is a cyclical franchise and with Black Ops Cold War failing to impress and Vanguard’s WW2 offering feeling a little too familiar, many had been hoping that this year’s Modern Warfare sequel could turn things around. Unfortunately, despite being slickly produced and boasting an excellent multiplayer experience, this game’s campaign is not quite up to the standard set by its predecessor.

The story picks up three years after the events of 2019’s Modern Warfare 2 and finds Task Force 141 hunting down an Iranian terrorist who has acquired a set of American nuclear missiles. The campaign is slickly-produced stuff that has players ricocheting across the world, from the Middle East to Mexico as gruff guys yell macho spec-ops lingo at each other. This fast-moving, expertly-crafted action does have some of the hallmarks of a direct-to-streaming Hollywood blockbuster and while it does not always hit the heights of its peers, there are enough flashy set-pieces to keep fans satisfied.

What really lifts the campaign is the characters of Ghost, Price, Gaz and Soap. The chemistry between these three is what makes the Call of Duty series so successful, and Modern Warfare 3 ( mw 3 ) does an excellent job of highlighting the dynamic between these elite soldiers. Despite some rough edges, the story is compelling and it is easy to see why these characters are so popular with fans.

The multiplayer experience is also excellent, with a large selection of maps and an extensive arsenal of weapons. Infinity Ward has not strayed too far into simulation territory and the lightning-fast time-to-kill keeps players on edge, with the pendulum swinging between jubilation and frustration for every misplaced bullet or poorly-timed reload. Adding to the fun are two new multiplayer modes: Prisoner Rescue and Knockout. Prisoner Rescue is a Search and Destroy/Capture the Flag hybrid where players are split into teams of defence and attackers. If they manage to capture a prisoner, they score points. If the attackers are unable to secure a prisoner, they forfeit and the defenders win.
