Modern Warfare 3 Information [RUMOR]

By Dog of Thunder, 5 years ago
Earlier today, Kotaku spilled the beans on Modern Warfare 3, the direct follow up to mega-hit Modern Warfare 2. Everything you are about to read has been unsubstantiated and details may be changed. Don't believe me? Here's a tweet from Robert Bowling (fourzerotwo and Creative Director of Infinity Ward):

A lot of hype & a lot of leaked info on #MW3, some still accurate, some not. To avoid spoiling the experience, I'd wait for the real reveal.Be that as it may, before reading on about the start of the single player campaign and changes to the multiplayer, I will mention the supposed release date of November 8th, 2011. That may or may not be accurate, though given past entries in the franchise, we can expect it within a week or two of that date.

Single Player Information
Plot wise, the single player campaign begins exactly where the previous game ended, with Russia launching a surprise attack against the United States. Soap, Capt. Price and Nikolai, the Russian informant are all on the run. In an early sequence at a safehouse in India, the player controls Yuri, one of Nikolai's men, whom must cover the group as they attempt to flee Vladimir Makarov's men.

As usual for a Call of Duty title, the plot jumps from hot spot to hot spot. After the India sequence, the action shifts to New York where the Russians have a fleet of ships in the Hudson River. You control Frost, a member of Delta Force under the command of Sandman, that must retake the New York Stock Exchange and free up the area for U.S. armed forces to enter.

After that, Delta Force leaves New York in a Blackhawk helicopter and must shoot down Russian helicopters en route to the harbor. After infiltrating the area and dismantling a Russian submarine, the story jumps ahead a full six months.

It appears Modern Warfare 3 involves a change from Soap and Capt. Price of Task Force 141 to Frost and Sandman of Delta Force. There may be another post-credit level, this time centering on the burning of Washington D.C.

Multiplayer Information

First off, Spec-Ops will be returning. In addition to the mission style levels of Modern Warfare 2, we will see survival maps. Survival mode is the standard Horde mode we have grown to expect in shooters, with a team of players attempting to stay alive as long as possible against increasing numbers of enemies.

Supposedly 20 maps will be available for multiplayer, but whether that is out of the box or attained through DLC is unknown. What can be shared, is the name of every map.

Standard Multiplayer Maps
* Alpha
* Alps
* Bootleg
* Bravo
* Brooklyn
* Carbon
* Coast
* Dome
* Exchange
* Hardhat
* Interchange
* Lambeth
* Meteora
* Mogadishu
* Paris
* Plaza 2
* Radar
* Seatown
* Underground
* Village

Spec Ops - Survival Maps
* Carbon
* Dome
* Radar
* Seatown
* Village

Spec Ops - Mission Maps
* Civilian Rescue
* Flood the Market
* Invisible Threat
* Little Bro's
* Out of Africa
* No Fly Zone
* Wing Man

Modern Warfare 3, developed by Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will be allegedly out on November 8th (my birthday!), 2011 in North America.

Yaaay, I wanted to know what the spoilers were but 360 Achievements didn't include them. This is why I tell all my friends that True Achievements and 360 Achievements are perfect supplements to each other.

What I really want to know is are they going to have a subscription model for multiplayer or not? If so this will be a definite pass for me.

BATTLEFIELD 3 WILL CRUSH THIS SHIT. Maybe not in sales, but in terms of gameplay and visuals, DICE has the goods.... ;)

:::: yaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwnnnnnn ::::: I'll just assume that more than half those mp maps will be cut from the game and then be over priced DLC. No thanks Activition those who know will be on the Battlefield in a different game, a better game, a game thats not a constant retread of the same game you've been putting out for years now.

I am genuinely looking forward to this game. Okay so Call of Duty isn't as cool as it used to be and the story is a bit far-fetched but its a lot of fun and you can bet all your money it will look fantastic. Looking forward to this is a bit like waiting for a film in the cinema. You eagerly await it and enjoy the short experience while it lasted and then speak about with your friends for the next couple of weeks until something more substantial comes out worthy of attention. Not interested in Battlefield 3 because that looks like just another shooter. Having just finished Black Ops I just want another fun, if somewhat silly, game that makes me smile and the likes. Call of Duty is a franchise I trust and given the incredibly high standard of all the games I will probably continue to buy them for years.

As long as they keep the Modern Warfare 2 feel I'm happy. Black Ops was a let down multiplayer wise. =/

The larger environments could be interesting (longer missions and different ways to go about them??), and the fact that single player and multiplayer are being done by different devs could improve the game from the last few offerings - it could actually be a story, and not be run there, shoot people, run there, shoot people, run there, shoot people, etc.

I'd like some more information before I say that it'll terrible or great, but I am already liking that Price and Soap will be returning.

Sounds all pretty standard stuff really so far, i'm sure it will be decent and solid, like all the CoD games are, and i'm also sure that it will sell like ice cream in hell, no matter what anyone says about it pre-release
