After the news about the release of Activision’s new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, lots of questions have been loaded in people’s minds about the new incoming game. To make it easier for you and to clear all the questions out we have compiled a simple list which you can take a look at:

1. Publisher: Activision 2. Developer: Infinity Ward 3. Release Date: November 8, 2011 4. ESRB: Rating Pending 5. Platforms: Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox360 and Computer (PC)

6. Game Details: There is still not much information available about the game and no gameplay has been seen yet. The last thing that was seen was the trailer only. However, bit information that has been leaked suggests the following:[INDENT]‘The game opens moments after the cliffhanger ending of Modern Warfare 2 with the U.S. struggling to stave off a surprise Russian attack. The single-player campaign will ping-pong players around the world as they take on the multiple throwaway roles as a Russian Federal Protective Services agent, SAS Operative, tank gunner, and AC-130 gunner as well as key characters from previous installments and new recurring characters. The game will feature about 15 missions, kicking off with the invasion of Manhattan by a Russian force and wrapping up with a final encounter in Dubai.’

[/INDENT]The game will come with the ability to interact with various vehicles including AC-130 gunship and a tank in US Armored Division. The single-player campaign will be largely based on the different unanswered questions that were left out during the previous editions of Modern Warfare and we now will have two new characters namely “Frost” and “Sandman”. Also in the multiplayer area will have two types of Special Ops called Survival and Mission.

The following are the different places which you will encounter during your game:

  • Dharmasala, India
  • New York, New York
  • A plane transporting the president of Russia
  • A town in Sierra Leone
  • London, England
  • Mogadishu, Somalia
  • Hamburg, Germany
  • Paris, France
  • Prague, Czech Republic
  • A castle in the Czech mountains
  • Berlin, Germany
  • The Kremlin in Moscow, Russia
  • Dubai, United Arab Emirates
  • Washington. D.C.

7. Trailers: For those of you who might have missed out the teaser trailer for the incoming game can take a look at the video below: YouTube - ‪Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - America Teaser‬‏

8. Pre-order information: The game is currently available for pre-order at Amazon for $59.99. However, no further information has been given about the product that almost every gamer waits for. You can click here to pre-order your game now.

9. Twist in the tail: On the other hand to twist things around, FourZeroTwo has recently tweeted people to keep control of themselves and to wait for the final version since not all the information leaked out is correct.

It’s quite sure that this product by Activision won’t be a letdown either just like the previous Modern Warfare versions have turned out to be.

Kind of misleading calling the developer Infinity Ward after Activision was responsible for totally annihilating the original team. The top 4 guys are no longer with IW, and all total, nearly 50 employees left. In a scant few days (6/14/11) the trial date is set for the lawsuit the former IW employees are pursuing against Activision, which will decide whether Activision has to fork over the unpaid royalties for Modern Warfare 2, who's lying about Kotich alleging that West and Zampella were guilty of a breach of contract by speaking to other publishers (EA), and whom will get the creative rights to the Modern Warfare franchise.

In short, THESE are the things people need to know.

The developer is just Infinity Ward? I thought Sledgehammer was co-developing with them?

Dubai FTW. =p

Not many graphical changes or really any changes from MW2. I'll probably still buy, but it's annoying how Call of Duty has been essentially the same game since MW1.

Also, no dinosaurs? WHERE ARE THE DINOSAURS DAMNIT

[SIZE="3"]Disclaimer: Personal opinion are not endorsed by Gamefront.[/SIZE]

I'm just a gamer sick of this publisher and how it's destroying the industry by setting bad examples and showing other publishers that you can milk blind fanboys for anything, screwing the consumer in the process by making gaming very expensive. They're not totally at fault for the increasing AAA publisher greed, but I see them as a massive drive, and thus a malignant cancer in the industry that'll kill the industry eventually. I may be wrong, but I hope I'm not.

Anywho,

1. Publisher: Activision The Greediest Publisher Ever. 2.

ESRB: Rating Pending 5. Platforms: Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox360 and Computer (PC). Other platforms to receive inferior copies. The PC isn't even the target demographic for this game even though this game started as a PC title.

It’s quite sure that this product by Activision Nazivision won’t be a letdown either just like the previous Modern Warfare versions have turned out to be. Overhyped one way or another.

Fixed the description to more accurately represent what's really going on: Activision milking it's fanbase and emaciating its final cash cow into extinction.

Forgive me for posting this, but I wish this nightmare would end. That's all. Nothing else. I want to go back to playing games instead of boycotting them because some greedy asshole wants to suck me dry.

EDIT:

Also, no dinosaurs? WHERE ARE THE DINOSAURS DAMNIT

:agreed

Also, I might as well not speak my opinion as it'll just fall on deaf ears like it has for the past two years. *sigh*

In short, THESE are the things people need to know.

I just hope whoever gets their hands on the full rights to the franchise will stop trying to milk the people that buy their games, and put an effort into improving the quality of their games.

Call of Duty being a AAA title should be a major embarrassment to other gaming publishers that follow by their design. They should strive to not only produce quality content, but to actually produce different content with each release.

Modern Warfare has a great story going for it, but that $60 price tag on it really pushes me away from buying any of their games, because, for that very reason, it is more like an expansion, than a full game.

Those are just my opinions, anyways. Take them with a grain of salt.

The Call of Duty name is not up for grabs in the lawsuit, it's the Modern Warfare title. It would be nice if the entire franchise name was up for grabs since it was IW's baby from the start. In fact, I believe that the only way the CoD franchise will survive is if it was taken away from Activision. The yearly release crap may end, and the game may or may not be better in the long run. As things stand now, CoD is going to die very soon from milking. The only positive thing about this is that once CoD dies, Activision will have no other AAA franchises left to exploit, so they'll stop bringing in massive profits yearly unless they bring in a new franchise to exploit (Spyro, perhaps? Maybe Prototype? Bungie's new IP?).

Call of Duty being a AAA title should be a major embarrassment to other gaming publishers that follow by their design. They should strive to not only produce quality content, but to actually produce different content with each release.

Publishers don't function that way. They're job is to sell games and make as much money as possible, and when they see someone making a ton of money off of a proven formula, they'll seek to imitate it and slap a franchise name on it in hopes of striking it rich themselves. It's the easiest way for them to be successful. Maximum profit with minimum investment.

This is exactly why I don't like game publishers (except a few). They're nothing but businesses like toilet paper distributors or food distributors. Same goal, different product. In fact, some heads in the publishers came from different industries.

Honestly, I can't be mad at publishers trying to turn a profit. That's business survival 101. It's the ones that made F's in Business Ethics class that I don't like. In other words, profiting through unethical means.

I know this rant is off-topic, but this is my yearly response to CoD hype now. It's not longer "Yay! New CoD!" It's "Sigh. More greedy publisher BS."

Killer Kyle;5517100The Call of Duty name is not up for grabs in the lawsuit, it's the Modern Warfare title.

..and that's the context in which I referred to it.

They can turn a profit all they like, but don't fuck with the developers if they want to try something different. I doubt all game designers think "If I make this linear, it will be great!" They more likely than not, do it so the franchise will sell, so they can keep their job. That's not good.

Exactly. It's another reason many publishers are bad.
