07-21-2011, 08:27 AM
For those that don't want to go to the forum..

Overall :

The game will be developed by Infinity Ward, co-developped by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision
The game will launch worldwide on November 8th, 2011 and will be available for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360
MW3 will be, just like MW2, locked at 60 FPS meaning it will never go below (but can of course still go over)
MW3 will run on an improved version of the MW2 engine
Some of the engine's improvements include : Streaming tech improvements to allow for levels of greater scales, subtle audio upgrades including situational awareness such as bullet wizzbys.
Framerate and resolution will be the same on both consoles.
Dive-to-prone is not returning.
MW3 weapons have considerably larger recoil than weapons in MW2.
When reloading an emptied pistol, the slide is pulled.
Call of Duty XP 2011 event on September 2nd-3rd. All details here (http://www.callofduty.com/xp/).
Currently rumored voice cast :


Campaign :

MW3 is a direct sequel to MW2
MW3 takes place during WWIII.
Confirmed locations are New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Russia, Africa and the Himalayas
Breaching doors is returning.
There is no Co-op
Confirmed characters : Derek "Frost" Westwood, "Sandman", Marcus Burns, John "Soap" MacTavish, Nikolai, John Price, Sgt. Wallcroft and Vladimir Makarov
Confirmed playable characters : Derek "Frost" Westwood and Marcusl Burns
Known Campaign missions are : "Black Tuesday", "Mind the Gap" and "Hunter Killer".
Known factions are : American "Delta Force", British SAS, French GIGN and possibly American Navy SEALs
Black Tuesday : This level is played by Delta Force operators. It takes place at the New York City Stock Exchange. The title is a reference to the Wall Street Crash of 1929. You basically fight your way to the NY Stock Exchange, and plant a Thermite Charge on some sort of satellite located on the roof. The level ends with an epic gunship battle where you take control of the minigun mounted on a Black Hawk. Click here to view full gameplay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HE049Zw7yY8).
Hunter Killer : In this level, the player takes control of Derek "Frost" Westwood, as he and his squad infiltrates a Russian submarine to launch the Russian missiles against their own fleet. After escaping the submarine, Frost hops in a Zodiac watercraft and escapes the area as it is being bombed and ends up landing in a friendly Chinook, taking them away from the killzone.

Mind the Gap : In this level, the player takes control of Michael Burns, an SAS Commando. This mission takes place during nighttime in London. The player approaches enemies using stealth. Not much is known about this level, except that it ends in an epic chase in the London tube system between an underground train and a car. Civilians are also killed during this level (This is the "ultra-violent" mission of the level that has been spoken of). The level's title is a reference to the warning made to train passengers to make them aware of the gap between the ground and the actual train.

Thanks for summing that up Burnout. I'm too lazy to click the link. But anyways, looks awesome. Party Chat returns, as well as Theater, and Spec Ops matchmaking? Awesome. Can't wait to see what happens in the story. This game's gonna be amazing.

Glad to see Last Stand's finally going to be gone. I would like to see the TAR-21 return though.

Not a problem ;)

Agreed, I know the fanboys like to argue over this and BF3 but truth be told both games are going to be fantastic and great fun to play over the winter months! Now to find me some income...

Just be sure to check back on the web page every now and then for new info. It's usually listed in green text in the original post. Also, if anyone doesn't already know the MULTIPLAYER REVEAL will be on September 2 and September 3 at the COD XP event.

The Five-Seven, you say? Weapon of choice for Sam Fisher in Conviction. I hope it makes an appearance.

I know right? November is going to be expensive.

Thanks for the info.. Sounds great so far. CoD always gives me a good bang for my buck so it has to come before any other game coming in the months around november. (aside from Uncharted 3)

I love the Campaign, I really enjoy Spec Ops, and MP comes in good hand during the months when good games are in drought..

Halo CEA is just gonna be a good campaign.. the MP is gonna be using reach so its nothing i haven't played in awhile.

BF has always had lame campaigns (even though BF3 seems like it will be having a much improved campaign) and im not big on buying a game just for MP.

Gears of war.. i couldn't care less about.

Uncharted 3 and Modern Warfare 3 are my first priorities for the fourth quarter games of 2011. Driver is my most wanted summer game. Ill get everything else once i make sure all my bills are in good standing.

A lot of work is being put into Private match.

Does this mean they're keeping the private/offline/split-screen matches against bots that was in Black Ops?
That's all I use CoD for anyway. Me and my brother hop on and play against bots every once in a while. It's really fun.

Again. No dive to prone. Bullshit. I don't see any reason to take that out. It's so much fun in multiplayer, and helpful in campaign.

Yeah, I didn't like it. I think I heard they were limiting the straight to prone time, to reduce drop shotting. But that might have been from the Black Ops development cycle. I can't remember which. But given the standard of this thread, I'll say it's absolute fact.
