MW3 - Modern Warfare is back. On November 8th, the best-selling first-person action series of all-time returns with the epic sequel to the multiple Game of the Year award winner Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Prepare yourself for a cinematic thrill-ride as only Call of Duty can deliver. Engage enemy forces in New York, Paris, Berlin and other attack sites across the globe. The world stands on the brink, and Makarov is intent on bringing civilization to its knees. In this darkest hour, are you willing to do what is necessary?
Special Ops returns in MW3 with a bevy of additions, including 16 new objective-based missions and the all-new Survival Mode. Team up online, locally, or play solo and face endless waves of attacking enemies throughout every multiplayer map. Purchase and customize your weapons, air support, equipment and abilities to stand up against increasingly difficult forces and land a spot on the leaderboards.
Earn experience and rank up with the newly implemented progression system. The higher the rank, the more weapons, air support, and gear armories you will have available to customize so you can change your tactics on the fly. In addition to the action packed battle for freedom, the cooperative Survival Mode also serves as an effective training tool for competitive multiplayer action.
Modern Warfare 3 delivers a multiplayer experience that continues to raise the bar by focusing on fast-paced, gun-on-gun combat, along with innovative features that support and enhance a large variety of play-styles. Now, you can truly define your approach with a toolkit more expansive than any previous title.
Killstreaks have been redesigned, new game modes are being introduced, and a gun progression system evolves your weapons over time. Along with new perks, 16 maps and enhanced private match customization, multiplayer has been completely re-balanced and polished into the most intense and rewarding experience possible.
Multiplayer - Strike Packages
In MW3 Killstreaks have been transformed into Pointstreaks, now rewarding players both for landing kills and completing objectives. Additionally, they have been broken up into three different categories, known as Strike Packages:
- Assault - Pointstreaks within this package chain together and deal direct damage. It includes classics like the Predator Missile and Attack Helicopter. Your streak resets on death.
- Support - Pointstreaks within this package do not chain, focusing instead on surveillance and disruption. Your streak does not reset on death.
- Specialist - Pointstreaks within this package are designed for advanced players. Rewards come in the form of additional perks for optimal performance. These perks last until death.
Multiplayer - Weapon Proficiencies
Weapons now rank up through use, unlocking additional attachments, reticules, camos and the new proficiency category. Weapon Proficiencies allow you to specialize your weapons with helpful attributes, such as Kick for reduced recoil and Impact for deeper penetration through hard surfaces.
Multiplayer - Modes & Match
All sixteen maps have been optimized for natural movement and intense combat. Each environment presents its own strategies and challenges, and a diverse collection of locales keeps every match fresh and interesting.
Please note: Playing this game before 8 Nov 2011 could result in your PSN Account being banned.
Along with the return of the fan favorites, several new game modes have been introduced in Modern Warfare 3. Collect dog tags from killed players in Kill Confirmed mode and prevent the other team from grabbing yours. In Team Defender mode, grab the flag and protect the flag carrier to increase your team’s score. Along with six new private match modes, multiplayer opens up a variety of entirely new scenarios.
