Modern Warfare 3 Preview
After the major blowout between the Call of Duty creators Vince Zampella and Jason West, Infinity Ward was really hurting because many of their members left with them. However, Infinity Ward is back and ready for action with the help of Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software. Hopefully all of the drama caused by Zampella and West’s departures will not keep this studio from making a great game for their storied franchise.
This game will resume where the plot left off after Modern Warfare 2. Russia’s forces are still attempting to invade America, but now their conquest has spread to many other locales around the world. Confirmed locations are England, France, Germany, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Moscow, and Dubai.
The game will also feature a few returning characters, namely Captain MacTavish, Captain Price, and Wallcroft who was only in the first Modern Warfare. The characters that are new to the franchise are Frost and Sandman, two Delta Force soldiers; Sergeant Marcus Burns; and Yuri, a Russian security agent.
All these characters will be playable in different sections of the game just like the previous protagonists in the earlier entries of the series.
If the gameplay videos are any indication of how this game will play, it will control exactly like all of the Call of Duty games. This is your standard military first-person shooter, and as sales have shown, this is many gamers’ cup of tea. The Call of Duty series has continually shown that, even with a yearly release, that it stays relevant and that people love the series.
Infinity Ward hopes to be even more loved by fans by implementing a few changes that will open up doors to new fans. One of their more prominent changes is the addition of the Survival Mode. It is a standard wave mode like Halo’s Firefight and the non-Modern Warfare Call of Duty’s Nazi Zombies. However, the Survival Mode is able to take place on all of the multiplayer maps and the spawn points of the enemies are not fixed to certain points.
In the case of the competitive multiplayer mode, Infinity Ward is revamping the whole killstreak system, and the progression system. They are also re-balancing the multiplayer by removing certain perks. Infinity Ward wants the multiplayer to be based on the players’ skills and not on their perks.
Another change that will add a whole different dimension for the series is the Call of Duty Elite service. This service will have subscription and will allow players to see their statistics across the Call of Duty games and it will also feature Call of Duty based programs.
With all of these revisions, Infinity Ward is looking to surpass all of the doubts that have surrounded their company and show the gaming community that they are still alive and kicking.
