Kotaku’s gone live with tons of Modern Warfare 3 details leaked by persons who’ve worked on the game, complete with mission details and screens which rival the best of the best out there.
The full quencher’s below the break.
“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,” according to the site, quoting its sources.
“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.”

The game’s plot keeps in line with developer Infinity Ward’s habit of delivering complex, short sequences punctuated by lots of gunfire and scene changes, added kotaku. And the game also has players take control of several vehicles, returning gamers to the AC-130 gunship as a gunner and plopping them down in a tank as part of a U.S. Armored Division.
The single-player campaign will wrap up what was left unanswered in Modern Warfare 2, and also introduces new characters who appear to be headed for future Modern Warfare games, namely two Delta Force operatives codenamed “Frost” and “Sandman”.
As for multiplayer, two new types of Spec Ops modes: “Survival” and “Mission” will be unveiled, and a plethora of maps.
This as EA says it’ll go head-to-head with Activision’s latest game, even claiming it had a better engine. But as we can see, it’s best they’d keep silent and let the competition show what they have first, because honestly speaking, the two first screenshots of Modern Warfare 3 rivals what we’ve seen from Battlefield 3.
DICE said the competition had better watch out.
EA said “we will beat Call of Duty eventually.”
Of the competition, Activision, neither Infinity Ward, has said nothing.
This fall should be hot.
