Modern Warfare 3 To Be On A "Much Larger, Epic Scale"

It still isn't official but hell, it might as well be.

And the details are starting to flow freely. Various sources - who have seen the game in action - have given Kotaku plenty of information: first up is the story, which will be a direct sequel to the plot found in Modern Warfare 2 and it'll be "bigger," too. It's also likely that many recognizable faces will return, including Captain John "Soap" MacTavish and Captain John Price. But the biggest change seems to be the overall size, in that MW3 "will take place on a much larger, epic scale." We'll follow the lead-up to a massive engagement between multiple countries that might be similar to a World War III scenario. The new focus will boast larger maps and destructible environments (hello, Battlefield) and that's a good thing.

We may be only days away from the official announcement. So, how many copies will this new mega-blockbuster sell?

Yeah i kinda agree.

I have thought about getting a new COD for awhile, but I dont like Treyarchs COD games.

Black Ops just seems so...silly.

I love MW though, COD4 was awesome, MW2 was also awesome, so im hoping MW3 will be even more awesome, i might even consider this one.

I hate to admit it, but I don't rule out a purchase either. I guess it all depends on how good Battlefield turns out to be.
This is turning into one hell of a rat race - may the best game win!

Making a new engine? I thought I heard them say; "We aren't making a new engine because it wouldn't be cost effective."

Or something like that, so now they are deciding to? I didn't hear anything that they are working on a new engine.

It'll outsell BlOps. Easily. Modern Warfare is what led the charge with CoD, and the subtitle is arguably just as, or even more, popular as the CoD branding. Honestly though, if they manage to make the story as good as the synopsis above sounds, with a longer, stronger campaign, I can imagine the hate turning away from it. You won't catch me dead buying it though.
Peace.

P.S. Hate to admit it, but it almost sounds as though IW is trying to play catch up to the announcements made thus far about Battlefield 3. I know that business is about emulating and outdoing your competition, but I'm not impressed.

There's no way it'll outsell Black Ops, especially "easily".

For one, Modern Warfare's credibility has taken some damage due to the multiple problems/issues many gamers had with it, whether it's the maps, guns, Commando perk, Deathstreaks, etc. Many gamers don't like Modern Warfare 2 because of that, but I'm not one of those people.

Secondly, Black Ops is the highest selling game of this generation. That is a bold statement, especially nowadays. Modern Warfare 3 will have a hard time outselling Black Ops.

Last but not least, Battlefront 3 will be a major competitor. I'm no a big fan of the Battlefield series, personally, but many gamers are and choose it as an alternative to Call of Duty.

Art o' War,
You must remember that CoD is the go-to game for casuals, regardless of the issues, and the Modern Warfare brand is just as strong, if not more so, than the main series because of the original smash hit. If I remember correctly, everyone was saying that BO would have trouble beating MW2, and look how that turned out. There may be stiffer competition this time, but that's not going to change a thing.

Jawknee,

@Lawless, it's Jaw-knee. Like Johnny. :) I stole it from a NOFX song called Jaw, Knee, Music. Good song. You should Youtube it sometime.

@John, yea it's a given some would like Blops more or visa versa, my point is though Blops had just as many, if not more bugs, glitches, patches, the graphics regressed and people still ate it up. His assertion that people are jaded because the bugs in MW2 is just ridiculous. It will still sell ridiculously well and I wouldn't be surprised if it does outsell Blops considering IW has always done better CoD's than Treyarch.

@Jawknee

Please point out where I said Black Ops didn't have any of those issues.

My main point was that gamers had a lot of issues with Modern Warfare 2, and now started disliking the game. That's why Black Ops sold so well, because people bought the game and went in thinking it will be so much better than Modern Warfare 2.

And now, since there are numerous gamers that have been disappointed by a Call of Duty game twice in a row (Modern Warfare 2 then Black Ops), why would they expect greatness from Modern Warfare 3? They're much more likely not anticipating the game or having low to medium expectations for it.

Plot? Oh, you must mean those explosions. So, more epic and larger explosions? Yay!

Lol on a more serious note, I predict another 20 million sales, at the very least, and if they manage to get the destructibility right, that'll be great but many hardcore gamers will know that COD is slowly but surely not getting any fresher (Black Ops was the most innovative in recent years, due to the Wager Matches, Split-Screen Online, etc.).

Ok, so I'm very excited about that news, bigger maps and destructable environments yes please. I was going off COD multiplayer, but if this is true then hopefully it won't just be a run and gun fest.

It would have been much better if they had actually seen the story to a conclusion in MW2 rather than distracting you and finishing the story on a side story and ignoring the overall direction of the game (If that finish [MW2] were to be the final part of the story then the idea of a direct sequel which follows the war between the US and Russia that had started in MW2 should not be happening).

In short, Infinity ward do not leave us with an open ending that blatantly calls for a sequel, it's just plain lazy.

I suspect this is a response to the criticism from more thoughful reviewers that the basic enviroments in CoD are way last gen and needs to do something new.

Battlefield has had a handle on destruction physics for a while and BF3 looks to have the better presentation. I think whatever MW3 has will just be a wee bit of engine tweaking that allows a few corners of things to blow off.

In CoD's defense, World, there are only a few games in this gen, that have completely destructible environments. CoD usually has alot of random objects like computer screens, paper, and stuff that make some of the firefights seem more visceral. Still, an improvement on that would be welcome.

Funny story, true story, I went with a friend of mine to wal mart a bit ago cuz he needed some things including a poster frame. The girl we had in tow was like "I don't buy poster frames, why don't you just tack it on your wall?"

And he was like "I don't want to do what the teenage kids do, I want my place to at least look a little grown up" (We are 30)

So I asked him what poster was getting this respectable frame at his place and he said "I bought this Black Ops poster on ebay the other day."

I love my friend, so I just smiled and said "Cool"

I hear a lot of talk, but it's the same engine, same graphics, same game.

I don't just have doubts, I plain don't believe them. MW3 is going to be a re-plastered MW2 and everybody knows it. There really isn't any point to lie about it.

Those same 18 million people who bought the last 3 games aren't going to suddenly decide they don't want the new one. It's what they want and that's fine, no reason to make up stuff.

Can't say same graphics. I've seen gameplay footage from MW, and they look like crap compared to BlOps, even if it isn't that great looking. Upgraded engine, as always, so there will be a few minor tweaks, though I doubt the destructibility will be overly impressive.

They may be stretching the truth with what they're saying, but to say outright that they're lying... Well, every dev has to try to make their game seem better so that it'll appeal to the masses. Look at some of the things that were bandied about with Homefront or Brink.

LOL World! I would have burned him for sure but each his own.

I am gonna have to agree with killa on this one. I am going with Battlefield 3 for sure. I have bought every cod since waw and I have to say I am burnt out on the same game in a different package every year. It seems like IW has heard the chatter and is trying to play a bit of catch up on this one. Destructible environments is one of the many reasons I love BC2. (The dog-tags are my favorite lol )

It sounds like IW is trying to take cues from DICE. They are one of the only shooters that will challenge MW3 so im not suprised. I'll be pretty irritated though, if MW3 basically turns into BFBC2, gets all the good reviews and all the money off of a gameplay style that DICE basically pioneered before them. Just for the sake of the Call of Duty name. I wonder if any of the cod fans realize that cod might not exist without battlefield. They basically created the online shooter with BF2. didn't they?

Sorry, no more COD for me. If I'm in the mood for military shooters then I'll stick with the Battlefield series and for really large maps and engagements, I'll play Arma.

The worst part is online, all these pro challenges that they added to MW2 and Black Ops not even worth ranking up. And when it comes to prestige mode, not even worth it.

thats why i dont even prestige. i keep getting asked to do it but i just tell them im not an idiot to loose everything for nothing and i dont have the time to keep getting the same crap all over again. i can still own their team if i dont prestige as much as i can if i do prestige. besides, most of those who reach prestige 10 or whatever just has a lot more time to waste or just go after exploits to reach prestige instead of playing better. when people leave because they see a group of max prestige in a lobby, i own them with one wingman on my team. theres really no point in playing call of duty if you're not playing with friends.

...and if u see people at the highest prestige, u probably think that some/most of them hacked their own lobby. People lazy in online gaming? I think so.

i guess they finally figured out how to squeeze out a little bit of juice out of their engine without adding too much cost. took them forever but its better than nothing. destructible environments are probably like ONE branch on a tree gets knocked down with a grenade or the top part of a low wall just drops after getting shot. bigger map.... more expensive dlc or something and just spreading out building locations. it doesnt matter what you guys think you're changing/improving with mw3 but your community will just keep playing it the same way anyway so it wont matter.

Maybe they mean bigger maps by putting in the same 2 trees between each & every building.

With 5 separate DLC packs loaded with different tree-leaf colorization palette's to follow.
Only $14.99 each

(That will surly justify another 2 million new customers)

To do too much would put them behind schedule, and we all know that Activision can't have a year without CoD. Don't be surprised if the environmental diversity is cut to hell because of the supposed expansion of the maps.
Peace.

I'm going to laugh if one of these new maps is a big open desert with no buildings or anything.

Imagine what the fans will say, "the maps are huge," of course they won't even notice it's just a giant open field with everyone clearly visible. lol

There will always be skeptics no matter what is added to COD. Some people just hate COD for no apparent reason....

It's not for no apparent reason, it's because other games have much higher quality, better production values, better in lots of ways.

Cod is simply fun for people to pick up and play.

Its not skepticism if you have played every type of game on the planet including COD itself. There is no real reason to Hate Cod, in fact, the way they market the game is superior to most and the accessiblity is an angle it can hold over a lot of games.

(dont take offense to this) People who play multitudes of games besides COD can see that activison doesnt care about bettering the game, listening to fan responses (people are actually starting to get burnt out on cod madness... really its true). They never really have. Thats activison for ya and while cod was great originally. MW1 even MW2, its stale. Games continue to get better but cod remains stagnant. So my question to you is, is COD really worth dropping 60 bucks on year after year, when there is no real evidence that the game has evolved? In my opinion, Black ops didnt earn that money. Games like battlefield and uncharted earn every penny, and its developers like activision that give gamers a sour taste in their mouth when talking about COD. They continue to publish the same game Make ridiculous BANK while other devs dont get the dough they truly deserve. Can you really earn something if you dont put 100% into it all the time? Sometimes, but activision will continue feed that and your wallet and sluff off on games like COd that, lets be honest deserve a better developer. The COD fans deserve a better brand of game even if they dont know it yet.

"There is no real reason to Hate Cod,"

Halibut > Cod

On topic:

Do the bigger maps mean more players (doubt it due to XBL) or just empty territory?

empty territory, they've never done servers and I doubt they'll start now which means fewer players.

interesting to see how the IW debacle effects this.
with 3 teams working on it maybe it can turn out to be a half decent game?
MW2 was a good game, just far too short!
so if they fix up the length, add a decent story to it then it could be worth half its weight.

Sounds like they're playing a lot of catch up to Battlefield 3. No doubt this'll draw back all the CoD fanboys and CoD likers who were thinking about getting BF3. Although I highly doubt it'll be anything good at all seeing as how they're using the SAME engine that wasn't designed for environmental destruction at all. Sure, you can revamp it all you want, but at some point something's gotta give. I just hope that that "some point" is when they try to combine CoD's crappy graphics with larger map sizes and destructible environments. Its gonna be one hell of a mess, I can tell you that.

Oh yeah, btw, still getting BF3. Screw CoD. Even with a bigger campaign, it'll still probably only clock at 6 hours (you know, 2 hours longer than MW2).
