Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been confirmed for release this autumn and will directly continue on from where the storyline left off in the second-last installation, Modern Warfare 2, of the hugely successful game franchise. Last year’s release, Call of Duty: Black Ops, was the most successful game of all time, breaking opening day sales records and grossing $360 million in its first twenty-four hours alone, exceeding Modern Warfare 2 sales by $50 million.
The game’s publisher, Activision, have released the first official worldwide reveal trailer that introduces dozens of cities around the world. These includes battles across New York harbour and financial district, terrorist attacks outside London’s Westminster Palace, firefights above Paris and below in Parisian sewers, gun battles through Berlin’s streets and offices and a Somali village.
A leaked video containing game images and audio gives further insights to the locations that Modern Warfare 3 will feature, and the possible inclusion of US Navy SEAL Team Six, the same team that reportedly raided and subsequently killed the world’s most wanted man, Osama bin Laden, at his compound in Pakistan.
The game will be released this autumn on November 8th, 2011.
