The battle lines have been drawn. Come this holiday season, the shooter war will commence.
One of the combatants will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 but up until now, we hadn't seen anything besides a quick teaser trailer. Now we've got the first great look at MW3: Activision has released the debut trailer, which you can see when watching the NBA Conference Finals tonight.
It confirms the previously leaked release date of November 8, and it also confirms Sledgehammer's involvement, one of Activision's internal studios. They'll be co-developing this one along with Modern Warfare gurus Infinity Ward. And without any further delay:
Yes, it's the outbreak of World War III and players will visit many of the world's biggest cities. The video shows combat in places like Manhattan and Paris, and both London and Germany appear to be on the slate as well. Last but not least is the voice of antagonist Vladimir Makarov:
"It doesn't take the most powerful nations on Earth to create the next global conflict…just the will of a single man."
Let the craziness begin.
