Minutes ago in Call of Duty Warzone 2.0, the first in-engine trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III was revealed. The trailer mainly focuses on the new MWIII campaign, which looks to be fairly dark and intense, with references to past CoD campaigns and memorable moments, including the infamous “No Russian” mission. How that mission, which controversially had players take part in a mass killing, will be adapted for 2023 remains to be seen. You can check out the trailer for yourself, below.
Activision has also provided more details about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, including its campaign, multiplayer, and Zombies mode. Campaign will feature both traditional CoD levels and new “Open Combat Missions,” which Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games promise will offer greater player choice. For instance, you can choose to go in guns blazing or take a more stealthy approach. It seems like these missions will probably take place on parts of Warzone 2.0 maps.
On the subject of multiplayer, as rumored, we’ll be getting remastered versions of all of the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 maps (Afghan, Derail, Estate, Favela, Karachi, Highrise, Invasion, Quarry, Rundown, Rust, Scrapyard, Skid Row, Sub Base, Terminal, Underpass, and Wasteland) at launch, but that’s not all. Activision is also promising three new large-scale maps for Ground War and Invasion and one particularly large map for the returning War mode. At least a dozen new MP maps will be released over the course of MWIII’s live seasons.
And yes, Zombies is also making a return, with longtime developer Treyarch once again in the driver’s seat. This time around, you can expect a new Dark Aether storyline, and open-world survival-style gameplay on the largest Zombies map to date.
In addition to all of this, as we’ve reported previously, most Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II content can be carried over to Modern Warfare II. You’ll even be able to play MWII content via a hub in MWIII.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III is launching on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and PS5 on November 10. Pre-orders are open now.
