Call of Duty is popular among the Train2Game community, so many are keen to hear about any news about the franchise.
If you’re one of those Train2Game students then you’re in luck, because according to Kotaku ‘sources’ suggest the as of yet unannounced Modern Warfare 3 will feature some key Game Design changes. These reportedly include bigger maps, destructible environments and a bigger story which follows on from that of Modern Warfare 3.
“We’re told that Modern Warfare 3will take place on a much larger, epic scale” say Kotaku “It appears the game will explore the lead up to a blossoming set of engagements that could pull in other countries, creating a potential World War III scenario. The game will also feature large, urban destructible environments.”
It’d appear that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 may be looking to use similar Game Design features to another popular game series among Train2Game students; the Battlefield franchise made a name for itself with large scale, destructible environments.
EA has already targeted beating Activision’s Call of Duty with the upcoming Battlefield 3. As reported by the Train2Game blog, EA believe their title will be game of year and ‘superior’ to what’s likely to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Kotaku’s source also suggests established characters Captain John Price and Captain John ‘Soap’ McTavish will return in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Earlier this year, the Train2Game blog reported that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is being developed by three separate studios. A formal reveal of the title is expected at E3 next month.
So Train2Game, what are your thoughts on the reports? Would you welcome Modern Warfare 3 moving in the direction of Battlefield 3? Is it a sign Activision are intimidated by EA? And what would you like to see in the next Call of Duty title?
