As we are approaching the much anticipates E3 Expo, more and more info is leaked about the much anticipated game of the year Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. First the MW3 trailer then the first Modern Warfare 3 screenshots and now news form a demonstration of the single player campaign.
Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games organized a demonstration of the single player campaign in LA a week ago, and many more facts have surfaced. Modern Warfare 3 actually does follow on from where Cod: MW2 ended. As Glen Schofield, CEO of Sledgehammer explains: "DC is burning; Task Force 141 is either dead or on the run, and battles rage all along the eastern seaboard." The battle happens "all over Europe, parts of Africa, Russia, [and] the Himalayas", with a give attention to metropolitan settings.
Among the 2 levels which were showed was "Black Tuesday". At this point, players assume the part of a soldier in Delta Team, who must get through Manhattan to Wall Street, the spot that the Russians have taken control. For getting there, the team heads through a Russian occupied building and through an uncovered open street. The 9 Bang Flash Grenade is a brand new weapon that gamers are able to use in this example, together with a sniper rifle which delivers explosive rounds.
The fight proceeds on the investing floor of the Stock Exchange, after which you head up to the rooftop of the structure. The opponents on top of close by structures have to be disposed, and only a Reaper drone is going to do. When the rooftops are cleared, the team jumps into a chopper, in order to have to take down an opponent chopper prior to being able to get out of the location.
The 2nd level had been named "Mind the Gap", set in London, UK. The gamer needs to employ stealth to follow targets. Commonly for MW this breaks right into a full-blown firefight along with a friendly chopper delivering air assistance. Following this, a brand new scene starts from where the gamer needs to sprint throughout the London Tube system on the back of a pickup truck while engaging with a train. The scene ends when the train derails, crashes throughout the support posts supporting the tube as well as collides with your truck.
It is not just the single player that has been the main focus of interest. Game Hunters managed to get a hands-on sneak peek with the Spec Ops mode. Spec Ops continues to be enhanced since Mw2, and it has now received a progressive ranking system, online matchmaking system and leader boards. It's the brand new survival mode which was the main focus of the demonstration though.
The survival mode sees gamers encounter an unlimited number of ever increasing waves of opponents in the bid to survive as long as doable. The particular map on display was called "Dome", a "derelict Cold War-era desert radar command bunker".
Gamers can make use of in-game currency in order to acquire equipment in order to help themselves, like turret guns. The waves grow to be more difficult as time moves on, along with attack dogs joining the mix. These become suicide bomber dogs afterwards, and explode seconds after they have been shot. In the wave following this, kamikaze troops also start showing up. The juggernauts are also coming back, however come in numerous diverse flavors.
Infinity Ward's creative strategist Robert Bowling (the only real news source for MW3) talks up tactics: You definitely have to change up your strategy as the enemy changes up. Obviously how you fight the kamikaze dudes is different from how you fight the normal dudes and how you fight a dog is different from a dude and how you fight juggernauts, they are not only big and armored, so they will just brute force come at you. But they each have their own way of being taken out effectively.
