Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 picks up where Modern Warfare 2 left off with the invasion of Manhattan by Russian forces. You will blaze through 20 action-packed missions located in England, Russia, America, Germany, and France, playing as a Russian Federal Protective Services agent, an SAS Operative and a tank gunner. The Spec-Ops missions from MW2 will make a return, split into "Mission" and "Survival" modes. Also, Call of Duty: MW3 will have the amazing CoD-style multiplayer that you have come to known.

Good news everyone, Modern Warfare 3 will have dedicated server support for PC players!

Posted by on

Back in 2009 a little game called Modern Warfare 2 disappointed pc gamers by removing everything that makes the PC version of the game superior to any of its console brethren. I am talking about dedicated servers. The act disabled any sort of real modding to the game along with the ability to make custom maps, build communities and not be forced into waiting for the develoepr to patch the multiplayer with extra content.

Good news everyone, Modern Warfare 3 will have dedicated server support for PC players! This was revealed today at Gamescom by the associate manager for Call of Duty Digital, Jay Frechette, and reaffirmed by Sledgehammer boss Glen Schofield on Twitter.


It is good to see developers learning from their mistakes, the mapping community will not be silent if you cross them! *fist pumps and so on*

Anyone else read "Good news everyone" using professor Farnsworth's voice?

Battlefield 3 is going to be a really demanding game for your computer.
So he would be "torturing" his graphics card with it.

Good, seems like they're going back to MW1.

I'm sick of MW2 elitists. "quikscope?" "kd?" "ns 360 olol"
They're so idiotic. I hope those silly bugs are fixed in MW3.
If MW3 is released with quickscoping enabled on every single match, I won't buy it. Maybe make a lobby just for dumb elitists?

Durp.

It's Activision. Won't happen.

But whats the point if they are LOCKED(rent only) dedi servers? Almost no customization options or custom mods and no user hosted servers, JUST LIKE BLACK OPS.

******* people who are cheering Activision for truly ''supporting'' PC gamers.

Great knife in the back for EA and their Battlefield's multiplayer policies.

So, it won't be on Origin, it'll have dedicated servers, and it'll have an in game server browser.

I'll probably grab it when the price goes down. I don't care what anyone says, Modern Warfare has been fun.

I find it funny that ebol4 and aidas2 get karma votes just because they insulted peoples taste in games. I guess if you don't like what they like, you're considered to be smart. If you like what they don't like, then you're considered to be stupid. Great community this site has. Absolutely great.
