Report article RSS Feed Modern Warfare 3 to have Dedicated Servers

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

Posted by Henley on Aug 17th, 2011

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*

The only COD I ever truly enjoyed was COD1. Good times, good times... Absolutely epic campaign. (That was lengthy and hard without being boring)

I bought COD5 as well for the PC, and downloaded patches/mappacks for free. Until they realized that there was yet another way to make money. Steam anyone?

Either way I'm not getting BF 3 or COD7 (or is it 8? I've honestly forgotten) COD is becoming the same game every year. BF I must say is doing a rather good job of keeping things different (WWII, Vietnam, Modern, Future, etc.) but they dropped offline bot support featured in all the other games so I won't be buying it either seeing as my internet isn't up to par where I live. COD? Nope... Already have 2 games like it but thanks anyway. Red Orchestra 2 anyone? Definitely more of a single player geared game (for one it's PC-only which means they spend less time catering to map packs and more time towards initial content, single player is likely to be a lot better to for some reason, most console games are obviously supposed to be played online). But if my internet was Cable I would certainly get BF3.

Red Orchestra 2 is NOT a single player geared game... It's a multiplayer geared game with an SP component

This is true, RO has campaign with bots basically from what i've read about the new one. It is single player support though, which is always nice to have.

Who cares if they have dedicated servers, they are going to be from "Trusted Hosts" only, which makes it as good as useless.

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.

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.
