What can we expect to see in MW3?


With the beta being just around the corner, we are eager to dive straight into the action. So, with that being said, here’s what we can expect to see in the the latest Call Of Duty title.



We are going to have a wide selection of maps on MW3, in total there will be 20 multiplayer maps with 16 of them coming from the fan favourite 2009 game MW2.

Alongside the 28 core multiplayer maps we will have 4 large-scale maps, 3 of which will be brand-new with the fourth being the map ‘Launch Facility’ which debuted in the 2017 game Call Of Duty: WWII. Here are the 4 large-scale maps:
  • Launch Facility (gamemode: War)
  • Orlov Military Base (gamemode: Ground War/Invasion)
  • Popov Power Plant (gamemode: Ground War/Invasion)
  • Resort (gamemode: Ground War/Invasion)


As the game progresses we will see more maps added to the game with some coming from the latest Call Of Duty title MW2 (2022) and some coming from the original MW3 (2011) game. Along with 12 brand-new 6v6 maps which will be added to the game post-launch with season updates.

Fans will be pleased to know that ‘map voting’ will return in MW3 with players having the option to choose or skip the next map.



Zombies is back!!!

Fan favourite mode ‘zombies’ makes its return to the franchise and being the first time zombies has featured on a Modern Warfare title it will have a lot to prove. Watch the zombies trailer here: Zombies Reveal Trailer | Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III – YouTube

Based on what we already know MW3 zombies looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun, with scope for some mega boss fights and an open-world take on the original ’round-based’ formula. Although this might not sound like everyone’s cup of tea, it gives us a fresh feel to zombies but only time will tell whether the devs have made the right choice.
