Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Hardened Edition confirmed by Infinity Ward

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 developer Infinity Ward has released the first pictures of the Hardened Edition of the upcoming COD release.

Outing the collectors edition of the next addition to the Call of Duty franchise Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling released a picture of the minimalist packaging design that will host a copy of the game alongside a series of yet unannounced goodies.

"First look at the #MW3 Hardened Edition," Bowling wrote on Twitter, alongside a photograph of the box. "Literally on the factory line. Details on it coming at Call of Duty XP.” Call of Duty XP is to take place in LA on September 2nd and 3rd.

Whilst the Hardened Edition of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 came with a hardbound art book alongside a download token for Call of Duty Classic, last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Hardened Edition featured a premium steelbook casing, an exclusive avatar outfit, old Zombie maps and a Black Ops emblem medal.

With the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 release date set as November 8th, retailer GAME last week revealed Modern Warfare 3 is on line to break the pre-order sales currently held by Black Ops.
