Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 developer Infinity Ward has released details on a number of new features set to land in the upcoming addition to the COD franchise.
Stating that Modern Warfare 3 will support a more “COD 4 mentality”, Infinity Ward has revealed that it is to limit the number of hiding hotspots in multiplayer maps where eager gamers can camp out to await easy kills.
"It simplifies it so that the less skilled player has less to think about," Robert Bowling Creative Strategist at Infinity Ward announced in a recent interview. He added Modern Warfare 3 would feature “fewer places to hide, which discourages the camper mentality that seemed to emerge in the map design of Modern Warfare 2."
Stating that Modern Warfare 3 is “all about the high-speed, fast-paced-and smooth controls and 60-frames-per-second framerate-infantry-focused combat" Bowling added that the upcoming release would arch back to the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title.
"I feel like it's something we nailed with Call of Duty 4. We moved away from it a little bit with MW2, relying heavily on air support, killstreaks, perks and stuff like that. Modern Warfare 3, very much [is] building up from that Call of Duty 4 mentality of gun-on-gun, fast-paced infantry gameplay."
With a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 release date pencilled in for November 8th the latest COD title is to go head-to-head with Battlefield 3 for the title of the year’s biggest gaming release and the coveted Christmas number one.
