Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has caused controversy almost six months before it is due to be released after the first gameplay trailer outed footage reminiscent of the London 7/7 Tube bombings.
Having been officially unveiled in the US on Monday before being fired around the web, the tantalising first look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 sees Activision out aspects of the game’s plot including location previews from levels set in New York, Paris, Berlin and London.
Depicting images of an attack on a London Tube train as well as gunfire surrounding Westminster and the Houses of Parliament, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 trailer has been met with uproar as supporters of those affected by the terrorist attacks that hit London in 2005 call for the game to be banned.
Further spurring the controversial views, the Daily Mail has referred to Activision’s upcoming addition to the Call of Duty franchise as “An ultra-violent computer game which features explosions and scenes of destruction on the London Tube and at the Houses of Parliament.”
Is the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 London Tube attack an appalling display of bad taste or nothing more than a theatrical look on the potential horrors of modern life? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
