Fans are eagerly waiting for the release of “Modern Warfare 3“. A massive leak of campaign gameplay has surfaced online, showing over 25 minutes of footage from two of the game’s early missions. The leak reveals some major plot details and spoils some of the surprises that the developers have prepared for the fans.
The leaked footage was apparently recorded from a PS3 dev kit and uploaded to YouTube by an anonymous user. Activision has since taken down the videos, but only after they were downloaded and reuploaded by other users. The footage shows the first two missions of the game, “Black Tuesday” and “Hunter Killer”, which occur in New York and London, respectively.
The first mission, “Black Tuesday”, involves infiltrating the New York Stock Exchange and fighting off Russian forces who have invaded the city. The mission features intense firefights, helicopter chases, and a dramatic escape from a collapsing skyscraper. The second mission, “Hunter Killer”, follows a team of Navy SEALs as they infiltrate a Russian submarine base and hijack a submarine. The mission showcases some underwater combat, stealth gameplay, and a missile launch that triggers a massive explosion.
The leak has caused mixed reactions among the gaming community. Some fans are outraged by the spoiler-filled footage and have vowed not to watch it. Others are curious and have decided to check it out anyway. Some have even praised the leak for increasing their hype and excitement for the game.
Modern Warfare 3 is the eighth installment in the Call of Duty series and the third in the Modern Warfare sub-series. It was developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. The game will be released on November 8, 23 for PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii, and DS.
