'Modern Warfare 3' trailer shows versus multiplayer
Monday 05 September 2011
The first full-length trailer for
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer shows a different approach to becoming king of the online hill.
Gone is the now-traditional 'killstreak' system, replaced with 'pointstreaks' which rewards players for working as a team as well as individual displays of supremacy.
The transition to a points-based system is a nod to the approaches seen in other first person shooters such as Homefront, Killzone, and this year's great rival Battlefield.
Various character load-outs are profiled, with strike packages that are tailored for assault, support and specialist roles.
On top of that, there are various player proficiencies, perk combinations and strike chains tailored to each role.
Dropped dog-tags reward players that stay mobile or at least stay communicative, while deployable gun turrets and missile banks seek to neutralize some of the series' more powerful perks.
For all the tweaks applied to the Call of Duty formula, the Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer trailer shows that one iconic motif remains: the use (or misuse) of sniper rifles as the ultimate in close-quarters stopping power.
