'Modern Warfare' short explores series story
Monday 05 September 2011
"Find Makarov: Operation Kingfish," a six-minute short supported by the
Call of Duty publisher, examines events that occured between
Modern Warfare and
Modern Warfare 2.
Series mainstay John 'Soap' McTavish debriefs his commanding officer, General Shepherd, on an intel mission gone wrong, and viewers are shown just how bad things got.
Somehow, Shepherd knows it was a trap - that's because he's not entirely trustworthy himself, as both Modern Wafare 2 and the previous Find Makarov teaser trailer reveal.
That teaser trailer then leads on nicely to Modern Warfare 3, as Soap and brother-in-arms Price recover from a final showdown with Shepherd.
The short was first shown in public at Call of Duty XP, September 2-3, which was the series' first official fan event.
Focus is now on Modern Warfare 3's worldwide release this November 8, precluded by rival Battlefield 3 in the week of October 25.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, at one time expected during the same period, was pushed back to March 2012, as was Mass Effect 3, avoiding a clash with one of video gaming's giants.
