Call of Duty: MW3's release date is a month from tomorrow, meaning Activision is 37 days away from racking in another $650 million in the first five days of the game's existence. That's like $130 million per hour of the always action-packed but too-short campaign mode. While you wait for the November 8 release date to roll around, check out the single-player trailer that Activision just uploaded to YouTube.
This minute-and-a-half trailer is a montage of gameplay, cutscenes and scripted events in a world-wide tour of terror. From New York City, to London, to Moscow, to Dubai, to what looks like Africa (an area we didn't know about before), this plot has explosions set for just about every continent. It also has a sinister-sounding terrorist to narrate/attempt to justify the evil plans at home and abroad.
I got a chance to play through four campaign missions on the chief rival Battlefield 3 yesterday and liked it. But it's hard to be down on Call of Duty: MW3 after seeing this intense trailer. That's all good news for gamers: it's going to be like having two Call of Duty games in the span of two weeks. No complaintscodplaints there.
