Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is doing a lot to please older fans, bringing back Makarov as a villain and the Zombies mode. However, the shooter is also trying some new things, like using 3D-printed guns to bypass security and start a hijacking that’s reminiscent of the No Russian mission.
At the end of a recently-released gameplay trailer, we see the antagonists about to start shooting civilians with 3D-printed guns. Apparently, this is a new version of the infamous “No Russian” mission from Modern Warfare 2 but modernized
Having Modern Warfare 3 recreate “No Russian” is bound to be controversial, given how much people talked about it back in 2009. Using technology like 3D printing does keep things “modern” in this “warfare,” even if the idea is hard to take seriously. Granted, we’ve seen plenty of merit come from 3D printing so terrorism might not be far behind.
There might be some serious silliness with the main plot but there’s also intentional silliness as well. Zombies mode is set to make a comeback after being absent from some of the recent games and it's bigger than ever. Apparently, some of these missions will be set in an open world with the largest maps in Call of Duty history.
Call of Duty has been making the news rounds lately and it’s not just due to the return of “No Russian.” Older games from the 360-era recently started selling well again after Microsoft fixed their matchmaking online play. Furthermore, Microsoft is set to bring future installments to the next Nintendo Switch, whenever that comes out.
Modern Warfare 3 will be released on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC on November 10.
