Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 pre-orders are expected shortly after the 17th August official reveal event.
Modern Warfare 3 will serve as a direct sequel to Modern Warfare 2 and it will introduce a new campaign, operators and more.

Activision has officially announced the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and it might just be one of the biggest releases for the franchise in recent years. The game is set to arrive later this year and if your hands are itching to get the title, then here’s what we know so far about Modern Warfare 3’s pre-order availability. The game is currently not available but we can expect more information to arrive on 17th August when the game is shown off officially in an upcoming event.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 pre-order details

Set as a direct sequel to last year's game, the game's release date is confirmed for 10th November. The brief teaser for the game, released recently, has hinted at an intense and thrilling experience, as players will face "the ultimate threat" in Modern Warfare 3, with all signs pointing towards the return of classic Call of Duty antagonist Vladimir Makarov.

The game is expected to be priced at $69.99 USD for the Standard Edition and $99.99 for the Ultimate Edition. According to Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier and other industry insiders, Modern Warfare 3 will be more of a premium expansion than a fresh new game. Sledgehammer Games is taking charge of the upcoming game/expansion while Treyarch will be responsible for Call of Duty’s 2024 title. 

  • Beta weekend 1 (PlayStation only) – 6th to 10th October

  • Beta weekend 2 (All platforms) – 12th to 16th October

  • Campaign Early Access (All platforms) – 2nd November

  • Full Release (All platforms) – 10th November

  • Season 1 Launch / New Warzone Map – 5th December

Activision dropped a 41-second teaser that features John Price, the iconic mustachioed super soldier from the Modern Warfare series, cautioning players about the consequences of underestimating their enemies, specifically warning against burying them alive. 

The teaser also reveals a stylized waveform image that seems to represent Makarov's face. Last year's Call of Duty title concluded with a post-credits cinematic that suggested a Russian terrorist force plotting to take over a commercial flight, with Makarov ominously uttering the words, "No Russian." This reference is a nod to the infamous level of the same name from 2009's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, where Russian terrorists commit a brutal massacre at a Moscow airport.

With the return of fan-favorite characters and the potential reemergence of Vladimir Makarov, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 promises an action-packed and emotionally charged gaming experience. Fans of the series can look forward to 10th November as the release date for this highly anticipated sequel.
