In a blast from the past, rumours are swirling that the highly anticipated Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) will revive fan-favorite classic maps as Points of Interest (POIs) for its battle royale mode. The successful Warzone 2 strategy of integrating iconic maps, including Highrise from MW2, Dome from MW3, and Showdown from COD 4, is rumoured to carry forward, potentially providing fans with a tantalising dash of nostalgia.
Information about a “greatest hits map pack” for Modern Warfare 2, expected to release in 2023, is also making waves across the gaming community. This paid expansion promises to deliver a rich gaming experience by offering classic maps from the catalogs of Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer. The map pack is intended to celebrate the two-decade legacy of the Call of Duty franchise, keeping fans at the edge of their gaming chairs.
In a surprising turn of events, game publisher Activision has reportedly switched gears from rolling out a DLC to launching a full-fledged standalone title. However, MW3 could still serve up a healthy dose of nostalgia for long-term fans, according to the leaks.
Popular Warzone 2 streamer, Metaphor, has stirred up the gaming world with his revelations regarding COD 4 and MW3 maps being included in the forthcoming MW3. According to Metaphor, the new Warzone map ‘Downtown’ is strikingly reminiscent of Verdansk, the much-loved setting in the previous instalment. Additionally, the COD 4 map, Countdown, is expected to be a key POI in the new Warzone battleground.
Metaphor’s leaks suggest that the new Warzone map will heavily borrow from Verdansk, offering players fewer open fields and a stronger emphasis on urban, building-based combat. The change in battle terrain could make for intense and unpredictable gameplay, keeping players thoroughly engaged.
Meanwhile, leaker Tom Henderson has shared news that Las Almas, a notable map from the Modern Warfare 2 campaign, will take centre stage as MW3’s principal battle royale map. If true, this could give players a fresh yet familiar environment to engage in epic battles.
Activision has officially confirmed that a Modern Warfare 3 reveal event will be held within Warzone 2. However, an exact date is yet to be announced, keeping fans eagerly waiting.
While these revelations are promising, it’s vital for fans to remember that these are leaks and remain unconfirmed. As the saying goes, take this information with a pinch of salt until the official word is out.
