Modern Warfare 3 VS. Battlefield 3: The Game That Will Piss Me Off Most by Children Playing Online

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (also referred to as Modern Warfare 3 or MW3) is the upcoming sequel to Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It was confirmed to be in pre-production on April 9, 2010 by Activision. Activision has slated it for a November 8, 2011 release date. Sledgehammer Games, originally planning to work on the canceled action/adventure Call of Duty, will be working with Infinity Ward on the single-player aspect of the game while Raven Software will be working on the multi-player. Sledgehammer is aiming for a bug-free Call of Duty game and ratings above 95%. It has been revealed that Modern Warfare 3 will use the Modern Warfare 2 engine.

When a massive amount of leaked information was revealed by gaming news site Kotaku on May 13, 2011, Robert Bowling responded in a tweet stating: "A lot of hype & a lot of leaked info on #MW3, some still accurate, some not. To avoid spoiling the experience, I'd wait for the real reveal." Later that day, four teaser trailers for Modern Warfare 3 were released on Call of Duty's official YouTube channel. Each one revealed a different location, New York, London, Paris, and Berlin.

The full reveal trailer was released on May 23, 2011. The trailer was leaked almost two hours before the scheduled air time, prompting Infinity Ward to officially release the reveal trailer earlier than planned. The reveal featured sequences from combat in all four of the previously confirmed locations.

Everyone is placing in the ring Battlefield 3 against MW3. Battlefield 3 is another first-person shooter action video game, being developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and to be published by Electronic Arts. The game is set to be released on October 25, 2011 on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.Despite its name, it is the eleventh installment in the Battlefield franchise, and the direct sequel to Battlefield 2, released in 2005. Battlefield 3 will use a new Frostbite engine built especially for the game. Known as Frostbite 2, it will deliver more advanced destruction, sound, and graphics than previous versions. The updated Frostbite 2 engine can realistically portray the destruction of buildings and scenery to a greater extent than previous versions.

MW3 should be the most anticipated game of the year? -- It'll be interesting to see how they fix up the hit detection, which wasn't great at all in Black Ops and the connection issues. Mw2 didn't have much of those problems, but had lots of cheaters and hackers. Can mw3 clear all that up? I wonder if they can. And also fixing up some crappy perks from black ops like Tac Mask, Flak Jacket, Danger Close from mw2 and quickscoping. Battlefield I'm not a big fan of. I like the campaign, it isn't that bad, but the multiplayer isn't great at all, I am much looking forward to the release of mw3 and see if they fix up the problems from previous COD games. I'm sure COD fans will look for that as well.

COD multiplayer is popular, but it's still extremely unbalanced. Most of the time, unless you're using a certain weapon, attachment, perk, etc., you'll wind up losing most of the time. Realistic? Not at all. Not to mention IW's lack of a moderation system. Hackers and modders could go by unnoticed to them in MW2. How do you think that MW3 will be different?

Battlefield and Call of Duty have different styles of game play. Call of Duty: Fast paced, quick kill, quick death, pure excitement. Battlefield Series: a bit slower paced (can get hectic, though), more realistic, more team based/strategy, has vehicles, huge maps. Personally, I like both of them. There has been little reason to hide my enthusiasm for the upcoming Battlefield 3, especially considering the nearly sublime state of the game at this year's E3. EA has done everything right with making sure Battlefield 3 is going to be a hit with PC gamer. Battlefield 3 is going to be PC based (ported to consoles, not the other way around).

From the past games, who do you think will take the crown this year? I know I shouldn't be forgetting Gears of War 3. However we are on a more realistic game play topic right now. Opinions, Comments, Insults?

Battlefield 3
