Sledgehammer Games’ Art Director Matt Abbott spoke about remaking the old maps for Modern Warfare 3 in an Intel Drop on the Call of Duty blog. He spoke about how they wanted to make each map as faithful to the originals while making them “the best versions of those maps that people have ever played.”

You can see these maps in action in the multiplayer-focused trailer below that they released for Modern Warfare 3:

All Modern Warfare 3 Modes

There will be 3 main modes for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 at launch. These include:

  • Campaign
  • Multiplayer
  • Zombies

Only 1 multiplayer mode has been officially announced, called Cutthroat, which is a 3v3v3 experience. However, beyond that, not much information has been given. Outside of this mode, we know that there will be Battle Maps, so modes like Ground War and Invasion will also be in the game.

Additionally, there is a good chance that players will see the majority of modes from MW2 (2022) as well as the classic COD modes that ship with every game.
