In the last week or so we have had plenty of fresh Modern Warfare 3 details come out to keep us drooling with anticipation. We brought you a post a few days back recommending that you join MW3′s Facebook page to get the latest news. Those who did probably know by now that May 23rd will see the first world premiere of MW3.
The news broke on Wednesday that ESPN will be the station which gets the exclusive first look at the game, with the trailer likely to hit YouTube shortly after. The event is scheduled at 00:00 – 23:30 which we are assuming is Eastern time due to the trailer being aired in the US. PSX Extreme has reported that the reveal has been purposely planned during Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on ESPN, so there should be a relatively large viewing audience present.
We expect the premiere to be more of a teaser than a fully blown trailer, so do not set your hopes too high if previous reveals are anything to go by. So far we know that MW3 will adopt the same game engine as MW2, with a November 8th launch date on the cards. This coincides beautifully with the release of Battlefield 3 which marches in to action on November 4th, so we should have a real war on our hands in terms of sales figures and gamer preference. Who will win this epic battle?
So what will it be for you? Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, or both? We are always interested to hear your feelings especially when it comes to gaming so leave us all of your thoughts on these huge titles in the comments. What do you want to see from the world premiere and from the game as a whole?
