5 'amazing' new settings for Modern Warfare 3... if the developers have totally run out of ideas

If recent moist and juicy interweb rumours are to be believed, the next Modern Warfare could well be a prequel, starring ‘cockerney’ badass and all-round unluckiest soldier on Earth, Ghost. While that does sound intriguing, we thought we’d suggest five ‘brilliant’, in no way urine-extracting ideas for Infinity Ward’s next COD. Well, if Infinity Ward makes another entry in the series, that is. Keep on reading for a glimpse at what Modern Warfare would be like if it was set in space, during the American Civil War or if you just want to see Captain Price in a mankini.

Callz of Dutyz Babyz

The idea of going back in time and telling the origin story of Ghost is fine and all. But what’s infinitely more amazing is going back even further and telling the story of all your favourite COD veterans when they were still in diapers. Join little John Price and Soap MacTavish as they dish out the most brutal justice war-torn sandboxes have ever seen.

Call of Duty: Civil Warfare

Set during 1860s America, you play as a Union soldier, fighting Confederate troops with old timey guns, old timey swords and historically suspect old timey smoke grenades. Relive some of the American Civil War’s bloodiest conflicts, including the Battle of Fort Sumter and the Second Battle of Sabine Pass. COD fans should also look out for a special John Wilkes Booth DLC pack, which will let players murder the presidential crap out of Abe Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre.

Modern Intergalactic Warfare

Are you tired of all those gritty pitch battles in the streets of fictional Middle Eastern countries? Does the idea of storming another Russian prison send you into cold sweats of fear? Do you long for your favourite realistic military shooter to spectacularly jump the shark? Well, you’ll no doubt approve of Modern Intergalactic Warfare. Set on such awesome planets as Mars, Jupiter and Uranus (no laughing in the back), you’ll team up with Captain Price to wipe out a sickening race of phone-obsessed extraterrestrials. Better call 911, ET. John Price is about to go homicidal on your adorable ass.

Night of the Living Warfare

Just in case Infinity Ward (or whoever ends up doing the next COD) is really running low on Eureka moments, may we humbly suggest going down the most half-assed route possible? Namely, just chuck Pricey in a shopping mall, fill the ruddy thing with hordes of zombies and replace automatic weaponry with surprisingly lethal cuddy toys and items of furniture. Man, this development malarkey is a piece of piss.

Call of Duty: Chernobyl Beach Volleyball

Because the world needs a title where Captain MacMillan and a young Leftenant Price don mankinis and spike the shit out of balls. Fact.

    they should do a modern warfare, but set in afghanistan, not in iraq/iran like cod4. If they did, it would be a medal of honor beater by miles!

    Awesome pics.

    The vollyball game should be a cross-promotion with TECMO. Who wouldn't enjoy sniping the girls poolside in a round of DOA vs. COD?
  • CountFenring - January 11, 2011 7:08 a.m.

    Haha! That was pretty good. I specifically liked the Fort Sumter being bloody joke.

    I actually thought about CoD:civil war as a possibly sequel (prequel?) except it spans the entire 19th century. I think they should aslo do ww one with Mensheviks zombies(since the nazis weren't founded yet) versus Stalin, Lenin and other communists.

    Hehe my inet connection broke mid-way so I didn't see that last image, by the way can you put something like "It's a trap" sign whenever you do something like this? I might not be so lucky next time.

    How about "Call of Duty: Football Hooligan Warfare"
  • centrip - January 11, 2011 12:08 a.m.

    Makarov's got it comin' anyway!!!!

  • Clovin64 - January 10, 2011 10:50 p.m.

    I want COD: Beach Volleyball right now! Preferably with one of those hands-free modes. I was totally joking just now.
  • celticsfan645 - January 10, 2011 10:48 p.m.

    Pfff. Please. A way better way to go is back to when Soap was just a fetus. reCaptcha: Burenall science. Strangly medival...
  • CoktorBloktopus - January 10, 2011 10:40 p.m.

    you guys never disappoint I would totally play Chernobyl Beach Volleyball.
  • Stabby_Joe - January 10, 2011 10:18 p.m.

    Actually... a civil war game isn't the most daft idea.
  • BlackElement17 - January 10, 2011 10:14 p.m.

    Call of Duty: Chernobyl Beach Volleyball would be fantastic.
  • TDUBBS - January 10, 2011 10:01 p.m.

    @wiitard07 I think telling Captain Price's story in MW3 takes away the mystery of the characters. It'd by like showing Master Chiefs face.
  • Markstone - January 10, 2011 9:59 p.m.

    All brilliant ideas :D
  • AwesomeGuitarSoloMan - January 10, 2011 9:29 p.m.

    Civil war COD, not the worst idea
  • Japanaman - January 10, 2011 8:25 p.m.

    Civil War? Seriously? What weapons do you get? Knife, gun with really long reload time and... a cannon summon. Oh, boy!
  • BearKiller - January 10, 2011 8:15 p.m.

    There actually is a first person civil war game. I own it. It's actually not as bad as I thought it would be, but it still isn't all that good. It's a solid 6/10.
  • Yeager1122 - January 10, 2011 7:27 p.m.

    The civil war one does seem like the only one that could actually be a game or zombies of course because when in doubt throw in zombies.
