Modern Warfare 3: “Redemption” trailer focuses on singleplayer campaign

The new “Redemption” trailer for Modern Warfare 3 takes the focus off multiplayer, Elite, and the game's big reveals thus far to focus on the title's singleplayer component. You know what that means, right? More gameplay, explosions, dodgy-accented ideologues and plenty of gruff British speechifying.

Above: Oh, you best believe there's a “gogogo” in there

You've now had a good look at Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer Spec Ops mode, a tour of Call of Duty Elite, and a teaser for the events of the game's singleplayer story. With less than a month until the title's release, what else are you interested in seeing? Or are you holding off until launching the game for yourself on Nov 8?

    wow.. well lets hope the campaign isn't short like black ops... im hoping for at least 20-22 missions...

    I feel that I'll enjoy MW:3 much more than Black Ops.

    Haters gonna hate. This looks awesome. I love the variety of scenery, seems like African levels made it too.

    Heres how I feel about COD: I loved Modern Warfare (COD 4) cuz it was a brand new concept, and it was simple, yet complex in game mechanics. Ever since then I feel that every Cod has been like an overproduced Spielberg movie-lots of flash and boom, but no substance to it. I might rent this game down the line just to see where they went with the story, but the multiplayer in my opinion has been boring since Cod 4

    aaa so what if bf3 has a better engine n better graphics i still like cod n wanna see where the story is gunna go from MW2 i still apreciate both games i played the bf3 beta n yeh my god it is good but still once i get hooked on a story i wanna see it through however messed up it was in MW2 im hooked

    Yeah, all I could think of was those graphics are looking a bit crap now that BF3 has moved things along. The queues I experienced at the conventions tell me that this will be another 'breaking all records' success, but the Battlefield beta feels like they've nailed it for me. The guns just feel more... 'weighty', and the environment damage is just astonishing. Also can't wait to see how the user vehicles add to the mix.

    All I saw was a trailer for a future Transformers 4. Except, without the robots (well, only one), but with the same unintelligible human story-lines and over-the-top use of fire and flames. But honestly, it looks a lot better than Battlefield 3 right now. (for the 360 at least from what i saw in my time with the beta. For the PC, hell i mistook that tank mission for a documentary the first time i saw it.) Of course, that doesn't mean that its going to be the better game, even though Activision is saying the only reason why they're better is because they can run 60 FPS, which, if thats you're ONLY selling point other than the fact your name has "Call" and/or "Duty" in there somewhere, is very weak.

    Even the BF3 beta looked better, and that was a old build. How can you think that this looks 'a lot better than battlefield 3 right now'? I like the transformers comparrision :P
  • lemur - October 10, 2011 3:03 p.m.

    I like how at the end the sped up th WW3 to MW3 trasition. I lol'd for some reason.
  • ChristopherDalley - October 10, 2011 12:54 p.m.

    'Cause bigger obviously means better. Crappy game is Crap
  • tomthespesh - October 10, 2011 12:35 p.m.

    I don't want to want it if that makes sense, but I liked the modern warfare games. I think my CoD hatred comes from WaW and Black Ops which were a lot worse. Though I only want to see how they wrap the story up after MW2's insanity. I'll rent or borrow a mates I guess.
  • Teaspoon - October 10, 2011 12:23 p.m.

    Did anybody play that promo-game-parody of CoD made by Epic to help shift Bulletstorm? I think it was called Duty Calls or something like that... But anyway, this looks just like it. "Bla bla bla kill this guy bla bla bla top-secret mission bla bla bla all depending on you bla bla bla don't let us down bla bla bla mission accomplished." Why do we buy this tripe?
  • db1331 - October 10, 2011 12:22 p.m.

    That engine is REALLY showing its age now. When I saw the MW2, and even the Black Ops trailer, I didn't think "God that looks old", I just thought "That looks like CoD." Every time I see this trailer though, all that sticks with me is that it looks so dated. It must just be because I've seen BF3. I guess they are going to keep riding that same engine until the next generation of consoles drop. That's not to say the game still can't be fun, but you would think that with the billions of dollars CoD has brought in since CoD4, they could afford to drop a tiny % of that on developing or even leasing some newer tech.
  • MyCoolWhiteLies - October 10, 2011 12:20 p.m.

    Still looking good. Hopefully the storyline will be a bit more intelligible compared to MW2's. I'm not a huge fan of CoD's multiplayer, but the single player campaigns are so high budget it's hard not to be impressed by some of the bits they create. Ever since MW1 though, I've only enjoyed the few standout parts, and have otherwise found the overall campaigns fairly forgettable.
