Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is now available to pre-order from the websites of multiple UK retailers.
GAME, HMV, Play and Amazon each launched pre-order programmes for the upcoming action shooter this morning, with all confirming a November 8th release date. Each are offering pre-orders for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the game.
Interestingly, the PS3 version of Modern Warfare 3 carries a suggested RRP of £49.99 at GAME, while the Xbox 360 version carries a higher £54.99 RRP. Of course, without official confirmation on pricing from Activision, this could be placeholder at this stage.
Judging by HMV’s product listings, Modern Warfare 3 will also launch simultaneously on Wii, the first time a Modern Warfare game has done so on Nintendo’s platform.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare shipped on Wii in 2009, two years after its release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Modern Warfare 2 skipped the console.
According to HMV the game will also launch on DS, although there’s no sign of a 3DS version.
The existence of Modern Warfare 3 – along with its entire storyline – was leaked last week and officially acknowledged by Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling and Sledgehammer Games over the weekend. The pair tweeted links to four teaser trailers uploaded to YouTube following the leak.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 releases on November 8th 2011. An official reveal is expected in the coming weeks.
