Information regarding the multiplayer modes of the forthcoming highly anticipated shooter Modern Warfare 3 has been leaked online.
A video posted on YouTube, which has now been removed, showed someone with access to MW3 browsing the various in-game menus.
No gameplay was included in the footage, but info regarding the team deathmatch mode was revealed.
One interesting snippet leaked was that the limit of players allowed to partake of team deathmatch has risen to 32, from the previous cap of 18 that was enforced on console versions of the game.
Funnily enough, that means MW3 can now support more team deathmatchers than rival war shooter Battlefield 3, which can cope with 24 players. Let’s hope Activision isn’t pushing the game engine beyond its comfortable limits to achieve this betterment.
Also revealed was a new “Bomb mode”, but exactly what this is remains unclear (pass the parcel with high explosives? - ed).
Also of intrigue to Call of Duty fans is the name of several maps that could be included in the game, those being: Carbon, Coast, Dome, Exchange, Hardhat, Interchange, Lambeth, Meteora, Mogadishu, Paris, Plaza, Radar and Seatown.
Activision is set to hold a Modern Warfare 3 event, entitled Call of Duty XP, in LA this weekend which will provide an exclusive first look at the game’s online multiplayer.
But the company has been forced to activate a copyright claim to remove the YouTube video in order to keep their content as under wraps as possible before the big reveal.
