Modern Warfare 3 Launch Trailer
Just days after the Battlefield 3 launch trailer, Activision's workhorse series comes out with its own single player launch trailer to get its fans drooling. With everything seen in the video, it looks like the hunt for Makarov will bring a dynamic closure for the Modern Warfare 3 trilogy. The primary speaking character is Captain Price, but the endearing "Soap" MacTavish is nowhere to be seen. He might be the player character, who has always been a silent character in the Call of Duty series. Or has Shepherd's knife gotten the better of the resilient protagonist? The answers to these mysteries will be answered on the game's release date: November 8, 2011.
It's worth pointing out that there is a point in the trailer where Captain Price gives the player character a solid pummeling that sends him sprawling down the stairs. Whatever this throttling means, it is an interesting glimpse at the hopefully unpredictable story in Modern Warfare 3.
