Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 storms into stores

Gamers across the world have finally been given a chance to get stuck into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 after the much-hyped blockbuster launched in stores today (November 8th 2011).

Activision's latest action epic has finally arrived on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii and Nintendo DS, with midnight launch parties having taken place at 13,000 locations across the world last night.

Developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, Modern Warfare 3 is a cutting-edge shooter that catapults players into the middle of a third world war, with a dramatic campaign mode complemented by an improved version of gaming's most popular multiplayer experience.

The launch is one of the most eagerly anticipated of the year, with global pre-orders shattering records left, right and centre.

Modern Warfare 3 stands a good chance of matching or exceeding the success of last year's award-winning Call of Duty: Black Ops, the top-selling game in UK history.

Activision Publishing boss Eric Hirshberg said: "This watershed launch extends the legacy of the franchise like no other previous release."
