Modern Warfare 3 is scheduled to feature a plethora of maps for standard multiplayer, as a recent Call of Duty blog post confirms that certain maps from Modern Warfare 2 in 2022 will make a comeback this year as post-launch content through the new “Carry Forward” initiative.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be released on November 10, including all 16 remastered maps from 2009’s Modern Warfare 2. Activision has previously announced that both new and remastered maps will be introduced as seasonal content after the game’s launch. Now, this latest blog post reveals that select maps from last year’s Modern Warfare 2 will be added to the already-announced DLC map list.
The initial batch of returning maps consists of Farm 18, Mercado, and Shoot House. These maps will be accessible shortly after the game’s release in a dedicated playlist, with more maps from 2022 to be added in subsequent seasons.
These maps will retain their original graphics from Modern Warfare 2, but they will not be playable in Modern Warfare 3’s new game modes. Furthermore, the blog post mentions that the maps may offer a different gameplay experience due to the advancements in movement and general gameplay mechanics in Modern Warfare 3.
The inclusion of last year’s maps in Modern Warfare 3 is just one aspect of Call of Duty’s innovative Carry Forward program, which allows for the transfer of most items from Modern Warfare 2 to Modern Warfare 3. This includes the entire arsenal of weapons, camouflages, various vehicle skins, and the valuable operator bundles.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be available on November 10, but players who have preordered a digital copy can start playing the campaign as early as November 2. Be sure to explore all the information we have gathered so far about Modern Warfare 3, including campaign details, Zombies, and more.
