Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 In The Works – And A Board Game?! [VIDEO]

Call of Duty 2023 will be presented in its entirety in the Warzone. And the Kickstarter campaign for the board game is about to launch…



Activision has officially confirmed that this year’s Call of Duty will be a direct sequel to last year’s game. And we’ve even got a release date: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will arrive on November 10. This was revealed in a short teaser for the game released on Monday. That teaser warns that “the ultimate threat awaits” in Modern Warfare 3, and all signs point to it being classic CoD baddie Vladimir Makarov.

In the 41-second teaser, Modern Warfare’s moustachioed super soldier John Price warns us not to bury our enemies alive before a stylised, wave-like image of Makarov’s face appears in the teaser.

Last year’s CoD also included a post-credits teaser footage frame. This apparently showed a Russian terrorist force about to take over a commercial flight. And Makarov warned his agents, “No Russian”. This is, of course, a reference to the infamous level of the same name in 2009’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. In it, Russian terrorists massacred dozens of people at a Moscow airport.

The teaser also includes a phone number, which, when you send it, you get a creepy little message and an exciting map…

In July, Activision confirmed that CoD 2023, as it was called at the time, would be released in August as part of a limited-time event in Call of Duty: Warzone. The image above appears to show that players will experience the reveal of Modern Warfare 3 in Warzone. This is expected to take place on August 17.

Activision has not announced the platforms for CoD: Modern Warfare 3. It is likely to arrive on the same platforms as Modern Warfare 2: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.

Call of Duty on the kitchen table?!


Many were sceptical about Call of Duty: The Board Game. First-person shooters rely on jerky reflexes and heart-pounding action to try and capture the electricity of armed conflict. Board games, by contrast, rely on careful planning and deliberate action. The two formats are fundamentally opposed. However, the demo of Arcane Wonders’ upcoming Call of Duty board game turned out to be quite compelling.

Call of Duty: The Board Game can be played on a tabletop, with a central map depicting the battlefield and puppets/characters representing each player.

Go head-to-head with highly skilled operators from the video game series, such as Shepherd and Ghost. The aim is to move your soldier around the map and secure a central control point. Meanwhile, you’re also trying to kill your opponent. When gunfights break out, they are fast and deadly. And the loser simply dies. The operator who runs over his opponent is free to run around, perhaps taking control points or securing a more favourable position.

This introductory system is multi-layered. It provides a basic rulebook that is easy to learn and understand for people who do not often play hobby board games. But there is also a set of additional advanced systems. This can be incorporated into the basic game. The latter offers details such as aiming downwards for greater accuracy, spending killstreaks to draw particular advantages, customising the operator’s deck of cards and special asymmetric character abilities. Every detail is simple, and if test players are to be believed, easy to learn.

Many are very enthusiastic about the game’s campaign launching on Kickstarter this fall. Waiting for a physical product will be harder to digest – these paintable figures look excellent…
