Let’s go in order, because there is a lot to tell.
Regarding the single player campaign, the story of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 starts immediately after the previous title. Task Force 141, led by Captain Price, must face the greatest threat he has ever known. One whose affectations have a global reach.
After spreading gunfire in Mexico, the group discovers that the Las Almas Cartel has some ties to a Russian terrorist organization. This, in turn, is directed by an old acquaintance of the franchise: Vladimir Makarov. Of course, we are facing a reimagining of the feared antagonist of the original trilogy of Modern Warfare.
One of the main novelties of the campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is that it will offer missions in noticeably larger arenas. The idea is to convey to the player a feeling of greater freedom when meeting certain objectives.

Let’s go, now yes, to the multiplayer. From the beginning, this modality will include a remastered version of each of the 16 maps of Modern Warfare 2 (2009). It is not a minor issue, since they are considered, by many fans, as the best in the history of the franchise. You will have the opportunity to play again in Terminal, Favela, Highrise, Estate and Afghan to name a few. The complete list is below:

The company clarifies, however, that 12 brand new maps (for 6 vs. 6 modes) will be added in future seasons.
Regarding the gameplay, Sledgehammer Games echoed the criticism against the previous game and has introduced notable changes.

The most ambitious zombie mode to date
