Modern Warfare 3 leaks


The latest Modern Warfare 3 leaks claim the game will launch with a zombies mode which is great news for those looking to take down some undead opposition. Unlike previous titles, there won't be a round-based mode. Instead, a new version of Outbreak from Black Ops Cold War will arrive.

As with all Call of Duty games, Modern Warfare 3 will also contain a single-player campaign. Although there's no information on the storyline, there's a very high chance it will be a continuation of the Modern Warfare 2 campaign involving Ghost, Captain Price, and more.
