Kotaku has blown Modern Warfare 3 wide open, verifying game details, gathering screenshots and reposting the entire story online.
The multi-source-based report confirms the 8th November release date that Eurogamer revealed on Monday.
The new game will be known as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It is a collaboration between Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software.
Every aspect of the game has been expanded. The story begins with a surprise attack on the US by Russia and then jets off around the globe, delivering short, punchy sequences from multiple views - a performance Modern Warfare as a series is famed for.
You'll take on roles within some of the world's most elite fighting forces across 15 missions. Modern Warfare 3 will answer most of the questions that arose from MW1 and MW2. There will be familiar faces, but also new characters to take the series forward from here.
Scanning through the story there are some stand-out terrorist set-pieces planned, but nothing of the shock value of No Russian, it seems.
We won't reveal the story here; you can read through it on Kotaku if you wish.
Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer will offer a "chunky" list of playable maps as well as two types of Spec Ops modes: Survival and Mission. That's all the detail on MP there is.
There are screenshots of Modern Warfare 3 on Kotaku. These are unconfirmed and appear to be from an early build.
Activision has not commented on the huge leak.
