PAL Call of Duty 4 dated

Modern Warfare-ly soon.

Activision is planning to release Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare on 9th November in Europe for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

A senior brand manager let the news slip during a press event this week, and although Activision UK representatives could only confirm "winter" the view from retail is that this is the date for which they are gunning.

CoD4 has won all sorts of plaudits since its unveiling earlier this year, not only having abandoned World War II as a setting in favour of something a bit more contemporary, but also having improved itself visually to a huge extent with pretty spectacular animation and a narrowly focused palette that helps achieve a much more realistic overall visual effect.

You can try and translate that into real words in your head by browsing our Call of Duty 4 gamepages, which host various trailers and recent news of a multiplayer best test for Xbox 360.

Look out for more on the game soon - hopefully including some more impressions from Games Convention in Leipzig, which runs from 22nd to 26th August.
