The First Official Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Trailer Is Here (And So Are Three More)

You've had your first unofficial look at this year's Call of Duty, now let's see what the official unveiling of Modern Warfare 3 looks like in this brief, but now familiar teaser trailer, "America Under Siege."


There's no gameplay here, just a stylized tease that the war from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 continues in the United States, with a look at a raging battle in the New York City harbor. Locations from Manhattan to Brooklyn are mentioned in the voiceover in this Modern Warfare 3 clip, locations outed by today's extensive leak of Activision's big game.


Some of the key visuals here match the concept art seen in our spoiler-filled breakdown of Modern Warfare 3's single-player campaign.

Robert Bowling, creative strategist at Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward, says of the MW3 teaser: "Wasn't planned, but you're clearly hyped, so here is the 1st of many Modern Warfare 3 videos coming in hot today!" Earlier today, Bowling commented that "some" of the Modern Warfare 3 information leaked by Kotaku was "still accurate, some not."

Update: Activision released two more trailers for Modern Warfare 3, which can be seen in the gallery above.

In addition to New York City, Modern Warfare 3 features an "Attack On England." Or, 3ngland.

Germany is confirmed on the list of globe-trotting locations in Modern Warfare 3.

And here's France.

I'm getting the feeling this "leak" was more marketing hype than leak. Even with the crappy teaser since when would Activision act like they have so far. Normally wouldn't there be full denial? And Bowling is creative strategist at IW now? What does that even mean?
