Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III players are less than impressed with the length of the game’s campaign which clocks in at around, prepare yourselves, just three hours.
It’s no secret that Modern Warfare III began life as an expansion to 2022’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. Somewhere along the way, devs decided that they had enough material to make Modern Warfare III its own standalone game, but it’s now coming to light that that’s not the case at all. Just a few days ago, it was discovered that you actually have to launch Modern Warfare II in order to launch Modern Warfare III, which really isn’t helping the ‘DLC’ allegations. The game will gobble up a huge amount of your console storage and is already unplayable for some users in early access. With the news of the short campaign, Modern Warfare III is turning into a real nightmare.
Take a look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III in action below.
It’s no surprise that Modern Warfare III is already being hit by a slew of negative reviews. Considering last year’s Modern Warfare II had the most successful CoD launch of all time, I’m imagining Activision is currently assessing how it got it so wrong this time around. As I’m sure you’re aware, MWIII doesn’t officially launch until 10 November but those who pre-ordered the game are currently benefiting from early access.
Those players have just over one week of early access, but many are finding they actually only needed three to four hours to complete the main campaign. As reported by Eurogamer, one angered player wrote, “I played one hour of [the] campaign and got my refund, and I think you should too if you feel the same way I felt. This was a couple lacklustre raid episodes out together; having just finished CoD Remastered recently, this game failed to capture what it means to be in a campaign.”
Another added, “What a slap in the face. I am shocked and appalled. The writing was on the wall this entire time if you really think about it. I will admit we had about two or three missions that really stood out. That open combat garbage though? If this is the direction of campaign[s] going forward, this is officially the death of CoD. Feels like all they care about is focusing on developing a new Warzone map and shoving every experience into it."
"This is without a doubt the single worst and most insulting CoD campaign I have ever played, and everyone who worked on this portion of the game should be ashamed of themselves for sending it out,” read another post. I expect we’ll see plenty more fallout from this in the coming days.
