Prepare for War With PTOM’s Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer Expose

Roger Burchill's Avatar Posted by

Managing Editor, PlayStation: The Official Magazine

The mother of all shooters is about to hit and PTOM’s November issue has intel straight from the Call of Duty team on the changes to online multiplayer. We’ve got tips on strategy and tactics from Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer, as well as a sneak peek at two maps. It’s everything you’ll need to dominate in Modern Warfare 3 from day one…unless you’re like us and lack the ability to aim. Thank god for the noob tube…

PTOM November 2011 Cover

If modern war doesn’t have enough shooting to satisfy your trigger finger, how about a good ol’-fashioned American crime spree? We’ve got Saints Row: The Third’s Super Genius Man-Cat Professor Genki with an exclusive tour of the violence-ridden city of Steelport. It’s the wackiest spin on the open-world crime game that we’ve seen since….well, never. Honestly, in what other game can you fire a weapon that shoots a mind-controlling octopus that you can detonate for wide-scale destruction? Or call in an airstrike to take out rival gang members? There’s even a controller button dedicated to delivering nutshots! It’s outrageous—in that special, tasteless way we so adore.

Rounding out the issue, we’ve got big-time previews of THQ’s brawlers WWE ‘12 and UFC Undisputed 3, hang out with platform pals in Rayman Origins and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, and take spin in Ridge Racer: Unbounded. We’ve also got the final verdict on the latest PlayStation releases including Resistance 3, Dead Island, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, NHL and Madden 12, and the oh-so-special Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection.

We’ve also got first looks at Borderlands 2 and our new gamegal crush with Lollipop Chainsaw. PTOM is on newsstands September 27th and hitting subscribers mailboxes right now. Enjoy!

let me make a clarification before someone tries to troll me. When i say Battlefield 2 i am referring to the Battlefield 2 the direct sequel to battlefield 1942. Not Battlefield: Bad Company 2 the direct sequel to Battlefield: Bad Company.

Battlefield 3 is a sequel in the 1942 and battlefield 2 series not the bad company series. There are some big difference between these games in balance and map design and some minor differences in game play. But i assure other than the fact that Battlefield and battlefield bad company share the title battlefield they are games with very unique differences but unless you are a hardcore fan of the series these differences ay not seem very apparent.

I’ll take BF3 over Laggy,Hacky,Glitchy,COD this year. PS3 users should BOYCOTT this franchise till they treat us as if our money matters as much as XBOX users. And untill they switch to DEDICATED SERVERS. FPS REVOLUTION BEGINS OCTOBER 25TH. Make em hear us PS3 users. The only way they MIGHT listen to us is by us NOT BUYING MW3. BOYCOTT MW3.

@Shishimo9000 Maybe I should elaborate more, the box art for example and based on when BF made the jump the next gen consoles is what I was referring to soooo nobody said anything negative about the game Shittymo. I clearly stated I might get both because I am a fan of shooters in general. The only thing I found annoying was that people don’t have to bash the game constantly and relate it to BF, while the games aren’t completely similar anyway. I don’t deny that the facts you stated are true but no need to get all butt hurt about it buddy lmao! XD

call of duty was fun up until MW2. then the series went down hill from there. hopefully this one will redeem the last 2.

new strategies,new tactics, new info….they took out wager matches and the currency system, in my opionion that was the only thing that moved the COD series foreward.

I hope mw3 is as good as Black ops

People of says that its a “Garbage Game”…I would agree with that if they didn’t made any changes to the game. Even though everyone looking forward to battelfield 3, I still think that Cod:Mw3 is going to be a good game, but not better then Battelfield 3. Atleast not this year.

Infinitay Ward should’ve have incuded the changes way before, there kind of late now!

Seriosuly if you dont like COD you don’t need to hate. Activision has done a very well job keeping up with the gaming community and deserves better than this. They have given they’re all to the best they can and I can say I am very pleased with most of their games, especially the ones made by infinity ward like mw3 will be.

@Roger Burchill Oh yes, I forgot about that! I just expected this to be his month is all.

I wouldn’t have expected any less hate for choosing an MW3 cover. Personally don’t care how many people hate on MW3. I have both MW3 and BF3 Pre-Ordered and I will enjoy them both very much.

Looking forward to this month’s issue.

I haven’t bought POTM in a long time since a few years ago in 2008-2009, when Playstation’s magazine came back. Has anything changed since then? I don’t see the magazine at cvs that often as much as other console magazines or pc magazines. I rarely buy videogame magazines anymore because of the high price to pay each issue, as well as subscribing to it. Not only that, but the proliferation of demos online has eliminated the need for gamers to get a bonus disc with their magazine (esp. PS3 magazine). Which makes sense. As for Mw3 gracing the cover of POTM, it makes sense. Being a call of duty fan since Call of Duty 3 on Xbox 1 (single player) and continuing with Black Ops, it will be a tough choice choosing which online shooter I like. It will be based on social word of mouth.

Man it would have been great to see a Dark Souls cover.

m4dDmUdD said:

September 27th, 2:32 pm

Boo. Should cover BF3 or any other game. Not a franchise that delibarately takes a dump on its PS3 user base…

m4dDmUdD said:

September 27th, 5:03 pm

Finally able to download the BF3 beta… everyone else can do the same on Thursday!

@freddyrivas, if Activision would adopt that slogan and not fire the creative minds behind their best selling console game maybe people wouldn’t hate on the game so much. To me its not about liking another game over the COD titles, but about the damage that is being done to the gaming community through the atrocities of Activision especially in regards to the COD series. Just look at what happened to Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero games…This game is all hype and people believe what ever the spinster artists are telling them.

    @LordDeathAngel Black Ops sold almost 6 million PS3 copies in North America alone. We’ll see about MW3, but just sayin’ that we can’t really say COD is an Xbox handout with those kind of numbers. I’m thinking that some of you have become closet COD players. LOL


September 28th, 12:00 pm

Keep doing the exclusivity thing Bobby. You are just losing fans. Even loyal ones. Now give me the BF3 beta!

Hoping to get it back to day with a Green Light of Life.Can’t wait for the game though watched every single video and photo that came out for it.Wish me luck on my PS3.

After playing BF3’s beta i’m really disappointed… Maybe the huge hype has something to do with that.
I’ll stick to good old MW3 which gameplay is fast, consistent and most of all pure fun!

October 3rd, 4:57 pm

I actually never played any modern warfare game I played the first call of duty game, world at war, and Black Ops so no matter what, I’m still gonna get the game just to see how modern warfare is. Although I wonder how the Sniping is. “PRAISE THE SNIPER”

Hey quit bagging on Activision and PSN all their doing is their job and you guys should respect that if it wasnt for them none of you guys would be playing Playstion right and 4 Xbox and not saying anything bad but I think Playstation is better than Xbox only because that they’re a good company and they know what they’re doing and for Xbox,Xbox is just some computer geeks and wierd gamers

EVILKING_666 said:
