It’s already known that Battlefield 3’s campaign is longer than Modern Warfare 2’s single player campaign. But how does Modern Warfare 3 stack up against its predecessor?
According to Glen Schofield, one of the founders of Modern Warfare 3 co-developer Sledgehammer Games, the single player campaign for Modern Warfare 3 feels longer than the campaign for Modern Warfare 2. That doesn’t mean it necessarily IS longer. Schofield clarified that “the exact length depends on the player.” Seeing as how Modern Warfare 2 was criticized for it’s short single player length, I’m not sure that’s a good way of answering the question.
What does that mean it feels longer? Does that mean the story drags on? Schofield added that one of the goals with Modern Warfare 3 was for players to come away praising the story as well as the spectacle. Personally, I’m all about the multiplayer, but I will admit Modern Warfare 2’s story was very intriguing. I don’t care if Modern Warfare 3’s campaign is longer or shorter, just as long as its as entertaining and memorable.
Schofield also shared one of his favorite parts of the single player campaign, a moment in Berlin where a building is collapsing around the player in real time, and then the player has to enter the downed structure while it’s still creaking and groaning. That does sound pretty intense.
Regardless of length, the replay value of Call of Duty is in the multiplayer and with that I present to you the newest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer trailer:
