Call of Duty XP Concludes With MW3 Multiplayer Details

For those who didn't know about it, Call of Duty XP, the world's first official Call of Duty convention, happened over the weekend. From all accounts it was a great experience for those who attended and towards the end gamers were treated to the first look at Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer gameplay.

To say that gamers are excited for Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer mode would be a bit of an understatement. For a lot of gamers this is the big selling point of the game, particularly if Infinity Ward is able to fix the issues of imbalance and general buggyness of Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer. Check out the trailer below:

The trailer shows off what Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer should (hopefully) be like on launch, and while it doesn't feature too many environments, it does give players a glimpse of the new weapons, modes and equipment they'll have access to, as well as the new Strike Packages system.

The Strike Packages system completely changes the way the Call of Duty's Killstreak system works. Players can choose from a Support, Specialist or Assault. Assault Strike Packages work much like they did before, but Support players will no longer lose their streaks through death and only have access to team-oriented rewards (like UAV's and SAM Turrets). On the other hand, players who choose to play as a Specialist lose access to Killstreaks altogether, gaining Perks as a reward instead.

Look out for more coverage on Modern Warfare 3 as we approach its release date on the 9th of November.
