Modern Warfare 3 Confirmed To Have Steamwork

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 might be a must buy for console gamers, but the game is a bit trickier of a sell to PC gamers. However the game just became more appealing to the PC gaming crowd with the announcement that it will use Steamworks.

With disasterous results of Modern Warfare 2's use of peer to peer multiplayer matchmaking in the PC version, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was always going to be a hard sell for PC gamers. In a not so surprising move, Activision has announced that, like the last two games, The PC version of Modern Warfare 3 will use Valve's Steamworks. As part of this, the PC version of is confirmed to support offline play, automatic patching and achievements.

Activision had also previously announced that the PC version of the game will feature dedicated servers for multiplayer from day 1 of the release this Novermber. Personally, I'm not sold on Modern Warfare 3, but for the hardcore multiplayer FPS crowd and gamers who hated the matchmaking that Modern Warfare 2 featured, the announcement of Steamworks and dedicated servers could make it well worth checking out.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is set for release on the 9th of November 2011.
