E3: Kill dogs strapped with bombs in MW3's Spec Ops mode
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Spec Ops Survival is a new wave based co-op experience in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 where you and a buddy will fight wave after wave of of increasingly difficult enemies. Survival can be played on any multiplayer map either by yourself or with a friend (online or split-screen) and the goal is to get loads of cash and survive as long as possible.

So yeah, it's like the Zombies mode from Black Ops except you're fighting soldiers with guns. Unlike zombie mode though, Spec Ops Survival is actually fun. Yeah I said it.

Without a doubt, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is set to be one of the biggest games of the year. The Call of Duty franchise is a pop-culture phenomenon, and Modern Warfare 2 is still in the top 10 most played games on Xbox Live.

Before we're given the world-premiere preview of Modern Warfare 3, Infinity Ward's Creative Strategist, Robert Bowling, explains to the audience what some of their goals were going into the sequel. "We came out of Modern Warfare 2 with a very strong vision of what we wanted for Modern Warfare 3. Things we wanted to add, things we wanted to polish [and] deliver to our fans."

Sledgehammer's Call of Duty story will 'blow you away'

With all the talk about Call of Duty: Black Ops, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Activision has another studio suckling at the cash cow's teet. Sledgehammer Games is making an "adventure spin-off" title and according to s...

Sledgehammer boss: EA treated me like sh*t

It's considered professionally courteous not to slag off a company you used to work for in public. Sledgehammer Games boss Glenn Schofield obviously hasn't heard of professional courtesy, and he's got no love for fo...

Job listing says that Sledgehammer's Call of Duty is FPS

People were nervous when Activision said that Sledgehammer Games' new Call of Duty game would be an action-adventure title. If your mind jumped to third-person when hearing that, well, we're with you on that. But don't worry ...

When Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey left Visceral Games to form Activision's Sledgehammer Games, everyone was left wondering just what the heck the studio's first project would be. If you guessed Call of Duty, you win absolutely nothing ... but you are correct.

Activision was in a talkative mood today, and revealed its current plans for the massively popular franchise. First up, there's the Sledgehammer announcement: the studio is working on an all-new Call of Duty game set in the "action-adventure" genre, and it is to be released in 2011.

Of course, Infinity Ward is still hard at work on Modern Warfare 2's first two add-on packs that are planned for this year. And what of Treyarch? Why yes, Treyarch is doing its thing, too: expect a new installment of Call of Duty from them sometime this fall.

Seeing as how the series is about as action-packed as you can get, I'm extremely curious to see what Sledgehammer's take will be like. Three different studios working on a single franchise? Yep, that's our Activision! Hit the jump for an update on the Infinity Ward management situation.
