“Call of Duty 3 brings players closer than ever to the intensity of combat,” said Will Kassoy, senior vice president of global brand management, Activision, Inc. “Gamers will be instantly transported into a seamless narrative, set on a gritty battlefield that features the most highly detailed environments, amazing effects, realistic weapons and soldiers and more for an epic experience.“
Built from the ground-up, Call of Duty 3 takes full advantage of next-generation technology and a new physics engine to deliver a living battlefield where cover is ripped apart by gunfire and explosions; blades of grass are trampled beneath tank treads and soldiers’ feet and uniforms wrinkle and fold like real fabric. Battle Actions require players to engage in life-or-death, hand-to-hand combat with enemies, plant explosives and fire mortars, further immersing them into the most authentic WWII experience to date.
In the ultimate character-driven experience through a continuous and compelling story of bravery, loyalty and teamwork, players step into the shoes of four ordinary soldiers – American, British, Canadian and Polish – to fight through The Normandy Breakout, the historic campaign that led to the liberation of Paris and brought the Allies onto the doorstep of victory.
Call of Duty 3 serves up intense infantry and vehicle simultaneous multiplayer action, allowing Xbox Live players to go online for Axis vs. Allies team-based gameplay for up to 24 players. In addition to Headquarters, Capture the Flag, Battle and Team Battle modes, Treyarch has added War and Single Flag – Capture the Flag. War centralizes the action on common points of interest, promising fast and furious combat on the battlefield, while Single Flag – Capture the Flag forces each team into fierce conflicts over a common objective. In Call of Duty 3, multiplayer fans have more tools in their arsenal: commandeer multiple-occupancy vehicles, mantle tanks, plant anti-personnel mines in strategic areas and rank-up to maximize the strength of your special class ability.
