Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: the arrival also for Wii and other interesting news

There are two new features arriving on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 frontthe first person shooter developed by Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software and published by Activision which will be available starting November 8, 2011.

The first concerns the release of the title for a new platform, the Nintendo Wii: During a meeting with shareholders, Activision confirmed the rumors, which have been circulating for some time, regarding the release of the title for the Wii version. Great news for anyone who has used the previous titles on the Nintendo console.

Regarding the conversion, no news has arrived of who will take care of it but most likely it will be up to Treyarch, who oversaw the reductions of Black Ops, World at War and Modern Warfare for Wii.

The other news concerns the announcement, also issued by Activision, of further new details on the Call of Duty XP event: the publisher, in fact, will give the participants a code to get a free copy of the Hardened Edition of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

During the Call of Duty XP there will also be a tournament for thirty-two participating teams, single elimination, with the sum of 1 million dollars up for grabs. In our country the qualifying sessions have already taken place and, as we know, they have decreed the selection of the TLC1 team. The finalist teams, which will receive a cash prize, will be eight with the overall winner taking away 400 thousand dollars.

Participants, after the illustration of the multiplayer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, will be able to experience the game in person, same thing for the other episodes of the series. During the Call of Duty XP will also be revealed the Hardened Edition of MW3 which will be given as a tribute, as mentioned above, to all present with the help of a code.

But the news doesn’t stop there as attendees will be able to preview some exclusive features for Call of Duty Elite service members and watch the Modern Warfare-inspired short film and Pro vs. GI Joe (there will be players and celebrities who will clash with some members of the US troops in multiplayer matches). We remind you that the event will be held in Los Angeles, at Playa Vista, on 2 and 3 September next.
