Call of Duty 3 Charges Onto Retail Shelves

Tuesday, November 07, 2006 - 13:29:44 EST

Get closer than ever to the fury of combat with Call of Duty 3, as you fight through the Normandy Breakout, the Allied campaign that paved the way for the liberation of Paris and the fall of Nazi-occupied Europe.  Players will feel the rush of unrelenting action as they challenge German forces from four allied sides through single and multiplayer missions that unfold like a gripping and epic war movie experience. Call of Duty 3 from Activision, Treyarch is on sale now for the Xbox 360 for a suggested retail price of $59.99, as well as both the Xbox and the PlayStation 2 each for a suggested retail price of $49.99. 

“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 doorsteps 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.

Just as multiplayer values great teamwork, Activision has also joined a team of partners that include Spike TV, to produce the Game Head Call of Duty 3: Challenge, video game-reality-TV special, airing on Friday, Nov. 10 (12:40 am ET/PT) and Brady Games, whose Call of Duty 3 Official Strategy Guide is available at electronics, book, and software retailers nationwide, and online at bradygames.com.

Call of Duty 3 is rated “T” for Teen (blood, language and violence) by the ESRB.
