This will be the eighth Call of Duty release to date, and the third of the Modern Warfare series developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games with the help of Raven Software.
For anyone unfamiliar with any of the Call of Duty games, this is a first person shooter running at 60 frames per second. The game will include a single player campaign where you will play the role of various characters, which will provide you with varying perspectives. Damage will be indicated by blood on your screen, with a players health deteriorating over time.
In multiplayer, the reward system was changed from the killstreak reward system, but instead a pointstreak system. What this means is that you can gain player points not only by kill count, but by actions like planting bombs in “Search and Destroy”, and capturing the flag in “Capture the Flag”. If you would like to read more on the pointstreak system then please check out this New Modern Warfare 3 Pointstreak System explained article at this MW3 Fan Site; they seem to have done a pretty introductory job at doing so.

Basically, what this includes is the free subscription service will include features like a lifetime statistics and social networking integration, and the subscription version priced at $49.99 USD per year includes the monthly downloadable content, daily competitions – with virtual and real life prizes, the ability to level up your clan, pro analysis, strategies and more.
