Sledgehammer and Infinity Ward to “push things to the limit” with Modern Warfare 3

Wednesday, 6 July 2011 20:43 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Sledgehammer’s VP and COO Michael Condrey has relayed to IGN how hard the firm, along with Infinity Ward, is working on Modern Warfare 3 and how both are pushing to get the “best product” possible out onto the market. In the video posted below, Condrey talks about how both teams are pushing things to the limit (to “11″ even) in terms of scope, graphics, and gameplay with MW3. There’s also some gameplay clips in the video as well, but nothing you haven’t already seen. Game’s out in November.

    @11 Were used during WW1 to clear barbed wire or deliver bombs into enemy trenches, and during WW2 by Soviet forces to throw themselves under tanks (although the Soviets themselves weren’t above doing that in person if Fido was feeling under the weather).

    Worlds first astronaut? Laika the dog. Also known as the first bitch in space.

    #12 4 years ago
  13. Erthazus

    @11, yeah. In WW2 they were used and called “Kamikaze dogs” by Soviet forces against Nazi Germans at that time. There is even a monument in Russia for these dogs and the facility in which they were produced still exists to this day and working to this date (except that they just train police dogs for Border troops).

    But Kamikaze dogs in 2011 in MW3 is bullshit of mega proportions. No one is using this anymore and IW|Sledgehammer are probably bringing it to MW3, because they know about military at the same level as they put Russian gibberish in trailers.

    MW4 will feature bears with nuclear bombs probably…

    #13 4 years ago

    @11: Were used by the soviets during WWII to run under tanks and then detonate. Problem was they didn’t know under which tank, and blew up some soviet tanks, so they weren’t used again.

    “Problem was they didn’t know under which tank, and blew up some soviet tanks, so they weren’t used again.”

    you don’t even know the history professor as always. They were trained till 1996 year and dogs were very effected. They destroyed 300 Nazi tanks.

    @13 I’m sure they’re really sorry to ruin your fantasy of MW3 as the ultimate warfare simulator, but last time I checked, the fact that things don’t exist or aren’t feasible, don’t exclude them from being in videogames, like Russia invading the US, or the Japanese developing scalar weapons.

    My guess is they’re bringing it to the game because it might be fun.

    K9′s are in high demand with western special forces at the moment, even if they aren’t used as live bombs. With the ammount of raids they were doing in Iraq and Afghanistan, some squadrons were losing so many guys it risked compromising their operations. Sending a dog into a house before the guys themselves helps the odds a bit.

    @DSB, Relax, no one is asking for a real warfare simulator here. It’s a game about modern military and if it is a game about modern military and especially AAA title, then please do everything authentic, if you don’t know how to do it, don’t even start doing it.
    Because stuff like Russian submarine sailors with P90 (also, what submarine is doing in New York?), kamikaze dogs, Mi-24 flying in the city, black fetish costumes (i don’t know… russians were bears in MW2, now it’s a black fetish suits) and stupid story with fake Russian voice actors is just stupid and cheap in every aspect there is. At the level of cheap polish City Interactive FPS games. In the end it’s not worth it, except for maybe as a Hype train for children. this is not AAA title, it’s a comedy with gunzzzz.

    Holy inferiority complex, Batman.

    You somehow seem to have missed the entire point of a videogame. Nothing is meant to match up to reality, beyond what the designers want to do. All it’s meant to do is entertain the people who buy it. There might be suspension of disbelief issues, but really, if you’ve been taking any modern shooter or TV show that seriously, you’re an idiot. It’s all second rate pulp fiction meant to justify people shooting at eachother, the real question is who delivers it the best.

    Bad Company 2 does the exact same thing. A junkie helicopter pilot flying a 50 million dollar aircraft, a group of 4 grunts, ie a single fireteam, not even a squad or a platoon, none of whom are above the rank of sergeant, sent out to save the world, from a Russian supervillain sporting ancient japanese scalar weapons? Russian soldiers carrying Vintovkas (discontinued since 2006) and AN-94s? In what reality is that possible, champ?

    Does that completely disqualify it from being an entertaining videogame? No. Why? Because it’s fiction, and most people with half a brain will know that. I guess they should consider putting that on the box for the slower folks out there.

    Just for the record though:

    Vladimir Makarov is voiced by Roman Varshavsky
    Imran Zakhaev is voiced by Yevgeni Lazarev

    And those “black fetish suits” have essentially been synonymous with the British Special Air Service since the 1980′s.

    Just for the record though:

    Vladimir Makarov is voiced by Roman Varshavsky
    Imran Zakhaev is voiced by Yevgeni Lazarev

    Fail.

    I live in the post soviet country i know Русский язык очень хорошо aka i know Russian very well and i can also speak English and another native language.
    since Modern Warfare 1 there is no russian language. It’s gibberish worse then in Polish shooters with fake russian military weaponry that is old and not used in 90% (except for some soviet weaponry that is still used in Russia to this date), posters, signs and etc. and these voice actors accent is not Russian so you don’t need to tell me are they Russians or not. These guys know about Russia 5 words and that they drink vodka.
    Modern Warfare 3 is beyond something incredible. Everyone who watched teaser trailers and know Russian laughed their ass off already hundred times. Especially in the US teaser – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_7_dYWMsL0

    with “Unichtozith Vraznuju Pobedu Na pobezdenie”. that was a winner. No one in the world heard as much bullshit like this. It’s not even russian giberrish. It’s incorrect in every word there is. There is a mistake in every word. They used basically GOOGLE translator for this.

    Or Makarov is 3 year old and it is his first sentence after: “Mama” and “Papa”

    Also, that sentence speak for the quality of the game completely. Great AAA title.

    “Bad Company 2 does the exact same thing. A junkie helicopter pilot flying a 50 million dollar aircraft, a group of 4 grunts, ie a single fireteam, not even a squad or a platoon, none of whom are above the rank of sergeant, sent out to save the world, from a Russian supervillain sporting ancient japanese scalar weapons?”

    Junkie pilot helicopter and etc. is just what you called “suspension of disbelief issue”. It’s just a character. It’s just a cliche pilot for money. There are tons of them with different behaviour and i don’t have problems with that at the same time i don’t have problem with characters in MW with their Captain Price and etc. It’s just a character. No one complains about them and no one should.
    Again, a group of 4 grunts are just characters… In MW there are 2 guys or 3 that save the whole world. It’s a common comics cliche stuff and this also does not make it stupid and over the top.

    ” Russian soldiers carrying Vintovkas (discontinued since 2006) and AN-94s?”

    I’m sorry. But you are wrong in everything here. AN-94 is used to this date and will be used in MVD and Russian army. Vintovka… you mean SVD Dragunov? It’s also used to this date in the Russian military and will be used. Go read wikipedia if you don’t believe me.

    Also, BC2 made everything right about modern Russian military. Absolutely everything. From new AK, to the military gear. Same goes to the US military.

    So what you said about BC2 were just minor little things that in the end does not something complex and stupid. DICE is going to achieve with BF3 at the same level. Just normal campaign with US military vs Iraq/Afghan or whatever.

    “You somehow seem to have missed the entire point of a videogame. Nothing is meant to match up to reality, beyond what the designers want to do.”

    Don’t start here. You said completely opposite in the Homefront threads and i agreed with you there on that.

    Modern Warfare is a game about modern military. Even Michael Bay that is a master of explosions make everything authentic. It’s important or people will laugh at this shit like in this thread. You don’t even need to know that there were dogs with dynomites. It’s just feels stupid today. I have no problem with dogs and etc. It’s just feels awkward, stupid… same thing like with that Russian sentence that no russian in the world will ever say in his life.
    Fiction? Ok. Bullshit? No thanks.

    #22 4 years ago
  23. DSB

    @20 Cool story bro! TL;DR, in a big way.

    The AN-94 is in limited use, it’s not a general issue, and it’s far from popular with Russian special forces, who prefer either the AKM or the AK-103. The AEK 971 Vintovka as shown in Bad Company 2, has not been in production since 2006. It has nothing to do with reality, and it’s added for the purpose of effect in a videogame.

    It’s obviously very convenient how you try to worm out of the arguments up there “ie this is a human being, so it doesn’t have to be real” like you always do when you get proven flat wrong. Here’s a simple fact, dumbass: Suspension of disbelief applies no matter whether you give your troops the wrong loadout, or you add a character that makes absolutely no sense.

    Nobody’s saying that Bad Company 2 or Modern Warfare made sense. They never tried to make sense, that’s your own hilarious assumption. Any normally thinking person would obviously see that they weren’t trying to be plausible in any way, shape or form.

    I’d say they go pretty far to dispel any notion that they would be. At least for anyone who isn’t a complete idiot. The fact that you actually think Michael Bay uses anything resembling military authenticity in his movies, would seem to put you in that group.

    It’s no use being such a big baby about it. It’s fair enough that your ass hurts just because CoD happens to be a popular series for the time being, but let’s not kid ourselves that anyone cares about your own iditioc rules for what a game “has” to live up to. Obviously it’s only a major problem for you.

    @DSB I didn’t read entire text what you wrote I was lazy :) but Bad Company 2 is more classic shooter with comedy its no way near serious as Modern Warfare.Call of duty was always authentic arcade shooter.

    @DSB, Butt hurts again?

    “The AN-94 is in limited use, it’s not a general issue, and it’s far from popular with Russian special forces, who prefer either the AKM or the AK-103. The AEK 971 Vintovka as shown in Bad Company 2, has not been in production since 2006. It has nothing to do with reality, and it’s added for the purpose of effect in a videogame.”

    That shows that you know about Russian military absolutely nothing. Their limited quantity is hundred-thousands of AN-94 and clearly for BC2 that was enough to show it’s use. AEK-971 is just an Assault rifle modification and they still use it to this date and will continue to use it. Discontinued they it or not, does not matter. AK-47 is still used t this date and will be used even if it is very old and not produced in most cases.
    End of story here really. That shows that you know about their military absolutely “Zero” stuff. At the level of Call Of duty ankd videogames at max with wikipedia on top of it (ah well you don’t even new that AN-94 is used to this date… bwahaha. For your information you can see in every St. Petersburg Russian metro that every militia out there is holding that gun. )

    “Suspension of disbelief applies no matter whether you give your troops the wrong loadout, or you add a character that makes absolutely no sense.

    It’s not about the suspension of disbelief… Retard! You still didn’t get it. It’s about a simple LOGIC in which Modern Warfare 3 fails in every aspect there is. Thats it. “LOGIC”
    Many games out there (and military games) do it right with suspension of disbelief and it’s not looking stupid and retard.

    Also, “The fact that you actually think Michael Bay uses anything resembling military authenticity in his movies, would seem to put you in that group.”

    I said compared to Call Of Duty title his shitty works are much more authentic in every aspect out there then this so called AAA title that can’t even have good voice actors, engineers, designers and etc.

    “It’s fair enough that your ass hurts just because CoD happens to be a popular series ”

    thats the only argument here you bring to the table at the end in which i don’t care and will never care about, i said that to you hundred times and will repeat again i don’t care and i should not. Twilight is also popular and i said that hundred times to you again, but your brain is hurted so you need to repeat everytime about it’s popularity and mention somewhere Bad Company 2. I don’t give an F about for how much fratboys and kids play it on XBOX LIVE.
    Battlefield will never be as popular as Call Of Duty because of agressive Activion marketing campaign and horrible and 1999 year old gunning and running design that any kid can learn and i’m ok with this. As long as there are less idiots in my game that thinks that Russian military consist of anti-tank dogs the better. Battlefield 3 campaign for example already looks much better then anything IW or Treyarch ever produced.

    and you just showed that you know nothing about military, know shit about logic and trying to hide yourself from that with arguments like “suspension of disbelief you are retard, you ass hurts” and blah blah blah when you talked completely opposite in Homefront section before. You can defend your Call Of duty as much as you want, but here and on many sites people don’t agree with you. GL.

    I can’t do anything about abject stupidity man. I hope they invent a vaccine.

    You obviously don’t know the first thing about weapons, the way they’re deployed, or what suspension of disbelief even means, and I guess I kinda should’ve seen that coming before engaging in this. I’ve read books on the Russian military, at most you’ve done a Google search.

    The fact that you can’t help yourself from commenting on all these stories with these very passionate, offended little posts of yours says a lot for how far CoD has its stick rammed up your ass. You obviously care a lot more about the game, than the average CoD fan.

    Either way, cry harder, keep fighting the good fight with your immense knowledge. Hypocrisy is apparently only a factor for the people who actually know what it means.

    I don’t really mind a couple of crybabies disagreeing with me online, it’s not as if BC2 fanboys bother backing up their argument, as clearly shown above. I take people seriously if they talk sense :P
