Steam must have done Activision proud ever since the mega-publisher decided to roll with the online gaming platform for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Valve confirms today that the PC release of Activision and Sledgehammer's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will continue to support the Steamworks online platform. Steam will be integrated into both physical retail and digital download versions of MW3, along with the free dedicated server support previously announced for the upcoming shooter.
The PC version of the product will be powered with Steamworks for both the digital and tangible versions of the game and, as with all Steamworks titles, offline play will also be supported along with Auto-Updating, Achievements, and more. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will also support dedicated servers on day 1.
Valve and Activision also reaffirm that MW3 will be ready to launch later this November 8th.
