If you haven't already heard, Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has confirmed the contents included with Modern Warfare 3 Hardened Edition. Details were leaked last week, and at COD XP, these rumored details were announced as fact.
We still haven't gotten clarification on price, but popular speculation hovers around $80, going by how much previous Call of Duty special editions were priced at. Otherwise, here is what you can expect to get with the Hardened Edition:
- Collectible SteelBook case
- A copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 with unique disc art
- One year membership of Call of Duty Elite, a $50 value
- Special "Founder Status" on Elite, which includes an exclusive in-game emblem, player card, camouflage, clan XP boost, and other benefits
- Console exclusive content:
- Xbox 360: Special Ops Juggernaut Xbox LIVE Outfit
- PlayStation 3: Animated Timeline Theme
- Limited edition collectible field journal, with 100+ pages of "authentic military sketches, diagrams, and written entries"
In addition to the Hardened Edition details, we've also got the Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer world premiere trailer, released earlier today. The debut trailer goes with last night's Call of Duty XP Press Event, during which the media was given an early look at the multiplayer content -- not to mention hands-on time.
Gameplay changes include an overhauled Killstreak system, new modes, and weapons leveling. Activision also revealed the Premium (paid) Elite content, for those who are curious. Read our coverage of the multiplayer event here.
