MW3 won’t have Black Ops’ Character Customization, but will have an “Enhanced” Theater Mode

Although Modern Warfare 3 is a direct sequel to Modern Warfare 2, comparisons with the previous Call of Duty title, Black Ops, are bound to happen. Robert Bowling shed some light on some of the similarities and differences between the two games in question.

Face paint was a gimmick in Black Ops. I don't mind that it's not coming back. As long as they work on balance, I'm happy.

Mister_V2617d ago

I dont think I ever used face paint even once!

jbl3162617d ago

I didn't even know the game has face paint lol. Although I haven't played this game since last year...

blumatt2617d ago

I just hope that the theatre mode doesn't become Elite only. I don't want features taken away that the older games had, just to become Elite "features". I'm not going to buy Elite, because I don't buy into the whole DLC map pack thing. I'll buy the game (regular version) and play it like hell, but I'm not giving them more money for stuff that could've been on the disc when I picked it up. lol

Theater mode will be available to everyone. Elite paid members will get extra features.

I used face paint a lot when I was a kid but when it came to black ops I just wasn't interested, I guess I'm just growing up :(

blumatt2616d ago

Oh, ok, man. That's definitely good news to hear. I hope this game can bring us back to the CoD4 days.

Kind of a downer that they won't have character customization. I know its not a big issue but I would love to have my own custom guy instead of one of these generic faces they give you. Just gives it a personalized feeling especially when you are playing with friends and you kill their character! lol oh well i'll still enjoy the game.

Dolphin diving? lol, good one Rob. I think it's pretty sad how people who work at the same company (Activision) like to ridicule each other.

BTW, I liked the face paint, it made for good camouflage.

Mister_V2617d ago

Never cared much for it. I won't find it a loss.

narutogameking2616d ago

They're not "ridiculing" each other.
You're just being paranoid.

Sukebe_Gamer2616d ago

I think Rob is a little ticked that BO out did MW2 in sales. It's good that they have some kind of rivalry within the company. In theory, that competitive type of environment should push them improve their games to new heights. lol

JohnApocalypse2617d ago

Facepaint wasn't really small add-on. I prfer my character to wear a gas mask anyway

Mister_V2616d ago

From the early leaked pictures of MW3, It looked like we were going to be able to customize masks n such.

Heartnet2616d ago

they were leaked :) said it all xD

SpartanZero2617d ago (Edited 2617d ago )

Thats sucks I liked to hide in the bushes in jungle with the face paint ghillie suit with my camo sniper.

Criminal2617d ago

It's cool on paper, but do think it's an effective strategy?

EazyC2617d ago

Its about time they implemented proper character customization, with appearance, build, tattoos, outfits etc..

Criminal2617d ago

Just to clarify MW3 will not have that.

Fishy Fingers2617d ago

What FPS does? Let alone a military shooter. Military kind of like the outfits they issue.

KaBaW2617d ago (Edited 2617d ago )

Brink had it! :D There's prolly been others, too, I'm sure. Duno what though!
I'd like to see a military shooter have an in depth character customization..

jimmywolf2617d ago

don't worry MW4 will it big the biggest update to the game

Lavitz20122616d ago

If MW4 is the biggest update to cod since cod4 i will buy it but until then no buy.

BuffMordecai2616d ago (Edited 2616d ago )

Yeah, they should put Saint's Row level customization in. I'd be running through the jungle as Forest Gump.
