Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer Release Time Countdown

Earliest You Can Play MW3

Activision has confirmed that you are allowed to stream MW3 once the game is out somewhere in the world, which is midnight local time in New Zealand, which is 11am ET on Nov. 9. That’s the earliest anyone in the world can play Modern Warfare 3, and that time has passed. There are ways around in, but we wouldn’t recommend them, due to the possibility of being banned for breaking terms of service.

Worldwide MW3 Launch Times

Activision has now confirmed that the MW3 Zombies and multiplayer modes are set to release on Nov. 9 at 9pm PST/12am on Nov. 10. You can preload the game right now, so load up your console or PC and get it installed.

MW3 launch times world map

Modern Warfare 3 has already been through its Open Beta stage where players across the world and on all platforms experienced the new Call of Duty. From the new maps that evoke questionable feelings from fans, to the reimagined weapons and new movement mechanics, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

The Campaign’s early release has led to some backlash about its quality. Fans who may usually avoid the campaign may decide to jump in early thanks to its ease of access, all while not being burdened with the dilemma of choosing between it or the series’ latest multiplayer offerings.

Ahead of the full multiplayer release, Call of Duty has revealed all of the Mastery Camos coming to both the classic mode and Zombies. There a lot for you to unlock, but the rewards are some of the coolest camos you’ll find.

As you can see from the official tweet above, 16 classic Modern Warfare 2 maps are returning for MW3. Some, you would have seen in the beta, both others will be playable for the first time in over a decade.

And with that, you have a Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer release time countdown you can refer to. For more, be sure to check out the other Call of Duty-related content below. Otherwise, stay keyed to Twinfinite for more guides, news, and updates tied to the latest releases.
