Modern Warfare 3 is officially the next Call of Duty game, making it two years in a row for the Modern Warfare thread of the series. Despite this one-year gap, Modern Warfare 3 is still launching with a new Campaign Mode. In fact, you can even play it seven days early via Early Access.
From what we've seen so far, Modern Warfare 3's campaign will take players back to Verdansk, as they hunt down the mysterious Vladimir Makarov. A mission called Operation 627 has been shown already, where you'll infiltrate an island prison to break out a prisoner. It involves grappling hooks, firefights in tight corridors, as well as some underwater combat. It's no wonder then, that players are eager to know the earliest possible time when they can play the upcoming game.
Here's the Modern Warfare 3 Campaign Mode Early Access release date, as well as some info on how to get access. Once specific timings are revealed, we'll be sure to update this page.

The full Modern Warfare 3 Campaign Mode will be available in Early Access for players who pre-order a digital version of the game before launch.
