Heroes Captain John “Soap” MacTavish and Captain John Price return in Modern Warfare 3, along with a new Russian agent Yuri.

Taking place four years after the events in Resistance 2, Insomniac Games takes players on a journey across a war-torn America, where remaining survivors of the Chimera invasion have been scattered, leaving hope lingering by a thread.
Many of the game mechanics from the previous titles are making their return, with a few new additions. Resistance 3 supports up to 16 players online via multiplayer in both deathmatch and mission objective based map types, as well as supporting split-screen and online co-op for the game’s storyline. Many of the series cherished weapons will be making a return as well, including the Bullseye, Magnum, Rossmore, Auger, Marksman and Carbine, all of which are upgradable.
Additionally Resistance 3 supports both the PlayStation Move via the PlayStation Sharp Shooter peripheral and stereoscopic 3D. Look for Resistance 3 when it hits stores September 6, 2011.
Using what appears to be a heavily modified version of the Unreal Engine 3, CCP Games (developers of Eve Online) looks to redefine the FPS genre by having Dust 514’s massive FPSMMO ground battles actually affect what happens overall in the Eve Universe, combining FPS planet battles with Eve Online’s spaceship wars.
Not much else is known about the title other than players will not have specific classes to choose from, rather their abilities and specializations will be decided by the choices they make. Also, fully customizable vehicles will be available to players, using a high-medium-low slot system similar to Eve Online. No official release date has been given, however it wouldn’t be surprising if the game passes into the 2012 release window.
