Call of Duty: Modern Warefare 3 Hardened Edition Details Leaked

Many of you wrote it to tell us about a wired article showing off leaked advertisement info for the upcoming Hardened Edition of Modern Warefare 3.

Call of Duty Modern Warefare 3 (SteelBook) Hardened Edition (Xbox 360) {PS3) [PAL] (Activision) (Infinity Ward)

The photo shows the BBFC rating logo meaning this is likely information on the UK release (although if past COD CEs are any indication all versions internationally are the same). While not specifically mentioned it seems that again, like past COD releases, it will include a SteelBook case for the game disc itself.

Explicitly mentioned is the following content:

  • 1 year of Call of Duty: “Elite” Membership
  • Special “Founder” status, which profiles you with exclusive:
    • in-game emblem
    • player card
    • weapon camouflage
    • clan xp boost
    • other benefits
  • PSN animated timeline theme
  • Xbox Avatar Special Ops Juggernaut Outfit.
  • A Field journal with 100+ pages of authentic military sketches, diagrams and written entries chronicling the Modern Warfare saga.

What seems most peculiar to me is that Activision has waited so long to mention details on this release and the inevitable Prestige Edition, even after this leak they refused to comment. Most likely they are simply waiting for the Call of Duty Convention occurring this weekend. We’ll post up details once they’re available.

    Market gonna be flooded with these again no worries of stocks selling out

  2. Solemn_In_Berlin:
    A rather weak Hardened Edition compared to the past titles'. Curious to see how they'll handle the Prestige Edition, though. Not that I'll buy it, I hate Call of Duty.

  3. Twistedsymphony:
    part of me hopes that there wont be a prestige edition...

    I mean yeah the included items have been cool but the packaging is always garbage... it's like they're selling toys not collectors items.

    Totally agree

  7. Mike1888:
    No steel? Pass!

    I've never bought a prestige edition, they just don't interest me the least bit.

  8. Christown:
    You mention in your original post,

    "While not specifically mentioned it seems that again, like past COD releases, it will include a SteelBook case for the game disc itself"

    It does actually say it includes a steelbook on the box?

    4th dot point down it states, "Premium Collectible Steelbook Case"

    Am I the only one who saw that or what?

    Wow. Thank you for pointing that out. I must have read it over a good 20 times and missed that line.

    Going to get it then.

  12. web_slinger_62:

    Hopefully the non-elite hardened comes with the steel and I can get that.

  14. Ayiu:

  18. Futbol 04:
    No helicopter, no spy plane, none of that. Y'all are wrong for that would be a better item than what we are getting.. The prestige item is a gas mask. Yes, a gas mask.
