Modern Warfare 3 launches on November 10, and is riding the coattails of nostalgia, with its entire launch day map package containing all previously released maps. Most maps are from the original Modern Warfare 2 in 2009, offering players a return to fan favs like Rust, Highrise, and Terminal, along with the less popular but still great maps like Afghan, Skidrow, and more. In addition, all the CoD studios announced they are going to run several returning MW2 2022 maps, and other classic and new releases over the lifespan of MW3. Here’s a list of all MW3 Multiplayer maps coming at launch, and more information related to the MW3 map roster.
