Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy to hit retailers’ shelves Tuesday

call of duty modern warfare trilogy out at retail this week mwtrilogy header
Retailer Best Buy has announced the imminent release of a Call of Duty compilation for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that includes the landmark first-person shooter Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and its follow-ups Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3.

The series-spanning package, which has not yet been officially announced by publisher Activision, is due to hit stores Tuesday.

According to Best Buy, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy is a three-disc set for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that includes all three entries in developer Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare subseries. Pre-order details list the compilation’s price at $30.

The package also includes a digital code redeemable for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2‘s Stimulus Package DLC, which adds five playable maps to the game’s included multiplayer modes. Though many more map packs were previously released across all three games, no other DLC is included as part of the Modern Warfare Trilogy retail package.

Activision recently announced that a visually upgraded version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will premiere for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PCs later this year as a freebie bundled with the latest series sequel Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered are set to launch on November 4.

Players hoping for a stand-alone release for Modern Warfare Remastered are out of luck, however, as Activision revealed that the game will only be bundled with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and will not be sold separately. Infinite Warfare saw an overwhelmingly negative response from longtime series fans upon its announcement earlier this month, and the game’s debut trailer ranks as one of the most-disliked videos in YouTube’s history.

Though the Xbox One offers backward compatibility for a large number of legacy Xbox 360 games, publisher Activision has not issued backward-compatible versions of any game in its Call of Duty series, and is unlikely to add Xbox One compatibility for this week’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be entering its second season, and while Activision hasn't officially unveiled all of the contents of the update, the company did make a few announcements to stir up excitement. Much like you'd expect with live-service games, Call of Duty is built on a seasonal system, wherein the game gets major content drops with each update.

Season 2 is gearing up for launch after a short delay, and for many fans, it's a make-or-break scenario, because reception to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 has been middling thus far.
