Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is being criticized for featuring ultra-violent scenes that are reportedly not appropriate for children.
Like the previous titles in the series, Modern Warfare 3 takes take players to explosions and scenes of destruction all over the world, including Manhattan and London.
Newly released screenshots of the upcoming video game show military choppers, warships, rocket launchers and black-op style combatants.
The game’s voiceover says that the will of a single man is enough to create the next global conflict.
Supporters of those affected by the 7/7 suicide attacks in London in July 2005 are calling for Modern Warfare 3 to be banned.
Condemning the game, campaign group Mediawatch UK’s spokesperson Vivienne Pattison said, “I have concerns as these games are hyper-real and take place in a landscape we are familiar with. In light of the fact we have just had the 7/7 inquests, it is in incredibly poor taste.”
The game is said to be including material inappropriate for children, but the game has not yet received an age certification.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which will be officially released on November 8, can be pre-ordered for £45.
