Rumors have been swirling since last year that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is essentially just DLC for Modern Warfare 2, due to similarities between the two. Despite the high cost of the game suggesting a complete and independent title, puzzlingly, the PS5 version of the game lacks a Platinum Trophy.

The Call of Duty series, which started two decades ago, continues to flourish. Activision annually releases a new installment of this popular shooter game, each edition featuring minor or major changes. A look at the game release schedule for November 2023 shows several promising titles, with the new iteration of COD expected to be a standout.

Once the 10th of November, 2023, comes around, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will make its debut. The game will be accessible on multiple platforms such as PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X|S, as well as on PC. So, is COD: MW3 merely DLC, or is there more to it?

Missing Platinum Trophy in PS5 version

Gaming specialist, PowerPyx, known for collecting in-game trophies and achievements, noticed something unusual. The upcoming title lacks a Platinum Trophy on its PS5 version. Could this be an error? Maybe an oversight? It surely does suggest that the game is seen as simply an extension of MW2.

An intriguing detail to note is that the Platinum Trophy is present in the PlayStation 4 version of the game. What does this inconsistency mean? We cannot say for sure, but this quirk gives fodder to those gamers who already believe the "DLC theory." However, there's no shortage of unique elements in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

What to anticipate in COD: MW3?

One certainty is that gameplay in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be more dynamic. With the introduction of the new Tactical Stance aiming feature, which combines precision aiming with hip aiming, gameplay is set to speed up. Those who prefer an aggressive playstyle will likely applaud the capability to interrupt reload and slide animations. Notably, gamers can transfer their network content earned in the previous edition and in Warzone to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Furthermore, favorite maps and the Zombie mode make a comeback in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
