Call of Duty fans, here is some new and interesting information about Modern Warfare 3’s PC version. Community manager Robert Bowling revealed that Sledgehammer and Infinity Ward value the PC crowd and are willing to provide a more rich experience. So, the PC version will support dedicated servers, advanced graphics settings, as well as Steam with its friend-lists and achievements.
Additionally, Modern Warfare 3 includes a server browser, voting, RCON, and more. The big F’ up here though is that Modern Warfare 3 won’t support ranked dedicated servers. Yeap, all those dedicated servers will be unranked so say goodbye to your unlocks & stats. Seriously now Infinity and Sledgehammer… WTF?
PC gamers will be able to tweak a variety of graphical options, such as disabling or enabling new rendering features like SSAO and modify features like DOF, Shadows, Anti-Aliasing, Texture Resolution and more.
Bowling also commented on the game’s security which is a major focus for Modern Warfare 3:
“We will be utilizing multiple methods of Anti-cheat and Security methods, including Steam’s VAC system, CEG, and our own propriety methods implemented to provide multiple layers of defence in keeping online multiplayer fun, fair, and secure for all players without limiting the control they expect on PC.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is slated for release on November 8th.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
