quote:

Treyarch is focused on crafting immersive environments, adding new effects like:

- Interactive foliage (e.g. grass remains flattened when walked over)
- Scorch marks left from grenades
- Surface-specific reactions to bullets
- Destructible cover
- Wind-altered smoke (from smoke grenades)
- Smoke clinging to tanks
- Bullets manipulating smoke clouds

Seems to be awesome!
There's others things about this EGM's article but its in french here.
I'll try to find the article source ;)

[edit] I found it on xbox.com forum:

Leaps over CoD2:

1. In game system has been rebuilt
2. Characters move more realistically.
3. more textures and shaders in the environment
4. No more boarded up windows so now you can see the turn up landscape all around you.
5. foliage remains flattened when you walk over (you can track people now, until it is real destroyed)
6. Grenades leave real scorched earth.
7. Surfaces react to bullets like they should, grass is different from steel, steel is different from wood, and wood is different from water.
8. More than 24 characters on screen at one time.
9. Destructable cover
10. Global winds affect smoke grenades.
1. Now, when a tabk moves through smoke grenades the somke will curl around it.
2. Bullets through smoke with stream out the other side moving the smoke.
3. Trees and grass will move with the wind

Things change:

1. You actually have to go through the actions of planting a bomb instead of holding A.
2. You have to row a boat while still trying to shoot you way to freedom.
3. Hand to hand combat compared to the way Condemed works.

CoD3 campaign takes place during the real campaign called Normandy Breakout. This is after D-day when the troops are moving inland to move the Germans back and liberate Paris.

1. Load times are bring erased between levels.
2. Play as Americans, British, Polish Resistance, and the Canadian army (giggles and food should love that).
3. Example: When you are fighting with the British you will fight along side the French resistance.

Multiplayer

1. 24 online
2. Single or Splitscreen (here are your guest).
3. Players choose their class ranging from medic to sniper.
1. Each ability as you earn points in rank.
2. Ex. A scout at first can only call in a couple artillery barages. As they gain ability they will be able to call in a broken arrow (I added that for you Vietnam and "When we Were Soldiers" guys)
4. Online leaderboards track stats and rankings by specialty.
5. New Multiplayer mode called War.
1. Axis and Allied teams battling for strategic locations.
6. And of course vehicles.

I hope the overall play mechanics stay grounded. But still no online co-op?! I would've thought they learned from COD2, it's necessary as all your team mates do is rush in, die, and rush in, and die. I need someone who can die while lobbing as many grenades as possible into a crowded room. War sounds like it'll rock though.

Sounds interesting, I loved the expansion pack that Treyarch made for the first call of duty especially the multi-player it had a BF feel.

Destructable covers might be fun in MP, sitting behind something made of wood and beeing shot at from 2-3 people at the same time and need to think quick before the cover starts to break.

Wow... and I was underestimating this game!

You said it, looks just as good...
I had expected more of this game, especially when it comes down to character animations, they still look as awkward as the previous COD.
Pretty disappointing so far, imo...

Well, I think this will certainly LOOK better than COD2 (I agree, animation is very stiff and gets repeditive in COD2)--but I still wonder how it will stack up as a game in general--Treyarch has proved they can make a convincing COD campaign with Big Red One--but it still pales in comparison to the real deal.

Game is looking far better than I expected personally--but that's because of the developer--I had pretty low expectations going in.

Still can't wait to see what Infinity Ward has up their sleaves next..I hope they announce something soon.

Yeah, fair enough, COD is mostly about the atmosphere, which is always spot-on, but still, I'm really disappointed with the character animations, and not only with this game, but almost every game I see.
A very good example is Splinter Cell, which used to be the top of the notch when it came down to graphics and character animations.
Sure, it looks impressive graphically, but those animations, *urgh*!
Haven't changed a bit...
And the funny thing is, nobody seems to really care about animations anymore?!

New gameplay footage the explosions are really nice some of the best explosions I've seen in any game they don't just disappear right away they have that lasting effect as real explosions should. (I'm talking about how the dust kicks up its really nice)

Sadly Gears of War (due to unreal engine) has those extremely fast and fake explosions that I hate, but I'll deal with it I guess.

IGN seems to have loved what they saw of single player and multiplayer.

Don't assume this will suck just because it's being made by treyarch.
