A leak has given fans an early look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and its overhaul of fan-favorite map Terminal.

Modern Warfare 3 is releasing on November 10 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Those who preordered the game already have access to the campaign, something that some Call of Duty fans are saying isn’t a selling point. Multiplayer remains on the shelf for now but it seems like Activision may have been preemptively planning to make up for frustrations over the single-player offering.

A new leak showcased a popular map that will likely be returning in the upcoming Call of Duty title. Although the leak only shows a few pictures, it’s enough for people to appreciate how different it will be from the previous iteration of the map

Is Terminal in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3?

Terminal will be returning in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

This map first came out back in 2009 for the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, so seeing it in its current-generation splendor has fans excited. Modern Warfare 3 was already confirmed to be adding a variety of maps from past games, but now fans are actually getting a peek at what it looks like in the new game.

Terminal has seemingly gone through a drastic overhaul when it comes to graphics, boasting higher-quality textures and much better lighting. Although it’s clear that there’s a huge fidelity boost, it’s not certain if the map has gone through any structural changes.

Alongside Terminal are other classic Modern Warfare 2 maps including Afghan and Rust. Though Modern Warfare 3 has landed with a thud to this point due to the frustrations surrounding its campaign, it’s possible that the game could gain traction with its multiplayer.

Modern Warfare 3 has been subject to a variety of leaks in the buildup to its release. The most recent include the zombie schematics and several maps that are expected to be part of the multiplayer map rotation at launch. However, either the developers or Activision have been aggressively striking down as many leaks as they can, resulting in many of them not being easily accessible on social media. At least not for long.
