Starting imminently, you’ll be able to get your first taste of Modern Warfare 3 in the forthcoming open beta. With several of its remastered classic maps being put on show and loads of new weapons to use, it’s the perfect arena for seeing if MW3 can out-do its predecessor. While the beta is exciting enough in of itself, we come bearing more great news. If you’re weighing up your options when it comes to the next Call of Duty game, you can actually get yourself Modern Warfare 3 for free, as PS5 and Xbox accessory brand Razer launches a new deal that might just up your competitive game too.
The Modern Warfare 3 release date is around the corner, giving you a limited window to get your MW3 pre-orders done and dusted. There’s one caveat to this deal, and it’s that it is only for UK-based customers. However, if that is you, you’ll want to cast your eyes onto the Razer Wolverine V2 Pro Wireless Controller. An alternative to the DualShock 5 controller, this PlayStation-approved accessory is armed with “Razer HyperSpeed Wireless and a full set of competitive features to deliver high-performance, low-latency gaming on PS5 consoles and PC.”
Provided by UK retailer GAME, this bundle includes the GAME-exclusive steelbook version of Modern Warfare 3 – and it won’t cost you anything extra at all. That’s because the controller on its own retails for £249.99/$249.99, and this brilliant bundle packs MW3 in with it for the same price. Buying this version of the game separately would set you back £64.99/$69.99.
So if you’re in the market for one of the best PS5 controllers and are thinking about jumping into Modern Warfare 3, this is the perfect deal for you.
Here are the full specifications for the Razer Wolverine V2 controller:
- Razer Mecha-Tactile Action Buttons
- 8-Way Microswitch D-Pad
- 6 Remappable Multi-Function Buttons
- Razer HyperTrigger
- 3.5mm analog audio port compatible with PS5 consoles and PC (Windows)
- 2 additional thumbstick caps (tall concave, short convex)

- 9.8 ft/ 3 m wired USB Type C to USB Type A cable
- Approximate Size: 105.75mm / 4.16” (L) x 167.5 / 6.59” (W) x 65.2 / 2.56”(H)
- Approximate Weight: 279 g / 0.61 lbs
That’s the lowdown on the controller, but what about Modern Warfare 3 itself?
Packed with a bunch of new modes and features, like MW3 Zombies, the potential for it to become one of the best FPS games in recent memory is strong – and it’ll be even sweeter if you play it for free. Getting your pre-order confirmed also gets you MW3 early access, as well as a MW3 beta code to test out MW3 multiplayer. And for you battle royale fans out there, you’re like already aware that a brand-new Warzone map is arriving with the launch of Modern Warfare 3, and it’s giving off some awesome Verdansk vibes.
If this controller looks like your kind of thing, then don’t hesitate to improve your audio setup, too. We’ve put together the current slate of best PS5 headsets on the market, as well as the best PS5 SSD options to consider. After all, Call of Duty games aren’t exactly small.
