MW3 pre-order bonuses also include the Soap Operator pack for immediate use in MW2 and Warzone, which will carry forward into MW3 when it’s released.

This release schedule and pre-order bonuses have worked wonders for Activision in the past, encouraging more players to pre-order the latest entry to get in early and receive unique cosmetics. As such, it’s not surprising to see it repeated for MW3 pre-orders, granting not only digital items for purchasing the game ahead of release but also opportunities to play parts of the game ahead of launch.

Call of Duty MW3 editions

The Call of Duty MW3 editions are:

  • MW3 Standard/Cross-Gen edition ($69.99) – also known as the cross-gen bundle, this will include both a past-generation and current-generation version of the game on the console.
  • MW3 Vault edition ($99.99) – this will grant additional digital bonuses, such as the Nemesis Operator pack cosmetics, two Weapon Vaults, and the first Battle Pass.

Following the trend of recent releases in the series, especially MW2, it would have been highly surprising if Activision had shifted from this established pre-order and edition offering. Nevertheless, the editions and pre-order structure remains largely unchanged.

As for the MW3 Vault Edition specifically, this includes the following:

  • Vault Edition bonus contents
    • Nemesis Operator pack – Price, Ghost, Warden, and Makarov skins
    • Two MW3 Weapon Vaults
    • Battle Pass
    • 1,100 CP
    • Blackcell (for one Season) and 50 bonus tier skips
  • Modern Warfare 3 contents
    • Early access to the open beta
    • Early access to the Campaign
  • Soap Operator pack
    • Pre-order for immediate access to the Soap Operator pack in MW2 and Warzone, which will be carried forward into MW3 when it launches
