Modern Warfare 3 Makarov Reveal Trailer Reintroduces the Baddie, Reveal Set for Aug. 17

Activision has released the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 “Makarov” reveal trailer, and this one features actual actors. For those unfamiliar, Vladimir Makarov was introduced in the original Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3, and is considered the primary villain of the game’s story.

Check out the trailer to see Makarov in real life complete with tattoos and all.

Here’s a brief background of Vladimir Makarov (via Call of Duty fandom):

Vladimir Makarov (Russian: Владимир Макаров, and also referenced as Vladimir R. Makarov in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Vladimir A. Makarov in Modern Warfare 3) is the main antagonist of the Modern Warfare franchise known for his ruthless tactics. He’s the leader of an Ultranationalist terrorist cell and Imran Zakhaev’s protégé.[3] Makarov was the unseen overarching antagonist in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the secondary antagonist of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and the main antagonist of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. As well, he appeared as a customization option in Call of Duty: Ghosts. He was the grand mastermind behind World War 3 and the cause of the entire series’ events, always pulling the strings from behind the lines as the puppet master.

Of course, with the remakes, we’re uncertain whether Sledgehammer Games will be changing anything in the game’s campaign story. We’ll know for sure what happens when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 fires out this November 10.

As for what’s new, Activision has confirmed that the MW3 worldwide reveal is set for Aug. 17, which is the same date we reported on last week.
