Fans can now play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III early on all platforms, courtesy of the New Zealand trick.
Modern Warfare III launches at midnight local time on consoles, therefore users across the globe in New Zealand already have full access to the next Call of Duty title. Instead of waiting until the clock strikes 12 a.m. on Nov. 10 in your region, you can get on Modern Warfare III on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation early.
Here's how to play Modern Warfare 3 early on all platforms.
How to Play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Early on PC
To play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III early on PC, players can join a game of anyone in New Zealand or successfully using the New Zealand trick on their console. Once you accept the invite, you can begin playing a full day early.
If you are looking to host your own lobbies on PC, go to the firing range after joining up with the New Zealand player. Then, have them kick you out of the party. You should be able to create your own lobbies afterward.
How to Play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Early on Xbox
To play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III early on Xbox, you must use the New Zealand trick. Xbox users can switch their console and player profile regions to New Zealand to gain early access to the title.
Here's how to change your console region on Xbox, per Microsoft:
- Sign in to your Xbox console.
- Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
- Select Profile & system > Settings > System > Language & location.
- Select your new country or region from the drop-down list under Location.
- Select Restart now.
Like PC players, those on Xbox can also join up with someone already using the New Zealand trick.
How to Play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Early on PlayStation
To play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III early on PlayStation, users must either take advantage of the New Zealand party glitch or use the New Zealand trick themselves.
Unfortunately, the trick is a lot more complicated on PlayStation compared to Xbox. Instead of simply changing your region to New Zealand, PlayStation users must create a new account based in New Zealand and then purchase Modern Warfare III on that account.
