It’s been a funny week for leaks and attacks. Deus Ex Human Revolution’s website getting hacked (which does seem a bit like Thief 4’s website getting stolen), an MP leaking a game announcement (which is my favourite embargo break ever – presumably Creative Assembly will be punishing Vaizey by refusing to give him preview code), and then the rather astonishing complete spoil-fest of not only huge amounts of content for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but even that Modern Warfare 3 exists. Activision and Infinity Ward have sprung into action and created four teaser trailers that confirm it all for themselves. You can watch them below.

Which means Activision’s favourite substitute teachers, Raven, will be stepping in to help with the unruly class. There’s also support from the freshly qualified classroom assistants, Sledgehammer Games.
Today there are four teasers, one for each of four countries that you’ll be modernly warring in during the game. How did they manage to pull them together so quickly? By not really including any game. However, there is a strong suggestion that there’s some impressively detailed recreation of real-world city streets. It looks like quite a chunk of London in England’s (sorry, “3ngland’s” teaser).

And most impressively, Germany:
