After years of fans requests, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is now backwards compatible on Xbox One.
The Xbox UK Twitter announced this information last night whilst having some fun. They played on the fact that many Call of Duty fans have been requesting to play Modern Warfare 3 on Xbox One via backwards compatibility for quite some time.

They posted a tweet shortly after this saying, ”Now please, find something else to tweet about.”
Modern Warfare 3 is available to purchase from the Microsoft Store for £24.99 or, alternatively, users can insert the Xbox 360 disc.
The first-person shooter developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games released in November 2011 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii. It’s the eighth title in the Call of Duty series and the third in the Modern Warfare saga.
The campaign focuses on the aftermath of the events in Modern Warfare 2. Task Force 141 (Soap MacTavish, Captain Price and Yuri) are tasked with hunting down the Russian terrorist Vladimir Makarov, alongside the Delta Force and SAS. Makarov is the leader of the Russian Ultranationalist party. He instigates terror attacks across Europe which result in a war between the Ultranationalists and friendly forces.
Games in the Call of Duty franchise are well known for their multiplayer experience, and this entry is no different. New multiplayer modes were introduced along with new killstreak options. Plus, the title solved many issues that existed in Modern Warfare 2 that weren’t solved.
It was reported back in March that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is currently in the process of being remastered.
