New Xbox World now on sale: Modern Warfare 3 launch special

Huge COD Elite feature, plus Hitman Absolution exclusive and big reviews of Skyrim, Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3

Today is a good news day: the latest issue of Xbox World is on sale. Our cover star is a Modern Warfare 3 launch special. It kicks off with a 10 page feature on the game-changing COD Elite, the life-swallowing community service that will change the way you play COD - and every other shooter - forever. We follow that up with a comprehensive review of Modern Warfare 3, talking about single player, spec-ops and multiplayer. Does it stack up to the awesome Battlefield 3? Is Captain Price's moustache more manly than the beards in Skyrim? The answers to all these questions are in the issue...

Elsewhere in the mag we go behind the scenes of that killer Hitman Absolution trailer and find out, direct from the developers, the different ways 47 could have played that one level. We also predict what's next for Halo 4 and chat to 343 Industries about how they remade Halo Combat Evolved.

And, if you want reviews, we've got you covered: Skyrim, Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, Assassin's Creed Revelations, WWE 12 and more go under the Xbox World microsope.

You'll find it in all good newsagents and supermarkets.
