Infinity Ward and Activision have confirmed that the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will offer full LAN support, including match customisation options.
As Call of Duty fans have pointed out, Electronic Arts' upcoming rival, Battlefield 3, does not support LAN play.
'MW3 has LAN along with detailed class restriction control + default class creation option,
Infinity Ward mouthpiece Robert Bowling.
Players will have the option to outlaw any specific weapons, equipment, perks, death streaks or attachments on their own LAN servers, Bowling went on to say.
Activision has previously confirmed that Modern Warfare 3 will support dedicated servers too, in response to fan reaction to their removal from Modern Warfare 2.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be released on 8 November, 2011. Read our Modern Warfare 3 preview
