MLG today announced that they are adding Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: World at War, and Call of Duty: Black Ops arenas back to GameBattles. You can sign up for competitions for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on GameBattles’s site.

 MLG is happy to announce the return of the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Arena within the GameBattles community. After feeling a bit nostalgic, we felt it was only right to bring back the Call of Duty that started it all and one of the most popular arena’s MLG has ever hosted.

We’re not stopping there, as we are also bringing back other classic Call of Duty titles like Call of Duty: World at War and Call of Duty: Black Ops arenas.

Here are the arena links:

  • This begins the discussion of who wants to put together a GB team? Hmmmm?

    • Hey, you changed your profile picture!

      • Yeah, Angel Mark Rubin was there long enough.

        • bsktballmsu1

          surprised you didn’t switch it to an angel michael condrey

        • Grenada!

          Fuck MR, nothing but lies from him and how he looks so fucking full of himself.

  • What about the hacking issues prominent in CoD4 and WaW. Future doesn’t look well I’d say, but this is still pretty cool news 🙂

    • Keshav Bhat

      GameBattle matches are played in private matches 🙂

      • Ryumoau

        thats good. 🙂

      • Cameron

        Unfortunately this doesn’t stop “hackers” being able to infiltrate GameBattles matches. For example, there is “hacks” out there such as “Unlimited UAV” which effectively shows the enemy on the minimap all the time and this kind of “hack” is undetectable by the other party so would make disputing the game a very tedious task if the other party suspected the user of cheating.

        • Macrox25

          The last time i played CoD4 competitive on PC, and this was many years ago, you had to record all your matches. If you could not provide your recording for the match in case of a dispute you automatically lost. Now i do not know how this goes on consoles but i guess in the higher money pools that there might be something like it with PVR’s?

      • That would make no difference

        • Grenada!

          I don’t think any of the people taking part in GameBattles will hack. Otherwise they would get put out and told to get to fuck and never come back again.

  • Plato/Tomato

    Ooh, I’d totally watch those.

  • TheShadowReaper

    sounds interesting. would totally watch any of those.

  • nick

    only thing is ps3 got cod4 servers shut down

    • Unknown

      No they didn’t. They’re still very much active on PS3.

    • SwaggedOutBlade

      No they didn’t I was playing cod4 on ps3 a couple days ago..

  • JackOrJohn

    I thought it said they’re returning to be release on next gen lol

    • Carrisi

      That would be amazing! I’m buy COD4 and BO in a heartbeat on next gen

    • Rorke File

      COD4 has to be remade for next gen, only ad new graphics and some changes there and here and they done and the fans are happy ..

    • Baruck obuma

      i would buy them all on ps4

  • SkylineDesigns

    yes cod4 gbs are back!

  • Hell yeah! They should definitely do a throwback tourney.

  • GodLikeLeftNut

    PC? 🙁 id love to watch some CoD4 PC competitive again

  • jordanxbrookes

    Good I miss the good ol’ days when gamebattles were actually interesting.

  • MichiganerE

    Finally, something that’s not Ghosts.

    • Ryumoau

      yeah. i’d love to watch gamebattles of Black ops 1.

      • MichiganerE

        Agreed, I may watch GBs again.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Early drawing of the Razorback VTOL in Advanced Warfare in case anyone’s interested.

  • Dylan

    Can someone please confirm or deny the existence of this? Don’t want to get too excited until I know it’s real

    • hazard0us1997

      i assume not because these few things
      1. we already have the ratings for all 3 games, why would it be rating pending?
      2.on the cover there is only activision’s logo, none else
      3.why would CoD AW be associated with this at all?
      4. Also the IW logo and the SHG logo both don’t have any (TM) or (R) marks, so all my assumptions, though it would be AMAZING it seems to not be real.

    • jordanxbrookes

      It’s fake. The cover art would surely have art from all 3 Modern Warfare’s rather than just MW2.

    • Keshav Bhat


    • Snappy

      Activision already confirmed it was fake.

    • PC United Forces Commander

      This would be epic if they did! Also if it was real there would be a PC version too. Can’t just release for Console only.

    • Will

      They would never sell another cod again if they let this come out

    • This is about as fake as adding a tenth class to TF2:

  • r.i.p pc

  • Guest

    real or fake???

    • Fake, that art of the Bonus weapon is so ‘under-detailed’.

      • Yep, fake.
        If you want to know why, read my reply I did to another guest.

  • Guest

    real or fake??

    • It’s definitely fake.

      • I agree. Adding a stereotypical alien to Extinction is a horrible idea, except if that was the puppetmasters. The color is right, but the spacing through the letters prove it’s fake.
        Also, if it was real, below “Nemesis” it would say “FIRST ON XBOX LIVE”,
        and the thumbnails would be better textured.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Dat alien though XD

    • sadface

      is real

  • MrHotShot118

    Hint Hint! HD remasters coming soon! i reckon that will be said at the end of the first live stream.

    • Grenada!

      If they re-made CoD4 with CoD4’s multiplayer, it would sell more than AW, no joke. I would love to see a re-make of CoD4 but mostly WaW would be better since I love WW2 games and how it’s got history to it.
