Kotaku has dropped a payload of leaked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare details covering everything from the locations and characters of the single player campaign to the precise number of maps in the multiplayer mode. Find out more about the characters you'll be playing as, the new vehicles you'll be driving and the new locations you'll be blowing up in the huge info blowout below. Spoilers ahead .

The single player campaign will be set across 15 missions. It will pick up where Modern Warfare 2 left off with the invasion of Manhattan by Russian forces. As with previous Modern Warfare titels the campaign will skip between many different locations across the world, and have you playing as a number of different characters, not all of whom will survive.

Locations include Manhattan, the catacombs of Paris, India and Dubai. YOu'll be playing as a Russian Federal Protective Services agent, an SAS Operative and a tank gunner. We can also look forward to the return of the AC-130 gunship from previous Modern Warfare titles. Kotaku have released VERY spoilery details of the single player campaign here .

The multiplayer mode will contain 20 maps, though it's not certain at the moment how many of these will be in the game on launch, and how many will be released as map packs after launch. The excellent co-op Spec Ops mode of Modern Warfare 2 will make a return as well, and will be split into "survival" and "mission" modes. Five survival maps and seven mission maps are listed, some of which may be cut or altered before release.
