- Call of Duty Modern Warfare III and Chase & Status new mixtape 2 Ruff, Vol. 1 both release today (Nov 10)
- ArrDee, King Combs, Fumez the Engineer, Swarmz and DJ Bou were in attendance of the star studded launch event
LONDON, Nov. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- To mark the release of the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III game, famous faces, lucky fans and gaming superstars were treated to the most unique DJ set of the year as Chase & Status played a headline show from the middle of a working airport baggage claim carousel.
Chase & Status played fan favourite tracks like 2023 smash Baddadan with Bou (ft. Irah, Trigga, Flowdan and Takura) – hours before the release of their new mixtape 2 Ruff, Vol.1 which features guest appearances from Stefflon Don, ArrDee, and Clementine Douglas.
In attendance at the MWIII launch event were Alex Iwobi, Fran Kirby, ArrDee, King Combs, and Love Island's Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page, who jumped straight onto the PS5™ banks to play the latest edition to the franchise.
The airport party was inspired by the beloved Call of Duty multiplayer map Terminal which was brought to life at a secret London location by Call of Duty® and PlayStation® and saw guests check-in, taken through security and into a buzzing Terminal experience.
"It's a big day tomorrow – it's been a fun campaign to get to this point. It's always exciting releasing an album but this year is extra special. All the shows have been amazing and the interaction with the fans too," said Chase & Status.
When asked about playing the Modern Warfare III event, they said, "It's a mad crossover with music and gaming in general – it's obviously a really cool thing to be part of."
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III launches on 10th November in the UK and will be available across all platforms: https://www.callofduty.com/playnow/modernwarfare3.
