Habitat for Humanity: Our Dev Team Creatively Gives Back


Over the weekend we went from game builds, to building for charity. In this particular event, hosted by Habitat for Humanity, we came together to build a playhouse that’s customized based on our style. The playhouse will go on to be auctioned off to the highest bidder to raise funds to build houses for families in need. Giving back to the community is an important tradition at Sledgehammer Games, and we definitely encourage our fans to do the same. Check out the Habitat for Humanity site for a program near you!

Sledgehammer Games & Gamestop Present: PowerUp Rewards - Modern Warfare 3 Epic Reward Combat Experience


For the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 we paired up with GameStop to give away the ultimate Epic Rewards Combat Experience.  The winners flew out to San Francisco for a tour of Sledgehammer Games, and then on to Minnesota for a day of tank driving and combat simulation!  The winners, along with Michael Condrey and Josh Katz from Sledgehammer Games, were given time to understand military vehicle history, tour of the storage and restoration facilities, and driving time in an FV433 Abbot and FV432 APC.  The day culminated in pancaking cars in a 120,000 lbs. Chieftain Battle Tank, and live-ammo time with three historical machines gun in the indoor range!  Congrats to the lucky winners, George and Massi of Houston, Texas, who forever get to brag about their awesome time with the MW3 developers at the studio and the tank driving experience. Check out the pictures below for all the metal twisting carnage.
