Another Year, Another Expensive Car Based On A Video Game

Welcome to 2011. Where not only are video game franchises annualised, but expensive, real cars bearing their branding are as well.

The Call of Duty Jeep Wrangler, which was released last year in honour of Call of Duty: Black Ops, will be re-released this year, only now with Modern Warfare 3 branding all over it instead.

You'll note that the major changes made to this year's model over last year's are about as important as those made between Call of Duty games; as in, not many.

This includes a bumper redesign in the front that spaces the fog lights further apart, an update hood with several functional mesh relieves, new wheels, and a rear bumper that can be filled with water for "a variety of uses".

No word on price (or which wheels you get for pre-ordering with which car dealer), but for reference last year's model cost a hair over $US30,000.

    Excellent prestige edition.

    Did they really need to add "for a variety of uses"...?
    If your customers don't know what water can be used for then they are too stupid to have money and should promptly buy this jeep...

    Anyone that actually buys this is dead to me (unless they have copious amounts of money to waste).

    must say the water bit is a good idea. pity they are terrible for 4wheel driving unless u spend ALOT of time modding it. ill stick to a land cruiser

      Obviously the PC version then, if it needs that much modding.

    Marketing has gotten so lazy!

    Can't wait for EA to one-up Activision with a helicopter =D

    The glasses I can almost understand, wear em while you play CoD.

    But this.. Well, I suppose you can drive it to get cheetos and redbull for when you play CoD.

    I love Jeeps, especially Wranglers but this COD branding is tacky and totally unneccessary. Just another cash grab typical activision stuff...

    Lol more BF fanboy hypocrisy/stupidity.

    "ZOMG there is a CoD car, that's so gay!!!"

    BF show off a jet;

    "ZOMG so cool bro!!!"

      I do believe there is a slight difference between a jet and a car... just saying...

      Oh also, they're not trying to sell it to you, lol

    Wow, Activision really know how to milk a franchise don't they?

    I think the only franchise that's worse is Angry Birds.

    I eagerly await an Angry Birds motor vehicle.

      wouldn't that be a slingshot that shoots u wherever u want to go?

    If they release a Duke Nukem Hummer I am in
