What Is New Zealand Trick?

The New Zealand trick allows players to access the game before its release.

This is done by switching your region to New Zealand in your console.

As the time zone of New Zealand is quite ahead in comparison to other countries in North America or Europe.

Players have been using this trick for various games on different platforms.

Moreover, the trick is the fastest technique players use to play the game before it releases in their time zone.

However, this trick doesn’t always work for all kinds of games because the release date is kept the same for every region.

New Zealand’s trick for COD works the same way as any other game.

Further, this trick has worked for all other series of COD in the past.

The PC version of the Modern Warfare 3 is set to have a simultaneous worldwide launch.

This means everyone in different regions will have access to the game at the same time.

Players in New York can access the PC version of the game at 12 AM ET on November 10th.

While console players, be it Xbox or Playstation, will have a rolling release.

So, the game releases at 3 AM PT to 10 AM PT on 9 November in your respective time zone.

Due to the rolling release in the console, players in New Zealand will have early access to the game.
