Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has a release date. The 2019 sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is slated to release on October 28, 2022, according to the developers.

In a reveal trailer, publisher Activision and developer Infinity Ward also got gameplay impressions from this year’s game series for the first time, which will not continue in 2023 for the first time in 17 years. Instead, longer support for “Modern Warfare 2” is planned.

In a press release, the shooter’s creators promised that it should “open a new era for the franchise.” Can’t judge whether “Modern Warfare 2” will really be such a revolution from the trailer, which is 1:41 minutes long and accompanied by Metallica’s “Wherever You Roam.”

The most important information about the game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2:

Besides the promotion, the developers also revealed some information about the game. You can also find below

  • “Modern Warfare 2” is not a remake of the game of the same name from 2009, but a completely independent game. Players will only get to know a few old acquaintances from previous “Call of Duty” games. Including Captain John Price, Segant Kyle “Gas” Garrick, “Soap” McTavish, and Simon “Ghost” Riley.
  • After trips to World War II (“Vanguard”) and the Cold War (“Black Ops: Cold War”), the plot takes place – as the title suggests – in the near future.
  • As always, the story should be fictional, but at the same time inspired by real events. Captain Price and his team 141 once again hunt down the terrorist group Al-Qattalah all over the world. Another opponent enters the stage with a Mexican cartel.
  • In addition to new opponents, new allies also come into play: Mexican special units support the troops throughout the campaign. Given the war in Ukraine, the manufacturer wants to refrain from sensational and provocative scenes this time.
  • The developers not only attach importance to the realism of the characters in terms of graphic representation, but also – as with a good movie script – in terms of their credibility as part of the story. According to the promises of publisher Activision and Studio Infinity Ward, the latter should be more compelling than ever.

‘Modern Warfare 2’ wants to make PC and console games wet

  • An insight into the Wet Action mission shows that water will be an essential part of Modern Warfare 2’s stealth game mechanics: here, the game’s protagonists swim undetected through the port of Amsterdam. On the other hand, in the “Shipaf” mission, you are trying to prevent the launch of a hostile missile on a container ship in rough seas. Waves must be calculated accurately.

  • Artificial intelligence will also be improved so that opponents and allies act more like real people than ever before. In this way, the soldiers do not run blindly to their own doom, but advance in a supposedly targeted manner. A promise fulfilled in one form or another with each new Call of Duty game.
  • Overall, missions should offer more variety than ever. Shared responsibility: A larger fleet of vehicles (also on water, i.e. boats and amphibious vehicles).

The most important innovations in multiplayer

Other changes appear in the multiplayer mode:

  • You should also check out the so-called “Gun Smith” in which players modify their weapons with attachments. It should not only be possible to choose from different grips, sights, muzzles and the like, but it should also be possible to customize them.
  • Infinity Ward also promises more realistic movement mechanics. Among other things, heroes can now dive through windows to avoid bullets or shoot enemies while they are hung on ledges. Doors can be kicked, tires can be damaged. While driving, you can bend out of the window and shoot in all directions or climb into the loading area. It will also be possible to jump James Bond-style to another vehicle. Damage model should ensure realistic vehicles as well.
  • The maps will be categorized into battle maps for big battles and base maps for 6v6 players. The latter should be less spacious than before in order to intensify the battles.
  • The new modes are “Knockout” (a combination of Battle Royale and Gunfight) and “Prisoner Rescue”. In it, prisoners must be escorted safely to an exit point.
  • In addition, new gadgets are available such as a grenade that can penetrate surfaces, a tactical camera that warns of enemies by sound, a hack tool, or a dummy soldier.

The “war zone” is also in need of complete overhaul. The second part of the free “Call of Duty” Battle Royale mode will run in the “Modern Warfare 2” setting, but will follow at a later date. Another innovation: “Warzone” will also appear as a mobile version.

“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” will be released on October 28 for PS4/5, Xbox One, Series X/S, and PC. For the first time in five years, Modern Warfare 2, part of the Call of Duty series, will also appear on Steam and not exclusively on Blizzard’s Battle.net. Before that, there will be a free and open trial.
