News comes that MW2 will be featuring wide open gameplay that will have a lot of variety in it. This statement comes from Jason West, the President of Infinity Ward through an extensive ten-page feature in the Game Informer, US magazine. The feature article of the magazine also reveals some more key new details regarding the hotly-anticipated Modern Warfare 2.
It says that the plot of the game is set to a backdrop of continued Russian Federation instability. But it will make gamers flung from Siberia to Afghanistan and also through the slums of Rio De Janeiro.
The expectations of the game: chases on snowmobiles, a single-player experience which takes a bit longer to complete than the original Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Infinity Ward is actively trying to eliminate the endless respawning enemies which caused problems for sneakier players in the original Modern Warfare. There are also riot shields, movable turrets, customisable weapons, and of course more acrobatic player movements (now one can swim and even climb ice ledges), and a fully separate co-op mode that features its own levels.
Meanwhile, we covered a story about what gamers want in MW2 recently and we received good comments from readers and gamers. Keep on commenting on the article What gamers want of Modern Warfare 2
After the 10 seconds gameplay footage of Modern Warfare 2, the first hard details about it have emerged. The information of this sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has been leaked in one of the leading gaming magazine.
According to it, Modern Warfare 2 will be set several years after its predecessor. In the game, again the political instability inside a fictional near-future Russia threatens the world. The thread now will be in the form of a terrorist organization. One of the two heroes of the game, Sergeant “Soap” MacTavish, has been promoted to captain in the Special Air Services (SAS), Britain’s equivalent of the US Navy SEALs. This MacTavis, being part of a new commando unit, will be guiding the players through a series of grueling missions that also includes an ice-climbing infiltration of a frozen Russian army base.
Modern Warfare 2 will also address the issue of infinitely spawning enemies. It also boasts new “Special Forces” mode, which is very similar to the Mile High Club and the airplane-hijack level. Moreover, the hope of many, the cooperative campaign is MIA in Modern Warfare 2.
