Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will kick off a new era for the franchise when it releases worldwide on Friday, 28 October. Developer Infinity Ward has left no stone unturned to create a new heart-pounding experience for players. Task Force 141’s next global campaign is an immersive world-class multiplayer. An evolved Special Ops experience carefully crafted with gameplay and technical innovations will introduce fans to the new era of Call of Duty.
According to the creators, Modern Warfare II is the game’s most ambitious rollout ever across the franchise. Its state-of-the-art experience is set to reshape the famed series and appeal to Call of Duty players everywhere. A new Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 will also be revealed later this year with a new on the go mobile experience.
However, Task Force 141 faces the greatest threat yet which is a newly aligned menace with deep, yet unknown, connections. In the game, familiar heroes will return and new allies will be formed in the globe-trotting operation, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
As per the developers, this campaign is set to be an incredible experience on numerous levels like offshore sieges with underwater combat, all-out explosive assaults from 30,000 feet above enemy strongholds, and more. Deploying alongside you, are the iconic squadmates, Team leader Captain John Price; seasoned sergeant Kyle Garrick a.k.a Gaz; the lone wolf himself, fan-favourite Simon Riley a.k.a. Ghost; fearless Sergeant John MacTavish a.k.a. Soap; as well as the newest team member, Colonel Alejandro Vargas, an incorruptible tier-one operator and member of the Mexican Special Forces.
After the Campaign, players can join up with their duo for evolved Special Ops. This tactical co-op mode advances your team-building skills and sets the scene for the gameplay available in the world-class multiplayer.
Those who preorder and drop into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Multiplayer at launch will be among the first to try out and level up the multiple base weapons, explore a wide range of maps and modes, and meet an international cast of operators, and more. The first to the fight will also be well-prepared for an incredible post-release calendar, set to include a massive amount of free post-launch content drops.
Starting with Modern Warfare II, the new title features the latest next-generation engine that first debuted with Modern Warfare (2019). Per creators, Modern Warfare II will be the most advanced Call of Duty in history, with a truly immersive experience with stunningly realistic sound, lighting, and graphics. It features a physically based material system allowing for state-of-the-art photogrammetry, a new hybrid tile-based streaming system, a new PBR decal rendering system, world volumetric lighting, 4K HDR, as well as a new GPU geometry pipeline combined into a massive cinematic Campaign. The game also features a new advanced AI system wherein enemies and friendlies alike across Campaign and Special Ops act tactically using combat and cover manoeuvring techniques that would be second nature to a tier-one operator.
Development on the all-new, dynamic Warzone 2.0 experience is also being led by Infinity Ward, along with Raven Software. The players can expect more intel on a new sandbox mode and the brand-new playspace prior to launch.
