Attention PlayStation players! Join Task Force 141 up to seven days before the official launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 via a digital pre-order of the game on PlayStation.
Players who pre-order a digital edition of Modern Warfare II will gain early access to the game’s Campaign mode* as well as other rewards. Starting October 20, enjoy a full week to focus on the globetrotting single-player Operation before the full game launches on October 28.
Join classic heroes, new allies
Task Force 141 faces its greatest threat yet – a newly aligned threat with deep connections. The campaign includes missions in Europe, Asia and the Americas, and is intended to be an incredible experience on many levels: sieges at sea with submarine combat, explosive assaults 30,000 feet above enemy fortresses, and stakes high, low profile stealth missions in plain sight and under cover of darkness.
We’re excited to update PlayStation players on how Infinity Ward is approaching the campaign for this year’s release.
Game development is not an easy task. The collaboration between the studios is the central element in keeping the game’s development process on track. Having a well-rounded team is crucial to creating a AAA title, especially for the Modern Warfare franchise. Infinity Ward leverages the wealth of experience the team has gained in past games, film and television production to ensure this title can be the best possible game for the player base.
For Modern Warfare II, Infinity Ward will immerse players in a cutting-edge experience that will immerse players in stunning, action-packed gameplay, a reality that everyone can enjoy.
With enhanced graphics built via photogrammetry technology, the Modern Warfare II delivers impressive visual fidelity and will cover some of the finer details, like water physics and graphics, to create the most immersive experience yet.
Additionally, with improved shadow systems, the campaign will feature improved lighting to create an even more realistic ambience that will help players fully immerse themselves in Modern Warfare II’s single-player mode.
In addition to the upgrades you can see, Infinity Ward has gone beyond the upgrades you can hear. Through further engine enhancements, this has opened up new possibilities for better sound capture and new features including real-time mixing and natural limiting to help players focus on the task at hand, dive into the narrative and engage players throughout the missions.
With early access to the campaign, you’ll be fully prepared to roll out into the game’s multiplayer options when they open at game launch.
