Call of Duty Modern Warfare II is set to kick off a new era for the Call of Duty franchise when it launches worldwide on October 28, 2022. Activision and Infinity Ward are touting Modern Warfare II as the most ambitious and innovative Call of Duty to date.
While that still remains to be seen, let’s take a look at what players can expect when Modern Warfare II launches this fall.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare II Details
Fully fledged campaign
Modern Warfare II’s campaign has you fighting as a member of the iconic and legendary squad Task Force 141. The game features familiar heroes including Captain Price, Ghost, Soap, Gaz and Laswell. As well, you will encounter a host of lethal new allies like Mexican Special Forces, Colonel Alejandro Vargas and adversaries from the murkiest corners of the global war on terror.
You’ll be challenged to work together to neutralize a terrorist conspiracy and attack on the US in missions across Europe, Asia and the Americas. The team at Infinity Ward promises that the campaign will offer an experience unlike any previous Call of Duty game. It includes offshore sieges with underwater combat, all-out explosive assaults from 30 000 feet above enemy strongholds, and high-stakes, low-profile stealth missions.
You’ll be able to play the campaign solo by yourself or with a team for immersive multiplayer combat. There is also an evolved Special Ops game mode. It features a tactical co-op mode that promotes team-building skills, and also sets the scene for the near-endless hours of gameplay available in multiplayer.
New gameplay innovations
Modern Warfare II’s gameplay continues to innovate on Modern Warfare’s gameplay. It will feature what Infinity Ward is calling a memorable new take on classic boots-on-the-ground gameplay. You’ll need to strategically consider the role of night vision, stealth, amphibious assaults, vehicular warfare, and more.
Additionally, Modern Warfare II includes improvements in AI that affect each game experience, including squad mate positioning and enemy patterns to NPCs and civilian movement, and much more. Best of all, they all dynamically react to your choices.
Finally, a new gunsmith will provide players with a massive amount of weapon customization.
The new generation of Call of Duty
Call of Duty Modern Warfare II is Infinity Ward’s first “next generation” game. For the first time in Call of Duty history, the team is using one unified Call of Duty engine across the franchise. This begins with Modern Warfare ll and Warzone 2.0.
This game engine builds on the engine that debuted with Modern Warfare. It features the best tech from across the studios to deliver the most advanced engine ever in Call of Duty. New technology including new toolchains, AI and locomotion models have been refined.
Finally, Modern Warfare ll features a physically based material system. This allows for state-of-the-art photogrammetry, a new hybrid tile based streaming system, new PBR water and underwater decal rendering system, world volumetric lighting, 4K HDR, and more as well as a new GPU geometry pipeline.
