In addition to the campaign, this year’s Call of Duty will rollout with the all-new Call of Duty Warzone 2.0, an all-new mobile experience that will bring Call of Duty: Warzone on the go, one unified engine across both Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0, RICOCHET Anti-Cheat which will release on day one of Modern Warfare II and the new Warzone, and Call of Duty coming back to Steam on PC with Modern Warfare II.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II follows Task Force 141 and the group faces its greatest threat yet – a newly aligned meance with deep, yet unknown, connections. Familar heroes such as Kyle “Gaz” Garrick, Simon “Ghost” Riley, John “Soap” MacTavish, and Team Leader Captain John Price return along with new characters such as the newest member of Task Force 141, Colonel Alejandro Vargas, an incorruptible Tier 1 Operator and member of the Mexican Special Forces. The campaign will feature offshore sieges with underwater combat, all-out explosive assaults from 30,000 feet above enemy strongholds, and high-stakes, low-profile stealth missions in plain sight and under the cover of darkness. Missions will take place over the world including Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
The new evolved Special Ops is a tactical co-op mode that will advance players’ team-building skills and sets the stage for multiplayer. Multiplayer in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will feature new ways to play and numerous gameplay innovations including a revamped Gunsmith that will offer more customization than ever before. The game’s post-release calendar is set to include a massive amount of free post-launch content drops that will feature new maps, modes, and blockbuster special events that can’t be missed.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will be the most advanced Call of Duty in history with stunningly realistic sound, lighting, and graphics. The new entry will feature 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 geometry pipeline. The game also features a new advanced AI system so enemies and friendlies alike so they will act tactically using combat and cover maneuvering techniques that would be second nature to a Tier 1 Operator.
