Biggest Differences We Noticed In Modern Warfare 2 | Screen Rant

Infinity Ward recently revealed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and the upcoming title looks to build upon its 2009 predecessor. The Modern Warfare sub-series, which kicked off in 2007, brought players out of World War 2 and into the modern era of military combat. After the poor sales of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Ghosts, Infinity War rebooted the trilogy with 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Now the sequel has been officially revealed, sparking many comparisons to the beloved original Modern Warfare 2.

2009's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 served as a direct sequel to Infinity War's first modern-day first-person shooter experience. The game's single-player campaign makes players a member of Task Force 141, an elite squad that fights to stop a Russian terrorist organization. The storyline brings back key figures from the first Modern Warfare, including Captain John Price and John "Soap" MacTavish, while introducing new faces like Simon "Ghost" Riley. Modern Warfare's iconic multiplayer mode built upon its predecessor, delivering a robust progression system and iconic maps like Terminal and Rust. The Spec Ops mode let player tackle additional challenge in single-player or cooperative multiplayer, and this breadth of content has let Modern Warfare 2 retain active players more than a decade after launch.

As a sequel to the 2019 Modern Warfare reboot, the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 looks to have many similarities to its predecessor from 2009. The game is set to reintroduce multiple key characters from the 2009 game, including John "Soap" MacTavish and Simon "Ghost" Riley. 2022's Modern Warfare 2 will also feature a host of different game modes including a single-player campaign, a cooperative Special Ops mode and a vast multiplayer space. However, despite these similarities, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will also make distinct changes from its 2009 predecessor.

Players went to various different countries in classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 maps, and Task Force 141 looks to be visiting even more exotic locations in the new title. The recent reveal trailer hints that Mexico will be a central location this time around, with the Mexican Special Forces teaming up with Task Force 141 to presumably take down a common enemy. The globe-trotting single-player mode is said to take place in Europe, Asia and the Americas, which will let players touch down in locations that were never a factor in the original Modern Warfare 2.

These brand-new locations will be brought to life by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's modern engine, which is staggering compared to its 2009 counterpart. Both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 will feature state-of-the-art features like physics-based materials, a unique rendering system and advanced lighting systems that make its maps photorealistic. The world of Modern Warfare 2 will be brought to life in 4K HDR, and an advanced new artificial intelligence system will let allies and enemies alike behave realistically and tactically in combat.

The upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 looks to maintain the core tenants of the first-person shooter sub-series by delivering an intense single-player campaign and a huge variety of multiplayer content. However, new locations and a brand-new engine will make for a truly original experience. While the reveal trailer got mixed reactions from fans, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 looks to live up to its name by effectively modernizing the 2009 classic.
