Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a first-person shooter video game developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision. Development for the game began in 2008, when it was still known as Call of Duty 6. Infinity Ward was inspired by real-life conflicts when developing the campaign mode. They initially tested the multiplayer mode by playing an in-house beta version of the game. Modern Warfare 2 was officially announced on February 11, 2009. Teasing of the game began in March, with short trailers being released for the game and, eventually, a full reveal trailer.
Modern Warfare 2 has been critically acclaimed by various gaming websites as one of the greatest first-person shooters of all time. Within 24 hours of release, the game sold approximately 4. 7 million copies in North America and the United Kingdom. As of 2013, the game has sold 22. The gameplay of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 revolves around fast-paced gunfights against enemy combatants. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has three different game modes: Campaign, Spec Ops, and Multiplayer. Campaign is a single-player mode where the player completes eighteen levels connected by an overarching plot. Multiplayer mode allows players to compete against each other in team-based and deathmatch-based game types on various maps. Each game type has an objective that requires unique strategies to complete. During the single-player campaign, the player controls five different characters from a first-person perspective.
The player primarily controls Sergeant Gary “Roach” Sanderson, a British member of an international Special Forces unit named Task Force 141. Despite the efforts of the U. Marine Corps and British Special Air Service in the previous game, the ultranationalists seize control of the Russian Federation, making Imran Zakhaev a martyr and straining diplomatic relations with the United States. In 2016, Private First Class Joseph Allen participates in a military operation alongside United States Army Rangers stationed in Afghanistan, by assisting them in taking back a city from insurgents. Impressed by Allen’s capabilities, General Shepherd recruits him into Task Force 141. Allen is soon sent on an undercover mission for the CIA, joining Vladimir Makarov in a mass shooting at an airport in Moscow, Russia. Price agrees to help Task Force 141 but insists on ending the United States’ war with Russia.
After raiding a Russian port, Price launches a ballistic missile towards Washington, D. Afghanistan, and Makarov’s safehouse on the Georgian-Russian border. Roach and Simon “Ghost” Riley successfully raid the safehouse, but are then betrayed and murdered by Shepherd. It soon becomes evident that Shepherd is the catalyst of the Russian-U. Price and Soap learn of Shepherd’s betrayal and escape a battle between his and Makarov’s forces at the boneyard. After learning of Shepherd’s mountain base in Afghanistan from Makarov, Price and Soap raid the base to take revenge on Shepherd in a suicide mission. The duo pursue Shepherd’s boat, and Price manages to shoot down his helicopter extraction as he and Soap tumble over a waterfall. Modern Warfare 2 was originally announced as Call of Duty 6.
The game was first announced under the title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by Activision on December 3, 2008. This announcement was received poorly by some members of the PC community, eventually instigating a response from Infinity Ward in an attempt to put the community at ease. The game utilizes the in-house IW 4. 0 game engine, which is claimed to be a generation beyond the capabilities of the engine used in Call of Duty 4. On March 25, 2009, a teaser trailer for the game was revealed at the Game Developer Choice Awards ceremony in San Francisco. On July 21, 2009, Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling revealed through Twitter that a Modern Warfare 2 controller was in the works. The original teaser trailer confirmed that the game’s title of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was officially shortened to just Modern Warfare 2. The standard version consists of the game and an instructional manual, and is the only version available for the Microsoft Windows platform. On September 15, 2009, Activision and Microsoft jointly announced a special, limited Modern Warfare 2 version of the Xbox 360 with a 250GB hard disk.
