Hold onto your Kevlar kids. Lots of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 details are coming your way, thanks to a poster over at GiantBomb, who uploaded a bunch of pages (and long list of various spoiler-y details) from Game Informer’s June issue. The issue features a 10-page exclusive on the eagerly awaited title, so to get the full story, you’ll want to pick it up when it hits newsstands.
There are quite a bit of details to process, but some of the ones that stuck out to me were: Special Forces co-op mode (think the "Mile High Club" epilogue from COD 4), customizable weapons for enemies (I hate fair!), climbing ice walls (Come on!), snowmobile shootouts and escapes (My joy tears are frozen to my face), and journeying across desert landscapes and clearing enemies out of caves (So...dry...and...awesome). Needless to say, the heart of the little girl that lives inside me just skipped several beats and then exploded.
The other intriguing tidbit is that MW2 is said to feature more “open-ended” gameplay. Given how Infinity Ward has meticulously refined their funneling approach to gameplay up to this point in the franchise, it will be interesting to see how they handle going open-ended. Of course, since pretty much everything IW touches turns to gaming gold, I'm not too worried about it. November 10 never seemed so far away.
There’s obviously lots more about the game that we still don’t know, but based on what you’ve heard so far, what features are you most excited to see in action?
