We're all anxiously awaiting the first official details for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 , but in the meantime, why not consider some unofficial information supposedly taken from a play tester?
A large list of details have popped up over at GamePlanets, and while none of this is confirmed, a lot of it seems perfectly plausible. For example, we're looking at the return of vehicles (including helicopters) and most of your favorite weapons, new weapons (including a new sniper rifle and two new assault rifles), and a grand total of 35 weapons for what is guaranteed to be an awesome multiplayer mode. We see a KillCam save feature, offline and online co-op, and the nifty addition of special grass camouflage for snipers. But perhaps most importantly, it seems we'll be looking at a November release for Modern Warfare 2 , which seems possible. They did give it an estimated 2009 launch when they first unveiled the game, and November would be the perfect time for its arrival. It could compete with Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves as the biggest holiday release of the year, and we can always use another awesome FPS, right? The original CoD4 set the bar quite high, but we have confidence that Infinity Ward will leap over that bar without much trouble. That's one talented team.
We always like to look down the road a ways to see what's coming for the holidays, even if it is only March. Modern Warfare 2 is easily one of the most massive releases of 2009, so we're going to keep a definite eye on it.
