At the Microsoft Event in LA, Infinity Ward unveiled the multiplayer mode for Modern Warfare 2.
The multiplayer already posted “Xbox 360 Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition Console” the presentation began with the unveiling of the Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition Xbox 360 console, (check out the previous article for more details) Once the Limited edition console was preseted Infinity Ward moved on to demonstate several of the new multiplayer features that will be available in the sequel.
Some of the new features are : Customizable killstreaks. Players can now choose which killstreaks they want enabled, with a list of unlockable streaks available in the pre game menu system. The Killstreak features included the UAV at 3 kills, a care package at 4 kills, which could consist of killstreak random bonus or ammunition, and at 11 kills a AC-130 Gunship to chop down your enemies like a hot knife through butter !!
New to Modern Warfare 2 multiplayers is the death streaks, these are bonuses earned for dying multiple times in a row .. (something a lot of us are used to doing). Such bonuses are : Copycat : This gifts you the class and weapons of the player that killed you after four consecutive deaths. The other bonus is a health increase after three deaths, this will become available after you respawn.
Infinity Ward also presented the new system called Callsign. This will allow all players to pic their own individual callsigns and rank emblems. This is extremely cool as it will grant you the ability to choose and pick different icons and titles however you wish.
Modern Warfare 2 is shaping up to being most certainly the game of the year for 2009. Check out some of the great multiplayer screenshots below.
Modern Warfare 2 will be out on sale on the 10th Of November for Xbox 360, Games for Windows and Playstation 3
