In a move sprung upon gamers across the world in the most sudden of sudden fashions, Modern Warfare 2 is back – available right now on Xbox One and PC!
Releasing around a month ago on PS4, it’s finally time for us Xbox fans to get our hands on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered on Xbox One – for the asking price, there surely is no better deal when you take into account just how revolutionary and breathtaking Modern Warfare 2 was when it released way back in 2009.
If you somehow aren’t too clued up on what the second instalment into the Modern Warfare saga of games entails, then allow me to get you up to speed. The game follows the original Modern Warfare, in which you managed to finally take down the dastardly ultra-nationalist Imran Zakhaev, prompting the next baddie, Vladimir Makarov, to effectively take his place and spearhead a new wave of terror over the Western world. Ol’ Vladimir is killing innocents, committing acts of mass terror and ultimately trying to bring the West down to its knees: cue Task Force 141 to enter the fray and attempt to restore peace to what is now a world ruled by nuclear weapons and the like.
That means you will be following the journey of the heroic Soap MacTavish, determined Simon “Ghost” Riley and everyone’s man crush Captain John Price through a number of death-defying missions that truly justify the blockbuster appeal of Modern Warfare 2. Long-time fans of the game will no doubt relish in reliving such missions like Cliffhanger, Whiskey Hotel and (dare I say it) No Russian, and the added bonuses of enhanced graphics is simply the cherry on top of this adrenaline-fuelled, explosive cake.
As with all remasters, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered has been given the full makeover, with improved textures, high dynamic range lighting, and supremely better animations to ensure the player is never removed from the jaw-dropping immersion that the visuals, audio and gameplay supply.
If that hasn’t settled you on a purchase, then the inclusion of the Ghost Operator bundle might just give you that little extra incentive to do so. This gifts you the UDT Ghost Operator for use in 2019’s Modern Warfare, as well as the free-to-play Warzone that is taking the world by storm as of late.
At the end of the day – for both COD veterans yearning for a hit of nostalgia, or newbies who want to get into what is one of the biggest gaming franchises on this planet – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered should more than suffice if you want to feel like starring in your very own action flick.
For £19.99, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered can be yours from the Xbox Store, on PC or indeed on PS4. But if you are still in need of a little more research, then our recent article of ‘Looking Back’ to the original release of Modern Warfare 2 may be useful.
