The stories started spreading yesterday….somehow, footage of a remastered edition of Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 was showing up all over YouTube. It wasn’t just one user, or one video…many folks seemed to have access to it. There had definitely been a leak, and now the game’s existence was undeniable, but when would it be officially revealed?
We didn’t have to wait long. Within hours, Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered became publicly available on Playstation 4. Converted by dev studio Beenox, MW2’s campaign has been reborn with a modern graphical paint job. The levels, originally designed by Infinity Ward, are the same. We should point out that this is JUST the campaign mode…for reasons unclear to us, the multiplayer isn’t part of it.
Currently, Sony holds the exclusive to Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, but that will change. You can preorder the PC and XBox One versions of the game right now, and the PC version will boast improvements like an uncapped frame rate and ultrawide monitor support. As a console game, though, Modern Warfare 2 Remastered doesn’t look shabby on its own, with 4K resolution and HDR support.
“Modern Warfare 2 campaign was incredible. We all remember the lasting impression the story left upon us. This campaign was very special and we thank Infinity Ward for creating such an amazing experience,” said Thomas Wilson, co-studio head at Beenox. “Restoring and remastering this campaign for a new generation of players was a labor of love for our team. We wanted to make sure that the feelings and power of the story was accurately represented with full high-definition visuals and the latest audio fidelity.”
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is available now on Playstation 4.
