Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 launches with three new multiplayer game modes, including one that shares some similarities with Ubisoft Rainbow Six Siege.
The three new game modes were revealed on Duty: Next, who shared a first look at Modern Warfare 2multiplayer in action.
the first of Modern Warfare 2The new game modes, Prisoner Rescue, were teased in the shooter’s first multiplayer trailer. In Prisoner Rescue, two teams are tasked with rescuing their opponent’s hostage and defending their own.
A 6v6 game mode with no respawns and team revives enabled, the trailer shows players using a range of gadgets to secure victory, including a deployable camera and ceiling-mounted explosives launcher.
As for the second new one Modern Warfare 2 game mode, titled Knockout, Infinity Ward has described it as a “very fast, very tactical round-based 6v6 mode.” Like Prisoner Rescue, Knockout causes the team to revive, but no respawns; and is won by taking out the enemy team or holding a pack.
Invasion is the third new multiplayer mode to be revealed and is much more chaotic than the other modes. Invasion is a 32v32 mode that takes place on “expanded maps” where the sole purpose is to kill or be killed. In addition to competing with other players, Invasion will also feature AI fighters to deal with.
In addition to these three new modes, Infinity Ward has also teased an “all new experience” titled Raids, which will be released in the months to come. Modern Warfare 2‘s launch. While there aren’t too many details available, Raids will be a 3v3 game mode that places a lot more emphasis on playing strategically and working together as a team.
Modern Warfare 2 also marks the return of Special Ops, a two-player mode in which friends take on “asymmetrical” challenges. For example, Call Of Duty: Next outlined that while one player may be placed on the ground, another may be responsible for air support.
War Zone 2.0 will also get a “all-new sandbox experience” at launch, which is said to be a Escape from Tarkov-style extraction shooter.
