After years of rumour and speculation, yesterday’s leaks pried the final nails from Activision’s box of secrets and outed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered. Now, it’s here. The is out now for PlayStation 4, as a timed exclusive before coming to other platforms… because reasons?
With a (Captain) Price of £19.99/€24.99/$19.99, you can grab it now from the PlayStation Store and pretend like it’s 2009 and not 2020.
As you might have figured out from the ‘Campaign Remastered’ shoved on the end of the game’s name, this is the Modern Warfare 2 campaign remastered for modern consoles by Beenox. The game now sports 4K support and HDR on consoles, and an unlocked framerate and ultrawide monitor support for PC… whenever that gets released.
While the game’s co-op and multiplayer still remains one of the favourites amongst fans, these are not included. That’s despite the multiplayer being an integral part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered when that came out in 2017.
Buying the game also includes the Classic Ghost Bundle of skins and cosmetic items for both 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the free version of Call of Duty: Warzone. It includes:
- UDT Ghost operator skin from the MW2 mission The Only Easy Day… Was Yesterday
- Task Force and One For One weapon blueprints
- Flippers weapon charm
- Belly Flop finishing move
- “Stay Frosty” voice quip
- No Easy Days player card
- Ghost emblem
- 2 Battle Pass tier skips
You can also pre-purchase the game on Xbox One and PC and get the bundle, but Activision aren’t telling on when you’ll get the actual game. Honestly, I hope everyone on those platforms tells Activision to go Foxtrot themselves over that.
There had been reports of the game since 2018 where a leak suggested that only the campaign of the game would get a remaster. Then last year a PEGI listing appeared for Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered, and a few days ago the reliable South Korean ratings board it as well. The final piece of the puzzle came yesterday, as a store listing went up on the German PlayStation Store – heck, some were even able to buy it and start streaming the game – while Charlie Intel managed to rip the above trailer.
Call of Duty fans are spoiled for choice at the moment, with Warzone launched earlier this month, a free to play battle royale tie in with 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reimainging. Whether you want something old, something new, or something battle royale, it seems COD has got you covered right now…
