Video of demo at E3 in Los Angeles

June 7th, 2009

There were lots of questions raised as to why the term Call of Duty is not used in Modern Warfare 2 because it is the sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Robert Bowling, the community manager has given an explanation to this decision of the Infinity Ward.

Robert Bowling recently said to MTV that the game is called only Modern Warfare 2 because they want to emphasize on the fact that Modern Warfare is a direct sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. He said, “This has never happened inCall of Duty before. They’re typically their own campaigns and totally unrelated to the previous one. This one, is indeed a direct sequel and we just want to make that clear.”

The flipside to the Modern Warfare 2 title is that folks may not know that it is still essentially a CoD game.

Well! The demo of the game at E3 conference in Los Angeles was pulse pounding. It was awesome. Here is a video of the demo.

MW2 being unveiled at E3

June 2nd, 2009

MW2 will be unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo. (E3) Convention today. It will be a rare early look of the game. It seems that the Santa Monica-based studio is putting the finishing touches.

It will be like one of its seemingly impossible missions. Gamers, as an elite combat specialist, follow the task force leader Captain “Soap” MacTavish. He climb a sheer ice floe in Kazakhstan.

We will get the sound of the crunch as the ice ax and crampons penetrate the frozen cliff face. Gamers will attempt a death-defying leap a gap in a cliff ledge and at the moment when it looks as if gamers has fallen, McTavish grabs on and pulls to safety.

On the way gamers also join in Black Hawk Down-style urban fight in Rio de Janeiro. Even in infiltration of an Afghanistan cave camp and also wage underwater battles.

Its interesting. Right? All these leads to an enemy outpost where gamers are triggered with outmanned and outgunned diversionary explosions and they escape in a snowmobile chase rivaling the forest speeder-bike.
