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.
