‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered’ goes live on Xbox One and PC

Share

A month after being released as a PlayStation exclusive, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is coming to the Xbox One and PC.

This is great news for fans of the Call of Duty series as it is one of the best single player games out there. The game is now available on those two consoles for just $20 on both the Microsoft Store and Battle.net.

Same as the PlayStation release, the game still doesn’t feature a multiplayer mode. However, buying the remaster does give in-game freebies on both the Modern Warfare multiplayer and Warzone.

Purchasing the game includes freebies such as a couple of weapon blueprints, an emblem and a cool finishing move named “Belly Flop”. The remastered game features improved animations and textures. It now offers HDR support for Xbox One.

On the other hand, on its PC version, fans can now play the game at uncapped 4K framerates. In addition, it also now has support for ultra-wide monitors. The remaster includes the entire campaign from the original 2009 game but now with updated graphics and audio.

Release time

The scheduled release date for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is April 30. Unlike recent games that unlock by midnight, Activition chose for a global release time later in the day.

The game will be released on the PC and Xbox at 5PM GMT (3:00AM ACT). The game is still not available on Steam and other PC gaming clients.

Preloading the game

It is possible to install the game early while waiting for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered to be released in your region.

The game is expected to hit a gigantic 45GB on the Xbox One and 80GB on the PC. It is recommended to preorder the game and download it ahead of its time of release.

This will guarantee that fans can play the game as soon as it is released.

With the ongoing global pandemic bringing incomparable stress on online services such as Xbox Live, preloading will help players avoid possible slow download speeds especially during release time.

Free Underwater Demo Team

The Underwater Demo Team Classic Ghost Bundle is free once you purchase Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered.

It contains additional content players can use in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer, Special Ops, and Warzone. The freebie also includes a Ghost operator skin for Ghost.
