After days of determined, stony silence in the face of numerous leaks that include an Amazon listing, a trailer, and at least one full-on Let's Play video on YouTube, Activision has finally made it official: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is real. Not only that, it's out today—but only on the PlayStation 4.
As per PC Gamer, The PC version of Modern Warfare 2 will be available on Battle.net, and is set to come out in a month, on April 30. Pre-purchase links at callofduty.com aren't live yet, but should be soon.The PS4 version of Modern Warfare 2 Remastered will not be offered for sale in Russia, according to the Call of Duty Russia Twitter feed. It will be available in the country on PC and the Xbox One.
The updated release features improved textures and "revamped" animations, remastered audio, up to 4K resolution with HDR support on consoles, plus uncapped framerates and ultrawide monitor support on PC. Activision confirmed that the remaster features the full Modern Warfare 2 campaign, including No Russian, the infamous level based on a massacre of civilians at a Moscow airport that players can choose to take part in.
It does not include multiplayer or Spec Ops missions, however, as Activision is clearly trying to keep the online action focused on the Modern Warfare reboot and free-to-play battle royale Call of Duty: Warzone. Instead, players who pre-purchase the game will be given the Underwater Demo Team Classic Ghost Bundle, with a UDT Ghost skin, weapon blueprints, and other goodies that can be used in both of those games.
Call of Duty: Warzone is the latest smash hit in the Call of Duty franchise. The battle royale game recently reached the milestone of adding 30 million players within less than two weeks after launch. It has become the new battle royale sensation. The game had logged 6 million players on the day of its launch itself and within four days, that tally stood at 15 million.
Call of Duty Warzone has been launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms. The game is listed on Xbox Store and PlayStation Store just like any other Call of Duty title and can be downloaded from there. PC users will have to download the Activision’s PC game store app called Battle.net to download the game. For your PC, you need to have up to 175GB of free storage space regardless of the fact whether Call of Duty Modern Warfare sits in your game library with the latest patch or it is just Warzone you are trying to download.
