While this is a sequel to the 2019 game, it is not a remake of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” which was released in 2009 – g1 Rated the game in its time.
“We want to create the best Call of Duty with the best schedule ever and re-launch opportunities,” Rodrigo Perez, G1 franchise manager, told G1. “[Em relação ao game anterior]We have improved the artificial intelligence of the enemy, the visuals are revolutionary and we have created a unified technology that will be extended to the next series of games and also [battle royale] “War Zone”.

There is also the promise of never seeing content after release, such as new maps, modes, seasonal events, and public holidays.
g1 was accompanied by a presentation of this new “Call of Duty” by members of Infinity Ward Development Studio, which featured headline news. In Game Campaign Mode, players upgrade to Task Force 141 Campaign Mode with missions from around the world. We promise that you will be able to play online alone or in groups. “Warzone” mode, with one of the most popular fighting grand pianos of the moment “Fortnite” and “Free Fire”.
In 2019, when the studio released a reboot of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare”, a bet was placed on the search for realism that was impossible due to existing technology when the first series came out, in 2007. They retreated. The veterans and team of Infinity Ward’s first game traveled to places used for photogrammetry of homes, cars, furniture, and any other item. This allowed the game to have the “Real” that the team was looking for. In fact, the developer team claims it was the first game that was able to simulate the use of night-vision goggles. In previous games the presentation of this element was just a green filter.
Three years later, for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, the team used the same resources, but managed to improve the technology by using tricks that were not so popular on consoles and computers at the time. Ray Tracing, a feature that simulates in real time the way light rays illuminate the environment and reflect landscapes and objects, is featured on videos on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, and PC. With very high resolution textures (4K resolution), the game brings the environment, characters, weapons and situations closer to the real thing.

The team also invested in water exploration. It is difficult to reproduce an element in games. It requires great computing power and the result may be far from what society expects. The task for “CoD: Modern Warfare II” was to use water for the benefit of the players. “Water affects the game as much as the weather,” Perez said. The player will be able to dive to avoid enemies and also use stealth to eliminate them.
But not everything is an advantage. The effect of water lenses obscures the player’s vision, who will have to aim even more precisely to knock out opponents in both Campaign and Multiplayer modes. There is also a realistic shot fired from outside the water: the bullet loses speed and several shots are needed to kill a soldier – one shot from the water with the same weapon is enough.
In addition to night skirmishes and water missions, cars became more important. You will be able to drive cars, for example, that will take you to other points of the mission.
Another point that the developers have been working on for the last three years was artificial intelligence. In addition to making enemies respond more convincingly to a player’s attacks and strategies, seeking protection or reinforcement, the protagonist’s own companions are now smarter. In previous games, for example, at the beginning of the mission, you follow the soldiers on the battlefield. However, his movement was unlikely as he did not look as busy as the base would normally be.

In “Modern Warfare II” your companions are worried about everything: from every angle, window or angle, where the opponent may be hiding. During the battle they will be under cover and looking for the best support point of the attack. Demonstrate that g1 I watched, this question worked very well. Find out if the final version of the game will have these features.
One of the most distinctive features of the first “Modern Warfare”, the Gunsmith mode (“Gunsmith” in the English version) returns with even more features. This allows each weapon to be customized according to the player’s desire and need. The new game has even more details and features like optical sights, larger capacity cartridges, props and whatever weapons the real world has can be added. However, it should be noted that each pillar has advantages and disadvantages in battle. The options can be used both in the campaign and in the online match.
Another noteworthy point is that the game was presented in a higher quality version (PC, Xbox Series and PS5). PS4 and Xbox One versions not shown. It remains to be seen whether the previous generation of platforms will be able to reproduce the same level of graphic realism and artificial intelligence, weaker than the current one.

As the largest market in Latin America (Mexico is considered North America), Brazil is important to Activision and the launch of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II” is one of the most important of the year.
“.Society [de “Call of Duty”] Very strong in Brazil. We want to involve even more players for this release. “That’s why we’re giving the game a fully localized Portuguese language with the same quality as the previous works in the series,” explains Perez.
The franchise manager explains that the technology developed for this title, which will be spread to Warzone as well as future games, is likely to further strengthen the community and the series’ identity with it.
