The upcoming shooter is set to launch on October 28, and today’s livestream has confirmed that it will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. A Steam page for the game has also launched.

Aside from a couple of briefer teasers earlier in the month, this is the first trailer for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 that shows the game itself. The trailer shows a campaign that seems incredibly stealth-oriented with plenty of silent takedowns and infiltration missions, however several major gunfights break out on a busy highway and a boat that looks like Modern Warfare‘s classic Shipment map.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare, and the trailer shows several of the game’s characters – including fan-favourites Ghost, Price and Soap – make their return.

As for the plot, a preview from IGN shares that Modern Warfare 2‘s campaign will follow Taskforce 141 dealing with the repercussions of a US airstrike assassinating a hostile foreign general. The water-based scenes spotted in the trailer will also feature heavily in the campaign, as it will be a way for players to sneak across maps and escape from unwanted attention.

Though today’s video is light on in-game footage, fans won’t have to wait long for a closer look. Tomorrow (June 9) Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will feature as part of Summer Game Fest, where “the world premiere of a gameplay level” will be revealed.
