Fans can play ‘Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’ early if they pre-order

The campaign mode will unlock a week ahead of release

It’s been confirmed that fans will be able to play Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s campaign mode a week early, if they’ve pre-ordered.

A statement from Activision reads: “Anyone who preorders a digital edition of Modern Warfare 2 will receive early campaign access in addition to a host of other previously announced rewards. This grants you up to a week to complete the incredible multimission, single-player, globe-trotting operation before the full game launches.”

A description of the campaign explains how “familiar heroes return and new allies are formed as Task Force 141 faces its greatest threat yet – a newly aligned menace with deep, yet unknown connections.”


“This campaign features missions in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, and is set to be an incredible experience on numerous levels: offshore sieges with underwater combat, all-out explosive assaults from 30,000 feet above enemy strongholds, and high-stakes, low-profile stealth missions in both plain sight and under the cover of darkness.”

The announcement comes alongside a new trailer which can be seen below:

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is set to launch October 28.

Infinity Ward also recently confirmed a series of beta tests. As revealed in June, the first beta weekend will be PlayStation exclusive.
