game news Beta Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2: History, modes, news and all the info about Early Access multiplayer!
After revealing his future in detail – during Call of Duty Next a few days ago – it’s time to take action! From this weekend to the end of September: PC, PlayStation, and Xbox players will be able to discover a taste of Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer. Of course, we’ve played it, and we’ve got a lot to tell you. Come on, let’s evaluate the matter.
We start with the most obvious. From September 18-20, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta will be available for the first time for All PlayStation playersAfter an Early Access Weekend only for PS4 and PS5 fans who pre-order the game! Then, from September 22nd to 23rd, the beta will be extended on Xbox and PC for those who have purchased FPS in advance (note that it is still available on Sony console during this time). Then, from September 24 to 26, as part of the final stage, everybody He will be able to access it, whether on PC, Xbox or PlayStation. You will understand: PS4 users | The PS5 has a small advance on this one. To get everything you have to go to your platform store (Steam | Battle.Net on PC).
What game modes are available in the beta version?
First, note that the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta is updated daily, and other modes may arrive later! As it stands, it offers early access only 6 vs 6 matches Spread over three maps (Farm 18, Mercado Las Almas and Hotel Breenbergh). In the program, we have Team Deathmatch, Domination, Prisoner Liberation (Rainbox Six Siege-style mode with two hostages to rescue), Search and Destroy (the sequence to the arm and defuse the bomb), KO (keep the longest bag full of tickets) and a compendium of gameplay styles third person, namely Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Hardpoint (Keep dominating an area for as long as possible). It’s a safe bet that game modes on larger maps are coming later.
What new features can we discover in the beta version?
Good question. On the sidelines of the third-person view and the new modes we mentioned (Prisoner Release | KO), the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta allows you to get many things, starting with the new gameplay. Yes, two major movements are making their debut: Possibility cling to the edge at a good height before climbing on the latter (it is even possible to draw a pistol in this position to attack with a well-protected part of the body) and the fact of being able to jump forward To land on your stomach (helpful to reach with a bang | cover up very quickly).
And that’s not all! Sure: Modern Warfare 2 brings new weapons and tactical gear to the negotiating table | Unprecedented lethality (electrical charge, penetrating charge, DDoS – a discharge affecting electronic devices – an inflatable lure). However, what might interest fans the most is definitely Gunsmith 2.0, a platform for managing weapon customization in this latest installment. Here, it’s always about unlocking accessories as you go (barrel, stock, scope) but more on a case-by-case basis! Basically, when you get a new product, it will be available for all fireworks of the same category. In addition, you can export your favorite accessories to a second weapon of the same type.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 – We test new gameplay (beta, 1080p)
But before you can customize your weapons, you’ll have to play some games! In Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta, this feature is unlocked when fourth grade (There are thirty in total). The further you progress, the more items you will get for your personal arsenal, such as new fireworks, lethal and tactical equipment, and rewards after a certain series of eliminations. To advance as quickly as possible, bet on games with Auto Repost, such as Team Deathmatch or Domination. This is the most urgent way to carry out kills and gain experience. At the default category level, choose Specter – Go-getter. His weapon, the FSS Hurricane, provides a large magazine and good stability.
What do you think of the Modern Warfare 2 beta?
Finally, here are our impressions of this early access! En l’état, le multijoueur de Modern Warfare 2 nous paraît tout à fait solide – dans la droite lignée de ce que sait faire le studio Infinity Ward – avec une action intense, fluide, de jolies sensations de shoot mais force est de constater que We were a little disappointed. Basically, 6v6 maps don’t really take advantage of the new gameplay features (pending and jumping diving). On several occasions, when we thought we could pull ourselves over an edge by force of the gun and the elevation was consistent with the reach of the trigger, we had to step back. It’s pretty frustrating, but the bigger maps and Warzone 2.0 will probably work better at this point.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 – Action on the Horizon TPS (Beta, 1080p)
Otherwise, for the rest, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is finger and eye responsive! Even if some situation lacks the stakes and often ends in a great massacre (prisoner liberation, search and destruction, KO) we still endure and always fun To enter into battle, not forgetting to use the new available offensive tools and tactics. Even the third person pose feels especially natural and smooth – with the camera switching to the first person when aiming. For this specific mode, note that it is not possible to mix both FPS and TPS players. In short, we can’t wait to see more.
