Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 drops an action-packed reveal trailer

After what feels like months of waiting, we’ve finally been gifted a “world reveal” gameplay trailer for Call of Duty’s latest annual offering, the highlight anticipated Modern Warfare 2. The almost 2-minute trailer shows off a bunch of single-player gameplay as we once again join Captain Price and Task Force 141 on a daring, high-stakes mission.

With familiar faces like Sergeant Kyle “Gaz” Garrick and Lieutenant Simon “Ghost” Riley returning, it’s still unknown if the reboot will follow in the footsteps of the original. Although given 2019’s Modern Warfare decided to pave new ground in terms of story, Modern Warfare 2 will more than likely do the same, basically travelling on an alternate timeline of sorts. After all, Soap is indeed along for the ride.

Gameplay is most definitely action-packed to say the least, full of set-pieces, chases and intense standoffs. In typical Call of Duty fashion, the trailer opens with your protagonist hanging from an overhead helicopter as you engage in a moving firefight on a highway; upside down. Classic. We then travel to a bunch of locations along with Task Force 141, with the final tagline stating that “The Ultimate Weapon Is Team.” We can only hope that the franchise decides to incorporate tactical team based commands and strategies at some point in the franchise. But for now, we’ll stick with the unbridled chaos. Check out the trailer for yourself down below:

As far as we know, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will launch on all major platforms on the 28th of October, 2022.
