Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2‘s full release date is less than a week away, and some players are already enjoying (or have completed) the new game’s story campaign. However, for most Call of Duty players, the single-player campaign is merely a side dish to the main course: multiplayer in all of its forms.
MW2 will come with a score of multiplayer options and modes, including brand new modes like Raids and DMZ and the battle royale reboot Warzone 2.0. Now, dataminers could have found just how many maps players can expect to play on when the new game releases next week.
A report from Insider Gaming listed 16 multiplayer maps that will be included in MW2 at launch, including 11 six-vs-six maps and five large-scale maps to be used for the Invasion mode.
These maps will, of course, include several of the maps players fought their way through in the game’s open beta, including Farm 18 and Mercado, but there are also several maps that players haven’t gotten a look at that they’ll be able to look forward to as well. Judging by the names of the maps listed, these will continue to range in setting and terrain from urban and industrial settings, such as Crown Raceway and Zarqwa Hydroelectric, to desolate-sounding maps, such as Santa Seña Border Crossing.
Insider Gaming also notes that Crown Raceway is the new name of the Grand Prix map that was absent from the beta after fans saw content creators get to play around on the Singapore-inspired map. The news should be welcome to fans looking forward to playing the map after first seeing it teased but didn’t get their chance in the open beta.
All in all, this is about par for the course in terms of maps for a CoD title, but the news should still be welcome given the fact that so many new modes and Warzone 2.0 will also come out shortly, making this CoD one of the most content-heavy releases in recent memory for the series.
Oct 22, 2022 1:20 pm COD Zombie files found in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Could the Zombies mode be coming back from the dead?
Image via Activision Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the latest FPS title from the franchise that puts players in the role of a soldier with a mission. The series is known for its captivating single-player narratives and intense online multiplayer modes. Another staple of the Call of Duty series, Zombies, hasn’t shown up in a previous Modern Warfare game. This makes the inclusion of Zombie files in MW2 interesting.
According to Insider Gaming, a Twitter user found references to a Zombies mode in Modern Warfare 2. While the images have since been removed from the Twitter account, there were references to “Round Based Zombies,” and “Outbreak,” according to IG. This is notable to fans of past Call of Duty games who’ve experienced these round-based Zombie matches for themselves.
This isn’t confirmation that zombies will be coming to MW2 and could potentially just be code left over from development. Strangely, zombie code would be left over, though, especially when none of the past Modern Warfare games included Zombie modes. The developers had to know that data miners would eventually find this code, so it seems like it would be a priority to remove it.
According to IG, there have been rumors that Modern Warfare 2 might be the first of its series to introduce a Zombies mode, but source Tom Henderson states that he hasn’t heard anything about it in a while.
Players love the Zombies mode that each new Call of Duty seems to try to evolve on, and it would likely be a welcome addition to Modern Warfare 2.
