Modern Warfare 2 returns with surprise remaster

Not a sequel to the recent soft-reboot of the Modern Warfare series, this is the original Call of Duty classic sequel. But it’s just a bit better looking now.

Remastering a classic

Modern Warfare 2 campaign was incredible. We all remember the lasting impression the story left upon us. This campaign was very special and we thank Infinity Ward for creating such an amazing experience,” said Thomas Wilson, co-studio head, Beenox. “Restoring and remastering this campaign for a new generation of players was a labor of love for our team. We wanted to make sure that the feelings and power of the story was accurately represented with full high-definition visuals and the latest audio fidelity.”

Well this is a surprise. Sort of (news leaked last night). Everything returns for this remaster of MW2, but it all looks a heck of a lot better this time around.

Already a great looking FPS, Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered includes “up to 4K resolution and HDR support on console; and uncapped framerate as well as ultrawide monitor support on PC”. And as you can see, it’s looking awesome.

When you buy in, which is something that you can do today on PS4, you get a nice little freebie too. Activision is tossing in the “Underwater Demo Team Classic Ghost Bundle” for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

The pack includes:

  • UDT Ghost Operator skin inspired by the ‘The Only Easy Day…Was Yesterday’ campaign level
  • Ghost Operator skin
  • two weapon blueprints
  • a weapon charm
  • new finishing move
  • voice quip
  • animated calling card
  • emblem
  • two Battle Pass tier skips all for immediate access in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the recently released Call of Duty: Warzone*.

*Call of Duty: Modern Warfare/Call of Duty: Warzone required, sold/downloaded separately.

Out now on PS4, Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is ready for pre-order on PC and Xbox One.
