About Modern Warfare 2
This game is the next title in the Call of Duty franchise and the second entry in the Black Ops sub-franchise. In addition to the single-player campaign, multiplayer modes include Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Domination, Hardpoint, Search & Destroy, and Kill Confirmed. Multiplayer gameplay can either be online via dedicated servers or locally through split-screen mode.
The campaign occurs during the events depicted in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It focuses on a team of elite Special Operations soldiers led by Captain Soap Mac Tavelli, who must stop an enemy attack on Washington, D.C., and rescue hostages held at the Capitol Building.
This second installment received widespread critical approval, with critics praising the singleplayer, multiplayer, and amount of content, although they criticized the length and lack of innovations. Within 24 hours of its initial launch, the title had sold approximately four million units in North America and the U.K. alone.
Along with its launch of the original, a comic series called “Ghost” was published, featuring one of the main characters from the video games. The story follows a character named Ghost who is searching for his brother after he disappears during the events of the second installment.
Another controversy surrounded the inclusion of a terrorist training camp level where the player could play through various scenarios, such as shooting civilians and planting bombs, among others. A third entry, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, was released in 2015 and continues the story of the previous titles. A remastered version of the original Modern Warfare singleplayer mode, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, was released in 2018 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
