Publisher Activision and developer Infinity Ward have released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered for PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store. Xbox One and PC (Battle.net) versions will follow on April 30. Pre-orders for those versions are now available.

Here is an overview of the game, via Activision:
The game includes the full campaign with stunning high-definition visuals—up to 4K resolution and HDR support on console; and uncapped frame rate as well as ultrawide monitor support on PC.

Published by Activision, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered features improved texture resolution and detail, revamped animation, remastered audio, and much more.

In this famed experience, originally developed by Infinity Ward and now re-mastered by Beenox, players enlist as members of Task Force 141 and Tier 1 Operatives in a breathtaking series of missions to save the world from destruction. “Cliffhanger,” “Takedown,” “No Russian,” and more all return in this intense story experience.


Purchasing or pre-ordering Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered includes the “Underwater Demo Team Classic Ghost Bundle” for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which includes the UDT Ghost Operator skin inspired by the “The Only Easy Day… Was Yesterday” campaign level, two weapon blueprints, a weapon charm, new finishing move, voice quip, animated calling card, emblem, and two Battle Pass tier skips all for immediate access in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone.

It seems that in the page description of download, the game requires Call of duty Modern Warfare or Call of Duty Warzone to play.

Does anyone notice that?

EDIT: misreading. It was for the extra content, didn't notice "*".

What a dick move making this a timed exlusive now that everyone is stuck home. Was looking forward to playing this tonight on my PC guess I'll buy it when its on sale. Don't wanna support them by paying its full price for this.

Was really hoping this would release on PC today as well. Major bummer. I wonder if the Ghost bundle will be in the MW store today, at the least?
Edit: Looks like you get it with pre-purchase.

Bit poor of them with the timed exclusive with what’s going on in the world at the moment. Lots of people stuck at home at the moment. Yeah I will get it on my PS4 tonight but bit shitty on everybody else

Weird fucking shadow drop of one of the best selling shooters of all time.

I suspect this remaster has issues. Why not market it more, or give it to media to talk about and help increase sales? Bizarre move 🤔

maybe they’re hoping people will see it and buy it not realizing it’s just the campaign.

I'm guessing maybe its because of russian scene(which is in the game)? Didn't people already used this scene to blame video-games for various real life situations?
Also I think it prevents "certain sites" to cancel culture the product.

Really early, I know, but any impressions yet?

Close to pulling the trigger but if performance sucks then I wont...

The game doesn't appear to have performance problems looking at few reviews, shadow drop seems to be because of the lack of multiplayer and not to detract attention from the main game + warzone. The maps will be added on the most recent game instead.

Why do Sony moneyhat timed excusivity like this and FFVII remake when they have all these magical first-party devs?
Makes the PlayStation more attractive to potential buyers. Nothing wrong with it but when Xbox do these things people go mad

Sony and activision literally have blood on their hands. People are dying from Chorana chan and these bastards signed a deal like this months before any of this happened to keep content AWAY from people at a time like this????! GAMERS RISE UP!

Sony/Activision just shot themselves in the foot.
I don't know how much the rest of you know about Call of Duty culture (I'm an expert), but honor and shame are huge parts of it. It's not like it is in America where you can become successful by being an asshole. If you screw someone over in Call of Duty, you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get rid of that shame is repentance.
What this means is the Call of duty public, after hearing about this, is not going to want to purchase Modern Warfare 2 remastered for PS4, nor will they purchase any of Activison's games. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but Activison/SONY has alienated an entire market with this move.

Activision/SONY, publicly apologize and cancel Modern Warfare 2 remastered for PS4 or you can kiss your business goodbye.

I wasn't even going to buy this today but this timed exclusive crap like this is scummy.

No announcement, no warning just boom, it's available now, just not on that platform you would have wanted it on.

Spend money funding proper exclusives that wouldn't be made without you doing so or buying studios, or on your own 1st party devs. Not pointless shit like this.

I’m salty as hell I have to wait until April 30th to play it, but I fully understand the reason why.

At least I can get the ghost skin in MW2019 now.

Why on the weakest hardware first? I'm like...should I enjoy this on the comfy couch with Dolby Atmos on X1X or everything dialled up on my 2080ti rig. Guess I have like 4 weeks to think about it :messenger_expressionless:

Maybe. Is it confirmed “No-Russian” is even still in the game? 🤔

Sony will always win the console war because of deals like this. Exclusive content still works

They literally said this was signed before terms changed that content needs to drop on all platforms at the same time, so expect more "all platforms" releases in the future.
Everything is rather going in the "simultaneous" release direction than in the "more timed exclusives" direction.

On Topic:
Honestly, I would've had a worse time waiting for this to release on PC if they would have used the "Till I collapse" trailer from back then.
Damn that shit still hypes me up every time I see it.

Yep, Phil lost his balls when he said he wouldnt do these deals. Mean while he should realise as a husiness man these deals are attractive to the consumer and = more profits

Sony moneyhats at full swing first 3 months of Control DLC and now this. Why are they scared when people ejaculate/squirt when there is a "PS4 exlusive" mentioned.

Imagine actually paying money to stop millions of gamers from playing a game, a remastered 360/ps3 game at that.

That’s pretty dumb that it’s a 30 day timed exclusive. Was looking forward to playing this on my X this weekend.
