E3 2009: Modern Warfare 2 Details and Timed-Exclusive Map Packs
Written Monday, June 01, 2009 By Jason Debelyak
The audience is treated to the lengthy Modern Warfare 2 trailer and out come the folks that will be demoing the game. The demo opens up in a rock climbing area where you have to use your picks to scale the mountain side. Then, while making a jump, the player barely survives a lunge by using the picks in the side of the mountain befoer falling to his untimely demise.
The demo then turns to the combat side of things, through a whiteout of snow where your vision is hindered to just a few feet. And the demo then skips to a faster-paced sequence to show off more of the game's gameplay, including the snowmobile sequence that has been on everybody's minds. The combat sequences on the snowmobile seem to be extremely on-point and accurate.
Also announced is that Infinity Ward will release two timed-exclusive map packs for Xbox Live!
