Modern Warfare 2 will feature a cooperative mode (woo hoo, about time) entitled Special Ops,which consists of independent missions similar in design to the "Mile High Club" epiloguemission from Call of Duty 4.These missions will take place in a variety of locations from thecampaign mode, but are related to story of the campaign itself. Special Ops supports cooperative play for up to two players,and can be played alone, in split-screen locally with another player, or online with another player. It includes such scenarios as a snowmobile race, a battle alongsideU.S. Navy SEALs, and fending off a wave of 50 enemies at once. (drools !!)Special Ops is divided into separate packs of missions with changeable difficulty levels. (Youwill not survive mode, you up for it?) The third group, "Charlie", includes the mission "Breachand Clear", where the objective is to just make it to the end of the level. At the beginning of amission, players select what weapon to use from several scattered around a room before theactual mission commences. Once a choice has been made, a nearby wall is breached and themission begins. At the end of each mission, a statistics screen displays how long the player took to complete the level and how many kills were scored. Successfully completing a mission earnsthe player stars, with missions completed on Veteran difficulty rewarding up to three stars. Thesestars can be used to unlock further missions in the mode. This sounds so cool. I simply cannotwait any longer !!!
Gameplay in the Modern Warfare online multiplayer mode
The online multi-player mode of Modern Warfare 2 retains the same awesome experience pointsand unlockable reward system of COD4, but also introduces several brand new features. Asidefrom new weapons and cool equipment, over 15 different kill streak rewards can be unlockedand selected by the gamer. Among these is the ability to receive a supply drops after four kills, a predator missile strike (this will be epic) after 5 kills, and to call in a strike by an AC-130gunship after achieving 11 enemy kills in a row. (I cannot wait to see how this reward will un- balance the game) It is also now possible to upgrade perks to a "pro version". Another newaddition to online multiplayer, is in game host migration, which means that if the match hostleaves the game, players will remain (instead of being reset to the game lobby like in Call of Duty 4) while a new host is selected and the game resumes. Overall I like the new features.Hopefully everyting will pan out in the gamers favor.
