Warzone 2 could be tied to Modern Warfare 2 launcher if this bug is anything.
The Modern Warfare 2 open beta offered players the opportunity to recommend final adjustments. Infinity Ward took the feedback to heart and announced changes for the final game.
According to the official Call of Duty Twitter account, Modern Warfare 2 was the most played beta in the history of the series. Despite an amazing player base, the beta received mixed reviews from community members.
We’ve listed five features Infinity Ward had to change ahead of the October 28 release of MW2, and indeed the developers have announced changes to three of our biggest concerns. Let’s take a look at what’s different from the beta experience.
Finally, Modern Warfare 2 will be released worldwide on October 28th.
Infinity Ward has published a blog detailing the development team’s changes since the beta.
The main changes concern enemy visibility, audio, UI, movement and matchmaking.
First, name tags were controversially removed from enemies, making it difficult to distinguish between friend and foe. Enemies now have diamond icons above their heads, and adjustments to lighting and contrast should make them easier to see.
Reduced the overall range of footstep sounds, making it easier for players to maneuver around corners without being penalized. The activation sound effect for the Dead Silence field upgrade has also been drastically reduced.
CDL-Pro-Shotzzy figured out how to cancel slides during beta. Infinity Ward stated, “We’ve addressed some exploits on movement,” but they didn’t specifically mention slide breakage.
CoD Vanguard players have expressed frustration with lobbies being broken up by game. The same feature was included in Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare 2019. Classic CoD titles would keep players in the same lobby until they left.
Infinity Ward said, “We’ve made some changes aimed at reducing the resolution of the lobby between games.”
We will be providing updates on all other changes in MW2 by release day.
