Modern Warfare 2 Remastered has been ready for past two years; launches today
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has released its remastered campaign exclusively to PlayStation 4 owners today, however it seems the update has been ready for the past two years.
The game is now available on the PlayStation network (with pre-orders available for other platforms to land on May 1).
The remastered version includes the full campaign, updated with better visuals that supports up to 4K resolution and HDR televisions. It also features improved textures, animations and audio.
Speaking about the release, Thomas Wilson – the studio head of Beenox (who re-mastered the game) said the “Modern Warfare 2 campaign was incredible.”
"We all remember the lasting impression the story left upon us. This campaign was very special and we thank Infinity Ward for creating such an amazing experience.
"Restoring and remastering this campaign for a new generation of players was a labor of love for our team. We wanted to make sure that the feelings and power of the story was accurately represented with full high-definition visuals and the latest audio fidelity."
The second in the Modern Warfare series, the game caused some controversy when it launched over a mission that saw the player take the role of a Russian terrorist, attacking civilians in an airport.
The mission remains here in the remastered version.
