Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered Is Out on PS4, With Other Platforms to Follow

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered Is Out on PS4, With Other Platforms to Follow

It's real, and it's available right now for some.

After reports of its existence and a leak of the full campaign on YouTube this morning, Activision is announcing that a remaster of the single-player campaign from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, developed by Beenox, is out today on PlayStation 4.

Much like the remaster of the original Modern Warfare, joined to the release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare 2's remaster will only include the campaign. Fans of the fantastically bonkers multiplayer and Spec Ops modes won't be able to jump on and play those modes, but there is a silver lining.

In an Activision blog entry, the Call of Duty team confirms that it's looking to add more influence from Modern Warfare 2 into 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Several iconic maps like Rust, Shipment, and Crash have already been added, as well as Warzone locales reminiscent of Gulag and Boneyard.

"Rather than release a separate multiplayer experience as a standalone pack, Activision and Infinity Ward are looking to bring more classic map experiences to new life within the Modern Warfare universe as it continues to grow and build over time," the blog says.

Although PlayStation 4 players can pick up the Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Campaign right now, other platforms like PC and Xbox One can only pre-purchase for an April 30 release date, according to the remaster's site. Activision's press release confirms that the PC version will support uncapped frame rate and ultrawide monitors on computers. The console version of the campaign will boast up to 4K resolution and HDR support.
