Campaign and Special Ops
Task Force 141 faces its greatest threat yet — a newly aligned menace with deep, yet unknown, connections.
Familiar heroes return and new allies are formed in a globe-trotting operation, including missions in Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
This Campaign is set to be an incredible experience on numerous levels: offshore sieges with underwater combat, all-out explosive assaults from 30,000 feet above enemy strongholds, and high-stakes, low-profile stealth missions in both plain sight and under the cover of darkness.
Deploying alongside you are iconic squadmates: Team leader Captain John Price; seasoned sergeant Kyle “Gaz” Garrick; the lone wolf himself, fan-favorite Simon “Ghost” Riley; fearless Sergeant John “Soap” MacTavish; as well as the newest team member, Colonel Alejandro Vargas, an incorruptible Tier 1 Operator and member of the Mexican Special Forces.
After the Campaign, players can join with up with their duo for evolved Special Ops. This tactical co-op mode advances your team-building skills, and also sets the scene for the near-endless hours of gameplay available in the world-class Multiplayer.
Multiplayer: Next-Generation Innovations
Those who preorder and drop into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Multiplayer at launch will be among the first to try out and level up the multiple base weapons, explore a wide range of maps and modes, meet an international cast of Operators, and more.

Modern Warfare II — Technically Speaking
Starting with Modern Warfare II, the new title features the new, next-generation engine that first debuted with Modern Warfare (2019).
Modern Warfare II will be the most advanced Call of Duty in history, with a truly immersive experience with stunningly realistic sound, lighting, and graphics.
Modern Warfare II features a physically based material system allowing for state-of-the-art photogrammetry, a new hybrid tile-based streaming system, a new PBR decal rendering system, world volumetric lighting, 4K HDR, as well as a new GPU geometry pipeline. All of this is in service of a massive cinematic Campaign.
The game also features a new advanced AI system. Enemies and friendlies alike across Campaign and Special Ops act tactically using combat and cover maneuvering techniques that would be second nature to a Tier 1 Operator.
