Activision played Major Gaming Magazines and Websites

CoD Modern Warfare 2

Recent European tour of Fourzerotwo was a success. And before that; we got some great MW2 insight from MAJOR Gaming Magazines and Gaming Websites.....



But now it looks like ALL have been used to write about things Activision wanted them to publish.

With only a few weeks before release and already thousands of PC gamers pre-ordered the MW2 game, it became clear NO ONE asked or kept asking about MAJOR changes for the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 !!!

We really hope that some of these writers and/or their bosses now go write about what is gonna happen to the loyal PC followers of the Glorious CoD titles.


Be a man... speak up. You have been used.

Extra by CC:

Some ask : " Why is this PC MW2 disaster not splashed across all the big sites!? "

Because all big websites want to keep their "good relation" with Activision.

Previews, Reviews, Interviews, Patch download contracts.... etc.

The above is worth a lot of "money".

New Modern Warfare Matchmaking Service Will Definitely Reshape PC Community

CoD Modern Warfare 2

By Owen Good

 

In a webcast this morning, Fourzerotwo revealed the existence of IWNet, a matchmaking service Infinity Ward will operate beginning with CoD Modern Warfare 2. But it ends dedicated servers, and fundamentally changes the culture of the game's PC community.

 

 

Fourzerotwo, the Infinity Ward community manager, said IWNet makes multiplayer more accessible to the PC community on Modern Warfare 2, replacing the need for dedicated servers that are hosted and managed by players. But the hardcore PC crowd to whom he was talking, on BASHandSlash.com's webcast, did not take the news in a completely positive light.

"The silence you hear is because we've got a community right now structured in such a way that it relied on having dedicated servers," one of BASHandSlash's moderators told 402.

"You're definitely reshaping the way the community has been set up," another said later.

"Definitely," Bowling acknowledged.

Here's the score: by building up its own matchmaking service riding shotgun with Steam, "you can get in and play with players your same rank," 402 said. However, "You're completely reliant on IWNet and there is no dedicated server or server list. You rely on IW Net for matchmaking and your games, but you still have your private matches."

The level of control over those matches allows players to set a wide array of parameters and rules for the game. But community features such as clans, and the high level of customization available in hosting a modded game or custom map on one's own dedicated server, face an uncertain future, if not their end outright.

"Custom content, after the fact, keeps the game alive for us a lot longer," one of 402's questioners said.

"This is the first time we've ever done something like this, obviously," 402 said, "and I know the team has huge plans for what IWNet develops into, and this is just the beginning. It's hard for me to speak personally towward IWNet, because that is a code heavy project."

Fourzerotwo reminded that this method of multiplayer delivery also allows Infinity Ward "a lot more control and structure for the PC version. From a development standpoint, it's very good on how we can access and update the PC community."

But before this is taken as the definitive end of modding and custom maps, 402 clearly said "I don't have those answers yet," when asked further about how IWNet would affect that aspect of PC Modern Warfare play.

The entire conversation is archived here, and 402 comes in at the 1:39:00 mark (that's one hour, 39 minutes). If this matters to you I definitely encourage listening to all of what he has to say before reacting.

But the news is not being taken well. The BASHandSlash guys referred to the vehemence in the chatlog running concurrent with the program, and terms such as "Black Saturday" and "a day of infamy" are being thrown around. "They've made Jesus cry," is another reaction, particularly from the competitive PC community whose future also is affected. "The server community is what's made us. It's what defined us," says Josh Pickler of planetmedalofhonor.com "IW.NET is getting the PC community to turn into consoles. You're trying to re-write our history."

Fourzerotwo was steadfast in telling that, for the whole of the community, IWNet will be a benefit.

"It's definitely going to be a change. It's going to be a very different setup than what we're previously used to in the Call of Duty franchise for the PC," In the long term it's going to help the community. It changes the way and how we're able to update and support the PC version."

It definitely bears watching, and keep in mind the story could change as Infinity Ward releases more information.

NOW MORE and MORE EUROPEAN GAME SHOPS CHANGE MW2 RELEASE DATE TO 11/24 !!

PC MODERN WARFARE 2 DELAYED IN EUROPE ? !!!                             CoD MW2 Avatar


In the last few days US Game shops changed the PC MW2 release dates back to 11/10....


But since TODAY some more BIG ON-LINE EUROPEAN Game shops changed their PC MW2 release dates into 11/24 ( November 24 ) !!!

It was only yesterday that we received a reply from a Activision US Employee; who told us it would be a definitely a WORLDWIDE release on 11/10. There was even a pointing to a 402 interview earlier this week.

Fourzerotwo told when asked : "Officially, no"  (Not delayed)

But with today's changing of the release dates we of MAPMODNEWS still believe in a 11/24 for (parts of) Europe.

When there is more release date news we report back here.

The 'new' 11/24 shops are Bol.com - Holland , gamersland.com , mediaoffer.nl , gamesshoppen.nl , wehkamp.nl ,

 

UPDATE : Fourzerotwo just twittert (16.00 CET) :

"No delay on PC for Modern Warfare 2. You'll also have Prestige Mode in PC as well as lots of Steam support. Hopefully min specs will be soon."

But as long as the BIG EUROPEAN SHOPS can't deliver the PC version of MW2 on 11/24;  we still regard PC MW2 as delayed.

 

 

Shops with still a 11-24-2009 release date for PC MW2 are found in the following countries :

UK, Norway, Sweden, Australia, South Africa, France, Finland, Holland, Czech Republic, Rusia and Belgium.

(non english use 24-11-2009)

IW dropped Modern Warfare 2 Campaign co-op as it “ruined the experience”

CoD Modern Warfare 2

By Patrick Garratt

Infinity Ward’s Fourzerotwo revealed to VG247 that Modern Warfare 2 was initially supposed to have full co-op in the its main Campaign, but was dropped as it “ruined the experience” the developer was aiming for.

MW2

The final game instead has Spec Ops mode – a dedicated, mission-based co-op section playable either online or locally in split-screen.

“We did it early on; that’s what Spec Ops started out as, as co-op through story,” said 402 when asked why Campaign co-op didn’t make the final game.

“But it really broke the cinematic experience, took the immersion out of it, out of the story and the pacing and everything we’d spent so long crafting. It just ruined the experience we were aiming for, so we took it out, kept the single-player for that one player intact and polished it.”

Spec Ops was born from the good parts of the ditched co-op mode, Fourzerotwo said.

“But then there were moments that were really fun with two players, so we took those moments and put them in Spec Ops,” he added.

“So you can play moments directly taken from the single-player, in Spec Ops, but it’s polished towards those two players so the experience is pure. You really get the best of both worlds: you get the moments that were fun, but the moments that were shitty we took out.”

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 NU speelbaar op FirstLook !

Call of Duty Nederlands

FIRSTLOOK, Amsterdam claims playing MW2 for the FIRST TIME by FANS.

And today FOURZEROTWO will be present  to answers ALL (?) your questions.

Hiermee heeft het Amsterdamse evenement een echt wereldprimeur in handen, want deze game was nog nergens anders te spelen.

Not in Tokyo, Not on E3, but on Firstlook 2009 in Amsterdam.

Firstlook Amsterdam

(dutch)  Zojuist is bekend geworden dat Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 komend weekend speelbaar zal zijn op het FirstLook event te Amsterdam. Dit zal de eerste keer zijn dat de game gespeeld kan worden door gamers, voorheen werd het spel altijd op video's gespeeld door personeel van Activision en Infinity Ward.

Gisteravond werd dit bekend op de Twitter pagina van Johan Belderok, organisator van FirstLook 2009. Hij schreef "The word is out: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 speelbaar op Firstlook. Bloody wereldprimeur."

LET OP !!!!

ZATERDAG GEEN KAARTEN AAN DE DEUR TE KOOP

Wil je zondag naar Firstlook? Dan kan dat op twee manieren. Of je koopt vandaag een kaartje voor Firstlook online of bij de Free Record Shop óf je koopt hem zondag aan de deur. Want omdat er zondag nauwelijks pers komt en er een beperkte gastenlijst is, hebben we die plekken omgezet in extra kaarten voor de gamers.

Let op!!! Met een kaartje uit de voorverkoop kun je vanaf elf uur naar binnen, terwijl de mensen die een kaartje aan de deur kopen, pas vanaf twaalf uur naar binnen kunnen. Het kaartje is wel een euro goedkoper aan de deur, 20 euro. Dus:

Voorverkoop: 11.00 uur naar binnen

Aan de deur: 12.00 uur naar binnen

En op = op!
