COD: Modern Warfare 2
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (often simply called Modern Warfare 2) is a first-person shooter video game developed by Infinity Ward and released by Activision. It was released worldwide on November 10, 2009 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Aspyr developed a version for OS X, and was released May 20, 2014. The Xbox 360 version is backwards compatible for Xbox One in 2018. It's the sixth sequel to the Call of Duty series and a direct sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, continuing the same story. It was released in conjunction with two other Call of Duty games: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized for the Nintendo DS, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex, a port of Call of Duty 4 adapted by Treyarch for the Wii console.
The game's campaign follows Task Force 141, a special forces unit led by Captain Soap MacTavish, as it hunts Vladimir Makarov, leader of the Russian ultranationalist party, and the United States military defending the country from the Russian invasion. The main characters in the game are Sergeant Gary "Roach" Sanderson, of 141, and Private James Ramirez, of the Rangers Army, and Captain MacTavish will become playable later in the campaign. The game features an expansive multiplayer mode, with several new features and modes not seen in its predecessor.
