Infinity Ward has delivered the news that it is not planning on putting together a Modern Warfare 2
demo and that the game will not even get a beta stage, closed or opened, before it is released on November 10 on the Xbox 360 from Microsoft, the PlayStation 3 from Sony and the PC through Games for Windows Live. The Twitter feed of the company said that the reason for the lack of a demo was the fact that “the entire team is focused on polish all the way up to ship of the full game.”
The decision made by Infinity Ward is a bit unexpected, considering that the first Modern Warfare, released way back in 2007, had a demo which proved to be extremely popular with gamers and no doubt convinced a lot of them to pick up the full version of the game.
A demo is also a very good way to attract gamers not familiar with the series and with the way it presents combat and warfare. Basically, Infinity Ward is pretty much narrowing the player base to which it is marketing Modern Warfare 2 to those who have a direct or an indirect experience of the first game in the series.Modern Warfare 2
is probably the biggest release of the year. It will be telling a similar story to its predecessor, as a multinational anti-terror force takes on Russian ultra nationalists in a series of missions taking place in a wide array of locations all over the world while providing adrenalin-pumping shooter experiences.
Infinity Ward has said that the single player campaign of the game will offer about 10 hours of gameplay and that the multiplayer has been redesigned, allowing for more tactical options and more flexibility when it comes to load outs. The game is set to receive two DLC packs, initially
, first on the Xbox 360; more might be delivered depending on the way players react to them.
