A screenshot from Infinity Ward's upcoming shooter.
More sreenshots added.
It might be only one screen shot, but that's a really kicka$$ screen!
yip. MW2 will look better than what the N4G community is making out. You can't possibly expect it to look as good as KZ2 and Uncharted2 as those games are made to optimise specific hardware and that will always produce the best results.
Yes this is not gonna look as good as Uncharted 2 (because the later is exclusive) but it will definitely kick some major asss in the gameplay department.
This screen was in game informer already. I hate sites who use others screens for news. At least it didn't say "new"
You speak truth, I may have to start tracking you. I am looking forward to this game, I just hope they really step it up and bring something new to the table. Knowing IW's track record, they have never let us down.
that they show actual gameplay footage during the NBA Playoffs during half time? Edit: It is tonight. They are showing a quick glimpse of actual gameplay. Found this when I googled ""World Premiere" of Modern Warfare 2 on May 24th by airing a 17 second teaser which gives us our first look at actual gameplay." 17 seconds just isn't long enough but it will have to do.
I'd say it's limited by a console being it's high end so you can't expect it to look any better than COD4.
While the textures on the items in this game may not be thoroughly intricate, just the amount of things they put in each of these screens--hence, the locations in the game--show me that the atmosphere they create makes up for the lack of completely high-res textures. For me, a lot of these places look realistic because they decided to put a lot of extras in the environment instead of making things look kind of "brand new" like these places have barely ever been touched. On the 2 minute trailer, the character models didn't look the prettiest but they at least conveyed expressions and didn't look retarded haha
would i be wrong to say that im not that impressed by the screenshot? I know its still going to be a great game, and will most likely surpass killzone's single player and online, but it's definitely no graphical marvel imo.
It's going to be an awesome game whether it's the best looking on the market or not. It will easily dominate everything else in online play as soon as it releases, just like COD4 did. To be honest, I almost wish that they would completely scrap the story, and put all of that effort into the online component. Just call it COD online and give us tons of incredible maps and game options, along with higher levels of customization. Let's face it, most COD fans play the story once or twice, then turn around and put hundreds of hours into online. Disagree? Settle it in the ring at, http://flash-74.mybrute.com
Why bring Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 here? I think Xbox 360 owners including me understand that PS3 games has good graphics why cant PS3 owners just let go of the who has the best graphics thingy. This includes Xbox 360 owners bragging about sharper textures or whatever. Peace
I for one did not like the first much but this one looks epic
How about the 4th? :P
that "the first Modern Warfare" wasn't liked, because Activision split it into it's own series now. So there was Modern Warfare 1 (which we all know is also COD4)....at least that's how I took it. Call of Duty 6 is really going to be what Treyarch is working on next, although I'm sure it may be a while before "Modern Warfare 2" shakes the "CoD 6" title, I don't know how long it'll take the new game series nomenclature to take hold in the industry and with the consumers...
on my above comment, I've loved all the CoD games (haven't played 3, but played all the others so far), I was trying to state what I thought Diablokiller was saying about him "not liking the first one", the first one being Modern Warfare 1...I actually liked it myself.
How did this get approved? isn't this just a screen grab from the GI mag?
Who cares? It's sunday, and E3 is a week away, so until then just relax and enjoy. This shot looks very impressive by the way.
That's what I was thinking, since I think this has been posted millions of times. But since we ALL love Call of Duty IW games, one screenshot never gets old.
Details from the cum image: *Destructible environments *Enemies or you/team can now use shields. *4 players with shields, could this mean Co-oP 4 players?
In the GI mag, they were only talking about 2-player co-op. The others are probably AI like the epilogue mission in Call of Duty 4.
semi destructible yes, those aren't players they are A.I. with shields they never said either way if you could use them. 2 player, 4 player co-op doesn't exist in this game in the campaign. Co-op is only on special forces, which is what this screen shot is taken from. Special situations like mile high club that you can tackle with a friend.
ive seen this in a magazine scan with a few other screens
or you know it will fall into FPS mediocrity. /s This is now called "The Killzone2 Effect", where any FPS created since FEB28th will now be judged by the same harshness as KZ2 was judged. What does MW2 bring new to the table? How many online players does MW2 accommodate? (better be more than 16-18 this time, because 256 IS something new on console FPS's) I'm not hating on Duty either, I just want FPS's to go through the same scrutiny that KZ2 had to go through simply because it was a PS3 exclusive.
KZ2 got a lot of love and great reviews which it deserved so if by "scrutiny" you mean reviewers, media, or fans actually having a critical opinion about some areas that were dissapointing then yeah KZ2 like ALL games was "OMG NOT PERFECT". Get over it. I mean really why would a game like MW realisticly try to compete with MAG with anything close to 256 players? IW has made argueably the best shooter this gen with a proven online and its not about the player count so if anything its MAG who hopefully has a "gimmick" that works. @mrv321 vvvvv "a poor online a below average singleplayer and that's about it" Sounds like we played 2 different games.
don't you think it's funny how a site like Eurogamer will review a game like inFamous and give a 7 and at the same time review a game like Bionic Commando and give it the same score? http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... hell they gave KZ2 MAPPACKS a 5/10?! MapPacks?! http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... BTW i loved COD4, it was the best FPS out there...till Killzone2 came out....IMO.
First of all your first link is Eurogamer Portugal the second is the original Eurogamer, although the Portugal branch falls under Eurogamer they are different sites that could potentially give different scores. Then anybody could single out reviews to accuse a site of bias, like this Eurogamer Portugal gave Resistance2 a perfect 100 which is well above its 87 meta average and yet they gave Gears2 a 90 which is below its meta average of 93, "OMG they are so damm bias" http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... You see what I did there? I mean truth is as much as I thought and many reviewers scores suggest that Gears2 is a much better game than R2 Eurogamer Portugal simply didn't see it that way, which is fine, why because games are reviewed by HUMANS, not ROBOTS that can detect code optimization, measure pixels and framerate drops, NO what it all boils down to is that they simply rate a game based on how much they liked it. I guess some sites have started reviewing maps so this is not something new just for KZ2. BTW, meta-scores are flawed in the sense of the grading scale is different depending on the sites and they don't always use the same exact sites, but its really not a big deal to be concerned with.
"maybe" these sites aren't biased, but my point still stands. FPS's MUST now be graded on a strict curve, after all the "lack of innovation" bull i heard about Killzone2.
but i gotta ask.....um....what did KZ2 bring new to the table? -iron sights view? see COD1 -sprint? try pretty much every pc shooter out there for the past 10-15 years, cod4 made it more popular for console FPS, see how every fps is trying to use it now? -class based online play? see team fortress. snipers with the ability to disguise themselves as the opponents. engineers with the ability to lay down turrets? straight up rip-off -ranking system....please what military game online doesnt have this. -helghast look like the characters from jin-roh ....what new thing did this game bring again??? o wait it looks pretty so it must be the greatest game ever......right? so KZ2 used sprinting, iron sights and something similar to perks but they ripped off team fortress instead. i call this the COD4 effect +10 for lack of originality oh im not hating on KZ2, i just wanna know what new thing KZ2 brought to the table so ill know why u made this post
the hit detection system is unmatched.
I'm sorry, what did COD 4 REALLY! bring to the table, a poor online a below average singleplayer and that's about it, while games since and before then has done much more. So I ask how many of you will judge COD 6 on what it actually is or instread will you just say Buu.... buu The online can be good when it works. I know that screen does look pretty nice, but it's still average. Co-op, well maybe 4 but Resistance 2 did 8 heck Resistance 1 did 4 offline, Competitive we'll have to see but I'm far more optimistic about Bad company 2 because I've actually seen in-game footage instead of some lose things designed to create hype and nothing else. I will judge this when it comes out but we can't ignore this time errors, like error 33, host ended game, connection failed. Look dedicated servers aren't that hard and we all know they'll make enough money. Nor is making a better party system, or improving the variation a bit more. I don't want a better graphics version of COD 4 with a tacked on singleplayer with multiple generic characters. I want an online that works. I want a decent singleplayer with less of the 'those people =bad so kill.' and I want you to support your games a bit better. No dualshock for PS3 COD 4, how hard can that be. No Trophies for COD 4 considering how popular it was I'd expect them to try considering the fact they had nothing to do since COD 4 and it's LAME maps. You honestly think they spent every day working on COD6? Oh and don't try changing the name either to mordernwarfare 2, COD is a yearly product like sports games which year on year appear to be little more than a players update and a graphics tweak.
What did COD4 bring to the table that was new? Perks, A Proper upgrade system, proper drop in multiplayer, A way to 'start over' in multiplayer and be rewarded for it.
I'm fairly sure there's been a 'proper' upgrade system before COD 4... most MMORPG's support and upgrade system. As for perks well I'd like to direct you to the world of Fallout which I am sure of it had a perk and upgrade system. Drop in Multiplayer, well that's questionable seeing as you get host ended game often. Resistance offers a 'drop in' multiplayer, you'd select a game and hop in quickly, you could choose to leave but you won't get lag or host ended game so you stay in a game with the maps and weapons of your choice so you get a perfect game. I'm not too sure on the starting over thing but I'm sure someone will point out a game that uses a start over feature. What do you mean revawrded for it? You loose everything, heck most people would disagree but I dislike prestidge and only do it once and a while AFTER forgetting how much I hate it.
Dude why are you talking about cod6, we haven't even got to cod 5 yet. Oh wait you must think cod [email protected] is cod 5. Why do so many people think this?
great, a screenshot from 2 weeks ago
the facts still remains that ps3 is the most powerful console on the market today and its first party exclusives are second to none when it comes to beautiful graphics. what will happen next year around this time when we are looking at newer ps3 exclusives like screenshots of killzone 3, motorstorm 3, resistance 3, and other games only for the ps3? will people of other consoles still hold on to faith that their exclusives and multiplatform games will look better or will they finally accept the truth which is that ps3 is the most powerful consoles and if optimized a lot for the hardware , ps3 exclusives are second to none. how will developers feel next year when the ps3 exclusives go up another level when it comes to graphics and game technology, will third party devs feel good about their multiplatform games and will they continue to make ps3 and xbox 360s multifplatform games equal to the xbox 360s version or will they optimize the ps3 version. a lot of people will begin to realize that multiplatform games are average games with average technology and will want to get a ps3 and get its superior games or a lot of people will want to skip out on getting ps3 multiplatform games and just buy ps3 exclusives. ps. the talon stands for talented
the year after a new xbox will arrive and its rinse and repeat, to be honest this gen is already over. in a few months the 360 will go into its 5th year . to ms they won this gen against ps3 and now they will dominate with the new xbox(in thier mind) not mine
good screen shot, must be from the 360 version.
odd........i thought it was a very "average" looking screenshot and that's why i thought it was a 360 screenshot. it certainly doesn't have the "wow" factor of KZ2, UC2, or GOW3.
It doesn't use the UE3 so it can't be, heck there's no texture pop in there's no poor character models they must be using something different from the shovelwere engine which let's be fair is hardly the most advanced one, it's just there's for middle weight dev's do get sticka generic first person shooter gameplay/story on add a online using gamespy or a broken online, then release to get mediocore review.
when did this turn from a COD6 discussion to a PS3 is the best and all other consoles suck it discussion.. yes i'm talking to you dylantalon and mrv32. you make me sick.. seriously its fanboy or fangirls like you that make this site seem so childish.. I play COD4 still and only did perstige once.. its fun to play and i have a great time.. i play with my buddies on my friend's list and while chatting it makes the game so much better.. graphics are pretty awsome for multiplat and i can't see any lag when i play.. sure the host leaves and its a bit annoying but it works.. and with 18 it does not seem like a lot but 9 vs 9 on those maps is pretty busy.. cause they are designed for the size.. IW did an awsome job and i will be picking this one up.. but when all you can do is complain and compare everything to the PS3, KZ2.. (both are great) but they are not the same thing.. so quit being little babies and don't play the game if you don't like it.. and both of you seemed to buy it, so SELL IT AND GET KZ2 if you aren't happy..
I completely agree with your post. I wish more people thought like you. COD4MW is one of the best FPS available this generation and I wish we could just talk about the sequel instead of devolving into a bunch of fanboy crap. Killzone 2 looks and plays great, but it isn't on a whole different level like people make it out to be. All the top shooters are close enough in graphics that it really doesn't matter that much. What it really comes down to is which games do you enjoy most.
I agree, but I was actually talking about COD 6, and my other comment was quite sarcastic as a reply to abi980 which can at best be called a fanboy and at worst the reson gaming has become so devided. I do not wish to de-rail this any further so I'd like to talk about the what if. What if COD 6 is just a slightly improved COD 4, I'd be unhappy to see it get the 10/10's that no doubt it will becayse simply put I think COD 4 didn't push it, and I hope to god that COD 6 and IW will just say, hey look guys here' deciated servers, an actual clan system and some improved features. We really want to try, but they may just be laid back because they know there next game WILL sell 10 million copies compined regardless. I would hate to see this game on the DS, it's just not right. The DS is a great platform but not one designed for FPS's nor is the PSP they are designed for and get this PORTABLE gaming, quick levels fun to play not cheap ports.
Really? It's a magazine screen!! My god
It's a nice screen, but I already saw it in my current issue of Game Informer. Not newsworthy.
IW always deliver. They are the best FPS developer anyways. Graphics is not as good as KZ2 but that is expected.
Killzone 2 doesn't even come close to crysis even on Medium settings and Believe me my comp is powerful enough to play it at Max settings with AA and Antistropic filtering all the way up and the res at 1600X1200 at at least 50 FPS and still while it's the best looking game on the market it's nothing mind blowing as for killzone 2 videos and screenshots are misleading it has bland textures and poor bump mapping as for Uncharted 2 that game isn't even out yet and you Sony fanboys already say it looks better this even though you only saw a screenshot and no video gameplay footage I have no doubt in my mind that this game will smoke Uncharted 2 considering COD4 did that to the first Uncharted 1 already
another site using a scan of a magazine or from a video,yet i keep clicking on to see if it is a real honest to goodness screen direct from devs,only to see something i've already saw a thousand times :-(
Wow one screenshot and its not even new! Its from the Game Informer stuff if I'm right. STOP REHASHING STUFF EVERYBODY HAS SEEN ALREADY! Damn see the story running hot on just one screen. COD6 must be hot hot hotter then any game for 2009!
Ithink you need to open your eyes and think before you type, killzone 2 destroys any console game to date , if you had the game you would know.And there is gameplay of uncharted 2, uncharted 2 looks amazing.
at ur last sentence.. cod4 smoked uncharted??? gameplay possibly.. but if u say graphics.. jsut stop playing games right now.. that or your blind as a bat
Well between MW2 and halo ODST coming out in the fall. I can see Sony having a hard time selling uncharted. They will have to push the release date back.
I dont really see how halo will affect the sales of Uncharted.
It looks good. Well You can't possibly expect it to look as good as Gears of War.
I know the COD franchise has never been a ground breaker in the graphics department, but I just hope they get rid of those god awful backgrounds and textures they used in COD4. COD4 was a step back for the COD franchise in terms of graphics. Makes you kinda wish they kept the franchise PC exclusive.
This game will will GOTY over KZ2 in many areas Graphics KZ2 might get the nod (but not in all areas) Gameplay MW2 Story MW2 Sound MW2 Online MW2 MW2 will completely own KZ2 in sales even on the PS3 as well. And gee how long did it take them do make KZ2???? Won't this be the 3rd kick a$$ game form Infinity in the same amount of time??? I would rather play 3 awesome games in the spam of 1 game that really everall isnt as good.
So when did graphics became soooo important these days... All you Sony Knuckleheads only talk about KZ2 graphics, Unchated 2 graphics, GT5 graphics, GOW graphics...an so on and so forth. PS2 has inferior graphics than Xbox but I guess graphics were not that important back then...Hypocrites. Also, this is about MW2, why bring up KZ2 and Uncharted and graphics...This is in every article related to an X360 exclusive or Multiplatform game...grow up people and enjoy games and stop trolling around like 12 years old.
i agree to the fullest. what they cant understand is the cod 4 still has the best online multiplayer...and MW 2 will take over cod4 and then have the best/most played/multiplayer on both systems.....doest matter of graphics.... its not the ps3 owners with the problem it is the ignorant fanboys....but no matter what when this game comes out dont expect alot of people to still be playing killzowns.....because it is about to get ownd.
it's the fanboys, the people who are just sore seeing ps3 in 3rd place. they don't want to yield even an inch to microsoft's very commendable showing this gen. it took guts to come back after xbox's failure to actually BEAT sony at its own game. and it wasn't dirty tricks, a disc format, or fancy named hardware that did it. it was 1st rate online gaming and being very well priced. an hd gaming console that consistently delivers the games and features we've come to expect this gen, in spite of ps3's hyped superiority and for LESS than a ps3? ms has my respect for that!
they have a zombie mode or something along thous lines as a extra like Treyarch did. Zombie modes a game with in itself?!!.lol so much fun! I.ward should do sum thing like..erm..a chemical outbreak in a contained area, and your the last line of defense (28 days later)to stop the hoard of infected people before breaching the barriers!..whos with me!.come...whos with me!..(jerry mcguire quote)
looks the same as cod4
GOTY MULTIPLAYER FOR SURE MW2 FTW!!!!!!!!!!!
