“We want to make the best Call of Duty released with the best graphics and re-imagined features,” Rodrigo Perez, franchise manager, told g1. “[Em relação ao game anterior]we have improved the artificial intelligence of the enemies, created a revolutionary and unified technology of visuals, which will be used in the next games of the series and also [battle royale] ‘Warzone’ ‘.

There are also promises of content that has never been seen since its launch, such as new maps, regimes, seasonal events and community holidays.
g1 accompanied the presentation by members of this new “Call of Duty” Infinity Ward development studio, which featured the news of the title. In the Campaign mode of the game, players accompany Task 141 in campaign mode with missions performed around the world. Promise can play online alone or with a group. Warzone mode is one of the most popular war pianos of today, along with Fortnite and Free Fire.
In 2019, when the studio offered a reboot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the stakes were set in search of realism, which was impossible due to current technology when the first of the series arrived in 2007. They were called back. The Infinity Ward veterans of the first game and the team traveled to areas that could be used for photogrammetry of homes, vehicles, furniture and other items. This allowed that game to be the “real” one the team was looking for. In fact, the development team claims that this is the first game that has managed to simulate the use of night vision goggles. In previous games, the presentation of this element was just a green filter.
Three years later, for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, the team used the same resources, but managed to improve the technology by using tricks that were less popular on consoles and computers at the time. Ray Tracing is available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, and current video computers, with real-time light simulation that illuminates the environment and reflects landscapes and objects. Combined with high-resolution (4K resolution) textures, it brings game environments, characters, weapons and situations closer to reality.

The team also invested in water exploration. It is difficult to reproduce an element in games. This requires a lot of computing power and the result may be far from what the public expects. The job for CoD: Modern Warfare II was to get players to use the water to their advantage. “Water affects the game as much as the weather,” Perez said. The player can dive to avoid being detected by enemies and use stealth to destroy them.
But not everything is an advantage. The water lens effect prevents the player from seeing, which means he has to aim more clearly to hit his opponents in campaign and multiplayer modes. Also, a bullet fired out of the water is realistic: the bullet loses speed and needs multiple shots to kill a soldier – when the same weapon goes out of the water, one bullet is enough.
In addition to night skirmishes and water missions, vehicles became more important. You can, for example, drive cars that will take you to other points of the mission.
Another thing that developers have been working on for the last three years is artificial intelligence. In addition to the enemies who respond more convincingly to the player’s attacks and strategies, the protagonist’s own allies are now smarter, whether they seek protection or strengthen it. In previous games, at the beginning of the mission, for example, you go to the battlefield after the soldiers. However, his movement was questionable because he was not busy with his usual circle.

In Modern Warfare II, your allies are worried about everything: every corner, window, or corner where the opponent is hiding. During a war, they are behind the cover, looking for the best support for the attack. Be in the demonstration g1 Looking, this question worked very well. You need to see if the latest version of the game has these features.
One of the most notable features of the First Modern Warfare, the Gunsmith mode (“Gunsmith” in the English version) is back with more features. This allows you to tailor each tool to the player’s wishes and needs. The new game will add more details and features, such as optical displays, larger cartridges, pillars and other real-world weapons. However, it should be noted that this brings advantages and disadvantages to dealing with each reliance. Settings can be used for both campaign and online matching.
Another thing to note is that the game is presented in the highest quality version (PC, Xbox Series and PS5). PS4 and Xbox One versions not shown. It remains to be seen whether the platforms of the previous generation will be weaker than the current ones and will be able to withstand the same level of graphical realism and artificial intelligence.

As the largest market in Latin America (Mexico is considered North America), Brazil is important for Activision and the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is one of the most important markets of the year.
“The community [de “Call of Duty”] Very strong in Brazil. We want to attract more players for this release. That’s why we bring the game, which is fully localized in Portuguese, in the same quality as the previous works in the series, ”explained Perez.
The franchise manager explains that the technology, which was developed for the title and will be extended to Warzone and future games, will further strengthen the community and the identity of the series with it.
