In homage to the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009, which was the only title in franchise history to have this, the upcoming MW2 will also feature 3rd-person game modes. Here's what we know so far about 3rd-person modes in MW2.
Third-Person Game Modes Confirmed For Modern Warfare 2
3rd-Person game modes have been confirmed for Modern Warfare 2, in honor of the original MW2 from 2009, which was the only game in franchise history to support 3rd-person play. We won't get to play the 3rd-person modes during the beta, sadly, but we will get to try them on launch (October 28). The 3rd-person game modes will have their own playlist within the Modern Warfare 2 matchmaking system, and they're likely to include the core modes: Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, and Search and Destroy (sadly we probably won't get a 3rd-person option for the new game modes).
What do you think about Call of Duty in 3rd-person? Is that something you just don't like in your CoD games, or will you be trying it out when Modern Warfare 2 launches? We're pretty hyped for it, hell, I definitely want to see the new ledge-hanging mechanic in 3rd-person.
We're curious how these new gameplay features will work in 3rd-person...
