Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and fans of 2019’s Modern Warfare are eager to jump back into this narrative and uncover where Captain Price’s adventures are taking him next. However, it’s not all about Captain Price and Task Force 141 – there’s a new game mode that has everyone talking too. In Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, DMZ is a new game mode that’s going to change the way people play CoD multiplayer modes. If you’re wondering what it’s all about, we have you covered.

At the moment, details on the next Call of Duty game are light – we don’t even really have a solid Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 release date to talk about yet. However, Infinity Ward isn’t an impenetrable fortress and information is slipping through the cracks when it comes to what fans can expect to see – this includes the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 DMZ mode. So, before we continue, it’s worth taking everything below with a grain of salt – we’ll provide evidence where we can, but we might not see confirmation of any of these details for some time yet.

Still, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get excited about what’s coming – there’s a lot to look forward to. Keep reading to find out what we mean.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 DMZ mode details

As previously mentioned, details are light on Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2’s new “third mode” – which will be available alongside the single-player campaign and multiplayer offerings.

However, there are a few loose details that should get you excited. Leaker Tom Henderson has been at the heart of quite a number of Modern Warfare 2 leaks over the last few months and they have revealed that the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 DMZ mode will be an extraction-based multiplayer experience akin to Escape From Tarkov.

Henderson, in a recent report via Exputer, has also revealed that Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ mode will share a map with Warzone 2 – in a similar fashion to how Modern Warfare 2019’s Special Ops and Survival Mode shared a map with Warzone – originally, anyway. There are conflicting reports surrounding this information, though – with rumours of several bespoke DMZ maps also in development, so take this with a grain of salt until we know more.

TheGhostOfHope’, another prominent Call of Duty leaker, has added to this claim stating via Twitter that the Modern Warfare 2 DMZ mode will include a marketplace where items can be bought and traded. You are able to earn skins, blueprints and more from DMZ that are usable across multiplayer and eventually Warzone 2.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 DMZ mode gameplay

At the moment, there isn’t any Modern Warfare 2 DMZ mode gameplay to talk about. Henderson has suggested that our first official look at the next Call of Duty game will be via a cinematic announcement trailer during this year’s Summer Game Fest – on June 8 – with gameplay footage following shortly after.

So, fans won’t have long to wait – however, if you’ve played a Call of Duty game before, don’t expect this title to buck the trend. It’s still going to be a first-person shooter.
