The next Call of Duty game is almost here and there’s so much to look forward to. We know the Modern Warfare 2 release date is almost here, but we need to take a moment to talk about some of the Modern Warfare 2 game modes. We can gush over the new Modern Warfare 2 gunsmith – and all the new Modern Warfare 2 guns we’ll be able to customise in said gunsmith – but, it’s worth talking about which playlists you’ll be using these in.

You’ll be pleased to know that there’s going to be two new game modes in Modern Warfare 2 – both of which bring a new aspet to the multiplayer experience we know and love. Of course, classics like Team Deathmatch and Domination are returning, but… There’s still a lot more to the Modern Warfare 2 game modes list than meets the eye – and suggests that we’re going to get a few interesting playlists in the future.

Interestingly, Modern Warfare 2 is getting a dedicated third person mode at launch – which we’re thrilled about – and Activision is promising even more surprises in the future.

So, it’s safe to say that this is going to be one exciting Call of Duty multiplayer experience.
