According to the information revealed by the developers, the most significant changes to the classic MW2 maps will be for visual fidelity and clarity. Of course, the lighting has been significantly improved, the colors of some buildings have been changed, and some areas have been covered with different materials. The goal of each of these changes is to improve player visibility.
But that’s not all the changes that have been made. The developers have added some components that reflect the differences in movement between the original game and the new version. Players can find new ledges for cover among these new components. In addition, there will be some additional areas where you can swim and others where you can experience much more dynamic shootouts.
Activision’s new installment should be an impressive tribute to one of the best Call of Duty games in the franchise’s history. Gamers who love the classic game can feel right at home again.
