3rd-Person View Mode for Modern Warfare 2?
Back in September, Infinity Ward’s community manager Robert Bowling, teased fanboys of Modern Warfare that the second installment would have a game changing mode, which was yet to be revealed. The only thing he promised is “once you see it, you completely forget everything we’ve already talked about. It becomes this whole new game. That’s what I’m excited for.”
Today, the image above has leaked, claiming to be from a Modern Warfare 2, which shows off some the modes for online multiplayer. Where ever this image was captured from, it seems like it was being broadcasted online using a webcam because of the “ON2” logo on the bottom right of the picture. The text is apparently in a foreign language, but people have already began to translate it and Kombo has done just that. It includes your standard modes like deathmatch, free-for-all and capture the flag. But one thing stands out and that would be the option to include a third-person view for team deathmatch. Meaning, there could be a mode that will have the camera follow the character, like Gears of War, instead of seeing just the gun in front of your television. Could that be the so-called game changer? Maybe, but I don’t find it huge.
This was not the only thing leaked today that hints towards a third-person mode. A video claiming to be from Modern Warfare 2, is showing the whole character, instead of just the gun. However, this could be nothing more than a person following a soldier because whomever is playing has already died and is waiting for the next round to start. If you want to watch the video, check it out after the jump.
Again, I’m not sure how “gaming changing” this constitutes. If this ends up being true, I don’t think this does anything more than please some gamers who might have made the switch from the SOCOM series to Modern Warfare. Personally, I would rather play in a first-person view.
