    Продолжение нашумевшего боевика Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, разошедшегося по всему миру тиражом 10 миллионов экземпляров и удостоившегося звания «Игра 2007 года» от большинства игровых изданий.

    Действие разворачивается спустя несколько лет после событий, произошедших в первой части блокбастера.

    В составе спецотряда по борьбе с терроризмом под командованием капитана Джона Мактавиша игрок примет участие в опаснейших операциях в самых разных уголках мира: в заснеженных горах Казахстана и трущобах Рио-де-Жанейро, в песках Афганистана и даже на бескрайних просторах России. В захватывающих дух перестрелках и рукопашных схватках с экстремистами бойцы элитного отряда будут использовать новейшее оружие, снаряжение и технику.

    • Новые операции. Масштабная одиночная кампания, продолжающая события оригинальной игры.

    • Плечом к плечу. Кооперативный режим «Спецоперации», в котором представлен ряд сценариев для двух участников. По мере приобретения бойцами опыта, им будут открываться все более сложные миссии, как сюжетно перекликающиеся с одиночной кампанией, так и абсолютно независимые.

    • Друг против друга. Новые многопользовательские режимы, а также уникальные способности и навыки, доступные лишь в сетевых сражениях.

    • С риском для жизни. Выполняя опасные миссии в экстремальных условиях: в заснеженных горах, безжизненных пустынях и даже под водой, игроки будут использовать всевозможное современное оружие, новейшее снаряжение и технику.

    • Красивый экшен. Эффектные динамичные перестрелки и жестокие рукопашные схватки, по зрелищности не уступающие эпизодам из лучших голливудских боевиков.
