Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Release and Preload Times on All Platforms

Even though the day hasn’t arrived just yet, we can celebrate its arrival, right? Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is literally just around the corner, and its release occurs in a couple of hours. So let’s see when exactly you will be able to dive into its multiplayer component and battle some of the most experienced human players online.

Those who had the opportunity to play the campaign know that something huge is boiling, and the TARKOV lovers anticipating the extraction-based DMZ game mode are in for a treaty. I mean, the game will arrive with MW2’s season 1, which is not at launch, but that shouldn’t discourage you from experiencing and finding your sweet spot throughout the multiplayer.

The ability to loot and craft some of the items depicted throughout some of the missions in the campaign indeed rings a bell of something big. The DMZ game mode arrives on November 16, which is not too far from the official release. With all that said, let’s see exactly when the Multiplayer component for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 lands.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
