June has been the month in which Activision has been encouraged to show new details of the Call of Duty that plays this year, which is none other than the reincarnation (at least in name) of the mythical Modern Warfare 2 that we already had in 2008 and that It was the starting point of the enormous success of the saga from then on. Given things like this, it is a double responsibility to reach the market in these circumstances, so Activision is doing everything possible so that no one thinks that we are not facing the best installment in recent years.
the ultimate weapon
Since the first information appeared, with the world announcement trailer, it was clear that, unlike other titles in the saga, here the main weapon we were going to have was that of the group. Not surprisingly, the advertising phrase that has been accompanying many of the official materials clearly states that “the most advanced weapon is the team”, referring to the way in which the action is going to be managed within this new installment.
This is so because Activision itself revealed at the Summer Game Fest last week a brief review of the cooperative mode within Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, which will allow us to complete the main adventure of the campaign together with friends . . And we already know how these novelties are that, when they arrive, they must be noted so that no one forgets that they are present. And that clear reference to the importance of the team seeks precisely that, to reinforce the very nature of the video game from here and until the very date of its launch.
Task Force 141
With all of the above on the table, Activision has been measuring the amount of information that reached the media and, at first, did not name those five characters that are part of the so-called Task Force 141, which will be the protagonist of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 , within the first live action video published by the North Americans. And it was this…
Already in it you could see the faces of the interpreters who have served as the basis for interpreting old acquaintances within the game such as:
Sergeant John “Soap” Mactavish
Scottish, has been part of the entire story arc of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1, 2 and 3 , both in the case of the originals and the new ones from 2019 and this one from 2022.
Sergeant Kyle “Gaz” Garrick
British, this character first appeared in Call of Duty Modern Warfare in 2019 and has a skin that honors him in Warzone.
Lieutenant Simon “Ghost” Riley
British as in the case of Gaz, he also appears in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 , Call of Duty Ghost , Call of Duty Online , Call of Duty Heroes and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered , so we can consider him a veteran of the saga.
Captain John Price
Also British, as in the case of Gaz and Ghost, he has participated in all the Call of Duty Modern Warfare that have reached the market , both the first and the following two and, therefore, also in the most recent of 2019.
Colonel Alexander Vargas
We do not find references to this Mexican Special Forces soldier in the Call of Duty lore , so it is the first incorporation never seen before to the 141 Task Force.
