'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' (ALL) Multiplayer Neutered At 9vs9

by Rainier on Nov. 4, 2009 @ 1:01 p.m. PST

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is an upcoming first-person shooter video game. It is the sixth installment of the Call of Duty series and the direct sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, continuing along the same storyline.

While MW2 may be Gamestop's highest selling pre-order, the fact that there will be no dedicated server support caused quite a stir. Now PC gamers get further kicked to the curb as a recent Live Chat reveals that the PC multiplayer will only support 9vs9 (compared to World at War's 25vs25).

Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 continues the gripping and heart-racing action as players face off against a new threat dedicated to bringing the world to the brink of collapse.

Beginning with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s worldwide release on Nov. 10, fans can arm themselves with Xbox 360 Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition Console, which features an exclusive design inspired by the epic thriller, more storage space than ever before in a 250GB Hard Drive, two Xbox 360 Wireless Controllers, as well as an Xbox 360 Headset and a Standard Edition copy of “Modern Warfare 2” for an estimated retail price of $399.99 (USD).

All PC versions of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be powered by Steamworks, providing gamers with auto-updating, anti-cheat technology, Steam Achievements, and the recently introduced Steam Cloud.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for PC will include 50 Steam Achievements, enticing players to train a local militia and be "Back in the Saddle" or infiltrate the snowy mountain side base and earn the "Cold Shoulder." Fans may access the game from any computer. And through Steam Cloud, multiplayer game progress will be stored persistently and travel with the player.
