Someone got their hands on an early copy of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 recently and was kind enough to leak a new video that shows third person gameplay. As a huge fan of the SOCOM series, I like the option of first and third person.
Infinity Ward had this to say:
"3rd Person is a new playlist mode in Multiplayer," says Infinity Ward's creative strategist Robert Bowling. "So you can play your favorite playlists [or] game types, like Team Deathmatch just standard, or in Hardcore mode ([with] limited HUD and increased bullet damage) or in the new 3rd Person mode, which means you and everyone in the game is in 3rd person."
"When you're in a 3rd Person playlist you can't toggle in and out, you're always in 3rd person," he says, adding "You can't toggle 3rd person view on or off in a standard game type either, people in 3rd person can't play with people in 1st person, they're entirely different game modes. This is just another way to play the game."
I don't know about you guys, but I'm looking forward to it.
