Modern Warfare 2 will feature third-person mode for playlists


You never want to bring a third person along on a date -- not unless that date happens to be November 10th. Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling (A.K.A. fourzerotwo) has taken control and confirmed that a third-person camera viewpoint will be available in this holiday's monolithic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, though it'll be limited to specifically labeled online playlists.
"It's not something you can toggle on and off in ANY game," said Bowling. The special mode can only be played in private matches -- toggled on or off just like "Hardcore" settings -- or in playlists that are designated for third-person play. According to Bowling, everyone playing in a third-person playlist will be restricted to the viewpoint. "This is just another cool way to play the game," he said, "you obviously will still have the option to play gametypes normal as well."
Our friend, the internet, has an inscrutable video of some person running around in third person, but you're probably better off waiting for the "awesome trailer" the folks at Infinity Ward have planned. Joystiq

Going to be intresting to see what its like : P

Will there be a aim bit?

Or will it be complete random blindfire or w.e to kill a person.


Now its going to be like GoW2 sounds kind of cool. Could be tough though when switching between modes.


Hmmm might take some time getting used to, but nowu can see how retarded u look when u fail from another perspective lol


I will try it but I don't think I will like it.


I dont think i will like this mode but maybe. Will just have to wait and see


cool. I hope it will be pretty easy to play it.


wow thats going to be fun lol, i might even be able to get a kill now ;)


I have never enjoyed the 3rd person games. I always had epic failures with all except for GOW. It will be interesting to see how it works out.



mw2 is a mixture of gears of war, vegas 2 and cod4

the looks are vegas, 3rd person = gears and gameplay = cod4


getting use to the 3rd person might be hard, i know i suck at games that are in 3rd person
