Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer will “always be free”

Thursday, 18th June 2009 11:02 GMT By Patrick Garratt


You’ve seen that rumour about suspected online Call of Duty charges, right? Don’t worry, Modern Warfare 2 fans. It’ll never happen to any of Infinity Ward’s titles.

“This rumor has absolutely nothing to do with Infinity Ward or our games, including Modern Warfare 2,” said the developer’s communications boss, Rob Bowling, speaking on the firm’s forums.

“We would never introduce such a system for Modern Warfare 2 so don’t worry.

“Multiplayer will always be equal and free for everyone as always.”

Glad that’s cleared up. You can get back to the awful wait for MW2, now.

    Has this game any lineage?

    What about the rumoured £55 price tag, then? Are they denying that as well? :-)

    Ah ok glad that is cleared up….
    but still they could always introduce it into a new game or a future CoD

    £55 is what the rest of Europe pays for new games usually. Don’t complain. :P

    Well, we all know that muliplayer always costs a little more on some platforms over others. So, technically, their statment isn’t entirely truthful.

    idk about console versions but the pc version of cod4 was 49.99$. the pc version of mw2 is 59.99$. which is sad. but i don’t think it’s their fault. i think it’s activision’s. those guys r complete.. yeah, u know what i mean..

    It amazes me how much COD4 still retails for. It’s been able to hold on to its price point extremely well for a 360 / PS3 game.

    I’m not amazed.

    I think it’s because of the MP tbh. It never really gets old, whereas other games which focus on their SP side are usually ‘one-upped’ within a few months of release.

    They’re owned by Activision, though, so it might not be up to them. Or do they have enough creative clout to call the shots on this?

    well thank god, its already ridiculous to charge full price for a fps, and paying a fee? Ahaha

    still, no post about MW from me can be considered as such without the usual MW is a piece of shit, really, it’s multiplayer for nerds, close-quarter spamming grindfest, no big news its got such tremendous success, all the idiots in the world are happy to spam this atrociously unbalanced fast-respawn hysterical suicide run. Give me BF3 instead, now thats a game not for mongs

    I never have to worry about this anyway, because I play all FPS games on the PC unless there exclusive to a console that is.

    That looks pretty good. Makes me almost wish I was as big a fan of military FPS as I used to be.

    hey, about arma2, looks epic in scale but the first person view is complete shit. don’t get me wrong, i like how u move, but the weapons r too big and it feels weird when u fire. well, at least that’s how it looks in the movie. it hasn’t been released yet, has it? on steam it says that “This game will unlock in approximately 1 week, 4 days and 8 hours”.
