A new batch of gameplay from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II has been leaked online showcasing some pretty impressive new mechanics. The videos were spotted on Twitter at first and then later uploaded to Streamable after Activision issued a DMCA takedown notice to remove the content off the platform.
Sadly, like most gameplay leaks, this footage is taken off-screen meaning someone recorded it off a TV and didn’t even bother turning the phone sidewards when doing so. The good news is that you can kinda get an idea of what’s going on in the video and the various segments the leaker was trying to reveal.
The first video clip shows off a cool-looking car chase scene where the player is firing down on enemies in a bakkie speeding through the desert. However, the clip then shows off a jumping mechanic where the player has to leap to the back of the car, take down an enemy and proceed to the driver’s door in order to hijack this moving vehicle.
It is quite an impressive scene and doesn’t seem at all scripted. In fact, it kind of gives me flashbacks to games like Uncharted where the player has to move about an action scene in order to get through the game.
The second clip isn’t anything special. It simply shows the player hitting a painting on the wall and it swaying from side to side. I am not sure if the player wanted to show off the game’s physics or what’s going on there. It is hardly impressive. The final clip shows some underwater gameplay where the player is swimming through an area and moves his hands around to break through the seaweed.
The first clip is definitely the coolest to watch here and gives us hope that this year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II campaign might actually be some of the best action we have seen from the series to date. The game is set to launch on 28 October for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
