Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2: what gives the multiplayer with a 3rd person camera? New gameplay on PS5!
This is certainly one of the major new features for the Call of Duty saga: it is possible to play in third person with an external camera. Suffice to say that this is a game-changer and here are some first glimpses, gameplay in support.
The war seen from above
The end of the year is damn busy, to say the least. Between Pokémon Scarlet / Violet, God of War Ragnarok or Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, there should be something for everyone and everyone tries to play their game as best they can. Regarding Infinity Ward’s FPS, which is unsurprisingly highly anticipated, the game will offer a return to the roots of the Modern Warfare experience by pushing all the sliders to the limit with even some interesting new features.
One of them is even very surprising since it allows you to play multiplayer… with a third-person camera. A feature still unthinkable for a Call of Duty, spearhead of the FPS for almost two decades now! And yet, the developers try the experiment, although this one is obviously optional. Here is a video captured by us:
Take a step back from the situation
The Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta has just started and it is the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 that are in the spotlight initially, reserved for those who have pre-ordered the game on these platforms. Whatever, the opportunity is then given to see what the multiplayer looks like, the feeling of the weapons, (the customization of the latter even further) and therefore the external camera.
In reality, this is not constant since with each aim, the view becomes subjective again. The TPS side is therefore not immutable and for good reason: it quickly unbalances the parties, those opting for a third-person camera gaining visibility compared to others choosing the FPS. We will also notice that the view highlights character animations that are not always very smooth, things that we obviously did not see on our protagonist before.
Remember that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will be released on October 28 on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One. To know everything about the beta, it happens here.
