Currently, the Campaign Early Access is available to play if you pre-ordered the game. However, Activision has recommended pre-loading the rest of Modern Warfare 2 before or during this event to ensure that Multiplayer and Special Ops will be ready for launch.
When the game officially releases on Oct. 28, MW2 Pre-Season will begin, allowing players to level up in ranks and unlock new weapons before the first season starts on Nov. 16. Along with this season of the new Battle Pass, fans will be able to play Warzone 2.0, featuring the latest updates and maps.
Lastly, you can look forward to the first episode of Raids on Special Ops and the next legendary Multiplayer map for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Warzone 2.0 will also debut its first post-launch update.
