The Modern Warfare 2 release time is coming up – but exactly when it hits for you will depend on several factors. There are several release times, in fact, and when it unlocks for you will depend on which platform you’re planning on playing the FPS game on, and whether you intend to pre-order it.
Those that have pre-ordered the game already have access to the campaign, but if you’re already finished with the Modern Warfare 2 mission list and completed the Modern Warfare 2 ending, here’s when the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer release time is happening.
Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer release time
For the full game, pre-load begins October 26 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST for PC players.
Moving west to east, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 PC launch time is:
- 9pm PT, October 27
- 12am ET, October 28
- 5am BST, October 28
- 6am CEST, October 28
Unfortunately, your beta progress won’t carry over, and when you boot the full game up for the first time you may be hit with a prompt that requires you to reset your unlocks before you jump into multiplayer. No getting around that we’re afraid – you’ll need to start from scratch.
This is when you’ll be able to tackle multiplayer for the first time since the beta and get your teeth sunk into the best Modern Warfare 2 guns, leveling up with the Modern Warfare 2 prestige system, and start unlocking operators. Or, if you fancy some co-op action, Spec Ops is the mode you’ll be after.
Be sure to check out the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 system requirements to make sure you’re ready for launch day. The PC trailer features some 500 customisation options, so it seems as though you’ll be able to tinker with it to get it running on most systems.
