The MW2 engine ran great, but no dedicated servers was the death rattle for that game.

I think I'd actually prefer the updated Source engine over the MW2 engine.

actually it's still hugely popular. infact, spectacularly popular. But I don't play it any more. It gets kind of boring after a while in MP. not alot of depth there.

kill, die, kill, kill, die, die. Migrate server. Repeat.

(always repeat).

I'm pretty sure drivers and faster CPU's will change that in the future.

For sure. Will probably do the same myself when new drivers improve performance with 3 cards.

Great counter-argument.

Name one game that will use it. Name one game than you cannot max on 2 480s.

They must be if two cards of greater ability can't do much better than my one card.

I believe you, I am just saying if the game can't even be maxed with 2 480s, when every other game out there can be maxed on one 280, well... that is some serious ****.

And to be honest, it don't look that good.

Singleplayer


* Vietnam is just a small part of the story. The games story is set across a large period of time.
* Some of the singleplayer maps are based on multiplayer maps, which is usually the other way around.
* In some missions you have the option to move in stealthily or go in guns blazing.
* The enemy AI is smarter. They will now try to dodge if you aim at them.


Multiplayer


* Multiplayer has been in development from day one.
* Lean is back!
* Vehicles will be returning.
* Create-A-Class 2.0 includes deep customization and new features.
* The game will include a "barebones" game mode.
1. As the name implies, there won't be any perks or killstreaks, just old school gameplay.
* Many familiar weapons will be making a return, including the AK-47.
* The region filter is back.
* Improved matchmaking and server browser.
* Modern Warfare 2's host migration will be included.
* Auto-Aim can be turned on/off.
* PC gamers will be able to enjoy the comfort and luxury of dedicated servers.
* The PC version will have an anti-cheat software, but it's unknown if it's Punkbuster.
* There will be support for the competitive community, which will include great tools.
* The team focusing on the multiplayer aspect of the game is twice the size (World at War).


Co-op Mode


* There will be 2-4 player co-op.
* Supports 2 player offline split-screen.
* It won't be based on the singleplayer campaign.
* Zombies might be making a return from World at War.


Miscellaneous


* The game engine is a heavily modified version of the IW engine which was used in World at War.
* The game runs at 60 FPS!
* Physics destruction is going to be limited, so no Battlefield Bad Company 2 style "blow holes in the walls" gameplay.
* The PC version will look better than the console versions (duh).
* There are over 200 people working on Black Ops!
