As a follow up to Call of Duty 4, Modern Warfare 2 takes place shortly after the CoD4 conflict. Sergeant MacTavish has been promoted to captain, leading an elite multinational commando unit going up against the Russian Ultranationalist organization led by Vladimir Makarov. MW2 promises to be an intense and gripping saga of heroic proportions.
Modern Warfare 2 promises all the action-packed gameplay as CoD4 and more, with a conflict that threatens to throw the world into turmoil. With Task Force 141, you have been assigned to stop Makarov's forces in their tracks. They've acquired strong support in Russia following a campaign of propaganda, portraying previous leader Zakhaev's death as an act of martyrdom.
The missions are set across the globe: deep in the snow-covered glaciers of the Russian mountains; in the sweltering Afghani desert; and in the bustling metropolis of Rio de Janerio, Brazil.
