Infinity Ward to fix Modern Warfare 2 audio and visibility issues following beta feedback



Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s open beta just wrapped, and it was the biggest in the franchise’s long history. Developer Infinity Ward is taking community feedback to heart, promising to address fan criticism and concerns ahead of the shooter’s October 28 launch.

Infinity Ward thanks the beta participants for participating in the beta over the past two weeks and The studio outlined the changes to be made in response. Work will be done to balance the audio mix between enemy and ally footsteps, allowing players to better distinguish friend from foe. In addition, the visibility of enemies will be increased to allow better tracking of opponents beyond the traditional nameplate.

The developer is very happy with the weapon tuning, which was tweaked between the first and second weeks of the beta. Infinity Ward notes the many bugs present in the battle map modes Ground War and Invasion and mentions that AI improvements are coming to the latter game mode.

From our experience last week, the beta was surprisingly fun, and we look forward to diving into the full experience. With Battlefield 2042 existing in such a sorry state, MW2 could give us the largely vehicle-based multiplayer experience we’ve been craving, which is somewhat quirky and oddly interesting.
