Cod Modern Warfare 2 features the craziest crossover in Call of Duty history
Before Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is released at the end of October, we can test the shooter extensively in September during an open beta phase. As developer Infinity Ward has now announced, one of the multiplayer maps takes us to the Formula 1 race track Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore, which we actually only bomb over in the annual Codemasters licensed game.
Race track in Singapore becomes a CoD map
Already in the first trailer for the map, which takes us through the pit lane of the GP race track at night, we get a first taste of the map layout, including all kinds of tire stacks to cover it. According to Infinity Ward, the game will be played in 6vs6 matches on the street course.
You can see what the whole thing looks like in the video here:
