Hey guys, 360-HQ.com is as always, on the lookout for the gaming news that matters to our gaming community and quick to get it out to you ASAP.
ON THE FLY HOST MIGRATION!
CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR VIDEO AND ANALYSIS
Today we have some great news for the COD series gaming community. We have learned that the next instalment "Modern Warefare 2" will feature (for the first time ever) IN GAME ON THE FLY HOST MIGRATION! Now when a host quits out of a multiplayer match mid game or his internet connection goes to SH**, the game will no longer quit out and send everyone to the lobby, Now when this happens the game play will pause for a few seconds as a new host is chosen from the room list then the game continues where it left off. You can see this at the end of the new game play video below at the 1:41 mark.
But that is not all we have gathered from this new video, At 1:49 when the new host is chosen and game continues you will see FOURZEROTWO get pawned with a "THROWING KNIFE" to the back. As this happens you will see a box pop up at bottom of the screen showing who you killed, This is something new, What is this all about, First it says "my name is..." (why is this needed if the screen to the left already shows they guys name you killed? is this a possible area where you can put something other than your gamer tag, sort of like a clan tag option but with more letters? Then to the right of that in the same box you will see an avatar which looks like something custom? perhaps we get to choose or make our own avatar to show up? This might be fun, it would be more noticeable if you are killing or being killed by the same guy over and over if you see his avatar popping up a lot during a match. If you watch the video from the beginning you will see each player killed has totally custom looking boxes coming up.
MULTIPLE ATTACHMENTS?? If you look at the weapon being used by the player at 1:50 you will see that it has 3 attachments! Red dot sight, Grip, and a Suppressor. Ill tell you what, more attachments at once and host migration were 2 of the big issues for the series in our gaming community. Wonder if they got the "NAME TAG NOT SHOWING UP" issue fixed yet?
I have to say I am excited about some of the new environments we will have access to. First off the winter snowy levels we have seen in earlier videos (man we better get some of those for multi-player) and here we get to see a desert area, perhaps Afghanistan?
A few other items, the video gives away the first 3 kill streaks you can earn, 3 kills gives you UAV, 4 kills gives you AIRDROP (we do not know if this is supply replenishment or a weapon of some sort) and 5 kills gives you access to a PREDATOR DRONE MISSILE STRIKE.
This video shows a new game play mode as well, FLAG RUNNER, in this game mode it is also given away that you can use a swat Shield in multi-player, but it is not 100% protective as we see a player get shot in the face with a pistole right through the shield.
You can see the video and screen shots of the Shield use, kill streak icons, new in game gamer tags, the throwing knife etc. by clicking HERE
