On November 10th, 2009, acclaimed developer Infinity Ward will make itâ€™s return with the release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, the sequel to the multiple Game Of The Year winner Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
HMV are proud to be supporting the release with a huge midnight opening event to be held at HMVâ€™s Trocadero store in Londonâ€™s Piccadilly Circus on Monday 9th November 2009.
The launch night starts at 12-midnight (Monday night, Tuesday morning) with a heavy military presence descending on the store. Fans can then buy copies of the game including a HMV exclusive â€˜Prestige Editionâ€™ (with night vision goggles) available to buy on the night (subject to availability).
â€˜Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2â€™ is set directly after the events of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The radical Ultranationalists have returned to prominence under the leadership of Vladimir Makarov, a former associate of Imran Zakhaev but with his own ambitions. Makarov, no longer kept in check and with his ambitions growing is building a strong power base. Fearful of Makarov’s growing influence, the global community established Task Force 141 to counter the threat posed by the resurgent Ultranationalists.
An early campaign mission called “Cliffhanger” was demonstrated during E3 2009, following the player character Sergeant Sanderson as he and Captain MacTavish infiltrated a Russian base in the Tian Shan mountain range in Kazakhstan and escaped on snowmobiles. Winning â€˜Best Shooting Gameâ€™ at E3 in 2009 and with recent accolades claiming â€œThe benchmark for action games has just been raisedâ€*, excitement around the release of what looks to be the biggest game ever has never been bigger.

Please note that customers wishing to attend this event should consider their travel plans and make necessary travel arrangements to get home after purchasing the game.
