In an unprecedented move for the series, Activision has confirmed that Modern Warfare 2’s campaign will go live ahead of the game’s full launch, giving players the chance to jump in and finish the story early. Here’s what you need to know.

For the past two decades, players have always been faced with a difficult decision when launching each new CoD title. Do you have to get through the campaign first or dive straight into the multiplayer on day one?

For many, the race to quickly unlock weapons and pack prestige often meant neglecting the single player experience. To make sure this doesn’t happen, Activision is giving everyone plenty of time to watch the Modern Warfare 2 campaign early.

A separate early access launch ahead of the full release will allow players around the world to take the time to complete the new storyline and venture through Task Force 141’s latest journey. Not only that, but by playing the campaign, you’ll even unlock some exclusive goodies for use in multiplayer. Here’s a full rundown of everything there is to know.
