Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 remastered goes live on PC and Xbox One

CALL of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is now out on Xbox One and PC.

The souped-up remake breathes new life into the 2009 shooter with boosted graphics and the addition of 4K visuals.

Modern Warfare 2 Remastered (MW2R) has been out on PS4 for a month, but due to an exclusive deal Xbox and PC gamers have had to wait until April 30.

The download only features the Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) campaign mode – meaning no multiplayer – with spruced up graphics.

Released by US developer Activsion in 2009, the original MW2 won critical acclaim for its slick campaign and hugely popular multiplayer mode.

The game followed Task Force 141, a special forces unit hunted the leader of a Russian ultranationalist party.

It sparked controversy for a mission in which you mow down innocent citizens in an airport as part of a terrorist attack.

And now Activision is cashing in on the game for a second time with the release of a Remastered version.

MW2R costs $20 (about £16) and is available via the Xbox One's integrated store, and the client for PC.

The revamped package features a bunch of visual upgrades eked out of the game using the latest hardware.

Among the updates are improved animations, high dynamic range (HDR) lighting, and the odd visual in 4K.

This isn't the first Call of Duty game to be tuned up for a re-release.

Back in 2016, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare also got a hugely popular remastered released.

Reworked versions of various maps from Modern Warfare, MW2 and Modern Warfare 3 have all made it into the newest CoD title.

In other news, Call of Duty Modern Warfare recently added a new Fortnite-style game mode called Warzone.

A Call of Duty YouTube star has revealed his top tips to help you dominate multiplayer mode.

The Sun described Modern Warfare as "thrilling but not perfect" in our comprehensive review last year.
