May 24th, 2022 - Modern Warfare II Comes to Port
The Call of Duty franchise has never been known for subtly, from massive action movie style set pieces to white knuckle multiplayer action, it goes big. It's only fitting that in the next leg of revealing Modern Warfare II, Activision pulled out the "biggest-in-sheer-size" entertainment advertisements of all time. The latest rollout involved cargo ships, drones and thousands of square feet of MW2 artwork.
Ships passing in the night
During a 24-hour period, a crew moved a huge cargo ship with a 90,000 square foot Modern Warfare II wrap that prominently displayed the popular and fan-favorite Call of Duty video game character Simon "Ghost" Riley. When the ship docked at Long Beach Port, California, a huge puzzle was revealed, as the docking area contained another MW2 image that matched with the cargo ship's wrap.
Eyes in the sky
The docking occurred as drone footage captured the ship's movement, while also providing a first look at the game's squad, "Task Force 141." You can have a look at the entire high flying sequence here:
The reveal showed off which includes a global cast of characters; from fan favourites like Captain John Price, John "Soap" MacTavish, Kyle "Gaz" Garrick, and a new character, Mexican Special Forces Colonel Alejandro Vargas. The artwork also finally revealed the worldwide release date of the eagerly anticipated title for October 28, 2022.
