Infinity Ward revealed some key numbers and details about Modern Warfare 2 on Game Trailers TV last night. Plus they made it clear that at least one part of the game will be tough.
GTTV host Geoff Keighley got word that character-leveling in Modern Warfare 2 will go to level 70 this time, with the Prestige status system making a return.
He also confirmed that the new multiplayer perk of being able to fire at enemies from an AC-130, which is available after the player pulls off 11 consecutive kills, is not the ultimate killstreak perk. Infinity Ward wouldn't reveal what the better perk(s) is/are or what size killstreak will be needed to activate them.
IW boss Vince Zampella avoided providing another key number, but at least let it be known that the figure will be great then 1. He confirmed that players will get in the boots of "multiple characters" in the new game.
Also noted in the episode is that the Special Ops missions will not have checkpoints. If a player is killed, the mission starts over.
