Modern Warfare 2’s remastered campaign has released early for some German players – and it retains the controversial ‘No Russian’ sequence.
The mission in question has players undercover with a group of terrorists, who then gun down innocent civilians in an airport. In most versions of the game players have the choice of whether they join in or not, however in the German release shooting civilians results in failure.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: In the original version of Modern Warfare 2 players were issued with a “disturbing content notice” at the start of the campaign, offering the option to skip the mission entirely.
As you can see in the footage below, the sequence now features even more visual detail with new elements added to the airport itself.
