Modern Warfare 2 Adopts Steamworks on PC

By Nick Breckon, Oct 23, 2009 12:20pm PDT Activision and Valve today announced that they've hammered out an agreement to get Valve's Steamworks suite of tools onto the PC version of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2.

"All PC versions of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be powered by Steamworks, providing gamers with auto-updating, anti-cheat technology, Steam Achievements, and the recently introduced Steam Cloud," reads the release.

Modern Warfare 2 PC will come loaded with 50 Steam achievements. As with other Steamworks titles, the game will also be accessible from any computer, with Steam Cloud providing persistent settings.

"Steam is the hands down leader in offering a community focused experience on PC and the inclusion of Steamworks has allowed us to deliver the most feature-rich PC version to ever come from Infinity Ward, which at the end of the day will mean the most to our fans," said Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling.

  • pity that the consumer in the gaming industry has no expression or visiblity in the economic scene.
    I mean, say a big stored decided to pull something like Activision and IW did on this game and you'd get thousands of consumers protesting outside their stores. You'd have national and international coverage. The store's stock price would drop and drama is spread loose.

    But here? nah.. just an online petition, thousands of online posts and there is no real-world implications. Pity.

    on a side note, Activision stock has been droppping ( I think we need more high-profile coverage who can link the uproar by the fans, the pre-orders that have been being canceled, the stock price falling and the silence by activision and infinty ward.

    So call yer journalist friends and have them do a story on this subject. Take impressions from the gamers, the retailers who are seeing their pre-orders cancelled (most of them actually lose money), and official word by activision and infinity ward, and opinions by game industry key-players.


    This is serious business.

    gamers deserve more visibility.

    i dont know any journalist or i'd have him tipped off. And not online journalists, i mean big print magazines.
