New Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Footage Reveals Seamless Host Migration Support

While the action on display in this new Modern Warfare 2 "flag runner" clip is impressive, the more enticing bit of footage comes with the disconnect screen--or lack thereof.

Note that as the multiplayer game's host leaves near the end of the clip, the game searches for a new host and instantly reconnects the players a la Halo 3. A welcome in-game feature for anybody that's been rudely disconnected while on the verge of a glorious backstab.

      Hard to top it in sales maybe, but some people aren't into surrealistic combat in claustrophobic environments.
      I'd rather play Batman: AA.
      Hopefully Operation Flashpoint 2 will be as good as the trailers make it out to be.

        Seriously. I haven't figured out the draw to this. It still seems like nothing but mindless shooting and points flying up everywhere.

          And to a lot of people, that is the best thing ever.

          I found the original MP to be fun for a while, I quickly bored of it. So easy to rack up kills on the PC version, everything is just so cramped and prone to spam.

            It's a console shooter first, that's why it is so spammy and cramped.

          It's a lot of things. It's a really well done single player campaign with some of the best presentation in a video game ever. It's an addictive little multiplayer deathmatch-grindfest. It's at its best when its a more modern iteration of Counter-Strike. Basically 6v6 Search and Destroy. Super competitive, super awesome.
