As Call of Duty fans wait for Activision to reveal the future of the franchise later today, some players have already been diving into the settings of the recent Modern Warfare 2 beta to spot new details.
The beta, which is set to go live tomorrow evening, is available to preload now for those who have pre-ordered the game.
The most notable finding has been the option to adjust the “3rd Person Field of View,” which implies that the game will feature a third-person game mode, as well as an FOV slider on console.
The addition of a third-person mode would be a huge change for the first-person shooter. The last Call of Duty to feature a third-person playlist was the original Modern Warfare 2 back in 2009. It’s return then for the reboot would be nice nod to the old series.
The FOV slider is also a much-requested feature by console players, have been one of the primary benefits of playing the series on PC. Adjusting field-of-view has typically been disabled on consoles due to performance-related issues.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is set to release on 28th October.
