The Modern Warfare 2 campaign will not be coming out at the same time as the game itself. Here's why!
Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Release Date - Unlock Times, Early Access, And More

The Modern Warfare 2 campaign is being made available through an early access campaign for those who pre-order the game digitally. This is great news for those looking to get a jump on the competition when the multiplayer releases on October 28.

Whether you prefer to finish up the campaign of a game before diving into the online multiplayer or want to use the NPC enemies as target practice, here's what you need to know about getting into the Modern Warfare 2 campaign early.

Those who have successfully pre-ordered their digital copy of Modern Warfare 2 will be able to access the campaign from October 20 at 10 am PST (1 pm EST / 6 pm BST). It should be emphasized that this is only available to those who purchased their digital copy via the Xbox / PlayStation online store, Battle.net, or Steam.

If you have pre-ordered a physical copy of Modern Warfare 2, you will be able to play the campaign on October 28, the same day as the game's official release. 

The campaign itself is said to feature missions from various locations worldwide, including Europe, America, and Asia. These said missions will feature underwater combat, stealthy assassinations, and much more. It is well worth pre-ordering the game if you plan to purchase it on release in order to get access to the great campaign a whole week early!

It was also possible to get access to the beta by pre-ordering the digital copy of Modern Warfare 2, but as that has long since ended, the only benefit now is access to the early campaign.

Additionally, pre-ordering the Vault Edition will give players access to four multiplayer operators (Ghost, Farah, Price, and Soap), the FJX Ciner Weapon Vault, and the Season 1 Battle Pass with 50 Tier Skips.
