PlayStation exclusive Operator Oni announced for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 – Effinate Games


There may be buzz around PlayStation’s relationship with Call of Duty due to the Xbox acquisition by Activision Blizzard, but that’s not stopping Modern Warfare 2 from giving PlayStation players some exclusive content. Anyone who pre-orders the digital version of the game on PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 4 will get exclusive access to Operator Hiro “Oni” Watanabe on launch day, for use in both Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer and Warzone 2.0.

That Oni Operator trailer paints Watanabe as a confident, decisive warrior. As he strides across the battlefield taking out enemy combatants, his monologue talks about using a variety of weapons. Watanabe declares “I am the one who fears,” saying that all these weapons are merely tools in his skilled hands. He certainly sounds like an intimidating character, and the gold-on-blue samurai-inspired armor he wears is a great aesthetic fit for the PlayStation brand.

Speaking of which, PlayStation players will be the first to try out the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer beta, diving into the game’s new underwater battles and maps like Grand Prix. It begins on Friday, September 16 on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, so it’s time to redeem those beta codes.

As for the action you can expect in the beta, the new Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer trailer can give you a good idea. Premiering at the Call of Duty Next 2022 event, it’s a great look at the new modes and mechanics coming to Modern Warfare 2. Prisoner Rescue mode, a third-person camera view, and more make their debut in the new game.

The only question you might be left with is when the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 release date actually is. The new shooter arrives on Friday, October 28, and will be available on the aforementioned PlayStation consoles, as well as Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. Pre-orders are open now and there are multiple editions to choose from.
