Remember how 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered required an online connection? Well, Activision has decided to implement the same always-on DRM for the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered – which is kind of annoying, since it doesn’t even have a single multiplayer component.

According to Spieltimes, the console versions (PS4, Xbox One) don’t have this DRM and can be played offline without issue. An online connection and account is mandatory for the PC version, however.

Activision officially announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered yesterday, but PC and Xbox gamers weren’t happy when they found out that it was a timed exclusive for the PlayStation 4. While Sony fans can play the game right now, everyone else will have to wait until April 30.

Originally developed by Infinity Ward, and now remastered by Beenox, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered delivers the full story experience with stunning high-definition visuals and the latest audio advancements. Whether you lived it back in 2009 or have yet to play this iconic blockbuster campaign, this is an experience hailed by critics as one of the most memorable and incredible single-player story campaigns ever.

Free with purchase on PS4 or pre-purchase on other platforms is the Underwater Demo Team Classic Ghost Bundle that can be equipped for play instantly in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer, Special Ops, and Call of Duty: Warzone*.

This Bundle includes the UDT Ghost Operator skin, turning Modern Warfare’s version of Ghost into the one seen in “The Only Easy Day… Was Yesterday” mission in the Modern Warfare 2 Campaign. It also has the aptly named ‘Task Force’ and ‘One For One’ weapon blueprints, a weapon charm, a Finishing Move, a calling card, an emblem, an iconic voice clip for Ghost and two Battle Pass tier skips. Get the UDT Classic Ghost Bundle free with purchase or pre-purchase of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered.
