THE GRAFICAL PART

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects. 

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is supported on  Windows 10/11. The priority and primary graphics API for Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is DX12 .

GAME ENGINE

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 was developed based on the IW engine 8. In 2002, the 3D shooter Medal of Honor: Allied Assault was released - one of the games in the Medal of Honor series, which takes place during World War II. This game used the id Tech 3 game engine (then known as the Quake 3 Engine, after the name of the first game where it was used) by id Software as a technological base. Allied Assault was developed by the studio 2015, Inc., some of whose employees left the company after the release of the game to found Infinity Ward.

Infinity Ward's first game was 2003's Call of Duty, which, like Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, is set in World War II. This game is also built on the id Tech 3 engine. The choice of this technology is obviously due to the fact that Infinity Ward employees already had experience with it. Compared to the original id Tech 3, the graphics component of the engine has undergone a number of changes. So, the game began to actively use post-effects (for example, “image blur”), water is processed using shaders, which made it possible to make realistic reflections, the lighting system was complicated and dynamic soft shadows appeared. Subsequently, an official addon was also released for Call of Duty - Call of Duty: United Offensive.

Call of Duty 2 3


This diagram illustrates the history of the development of game engines of the IW Engine series On October 25, 2005, Call of Duty 2, developed by Infinity Ward, was released, which is a full-fledged continuation of the first part. Call of Duty 2 is considered the first game on the IW engine. Technically, this engine is a heavily revised id Tech 3, an evolution of the engine that was used in the very first part.

Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare

Compared to the original engine, this version has many improvements and changes: instead of the OpenGL API, the image is processed by Direct3D, several bump mapping techniques are applied, shadow processing is more complicated, the particle system and post-effects are significantly improved. The next game based on the IW engine was Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 2007. This game uses the third version of the engine (IW engine 3.0); the technology was once again refined and improved: facial animation, water surface processing, lighting effects were complicated, new post-effects appeared, such as depth of field, color correction of the image is widely used to give it a special stylization.

Call of Duty World at War

In 2008, the fifth part of the series of games was released - Call of Duty: World at War (developer: Treyarch). The game is built on the third version of the engine (IW engine 3.0), which was upgraded by Treyarch developers. Another Treyarch game, Quantum of Solace: The Game, was made on the same version of the engine. In 2009, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was released (development again passed to Infinity Ward). This game uses the next version of the engine, IW engine 4.0, with a number of improvements, including Streaming Textures technology (streaming texture loading).

November 9, 2010 was the release of the seventh part of Call of Duty - Black Ops. This game uses a significantly improved version of the IW engine 3.0 that was used in Call of Duty: World at War, which is likely due to the fact that the development of the game was started in parallel with the creation of Modern Warfare 2. Compared to previous parts of the game, the graphics code was several major improvements have been made, including, among other things, a completely redesigned lighting system and improved particle system performance.

Call of Duty Black Ops

In the same year, GoldenEye 007, the “spiritual successor” to the original 1997 GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64, was released on the Wii console. Eurocom was responsible for the development, and Activision was engaged in publishing. This game, according to some sources, also uses an internal modification of the IW engine (the exact version is unknown).

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

On November 8, 2011, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was released, based on an updated version of the IW 4.0 engine (working title is MW3 Engine); Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software were responsible for development. In October, Glen Schofield, founder of Sledgehammer Games, stated in an interview that the IW engine resembles a Porsche, and that criticisms of the engine made in reviews of Modern Warfare 3 are unfounded, as the developers are constantly modifying and reworking the technology.

Call of Duty Black Ops 2

On May 1, 2012, the ninth game in the series and the 2010 sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, was announced. The game uses an updated version of the IW 3.0 engine used to create the first part of Black Ops. HDR lighting, self-shadowing, bounce lighting and reveal mapping were added to the engine, and the PC version of the game had DirectX 11 support. According to Treyarch, 60 frames per second (FPS) on any platform is a top priority for them. The game was released on November 13, 2012.

Call of Duty: Ghosts was released in 2013. This game was developed by Infinity Ward with the participation of Raven Software and Neversoft Entertainment. At the announcement, the game engine was described by representatives of the publishing house as "completely new", but later the developers clarified that the engine is a development of their own engine - IW 6.0; for example, the studio's animator, Zach Walker, said: “It's impossible to develop a new game engine from scratch in the two-year cycle that our games go through. We act differently - we conduct research and draw conclusions about which systems and main parts of the engine are obsolete and update them, bringing them to the modern level. How much do we update them? I think enough to afford to call this engine new.

SETTINGS

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has a fairly wide range of graphics settings.
