Modern Warfare 2 Offers Split Difficulty for Co-Op, New Screens and System Requirements

Like Gears of War 2 and HAWX before it, Modern Warfare 2 will allow players to each choose their own respective difficulty in the game's co-op mode.  Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling announced the feature via his Twitter account.  

"Awesome #MW2 feature I've fallen in love with while on tour," said Bowling,  "[The] ability to play on a different difficulty than your coop partner in SpecOps."  This should be good news for co-op players as it allows a lot of flexibility when looking for partners to play with.  

The PC minimum system requirements have been released for Modern Warfare 2 as well, and you might want to dust off that video card and processor.

System Requirements

OS: Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 (Windows 95/98/ME/2000 are unsupported)
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 3.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 3200+ processor or better supported
Memory: 1 GB RAM
Graphics: 256 MB NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT or better or ATI Radeon 1600XT or better
DirectX: Microsoft DirectX(R) 9.0c
Hard Drive: 12GB of free hard drive space
Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card

 It's not anything major, but remember that it's the minimum required.  If you want the game to look like the new screenshots we just got our hands on, well, you might want to hit up Newegg.com.

Modern Warfare 2 comes out on November 10th on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.  If you haven't pre-ordered already, you should check out the Amazon.com deal to get $20 in credit.
