Third-person confirmed for MW2
Private matches only.
Infinity Ward has said that Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer supports third-person view in private matches.
Following the release of a leaked video on YouTube, community man Robert Bowling told Joystiq that it was "just another cool way to play the game".
"You obviously will still have the option to play gametypes normal as well," he added.
Private matches supporting third-person mode will be labelled as such in-game, so you should have no trouble working it all out.
Modern Warfare 2 is due out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on 10th November. Check out our recent hands-on to see what we make of it.
