It’s time to gear up for all-out, high-speed action and epic combat, as the most anticipated game of the year, developer Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be available at retail stores everywhere as of midnight, November 10th. Modern Warfare 2 unleashes a new threat upon the world, putting gamers on the front lines of an epic, global battle that has advanced onto American soil, proving that no one is safe from an impending invasion.

In anticipation of the launch of Modern Warfare 2, Activision, along with GameStop and Microsoft, hosted a major first-to-play event in New York City’s Union Square where hundreds of fans gathered to be among the first-to-play the game before its midnight release and witness a grudge match for the ages, as Philadelphia Phillies star pitcher Cole Hamels guided a Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer team against a squad led by New York Yankees CC Sabathia and Jerry Hairston.

Several celebrity guests along with entertainment and gaming industry VIPs were on-hand to play the game and enjoy music by DJ Jazzy Jeff and DJ Questlove.
