Streaming star Dr Disrespect has hit out at Modern Warfare 2‘s visuals after Infinity Ward gave fans their first look at the Farm 18 multiplayer map.
Modern Warfare 2 is set to arrive very soon and players have been desperate for any glimpse of what Infinity Ward has in store for them. After the single-player campaign was shown off back in June, attention has unsurprisingly turned to multiplayer.
Ahead of the planned multiplayer reveal in September, the devs have begun teasing a couple of Modern Warfare 2’s maps. First up, we got a look at Marina Bay Grand Prix, followed soon after by Farm 18.
However, not everyone was as excited by the teasers, with YouTube Gaming star Dr Disrespect calling out Modern Warfare 2’s graphics.
During a recent stream, Dr Disrespect watched the Farm 18 developer breakdown, which featured the first small glimpse of multiplayer gameplay as they explored the map.
Doc was clearly unimpressed by what he saw, only breaking his silence to shout “oh god,” before pausing to highlight some grass poking out from the concrete and letting out a smile.
“Boy that engine’s on its f*****g last legs, holy s**t,” he said while looking at a wider shot of the map, explaining that he feels sorry for the developers and what they have to work with.
“There’s too much talent between the three, four studios that they’re throwing at this game now, every single year. 3-400 people working on this game, a lot of them just super talented devs. It’s just a shame they have to work on this engine.”
Doc even questioned whether or not his PC was on the correct settings: “I gotta do something here, I mean am I in HD?” The streamer then went back to compare the visuals of Modern Warfare 2 to the original Modern Warfare, released in 2007. “I mean that was what, 18 years ago?” he joked.
Later in the dev breakdown, Infinity Ward showed a behind-the-scenes image of the engine in action. “Look at how old that thing is, that’s exactly what we worked with,” Doc explained, referring to his time as a level designer on 2014’s Advanced Warfare.
Although Dr Disrespect is clearly unimpressed with Modern Warfare 2’s graphics, hopefully, the game delivers on the gameplay front when it releases in November.
