Images of Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer and rumored unannounced mode DMZ have surfaced online and Pokemon Scarlet and Violet get a new trailer and more details.
A kicker for the LA Rams, shared an image of the Modern Warfare 2 menu on Instagram Stories and captioned the image, “Having fun on the new Call of Duty.” Another player posted a slightly blurry photo, saying they were previewing the unreleased game, but the image still clearly says “DMZ” in the top right-hand corner of the screen.The images have since been deleted, but sites like CharlieIntel and ModernWarzone were quick to capture and tweet out their existence. Call of Duty insiders have long suggested the existence of DMZ, which is said to be Modern Warfare 2’s extraction-based mode inspired by Escape from Tarkov. The leaks describe DMZ as an open-world mode with a mix of battle royale and survival game elements, and the mode has reportedly been in development for four years.
Today the Pokemon Company revealed more details about its November games, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The game takes place in the Paldea region, which players will travel across using the two legendary Pokemon Koraidon and Miraidon. The new trailer also shows off how versatile the new legendaries are; both can be used for travel by air, land and sea. The story centers on a Pokemon academy, where the main character is a student who sets out to explore the world.
But that’s not all, because we also learned about Scarlet and Violet’s new gameplay mechanic, Terastallize, which transforms a pocket monster into a crystal version of itself with boosted stats. Each Pokemon in the Paldea region gets a unique gem-like look when subjected to Terastallizing, and some Pokemon will change type as well. According to the Pokemon Company, there are 18 types that form a wide number of combinations of Pokemon and Tera Types, and players can Terastallize a Pokemon once per battle.
