Now Playing: Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Video Review

As announced previously, raids are coming to Modern Warfare II on December 14 with the start of Season 1 Reloaded. Raids will seemingly exist within Spec Ops. A blog post from earlier in October states that on December 14, "Special Ops receives the very first episode of raids for Operators to master."

Raids in Modern Warfare II are described as a "whole new experience" for Call of Duty. They take the form of a three-player co-op "engagement" that Activision says will require "teamwork and strategic puzzle-solving" in between intense firefights.

Raids are known to be exciting and challenging in other games that have them, like Bungie's Destiny 2. As mentioned, the Call of Duty series has never had raids, so it'll be interesting to see how they are implemented.

While fans have to wait until December for raids, Modern Warfare II's full release--covering campaign and multiplayer--is set for October 28.
