Now Playing: Campaign Early Access | Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II

There have been weed camos and other content themed around the special herb in Call of Duty for years--including the Stoner's Delight pack for Warzone--so it's no surprise to see the leafy tradition continue with Modern Warfare II.

Elsewhere, the ESRB's description for Modern Warfare II confirms the game will contain the usual explosions and blood-spatter effects. There will also be sequences set in a red-light district featuring signs that reference "lingerie, aphrodisiacs, and fetish/S&M costumes."

Modern Warfare II's campaign will also have an interrogation scene involving a soldier tied to a chair, the ESRB description says. The game has been rated M for Mature, which is no surprise given the series has historically been rated M.

Modern Warfare II launches on October 28, but everyone who preorders can start the campaign a week early. The game's multiplayer beta kicks off in September.
