8 comments by PlayerHOI on Apr 20th, 2014

Hi everyone, this dev diary will talk about the bookmarks that will be introduced in beta 4.

Modern Warfare is set to be played between the year 2000 all the way to 2020. Since its initial development a lot has happened and the recent events in the Arab world will be represented in the mod. Let's take a look at the bookmarks that will feature in the mod and recap what exactly happened at that particular date.

Please note that in Beta 4 only the first bookmark will be focused on, later versions of the mod will focus on future bookmarks, do not expect to be able to fight the Syrian civil war with beta 4.

01.01.2000 -Y2K
This is the first bookmark of the mod starting in the year 2000 after the Y2K disaster, can you survive the computer driven chaos the world is about to be plunged into?

7.10.2001 - War On Terror

The war on terror began with the invasion of Afghanistan and continued until today. While the initial goal of the invasion was the capture of Osama Bin Laden the goal was later expanded to the establishment of a democratic state in Afghanistan with the removal of the Taliban regime. At the beginning of the game Afghanistan is divided between the Islamic state of Afghanistan (aka The Northern Alliance)  and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (The Taliban).

19.03.2003 - Invasion of Iraq

The invasion of Iraq began on the 19th of March with coalition forces bombing runs in Baghdad and later a ground assault. The Iraq war was initiated with a stern insistence by the US president George W Bush that Iraq had developed weapons of mass destruction and thus posed a threat to the world. Despite the evidence provided by the US many Nato countries did not rush to join this war due to some serious doubt regarding these allegations. After the conquest Iraq you will have the option to form a new democratic state in Iraq.

07.08.2008 - South Ossetia War

The South Ossetia War was an armed conflict in August 2008 between Georgia on one side, and Russia and the separatist South Ossetia and Abkhazia on the other. The fighting started after a shelling of Georgian villages by the South Ossetian sepratists. After a swift responce by the Georgian army Russia intervened to help its ally South Ossetia.

18.09.2010 - The Arab Spring
While the Arab Spring is not a military conflict this bookmark is meant to jump start the players to the events that led to the overthrow of leaders across the Arab countries and especially in Tunisia where the Arab spring began with the self-immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi. The events were followed by the mass demonstrations that led to the downfall of Husni Mubarak the Egyptian president and later Muammar Gaddafi in Libya.

15.03.2011 - Syrian Civil War
The Syrian civil war began with peaceful demonstrations following the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt. The protesters were met with an aggressive response from the regime led by president Bashar Al Assad. The conflict rages on until today with a long stalemate between government forces and various rebel groups.
These are the bookmarks to be featured in the mod, future updates to the mod will enhance each bookmark until all of them are playable.

It would be pretty hilarious to see what would happen if China had put troops into Afghanistan at the same time as the U.S.A did.

I'm really excited for this mod. It looks like it will be great especially with the brand new map. Order of battles look like they may take a while though :( My question is will the Arab Spring wars be in the game, or an India/Pakistan war, 3rd Sino-Japanese war, 2nd Korean war be scenarios?

Well the Arab Spring is planned to be in the mod but it will take a while until we get there. There is plenty of stuff that happened before that...

That is a good idea, a crafty Russia could do serious damage to an unprepared Europe, especially if it can be done before the Euro heavy weights can mobilize and before US troops can arrive. China has a tougher task seeing as Free-Oceania/Asia is nothing but one big heavily militarized anti-China armed camp.
