Modern Warfare 2 rated 18 by BBFC

First title in the franchise to receive adult rating in the UK

The British Board of Film Classification has given Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 an 18 certificate in the UK.

The latest in the series is the first in the franchise to get an adults only rating, ahead of its release in the region on November 10.

Activision is rolling out a huge marketing campaign, and there are expectations the game will be one of the biggest releases of this generation.

The premium-priced game will hit retail in a number of different SKUs, from the basic £54.99 box to the Prestige Edition which ships with a pair of night vision goggles for £119.99.
