It seems players might be visiting a real-life location during Modern Warfare 2’s campaign after a viewer noticed a familiar sight in the early access reveal trailer.

Modern Warfare 2 hype is beginning to heat up after official dates for the start of the multiplayer beta have been revealed. Fans of Call of Duty’s campaign mode also have a lot to look forward to, especially with Modern Warfare 2’s early access period available to players.

The campaign early access reveal trailer highlighted a ton of new information concerning characters, weapons, and the missions set to be involved, but it also showcased a real-life location that players could be heading to in Modern Warfare 2.

Infinity Ward gave players plenty of glimpses at the sights and sounds they’ll be able to visit during the Modern Warfare 2 campaign. While players were excited to discover that they’ll be able to play the campaign for a full week before Modern Warfare 2’s October 28 release date, they also noticed some familiar locations.

One viewer took to the Modern Warfare 2 subreddit to share that they noticed one mission could take place in Chicago. As the OP puts it, they’re from the Chicago area and they’re “happy to see” their “city get some representation.”

It turns out the Two Prudential Plaz building seen in the image above is what gave away the mission’s location.

Some players were already expecting Chicago to be a campaign location, but were happy that this practically confirms it: “Early promotional material showed a map of downtown Chicago, so it’s all but confirmed.”

In hilarious fashion, one comment actually claims that they could see the Chicago building they work in and admitted that the devs’ depiction is excellent:

“I immediately knew it was Chicago because I saw the office building I work in lol. They completely nailed it too. My building and the surrounding buildings around it are all accurate too. Good job Infinity Ward.”

Keep your eyes peeled for more Modern Warfare 2 news to be revealed at the Call of Duty Next event on September 15.
