GMC electrified the Hummer in 2020, offering it in pickup trick and SUV flavors. Based on the in-house Ultium Drive platform with Ultium batteries providing the juice, the car made a bold statement with a 1,000 horsepower yield and impressive off-roading claims. The segment-exclusive CrabWalk feature, which allows diagonal movement, also grabbed eyeballs. In his first drive of the 2022 Hummer EV, SlashGear’s Chris Davies called it an “expression of unmitigated excess” that is also “a bombastic showcase for just what the electric platform can do.” It appears that the public interest in the massive EV is also quite strong. Rich Latek, GMC’s Marketing Director, told Autoblog that the company has clocked over 90,000 reservations for the Hummer EV and that things are only picking up pace.
As for the game that will soon host the electrified Hummer, it is also hotly anticipated. “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” brings new water-based combat to the table, allowing players to either use water bodies as cover or simply as a way of stealthily escaping from enemies. Players will also be able to fire underwater with proper physics at play. Tactical weapon upgrades are also in the pipeline and three new modes dubbed Knockout, Prisoner Rescue, and Invasion will greet players this time around.
