Activision and Treyarch officially unveiled the next iteration of Call of Duty over the weekend, revealing Call of Duty: Black Ops; a post-WWII game that would instead focus on the Vietnam conflict as its base of player operations, the first time the series has shifted its historical foundations beyond the second World War (obviously excluding Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2).
"We have focused our entire studio on this game," Treyarch boss Mark Lamia said in a statement. "With dedicated
multiplayer, single-player and co-op teams creating the most intense, gripping and riveting experience possible for our fans on all fronts."
The GAME UK website also lists a description of the title, revealing that you will "witness the birth of the Elite Special Forces and take part in off-the-record missions using unconventional weaponry to get the job done! From Cuba to the Arctic and the jungles of Vietnam, Call of Duty: Black Ops features stunning cinematic graphics and intense gameplay that puts you right at the heart of the action".
Call of Duty: Black Ops is due to release on the 9th of November this year. We have the trailer available for download right here
