343 Industries Talks Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta
Post by Steve Farrelly @ 09:37am 03/05/10 | 16 Comments
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, or you can watch it streaming embedded below. (Is it just me or does there appear to be a Jacob's Ladder element to this?)

I think he means that there are separate dedicated teams working on the multiplayer, single-player and co-op side of the game, not the game shipping with dedicated multiplayer server support.

if they let enable the console, keep the weapons balanced and make sure there is no chopper gunner killstreak, they may be on to something.

Mr Bumpy, that was me being cheeky, but I have a feeling they'll be utilising DS

Well they did have the AC130A Spooky back then, as well as the AH1 Cobra. Lets not forget either Napalm and Agent Orange . Weapons wise;

M14
M16
XM177 (CAR-15 Commando)
M1 carbine
BAR
M1A1
M1C
M60
M72
M1911 Colt
.22 Hush Puppy
SKS
AK47
RPK
PKM
Mosin-Nagant 1891 PSU
RPG2
various shotguns

to name a few.

Of course there is the ubiquitous claymore, as well as the funky punji. Lets not forget that tks were common including fraging your squad leader. View it as the transitory era where WWII weaponry were phased out for Assault rifles

Yea that was f*****g sneaky, I had to re read it also. Only point of interest was the chopper, seems you are the pilot or they just chopped a part of a cut scene in to get ppl over excited but I can't see a player controlled chopper working in COD.

I won't be buying this, even if it does come with dedicated servers (and I actually mean that; I never bought that terrible MW2 and laughed at all PC gamers who bought it then b****ed about how much multiplayer sucked). If it does come with dedicated servers, it just means that Activision was hit hard enough in sales (compared to what they expected) of the PC version of MW2 that they will finally concede defeat. If that's the case, it shows that no matter what feature their fans are crying out for they won't give it to them until they've released the game and didn't get as many sales as expected. And then they won't patch it into the game, they'll just release a new game with the feature forcing fans to buy another game.

Screw them. It feels immoral to give money to Activision.

actually, the dedicated server issue was never an internal activision decision - it was infinity ward. If treyarch deliver with dedicated servers, it's because they believe in the model. That actually has nothing to do with activision...

Do not want. After MW2 I'll be avoiding this no matter how good it is. I could put up with no dedicated servers but making us pay for maps when other games have had community provided content for free for years? They can bite my shiny metal ass.

Steve, if that really is the case then I'm lost; which side do I go for in the IW vs Activision debate?? On one side there's a team that refuses to listen to it's PC fanbase (as if it is difficult to implement dedicated servers as well as their other crap) and on the other...well it's Activision, it speaks for itself. Maybe I should hope the splitting of one giant evil force into two smaller evil forces will bring them both down...

Ultimately the publisher signed off on the IWnet s***. The buck stops with the publisher.

Go for the side that is going to make games that are worth spending your hard-earned money on! Everything else is just window dressing.
