When we told you to stay tuned for more Call of Duty: Black Ops II details today, we weren't just referring to Activision's NBA Playoffs ads. AusGamers was privy to an advanced reveal of the game in Los Angeles recently and chat with the developers about their ambitions this time around.

We touch on the thought processes behind the game's cold war and near-future 2025 setting, Call of Duty's cinematic scope, potential licensed soundtrack options, the new sandbox strikeforce mode, zombies and much more.
