It’s official. The new Call of Duty is the second installment of the 2010 Black Ops.
Treyarch and Activision has revealed Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. The game will be set in 2025 where a high tech cold war has emerged between China and the United States. Modern technology will play a huge role in the game as war assets include robots, unmanned vehicles and mechs. Cyberwarfare is also another arena for this 21st century war.
The story is deeply rooted with the previous Black Ops game, with the protagonist being the son of Alex Mason (protagonist of the 1st Black Ops), David Mason. The story travels from the previous Black Ops setting, the Cold War in 1980, then all the way to 2025. It will be the first COD game that features a branching storylines where the player’s actions and decisions have the possibility to affect the current mission and, ultimately, the main story itself.
Perhaps the part of the game making as much buzz as the game itself is its Zombie Mode, and yes, the developers has confirmed that Black Ops 2 will indeed feature the Zombie Mode.
Treyarch boss Mark Lamia has dropped the clue that they have “something special” in store for the feature, saying it is their “biggest, most ambitious zombie effort ever.” One of the things that piques the interest of fans is the fact that Treyarch Sound Designer for Zombies Collin Ayers has shown interest on what gamers wish to see in the next Zombie Mode.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be released on November 2012 for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. More details to see here.
