Black Ops II Game Director Hands Out More Multiplayer Details

Of course, multiplayer is the focal point of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Therefore, you'll probably want as many details as humanly possible.

Thankfully, game director David Vonderhaar hasn't been shy about delivering a bunch of new info via his Twitter page. If you want a full summary of all the tidbits he let drop, head over to Gameranx; here are a few of the highlights:

  • Black Ops 2 will now have Global Stats leaderboards
  • Playlists are no longer gated by levels
  • Music volume can now be adjusted
  • You cannot have two of the same Scorestreak Rewards unless one is from a Care Package
  • Players can set one of the game modes to launch on default (Campaign, Zombie Mode, Multiplayer).
  • Black Ops 2 will ship with 14 multiplayer maps (15 if you count the pre-order bonus Nuketown 2025)
  • You don't need to be in a party to enter League Play matches
  • Players can make and store multiple emblems and then "apply" the one you prefer -- a fan-requested feature that's now a reality

If you've been out of it for a while, you might not know that the biggest game of the year is coming out on November 13. However, for those who don't have any interest in multiplayer, I say do something to thumb your nose at this new mega-trend; I say start up a new game of some old, story-driven RPG or something. Yes. That's what I say.

You know i'm not a cod fan by default. I prefer Battlefield series, but this game just sounds fun. I have played past call of duty entries and have very fond memories of it. I just kind of lost interest in it for a while. I don't like the modern warfare series at all, still... Treyarch just makes a better game than IW imo. I think i'm going to bite the bullet and get this. some of the new features and the new campaign actually sound pretty awesome.

Me too, I ain't so much like the run and gun mechanics after COD 3 (multiplayer).

I'm a little jealous of the Cod fans, I don't have a big game to be excited about. It sure is fun to get hyped up.

That's too steep an access fee for a guy who doesn't play MP.
