Call Of Duty: Black Ops Unveiled, Set For November 9

Did you catch the unveiling of Call of Duty: Black Ops on G4TV tonight? If not, you should probably check out this complete breakdown.

As part of "what we know so far," we know it'll be set in Vietnam, which is guaranteed to prompt some discussion all on its own. The question is whether or not it will raise the ire of the more sensitive types who don't believe the Vietnam War should be made into entertainment. Beyond that, we know it'll have a licensed soundtrack (probably a good plan, considering the highly recognizable music from that era), there will be more than one conflict within the game (Americans aren't the only option, it seems), and oh yeah, it'll have a Zombie Mode...just because, damnit. Then there's talk of a hostage rescue stage, the weapons should be really sweet, Treyarch is indeed handling all the development duties, the multiplayer experience will be enhanced, and there will be a co-op mode for you and your buddies. Need to know anything else? Will that suffice for now? I know we don't have a heck of a lot of CoD fans around here but even so, you have to admit it's a pretty darn good franchise.  And the launch date- November 9.

And this game is going to get plenty of attention, like it or not. Besides, we think Treyarch is a darn good developer - World at War was fantastic - so we have faith in them. For more info, visit the official Black Ops website.

I'm not a fan of the cod series but I did enjoy co op and zombie mode in cod waw so I'll give this game a shot (used on sale ofcourse)

It may just be me but with the lack of co op games lately (shooters in general), I'll take what I can get.

Co op was really good in WAW, but now all of my friends have it so it'll be a blast, and zombies too. hopefully they tweak the difficulty a bit, cause once you hit lvl 20 or so it's ridiculous

CO-OP!!!!!! Awesome. This mode was sadly missing from MW2, as was any kind of story. I am so glad that Treyarch is back on duty.


Hellz Yeah!!!!!

Well, as expected, the Zombie mode is back, but darn, there are so many other FPS games coming out. It will be FPS FEST city toward the second half of this year. Red Dead Redemption is my target game for May.

Sure the developers will improve upon WaW, but playing the single player campaign of Bad Company 2 last night, they will have quite a bit to do in my opinion to make it better.

The other question is, will CoD7 - Black Ops have destructible environments? I think this would make a big difference. My hunch is no.

Q!

im sorry world but i disagree with your comment. I usually dont, mind you.

IW and activision want to push COD out the door. Treyarch started the franchise and COD was built on what they made it! All the COD games including W@W had fantastic compaigns except MW, and MW2. I do think MW was good but not up to level with prior COD games or W@W. So the hate for MW and FPS shouldnt represent in the case of the franchise. Treyarch knows how to develop a game and they have always made a great FPS.

Vietnam could be fun. There seems to be a HUGE line-up forming for next fall, though. It's going to get pricey.

Just thinking of how awesome a Full Metal Jacket game could be.

Treyarch just jumped into the MP after IW made MW so big. Although Treyarch succeeded w/ the MP in W@W, they are not IW and are still a great developer trying to brgin back the franchise as it once was, in my opinion. This game will be heavily story oriented just like all COD' have been excluding MW and MW2.

Fuh the bull...COD has been an entertaining series since MOH fell off in the transition to the PS3. The online can drive me crazy, but I've had a blast playing (and converting some friends to the 3 to join in on the fun). For some folks, I think COD is like when their favorite group inadvertently becomes a pop sensation, no fault of their own, and you start to not enjoy them as much as you used to because now everyone thinks they are the best.

Treyarch was the weak link in the CoD franchise. Now they're the only link. Kinda sucks. I'm sure the game will be alright, but it's just not the same as the excellent MW games.

In what way did Treyarch build CoD? LOL You got your facts all messed up.

Infinity Ward murdered the MoH series with CoD. Treyarch only showed up years later to help make the series a yearly event.

Alienange-

I wasnt trying to argue... anyways, i was just saying its weird your upset with Treyarch in all this.

Anyways COD:Finest Hour for the xbox, PS2 and gamecube was developed by spark unlimited, COD: The Big Red One (PS2, xbox, and GC) was though developed by Treyarch. Call of Duty 3 was also developed by Treyarch. Thos are the ones im referring to, not Call of Duty for the PC and now available on the PSN and XBLA, or COD 2 released on pc or the 360. Im referring to the games i could play, since ive never owned a 360 and since ive had consoles i havnt bought too many pc games. IW may have started it with COD on the PC but Treyacrh is definiately finishing it and as i said if treyarch is developing it ill prolly still invest in it.

besides COD 3 which i can say i havnt played, i enjoyed Treyarchs campaigns better, thats all im saying. Which is what most people complain about is IW developed games around the MP, and that there was no campaign.

I'm sure you dont need me to explain that to you so sorry. anyways im referring to the games ive experienced and its 3 for 3 for both IW and Treyarch, and to me, just my opinion Treyarch made it. IW had great MP in MW and Treyarch has always built great campaigns.

It made me sad when Konami backed out of publishing that game. The developers worked really hard with a lot of Soldiers who spent time over there, it would be nice to hear their side of the story instead of the narrative played out in the media. I hope that game sees store shelves and soon.

Isn't it pretty much done and ready to be released now? they just need a publisher?

yeah its 100% done there just looking for a publisher.
really sad that such a good looking game is may not be released just because of the freaking media.
its pathetic how much power over things those people have!
i understand its a sensitive topic, but for fu*ks sake if its ok with the soldiers, the people who were most effected by it, the people who saw their best friends killed in front of them.
if its ok by them, than back the f*ck down and let them release it!

oh well, i guess breach will have to do :(
i dont see how they could release it online, its a whole game it would be freaking massive!

Burnout Paradise, is a whole game, GT5 prologue, and Socom Confrontation are full games, I guess i should mention DA:O Awakening is also a pretty big game for an expansion and they are all downloadable. I dont see it being that big of a deal.

Id personally rather them be able to release it since they developed it and if via download would b the only way, do it!

yes but there all also on disks no?
and GT5 prologue is not even close to a full game, a 50 buck demo is what it is!
point being if they release it via download only than there cutting their sales by more than 60%.
obviously there better off doing that than not releasing it at all, but surely they can find a publisher to distribute it to stores.

New zombie mode would be all I need to know, but even without it I'm still looking forward to it and am about 100% sure it will be better than MW2, which if it were a living being would probably sustain it's self entirely on testicle sweat because it's so ghey.

The tides have turned, imo. Used to be IW was the one to watch/look forward to and the Treyarch titles were "just to hold ya over" fillers. Not anymore, imo.
