Black Ops Multiplayer Gameplay Debuts And Impresses

If there's one thing the Call of Duty franchise thrives on, it's multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is arguably the most popular multiplayer game in history and there's no doubt that millions will also sample the upcoming Black Ops online. As Treyarch is at the helm for this one, and the single-player campaign for Call of Duty: World at War was appropriately lengthy, we're hoping Black Ops will also be able to deliver on both fronts. But for now, the focus remains squarely on the multiplayer, 'cuz an all-new look at the gameplay has arrived.

Looks pretty good, doesn't it? This year, it'll be tough to beat Battlefield: Bad Company 2 in the multiplayer category, and Medal of Honor looks to be a winner, too. But if there's one title that should deliver the online goods in spades, it's right here. We're wondering what percentage of new Black Ops owners will actually play the campaign before jumping online...

not only looking for bombs, they have now developed a remote control robot that can fire any weapon a human can!
comes with 4 cameras built in, hooked via optics.
not bad, not bad at all and its actually easier to use than a normal gun because the robot controls the backfire so you get less recoil.
this things suppose to be more accurate on full auto, than a fully trained soldier!
impressive!

I still think this multiplayer could be replicated on the original modern warfare with just a patch. Correct me if i'm wrong but new interface, maps, weapons and kill streaks could just be transfered digitally correct? It's the same bloody game imo.

Still looks like MW2 to me. Let me guess; they are still using MW's engine. I still haven't found a legitimate reason to spend 60 bucks on this. I am not impressed; maybe because I am looking for an entirely different gameplay. However, I know I won't find much innovativeness in COD anymore.
What these developers need to understand is that once a series is being milked, gameplay then needs to be more innovative and flexible because it gets old pretty fast. They are still using the same formula that they used for COD4, WAW, and MW2. I as a consumer would rather spend my money on something more interesting like Infamous 2 or LBP2. Personally, I don't think the developers care because, at the end of the day, millions of people will still buy their product. I loved COD4 because it did something innovative. It brought in a newer and better interface than its predecessors. It also redefined online play. So far, in my opinion, MW2 hasn't done that; WAW hasn't done that; and this doesn't appear to be doing that.
Activision won't be getting my money this holiday; not because I dislike the way they conduct their businesses, but because their games are becoming like the Madden series to me- same formula for every game, little addendums to new games, and a lot of hype. When they do something like COD4 again, then I will be interested in buying their games.

THe formula is the same the game is different. If i Keep playing MW2 then the storyline would get a little boring dont you think?
Also I like new maps for multi player. When you find a sweet sniping spot its really rewarding. You also got new killstreaks and guns to try out. Perks will be different so you can try different setups!!
All in all there will be enough differences to warrant a purchase.

I'd have to disagree, I'm pretty sure Counter-Strike would probably be the most popular FPS multiplayer game ever. But I dunno, I've bought every COD, sold some back kept some, it's generally a hit or miss with me depending on the feel, and the only reason I'd buy this game is for the single-player short campaign, I want to try out some vietnam warfare

I doubt it will be short. Treyarch isn't IW. The campaign in W@W was pretty lengthy. On veteran I think it took me upwards towards 10-12 hours, i dont remember. Yeah its not real long but for an FPS thats pretty good!

yeah, I haven't really checked the numbers lately, or really done too much looking into it's just that I seem to hear more about Counter-strike then people playing MW2, I dunno, maybe it's an attachment rate of CS is higher, becuz MW2 gets old quick, and as long as someone plays it one time, it counts a +1 i'm guessing

But I will definitely be checking out the campaign in both first. But I always played MOH for the campaign and COD for the MP. Except W@W that campaign was awesome!

lets be honest here, if you were to show this same footage without any announcements about it being black ops, most if not all would think it was a previous entry into the series, particularly mw2 or some new expansion for mw2.

I'm still yet to be convinced that this will be an immediate "must-have" come it's release date (though if Sainsbury's do it for £26 like they did for MW2, then goddamn them i MAY have to pick it up).

Graphics-wise (imo) it's nothing great (I know, if it ain't broke...), and they've kept the on-screen types of kills (a la MW2) which was an aspect that didn't gel with me (too arcadey), whereas MW just seemed cleaner.

I'll probably get thumbed-down for speaking against the game, but each to their own...

Hopefully BFBC's Vietnam pack (and free to owners that bought the game), while it probably won't be better than Black Ops, will at least hold it's own against it.

"If it ain't broke then make it better.

Very true, fair enough. I just think that MW2 was a step back from MW and this doesn't really look that much different.

After reading the "10/10"'s and "96%" from magazines, instead of getting caught up in the hype I'm gonna reserve judgment on this myself. I expect the online will be good, but since MW2 and the number of faults/patches that followed (not sure if they still do though), I'm not that excited about this release.

You know what I see.

Take black ops, moh, mw2, bc2, and any other current shooter I'm forgetting, remove the hud from all of them, I doubt anyone would notice much of a difference at all.

I want someone with some good video editing equipment to make a video like this one, but using clips from all of them, minus the HUD and I bet no one would know they weren't all the same game.

For all you fps nuts, congrats you'll have plenty to do, now where are me some role playing games.

BFBC2 has maps that are easily 10 times bigger than the maps in COD (which significantly enhances the strategy employed to win, its not just spray and pray). If you don't see that then your two eyes might be suffering from astigmatism...or you just have a myopic view of the world.

Although, I can definitely understand how it would be frustrating to be a fan of rpg's and see nothing but shooters coming out. If you never play them then you probably can't really see the differences.

@kraygen

i can point out the differences between BFBC2 and MW2 without a doubt if someone made a video with no HUD and many others can. In fact, the only ones that would be hard to point out would be CoD games. Its not that hard since the games differ greatly and not just exploding walls either

Hate on fps games if you want, but your statement got thumbs down for good reasons. If one can't spot the differences between CoD, BFBC2, KZ2, MAG, Halo, Crysis, then you need some glasses. Your statement makes as much since as me saying all rpgs are graphically identical.... let that sink in

If they all looked graphically the same ( which is an ignorant statement because truly they don't ) KZ2 wouldn't have gotten all the buzz for being one of the best looking console games at the time of its release.

Its fine if fps games aren't your fave but try to come correct next time. If you want to blame someone for the lack of rpgs, look at the devs who primarily make them, plenty of room on the market for them

Alright I will admit I did say any other current shooter and that was actually a bit of mistyping on my part. I meant modern, as in not futuristic like halo, kz2, and the like.

I'm talking about all these games coming out right now and I'm not saying they don't have any differences, I'm saying graphically they are all the same. Guns look the same, maps look the same, environments are identical.

Bad company might have bigger maps, but that doesn't change the fact that for the most part they are graphically identical.

Here's several videos of different games, look at the guns, the environment, the soldiers, textures, colors. They are all incredibly identical.

I will reiterate that I don't think the games are exactly the same in every aspect, similar yes. You could easily tho take bits and pieces from each of these video's and combine them without the huds and it would take a very trained eye to spot the differences.

I'm not the biggest fan of MW2, esp the multiplayer, but I've bought all the CoD's with the understanding that it's popcorn fun entertainment. I actually enjoyed the footage of Black OP's there. It does look a lot, I guess, like MW2. But what was wrong with MW2 wasn't what it looked like imo, it was the gameplay that I really wasn't enjoying.
I'm willing to give Treyarch the benefit of the doubt on this one. They've got the benefit of the last year to realise the downsides of MW2 and to fine tune this game.
I'm still not sure yet that I'm getting this game but if I do, I'm sure it'll be fun, to me it looks like fun. The single player is more important to me anyway, so if they nail that, I'll be happy.

Treyarch should try and do their own thing instead of stealing ideas from IW. It was only kind of obvious they looked to MW when making W@W, now its painfully obvious they copied MW2 for Black Ops.

There's good camping and bad camping, though. Bad campers sit in one specific spot and wait. Good campers take at least 1 other teammate holding a position while rotating within the space owned.

cant wait for the trailer in september!! This game is gonna be awesome. I would consider trading MW2 for it but i like to keep them as a sorta collectors type thing. (never know when you wanna play them again).

This looks okay, but I'm a little cautious about the whole thing because it's a very similar feeling to when I saw trailers to MW2. Multiplayer looked awesome on the videos then too.

But here's the problem: These videos do not even remotely address what are the most major problems with the online experience.

I understand it's hard to have dedicated servers with no way to offset costs, however, they need to do a much better job of how the multiplayer handles the hosting and migration. Why it randomly allows players with terrible ping to host is beyond me. Similarly, it fails out far too often during migration.

The multiplayer lag issues are so bad that you are forced to endure it every single time you play. I just don't understand why it can't quickly evaluate hosts before a game starts. Why it has to basically fail completely before migration is beyond me. It wouldn't be difficult for them to program that, either. To me it just seems like laziness.

I don't really have any historical background to give me any interest in the Vietnam War. Since I'm not a huge FPS fan, I only appreciate single players if I have an already invested interest in the story. Other than that, I get them for the multiplayer. So really, unless they tighten up the reliability of the online experience, I won't be getting it. I just can't handle all the host migrations and poor ping.

I mean really, they shouldn't allow a host to just back out. Too often, people do that just to screw the winning team over.

Gotta admit, it looked sweet. Especially the melee. Off Sub: I submit, there is no better melee weapon than the drill in bioshock!

I think the MP looks good but I wish they would put more effort in the SP and split screen. Find a way to give me full screen from split screen. I hope is has a better story structure than that piece of crap campaign of MW2.

Battlefield is way more intriguing to me. DICE knows whats up.

Looks like a dreamcast game compared to KZ3.

Since this trailer is for multi-=player, it doesn't do anything to phase me.
And I'm still more interested in the upcoming MOH than this one.

BTW, speaking of the upcoming MOH......

Looks good to me. Seems like there is too much possibility for camping (that RC car is going to be terribly annoying) and I'm not a fan of some of the newer weapons displayed. But I must say I will be glad to jump in conquer the campaign and go ahead and rank up to general a few times :)
