Call of Duty: Black Ops is a first-person shooter with stealth and tactical play aspect that puts players in the role of a shadow soldier fighting in a variety of historically representative fictional Black Ops missions of the Cold War era. Created with the input of actual Black Ops soldiers from the time, the game mixes traditional Call of Duty tactical shooter gameplay with new gameplay options designed to expand the players’ experience. Additional features include extensive multiplayer options, along with new vehicles and explosive new weapons.
A few weeks ago, Call of Duty Black Ops released a multiplayer video that had the internet buzzing. I mean, if you like the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer mode then the new Black Ops multiplayer is said to be even better. The Call of Duty Black Ops multiplayer reveal event happens today — two months ahead of the game’s release date which is set for November 9th (for PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii). It was more than we ever expected for a game in the Call of Duty franchise, even better than Modern Warfare 2, so it had to be said, we got excited.
The Call of Duty Black Ops multiplayer release event finished today and Treyarch and Activision both make the announcements. Treyarch is diving into the social media and networking scene as they will allow gamers to take screenshots as well as record videos from multiplayer matches.
Other things that will help Black Ops become an even bigger success than Modern Warefare 2 is the fact that the game now features a ballistic knife weapon that allows players to throw blades at enemies quickly and easily; features a radio-controlled RC car strapped with explosives which will allow you to attack unsuspecting enemies; a Camera Spike that allows players to keep some areas under surveillance; and when a 5 Kill Streak is reached, you can get hold of a controllable missile, which unleashes massive destruction on the battlefield.
Inspired by the experiences of real Black Ops soldiers of the era, the missions of Call of Duty: Black Ops take the player to a wide variety of settings, ranging from snowbound mountain strongholds in historical Soviet held territories, to the jungles and urban settings of Vietnam War era SE Asia. Throughout all, care has been taken to maintain the traditional essence of Call of Duty style combat, while also introducing new types of player action that add to the gameplay experience. Additional features include co-op, versus and team-based multiplayer options, new vehicles like the SR-71 Blackbird and lethal new weapons such as explosive-tipped crossbows.
