It's time to get ready for the next Black Ops and fans couldn't be more happy. This time the series is making a leap into the future to give us a glimpse of the wars fought tomorrow.
The sequel to the blockbuster hit Call of Duty: Black Ops is on it's way just in time for Christmas. Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the upcoming first-person shooter set in a near futuristic warfare type setting, which is a bit different from Black Ops cold war setting. But this time there's a new cold war between the US and China, and no one wants to see this happen more, then the fans.
The game begins sometime during the 80s in the Cold War era (Setting during Black Ops), and sets up the storyline of a chain of events that lock the United States and China in war. The game quickly progresses to the year 2025, Raul Menendez (primary antagonist), provokes a war between China and the USA after a cyber-attack shuts down the Chinese Stock Exchange. This leads to China banning the export of rare elements and goods to the United States. Now it's up to protagonists (The Player), Alex Mason and son David Mason to fight between two different eras in time to bring down Menendez.
The game will play much like other games in the Call of Duty series, and it will have single player, co-op and multiplayer modes. The warfare is in a futuristic setting including unmanned assault vehicles, ground robots, remote attacks and other future warfare technology. Black Ops II will be the first game in the series to feature branching storylines, certain actions by the player effect the outcome of both the missions and the over all story, giving the game even more replay value which is always a plus.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the ninth game in the Call of Duty franchise and is expected to hit retail in November of this year, developed by Treyarch and published by Activision. It will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the PC. Prepare to gear up and fight the future of war in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
Of course the Zombie Mode will be returning and lots of new features can be expected, aim for the head.
