Everyone who is familiar with the Call of Duty franchise could have smelled Black Ops 2 coming all the way from 2010. Nevertheless, the speculations are true and first of the gameplay footages are upon us. It is definitely a Black Ops affair. The game takes place in the not-so-distant future, where men are fighting machines. Of course, there will always be a need for grunts in the field to take care of business like no machine can. This time you will have new guns, new personal equipment and new vehicles to man. Placing the setting in the future is definitely a gamble for the franchise, as they have had tremendous success placing the setting in the modern era for a few years now. Perhaps a much needed gamble, as the genre is definitely getting a lot of new additions, all coming in the way of modern combat.
There are a lot of things to consider and look forward to with Black Ops 2. The story of Black Ops was one of the highlights, placing you square in the midst of cold-war conspiracy and dark secrets of war. The online competitive mode was also a massive success, improving upon the previous CoD tittles and adding a few new features. It was truly the peak of new-generation CoD titles, providing lots of playback value and a triple-A campaign.
The greatest anticipation this year is in the competitive online aspect of the game. Previously only tweaked and improved upon, it seems like the old playbook has been replaced with something new. There will definitely be more vertical battles, unexpected headshots and hopefully more destruction. Without a doubt, love it or hate it, this is one game you’ll be hearing a lot about this year.
