We once again got the right name for an upcoming game before it's official announcement. Black Ops 2 will be the next game in the Call of Duty franchise. But as not many would have expected the game will be set somewhere in the future, around the year 2025 mainly in Los Angeles as presented in the trailer.
A little bit about the Black Ops 2 Trailer
The guy that talks in the video is an older version of the main character in Black Ops I, Woods. And as he says: 'They always need man like us ... those willing to do what others cannot.'
So we may control the same character as in Black Ops I. Most of the comments around internet are about the time when the game is set. Is strange to make a sequel that happenes decades later. It's odd to play the first Black Ops set in the 60s and then play Black Ops II set in 2025. This is something that i didn't wished. Call of Duty is becoming something like Crysis. Play against bots and all that. Is this the time for other franchises to shine? Battlefield and maybe Crysis?
The graphics don't seem to be pretty much evolved, maybe they worked a little bit at the facial recognition system. As most of the players are saying: 'Almost the same game every year.' Is Activision adopting EA's strategy with sports games, concentrate on profit and not on user opinions?
Now i'm thinking maybe they got the name wrong. Except a few characters from Black Ops I maybe this should have been called Modern Warfare 4.
Black Ops 2 Release Date
This time we won't have to look pretty much or wait to long for a release date to be announced. We will only have to wait for the game to come out (if you are a fan of hi tech shooters). As Activision announced, Black Ops 2 will be available starting 11.13.2012.
Call of Duty is entering a gaming field that is owned by Crysis and onestly, with the graphics that Crysis has it's hard to beat that. Black Ops 2 getting released in november and four months after that Crysis 3 is coming out. I know you are thinking Crysis 3 would be a better alternative for hi tech first person shooter.
Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Trailer
Now that we covered all of that let's see the trailer:
Now a question: Should have been Black Ops 2 actually named Modern Warfare 4?
