MP1st - Treyarch talks about bringing Black Ops II’s multiplayer back to the basics and hints at a much bigger zombies mode, including competitive game modes.
"It can be tough to stray from the current winning multiplayer formula that millions of CoD fans have come to know and love, but Treyarch seems bent on “challenging some long held assumptions,” according to OXM. Treyarch explains that this time around, the multiplayer is being “stripped back to the core,” most likely meaning that they are going to be building the multiplayer from the ground up, rather than adding on to what is already established" Ladies and gentleman, I think I've lost all of my hate for Treyarch.
I told people this when the Black Ops 2 trailer first hit......Minus the graphics still looking outdated, Treyarch is actually trying to save the COD franchise, and their ideas sound good so far.......Im supporting it, it will be the first one I've considered buying since 4
I fail to see how Treyarch is trying to "save" the franchise when it's not even dying in the first place.
They should just strip the online back to CoD4:MW... but that ain't gonna happen.
@Urrakia34: Dude I'm talking about saving it from being a rehash every iteration......that is all. I love Call of Duty actually, but no one can deny the fact that its repetitive.........Each one is basically the same. But regardless of whether or not its repetitive (which pretty much no one can avoid) , its still a great overall package. Just my 2 cents
If I do decided to get it I'll buy it used and only for the zombies. Their MP is total rubbish and the hit detection is assed out.
Hey guys I was thinking that since everyone want a cod4 so badly why not make a cod4 mode so everyone can enjoy and make the rest of the game as the developer want 2 then that would make it fair for everybody.
Well Urrakia. CoD has been challenged by BF 3. Treyarch has to do something to challenge the other side as well. If not then it will look as if Activision gives up. It looks like Treyarch is in line to replace Infinity Ward as main Call of Duty developer and Activision is giving them full freedom to do what they want with the series. I like the ideas towards new knifeing system, zombies, bigger maps, and change to SnD mode. I am suspecting more of a "Rush like" SnD mode. E3 reveal of this stuff?
i agree with guitarded, bring back what made cod great, which was cod 4
Nice to see someone taking risks even if they're minimal. I'm interested in this different ending stuff personally. Treyarch put a lot of effort in black ops campaign with a different (but not spectacular) story. But now MP?!?!? Make me proud Treyarch!
We will see when it comes out...
Prepare to be disappointing. It's not unheard of for these devs to say these kinds of things every year. We'll see how you feel after the game is out.
That's what reviews are for. You thought I was going to buy a COD game day 1? Pfft.
I never viewed the Zombie mode as a mini-game. Quite the opposite actually. I actually never played it as much as I wanted to since matches take so long when you have a good team. Now when I try and go back to play it, I get the host quitting and stuff.....since BO2 will be using the multiplayer engine I hope this means host migrations will be coming as well and I hope people can join mid-game.
I just hope they make big zombie survival maps where matches can take even longer
Here's an idea remove aim assist and don't punish the good player's like the retards over at IW.
they don't use death streaks in there games so i don't see that really being an issue. i just hope they don't implement it.
Removing the aim assist would be enough for me. Get rid of all those "trick-shotters" who were made to look better than they are. Oh and please remove the broken, over-powered knifing.
I'll believe it when i see it and an 8 player Zombies co-op sound's pretty good if it's true.
i would also like to see a night and day version of all multiplayer maps with night vision goggles, with some steet lights and fires to show some visual light in the night levels or a full moon
Or an eclipse???? That would look pretty swanky :3
night map + Call of Duty = a camper's dream I don't know how many times I've been killed by a camper in a dark corner especially on Black Ops. it was so prominent for some reason. night maps with dark corners and ghost pro? lots of raging ahead :)
Wonder if we'll see more CoD4 style gameplay. Either way im really looking forward to this game
When they said they were taking CoD "back to its roots" the first thing I thought was they would be bringing back the 3-5-7 kill streaks. I really hope that's the case. No more of that 10+ overpowered crap. Keep it simple and the same for everyone.
Dont care for multiplayer and single player. Come on zombie mode!!
Looking forward to this game as well. Treyarch seems more promising than Infinity Ward. Looking forward to see what will be done with zombie mode as well.
I've always said that Treyarch always innovated since the split. I can't wait for the gameplay trailer this weekend.
The game will still have a perk system, still have kill streaks and progressive unlocks. Treyarch can spin it however they want but this game will still be a remix of COD4.
I hope so... 3/5/7 killstreaks. No ridiculous overpowered perks. None of these dumb looking bots and drones we see from the trailer. Well... who am I kiddin... we all know what's gonna happen come release. I do hope they keep their word this time tho
less guns, less GLs, less lethal and absolutely less killstreaks will also be a plus edit - compared to mw3
Remove death streaks, less AI powered kill streaks, less bullet magnetism, slightly less auto aim, and no quick scoping would make me soooooool happy.
Treyarch is better at cod than the new IW
They should have a Zombie map in a School and Mall. That would be Epic
So this makes me have some hope for Black Ops 2. Then again this could be all talk and the final product is same old same old CoD.
I hope they have a zombie story mode or something, that would be really cool.
Maybe small...but i hope they keep the customization from black ops....like the emblem creator and how your character changes depending on the perks.
Damn I never even noticed that.
I know I might get some disagrees on this but what do you guys think of having a cover system its really annoying when your out numbered with no cover.
why do people say things about MW3 that should be removed in BO2, that's pretty stupid knowing that MW is made by the NEW infinity ward and treyarch makes BO. Treyarch has not used deathstreaks that Infinity Ward uses. Treyarch removed that killstreaks can get you the next killstreak. Treyarch kind of made quickscoping a bit difficult to do. that's just 3 things i read in the comments and i bet people are complaining about more crap that should be removed from a game that was not created by people who made that certain game.
Treyarch atleast try to do something new...
I liked Black Ops the most so im looking foward to this
I'd rather have 15 battlefield maps then another adhdfps aka call of duty.. the main story will be a fun 6 hours but that's about it for me.
Wake ups kids Call It Doodie couldn't be saved by god himself it has brought down to a level so low it has to look up at whale shit. I twill be full of the usual BS guns, kill streaks, effed up spawns blah, blah. They need to take it out back and put a friggin bullet in its tired head and while you're at it take those effed up lame ass horses out of their misery too. Who trying to kid Treyarch you hacks ? When all you retards gonna wake the eff up ? every Goddamn year they start yapping about how they're gonna make this game better, how they're improving it. " No really ! besides the tired ass graphics from 2005 they're really gonna turn the gameplay around this time !" STFU ! only people you're fooling are all the 12 year olds who just got their first pubes and would buy a dry cow turd if it had a COD sticker on it. Dopes.
So you've had pubes for about a year now then? How's that working out for you?
What's wrong with the official cod cow turd?
Did you feel embarassed after you typed that out? Look at it. Seriously reread your post.
yep they need to step their game up, only thing Cod has left (imo) is zombies, but hell even that is raped by F.E.A.R 3's contractions,
Kudos to treyarch for trying which is a lot more then infinity ward does
I'm guessing there will still be a sky full of death machines racking up easy kills like MW2 and MW3. The whole game is about tech killing us. I'm guessing this will be a mess...
All they need to have in it for me to buy is is AI bots so my son can play multiplayer without needing to be online then im sold.
8 player zombies sound terrible. 4 players was perfect for teamwork and togetherness. with 8 players it will be so confusing. If it ain't broke don't try to fix it because you will wind up breaking it.
I gave you an agree because you are generally right, but I do think 8 player at times could be a laugh. I have six friends I play gun game with when we aren't taking everything too seriously. It would be great for those types of session!
Zombies will be available as paid, day one DLC. Bookmark this post.
soo this means every game will change it's multiplayer to be more like the new Cod multiplayer. to bad for ubi. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
