So it's just a new game with cod 4 and mw2 maps. I kind of find that lame if they just going to use old maps then why not use maps from every cod?
Lulz_Boat  +   1245d ago
it's free, who cares if they use old maps?
the_hitman3000  +   1245d ago
Oops I didn't read that part my bad well then i guess its not that bad then if free. I just figured they was charging but nope that's good. Still would be cool to have maps from other games with them
GrumpyVeteran  +   1245d ago
Screams lazy but you're right, it's free, let the standards fall further.
zeal0us  +   1245d ago
Wonder how long this game turn out like Combat Arms.

P2W and filled with hackers.

So is it only in china? I think it's a good idea and would suit the FTP model.

Well, I'm sure if it does well in china, it will follow suit in the rest of the world.

@TopDudeMan - No. They'll never go Free2Play as long as each release of the console version sets sales and profit records.

If it starts to wean, then yeah, maybe explore a F2P type model, but there's a steep drop for that to become relevant.

Isn't COD already online? Naming FAIL!
ALLWRONG  +   1245d ago
So the people who normally support free are now hating on free because it's Activision/CoD?

This a bold move by Activision considering the fear people had over this
bakasora  +   1245d ago
LOL, I remember someone from Activison said they are not making COD online.
Blastoise  +   1245d ago
Because CoD4 and MW2 had awesome maps...MW3 didnt..
supersonicjerry  +   1245d ago
MW3 only had like 2-3 good maps.
Hufandpuf  +   1245d ago
the only good map in MW2 was Terminal
Irishguy95  +   1244d ago
Eh I disagree, I felt most of MW2's maps where too random and all over the place. No structure like Cod4.
Genghis  +   1244d ago
Highrise, Invasion, and Skidrow were pretty good maps. Plus let's not forget the love it or hate it Wasteland...
Trebius51  +   1245d ago
CoD are the kings of the rehash. Most CoD fans will thank them and praise them for giving them rehashed maps. I dont thank a company for continuing to regurgitate the same content year after year and tell us it's "improved". "Improved" modified engine, "Improved" weapons. "Improved" multiplayer. "Improved" AI. "Improved" Improvisations. "Improved" "Improved" "Improved". CoD are the kings of improvements i should say :)
JBSleek  +   1245d ago
What is innovation but an improvement on previous ideas and themes.

Am I saying CoD innovates, well that's up to the indivudual but constant improvement is how we got technology to what it is now.

Nothing that is brought out now is nothing "new" or "unseen"
Fishy Fingers  +   1245d ago
Trebius, did you make that account purely to bitch about COD?

It's free and exclusive to China, give it a break.
Trebius51  +   1245d ago
Dont get mad BRAH. Just stating my opinion on CoD. Theyre greedy bloodsucking pigs.

Dont cry pls brah, not tryin to make u mad.

2.China's first cod game

So this is aimed toured china and it is a really good game for the china consumers sense they really have not gotten the chance to play cod.So it will be interesting to see how well it does in china
El_Colombiano  +   1245d ago
zeddy  +   1245d ago
isnt call of duty already online? this is just another way of activision milking the franchise. cept idiots will buy it just like they did with cod elite, which black ops had for free and built in.
mynameisEvil  +   1245d ago
I think it's problem is that of it's console brethren: It WILL be unbalanced and it WILL rehash more crap. And, knowing Activision, it'll be pay-to-win as well.

Now, back to Blacklight: Retribution...

This better be free to play, because it looks atrocious... or was this meant to look like it was being played on a Nintendo DS?
Summons75  +   1245d ago
Isn't call of duty always online? I mean they went from a story focus to a multiplayer focus and don't even have a story anymore, so why bother just making the same thing you will be releasing in less than 6 months anyway? Activision greed has no bounds apperently
Raiz  +   1245d ago
the graphics looks like a SHIT.... Just feeling pity for gamers in CHINA.... Activision is just making FUN of them... by giving this BULLS*** in the name of a Call of Duty Free to Play Game... lolzz......

Piracy is bad in China, maybe activision thought it would be better just to give it to them :P
Moncole  +   1245d ago
People need to remember this is for China. China has a very different economy the US or UK. and the resolution was 380p, were you expecting HD to something?
#7 (Edited 1245d ago ) | Agree(5) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
DarthJay  +   1245d ago
The video quality is irrelevant to the graphic complaints. HD video being shown at 360p will still look high quality. These graphics in 360p look worse than the original graphics for those games at the same resolution, but that's not the point. This isn't about resolution. You have a game play above 1080p still look like crap if the actual art and character models look terrible.
Axecution  +   1245d ago

annus  +   1245d ago
Oh, it's the console kids who don't understand resolution but think 1080p means it's the next big graphics game.

He is completely correct. I watch everything in 360p as my internet isn't good enough to watch at 720/1080 unless I wait for it to load, and I can tell the difference between a good looking game and a terrible looking game. You can still see shadows, you can still see particles, you can still see animations, you can still (semi) see textures, you can see lighting.

If I went into an old PC game and set it to 1080p, does that mean the graphics are automatically set to PS3 style graphics?
Axecution  +   1245d ago
I agree that you can tell what a game will look like, generally, with 360p video. But he said:

"HD video being shown at 360p will still look high quality."

Which is completely wrong. If you watch a blu-ray on a standard def TV, it will look the exact same as a DVD on a standard def TV.

Also, no matter what you say, you can not judge a game's graphical quality based off of a 360p trailer. It's displaying at a ludicrousness incomparably low resolution coupled with YouTube's low bitrate videos. Explosions may look blocky and poorly animated on a YouTube 360p video, whereas the game running on ultra at 1080p+ could look mindblowing.

Activision rehashing everything lol
Wizziokid  +   1245d ago
Free to Play and Activision in the same sentence... something isn't right here wait for the catch
Blastoise  +   1245d ago
To be fair, as much as I hate the CoD DLC atleast they never went down the online pass route *cough* EA *cough*
EazyC  +   1245d ago
There is a catch, i heard it in the press release, it's going to be revolve around microtransactions, so hehe you're right!
Wizziokid  +   1245d ago
That's only a bad point if they make it Pay to Win but if the items are balanced and you don't need to buy them it should be ok.

but I can see it being those who pay more get massive advantage with this game.
M-M  +   1245d ago
The guns are going to have ads on them.
stormskiier  +   1245d ago
Activision is so much better then EA. No preorder bonuses, paying to level up to highest rank, ONLINE PASSES. The only thing activision does is milk their popular series but its only one new COD game a year
ginsunuva  +   1245d ago
Every game in china now is pretty much f2p on pc because console sales are banned in china, and the chinese don't believe in paying for non-physical things (software). But for some reason they're fine with paying for their non-physical in-game microtransactions..
JBSleek  +   1245d ago
This is only for China because the way their gaming industry works is vastly different than ours therefore Call of Duty Online is about the only way Activision can make any revenue in that part of the world.

The comments about quality are misguided.
Emilio_Estevez  +   1245d ago
Come down people, China is a whole different beast when it comes to games. Don't expect anything like this for other regions.
Rubberlegs  +   1245d ago
Exactly. The gaming market in China and even in Korea are huge into fp2 micro-transition games. They lots of f2p games that never get released outside of those countries, Korea has their own version of Counter-Strike. They have internet cafes on just about every street corner. Its a whole different scenes over their.

Integrating dubstep with the in-game sound effects was rather tasteful.

Unlimax  +   1245d ago
JKelloggs  +   1245d ago
Still free to play, nothing stopping you from playing (as long as you meet the requirements) :)

COD still has supporters
LOL good lord that makes me laugh
artdafoo  +   1245d ago
Lucky them, they dont have to pay $60 every year for an expansion pack.
taquito  +   1245d ago
the game will look better than any call of duty console game, just like every pc version of cod since mw1, you'll be able to play at 1080p, 1600p, ect at 60-120 frames with 8x anti aliasing

and its free
Bladesfist  +   1245d ago
I don't care if a crap looking game will be at a higher resolution.
Kran  +   1245d ago
Sorry but if this is a game to be released only in China, why the hell is this an english trailer with chinese subtitles?

Only one can wonder why... (if you don't know, well they're obviously going to release in English territories aren't they?)
KillerPwned  +   1245d ago
It is F2P and only in china...fuck. I can understand though releasing a F2P COD in EU and US would destroy sales.
Bladesfist  +   1245d ago
There are so many better F2P PC games in EU and US. Planetside 2. Blacklight Retribution. Team Fortress 2.
KillerPwned  +   1245d ago
Hell yeah without a doubt especially TF2.
Unlimax  +   1245d ago
US + EU VS CHINA = What's the different they can make much money in china itself .. i mean Look at China's population lol !
SeraphimBlade  +   1245d ago
Wait, I thought we already had Call of Duty Online. It's called Call of Duty.

I like it , Mw1 and Mw2 is where this game is molded , this is where the franchise was at it's peak , hope this comes to ps3 like Dust 514 as a free to play game etc .

Looks like any of the more recent Call of duty games to me.

Hope that doesnt mean Pay to win, usually it does right?
Anyways Pay 2 Win Call of Duty would be like the nr 1 reason mad dudebro's go raging everywhere. Imagine when people starts using hacks to win... All hell is breaking loose. Hilarious!
