Black Ops II Multiplayer Reveal Trailer

November is fast approaching and you know what that means... the annual Call of Duty is hitting store shelves. Haters are going to hate but this one could be a game changer for the franchise.

Branching single player story lines, Zombies with a versus mode, Strike Force, and a Multiplayer portion that is said to not disappoint sounds like Treyarch put in some overtime with this one.

Now the premier Multiplayer trailer has arrived: (Activision Blizzard Inc., Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Treyarch, Xbox 360)

This looks really good, I'm honestly surprised. Way to go Treyarch!

I'm stoked. Couldn't peg that for a CoD game if it didn't have the label.

I'm not a fan of Treyarch's games, but Black Ops 2 looks so freakin' CLEAN.

Great trailer but I can't believe they would blatantly copy the song from ubisoft's game as staystatic pointed out :S

Thankfully the guns are way better than black ops. I could remember how in bo the guns all sounded and felt the same which really made the game boring. Good to see some change. Also hopefully there will be a moab would be fun in bots.

Such an obvious and weak analogy.
My 2012 5.0 says differently than the 2010 4.6 liter.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1283d ago
I still see a lot of stuff that I don't like... Cheap habilities like seeing people through walls (0:20) and smoke (0,26), even cheaper gadgets as portable shields, directional sound turret and quadrotors UAV spies (I hate MAVs on BF3 and I'm a recon guy!).

And as usual a pre-order bonus announce at the end. But every game now is like this, DLC before even launching...

But at least a lot of stuff there compliment the setting this time, afterall it's set on the future, not trying to necessarily reach for realism.

My last COD was 4, so I may be out of touch, but I see some evolution there, finally! If it's not so crazy fast and cheap as other COD games I may try it, but gotta see more before taking the plunge.

Exactly what do you expect from a sequel if you're going to use that phrase for this game. This game changes so much in the cod franchise its insane. They're bringing so many new things to the table in multiplayer alone, there's still zombies and even single player to check out yet, but for some reason there's people here saying things that imply this is just like the other cods. I Mean I know there are alot of idiotic people on here but this is just being ignorant. This cod sequel has more changes than most franchises today do. Stop being a blind hater for once.

Same procedure as last year.

"That overproduced trailer looks so different and new"

...3 weeks after release...

"It's the worst COD ever. Online is broken and all the perks are an unbalanced mess. Quick-scoping, turbo-knifing etc. etc. I'M NEVER BUYING A COD GAME AGAIN!"

first cod game that I really really dont like!
DARK WITNESS  +   1282d ago
ya ya, it looks all new and dazzling... which is what it's meant to do and this is what they do each year with cod.

It looks better then MW3 and why wouldn't it but what about all the stuff we never see in the trailers.

How much bullet lag, lag compensation are we going to get this time?

How crap is the spawn system going to be this time?

How big or small are the maps really going to be ? If they are designed as badly as MW3's launch maps, it will only make me hate them more.

bottom line is I have been bitten on my arse too many times now with cod. Does not matter what new gimmicks they add or change, if some of those basic issues are not sorted it's just going to be endless frustration all over again.

Nice trailer, but I think I will pass..

get rid of the knife. this is a shooter game... and who ever brings a knife to a gun fight, is a idiot.

In my Nacho Libre voice: Aren't you tired of dying when your shoe laces get cut ... while blasting off rounds from your AK at the dudes face.

The knife should do damage.. not lethal injection!

Or it should be a take down move... like the ones ive seen in prison. Not Carl Lewis poking people with a hat pin!

I see a little mix of Halo/Uncharted with personal decals and multi team deathmatch. I hope that means it goes up to more than just 3 teams, but even if only 3 its an improvement. Would be nice to have 4 teams of 4 going at it. 16 player chaos.

PockyKing  +   1283d ago
This is the biggest advancement in COD since 4, you don't need anymore than a trailer like this to see that, not that it's saying much or anything, but it's still a new look, new game and will fulfill the fans needs.
user5467007  +   1283d ago
Oh for the love of god people said the same thing about Black Ops compared to World at War and people still found it crap

People said the same thing for MW2, about how it looked like an "advancement" from MW and the same for M3 compared to MW2...and guess what happens people always say the same thing a month after launch

"It wasn't that good"

The cycle is just repeating and people are going to be suckered into buying what looks like en expansion to Black Ops instead of buying other titles coming out this fall which actually deserve to be bought.

So why watch the trailer then ? Like Kelloggs said, you didn't see all the guns. Actually some of the guns in the game have recoil, remember the stoner in Black ops ?

Massive amount of Recoil.
HammadTheBeast  +   1283d ago
It was a goddamn LMG too, of course it would have recoil, and it has about the recoil of a sidearm.
DarkTower805  +   1283d ago
@Hammad, the 240 SAW is an lmg with little recoil in REAL LIFE! Modern weapons actually have VERY LITTLE recoil. Something tells me the people complaining about recoil have never shot weapons in real life, and airsoft doesn't count lol.

how is knifing "annoying" especially in a faced-paced MP like CoD? it allows the game to flow really nicely I think.

if you have the reaction times of a donkey then tough for you. I don't see why they changed it, nobody complained about knifing.

The people shooting the guns probably have the strongest arms, and are built like a brick s*** house, and can compensate for the recoil, ever thought of that???

How is the equipping the knife a fail? If anything it's a pro, other than a con, think of how many quick-knifers it stops? A TON!

AngelicIceDiamond  +   1283d ago
Well, from a trailer standpoint it looks much better than MW3's and the levels seem to have depth and some creative design to them. So, the trailer is score for Treyarch. Now hopefully some details will be talked about later on regarding new features coming to MP. Please be balanced, heres hoping.
HammadTheBeast  +   1283d ago
I don't really know what to make of it. I want to like it, but it seems kind of similar, and the killstreaks seem to be a huge part of gameplay as usual.

The map design seems improved, but guns still need work and snipers are the usual bullsh*t.

If zombies works, I may consider it. Just my opinion, we're all gamers, if some people like it, I understand.
Afirmitive  +   1283d ago
Since it looks like I will be the first one not liking what I am goes. It looks promising for the fans who like COD for what it is this very day, a one man army. Armored walking tank is equivalent to the assault drone, yes it's a little taller, but that's pretty much the same thing. Throwing electric knife thingy is the same as a stun grenade. Is it going to be the most competitive shooter out there? Heck yes. And that is the sole reason why I will take interest in it. But please, people, it's the same ole same ole. Admit it and move on.

SeekDev  +   1280d ago
Gamers argue that CoD sucks because it has such an influence on the gaming industry that it has skyrocketed the streamlining of video games for casuals (imo). One of the reasons I myself am against CoD is because it supports a lack of innovation in sequels that, last generation, was unheard of. It's made this acceptable today (albeit mainly in FPS because that is what it primarily effects).
WildStyles  +   1283d ago
Man, this doesn't even look that bad. I'm a Call Of Duty hater but I can't hate on this like I usually do.

I watched the trailer, didnt leave me wanting i have to admit, ill rent or borrow it at some-point, im not as narrow minded to not want to try it out, im not expecting great things however, just a another game with enough appeal to warrant a single playthrough when theres not much else for me to play

Im waiting for the Dark Souls dlc, now thats a trailer that got my heart beating

spartanmike1978  +   1283d ago
WOW! Honestly not a cod fan boy, enjoy both cod and battlefield, honest opinion, I am very impressed, textures look much crisper and cleaner, lighting looks amazing, sun effects on the ground, whole color palette just looks a lot cleaner and crisper than past cod`s which by the way I thought were great looking games too. I'd go as far to say that this game is one the best looking console games to date, and will be running at a smooth 60fps, way to go treyarch, I can honestly see the engines graphical updates this time around, and I was hesitant about that when treyarch was talking about the better textures and lighting, I'm guessing this is Xbox gameplay? Super stoked!!!!!!!!!!
HammadTheBeast  +   1283d ago
Probably not Xbox. It's much easier to make in-game trailers on PC.
BlackPhoenix  +   1282d ago

CrimsonessCross  +   1283d ago
Trailers are deceiving but I do like the trailer as well as it is showing some actual game-play and it does look to be quite a fun time. I just hope they don't patch the game to oblivion.

If it is or will be anything like the way the original Black Ops was, I could see getting addicted to this one as well. But with Elite, if there is an elite only anything that happens to unlock anything non-cosmetic then I'm done. I just have no interest in Elite before any DLC comes out. It's like promising someone they'll do a good job and giving them the money up front without the work being done.

It's different of course, not too different though. I don't care about graphics or even really sound (both just give more immersion) but game-play is what I enjoy the most. ACTI can die, as said before as can money-grubbing game devs and pubs so I'm just being skeptical. I'd rather reward Treyarch for zombies and a decent MP +/- SP mode if they hit the spot.

Activision can do the same as can the new IW and whomever else helped make this game.

Treyarch seems to be of course trying to do what they can and I love the look of the game and I respect them for that. I just hope the maps, guns and everything else work out. Don't think I'm a fan of Elite only bits though if true.

I'm not a fan of getting milked. I don't know if I can be a CoD person again.

Dlacy13g  +   1283d ago
My guess is its some kind of sonic / sound emitter. Military is experimenting with that stuff now... blast a very directional sound blast at someone and it can temporarily disorient.
Parasyte  +   1283d ago
When he deploys it and gets the kill assists from it, it's called the Guardian.

It's probably based on the microwave emitter weapon that the US military is experimenting with.

It bombards the target(s) with microwaves, disorients them, and makes their skin feel like it's burning. I'm wondering if the BO2 version will just disorient or damage as well.
