Call of Duty Black Ops studio Treyarch is building a game set around the Cold War period – and the developer suggested it won’t pull any punches in delivering an experience that’s faithful to the infamous and brutal era.
Treyarch’s previous game, World At War, set the tone with an execution in the opening salvo, and the brutality progressed as players were given the choice to engage in mass-execution using Molotov cocktails.
Speaking to Develop, Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia took a philosophical approach when asked if the group was aiming to replicate World At War’s emotional impact in Black Ops.
“I think it is absolutely part of what we do,” he said. “There will be situations and scenes where people will pause, and have to think about things.”
