GF - Judging by a leaked image it seems that at least three DLCs have already been planned for the Treyarch’s upcoming FPS, COD: BlackOps, due November 9, 2010 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
yea there better be dlc planned..Bring on the Zommys!
Agreed. Keep the new zombie maps coming!
At least three money-making-opportunity already planned for COD: BlackOps
And they're all on the disc too
This is ridiculous, what has the gaming industry and gamers come to?
What kind of bullshit is this? What the hell has become of videogame industry in the "online/internet era"? Now you have to buy "DLC" to unlock content on a disc that you already purchased.
Overprice like MW2 DLC it will be!
I bet $100 they are already DONE! just waiting for release. knowing Kotick, he will want Treyatch working on the next project the next day BO was released!
Anyone know the score with MOD support? I've looked but cant really get a clear yes or no.
there will be mod support for pc http://www.gamespot.com/pc/...
Nice, thank you! Hopefully they're generous on the MOD tools they share, sounds, from that article, they're still undecided.
Dedicated servers too for PC, in case you were wondering
...does a body good.
....But not your wallet. :P
Actually, dairy products promote the growth of mucus which is a breeding ground for a large variety of bacteria that cause many kinds of ailments. Want a good source of calcium? Eat your brocoli and dark leafy vegetables.
You do realize that your body is full of bacteria that are actually HELPFUL as well, right? Where, pray tell, did you get that info btw?
If you have them planned, put them on the disk before you ship it
Eh, how exactly does that work. The game will now be gold, they'll begin work on the DLC, the last of which maybe over a year from now. Should they delay the game until then? Planned does not mean completed does it.
Obviously I dont mean the later ones lol, but you know there is going to be a map pack right around the corner that could have asily been on disk, Most FPS do that sort of thing these days
Thank you finally somebody sees the difference between planned and releasing with. Sigh if a company is going to release DLC say a week, perhaps 2 weeks within a game is released it should have been on the disc hell within a month. There should be more then enough content on the disc when it ships to last you a long time. The goal of DLC is too add on to it, not finish it. Just some devs just dont quite understand that do they?
No, they understand it but they also understand the power of money and that's what drives this practice. If the game is good, I have no problem supporting it (like I will with Halo Reach's noble map pack). It's kinda shady but if it's good content and moderately priced (one can dream), it's not crossing that line
the problem is, the DLC is already in the disk, they just locked it to sell it as DLC and milk out more money.
terrible... dunno what all the fuzz about this game is about. its basically a shittier mw2.
not to be rude here but have you actually looked at the game. They've taken out every stupid perk that broke MW2 and balanced the killstreaks (it looks like it...RCXD could be the only one that's iffy but I think it's gonna be fine) So let's do math MW2 - Problems that plagued MW2 = Black Ops = Should be a good game akin to MW1 The key to not coming off as a troll is backing up your statements instead of making a blanket statement like "its basically a ***** mw2". Explain why it's a worse game and then I might give you some credibility
So your saying its basically a MW1? I don't see how going backwards in the direction that this series took with MW2 is progress. I think I'll be happy holding onto my money and just play MW1 instead.
No I'm saying it's balanced like MW1 was.....last I checked, MW1 didn't have 11 killstreaks (or whatever it is), camera spikes, etc. That being said, I would rather go back to MW1 style than live through another MW2 debacle again. That game is so unbalanced and cheap it's ridiculous. I shouldn't hear a noob tube explode either by me or across the map from me every 3 seconds...that's not balanced I'm saying it wouldn't kill the franchise to go back to its roots so to say in the fact of balancing things out and having good map design. Bring new things (sam turret, flamethrower, dive to prone, etc.) but get it back to being a COD experience and not MW2, which is just too crazy to call a COD experience).
I have played the game already bro. Trust me its really not that different. Yes i do own a JTAG console.
Then you know nothing.
hopefully this time they bundle at least some new mods with the maps...
I imagine it would be something like 3 new maps, 1 zmobie map and 1 WAW map...I would be fine with a map pack like that. Also, if they included WAR mode, I would be VERY happy
Way to suck us dry, and let me guess they will be $20 each?
Thank you MS for bringing us payable dlc.
wikipedia dlc "Microsoft was the first company to charge for downloadable content, with the 2002 video game Mech Assault." "Since Microsoft popularized the business model of microtransactions, many people have criticized downloadable content as being overpriced" "Microsoft has since then been known to force developers to release their content at a charge, when the developers would rather release their content for free." greedy bastards !
I think COD DLC should be free. They already make billions a year. Give something to the fans for free sometimes. I guess that won't happen becuz the fans will keep buying.
Why do I get the feeling that somewhere Bobby Kotick is reading your comment and laughing while he violently masturbates?
pack 1 $15 pack 2 $15 pack 3 $15 ____________ Total: $45 .On DLC. ---------------------- Total with type of copy + DLC $109 regular $125 Harden $195 Prestige Activision Always wins !...How can you win ??? Buy the GOTY. Its that simple or don't buy the game at all
pack 1 contains:1 new zombie map, 2 new maps and 2 [email protected] maps pack 2 contains: all [email protected] zombie maps pack 3 contains: 2 new zombie maps, 1 [email protected] map and 2 new maps
So are the zombies DLC or are they in the game already and what they are talking about are extra maps?
I'd bet anything on it being DLC. Now that acti know that people want it they will give it....but for an additional price.
The sadest part is that this is going to sell millions, no offence to the developers im shure they were forced to do this by activision, but wouldnt it be great if a game like this could share some of its sales with lesser fortunate, but clearly more deserving games... well at least i can proudly state that if you dont count odst i have never bought a single dlc.
Only 5 dollars a map!
it's all free on pc!! we got all the WAW content free....don't [email protected] this one up ! Honestly I hope everyone gets this free....but with acti in tow...you know that's a wet dream!
New pricing for each DLC: 59.99$!!!
DLC 1: Being able to save your achievements DLC 2: Being able to play multiplayer DLC 3: Being able to finish the single player campaign. With Activision I wouldn't be shock if thats the case with their so called DLCs.
Of course there's tons of DLC planned. Milk 'em! MooooooooooOOoOO
what are yall talking about now? I cant wait for this ! PC... ftw
Hopefully they are brand new maps not like those cheap bastards at Infinity ward who just re made 4 maps from COD 4
