YouTube user MW3Upload has claimed that they were allowed to film the Beta Menu Screen for the upcoming Call of Duty game Black Ops 2.
Too white, it'll hurt my eyes on my 50" screen, but then again, CoD died for me after CoD4. Battlefield and Killzone all the way.
I think it looks good
Well if this gets taken down by Activision for copyright reasons then u know its legit
And now its gone. Hmmmm..... Alternate link. Not taken down...yet... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
CoD4 was the great one, and CoD never died, it just hasn't lived up to CoD4:MW. CoD2 was okay, but CoD3 and [email protected] don't hit the quality bar. MW2 and Black Ops didn't raise the bar set by MW so they're condemned by critics and fans a disappointments, MW3--summarizing opinions of most--sets in between MW2-Black Ops and [email protected] Not great, not necessarily good, not meh. Just okay. Just so you guys know, it's either fake or an alpha build menu for testing. It could be legit, but if it is, this isn't the work of Treyarch or of a final build. Regardless of it's made by Activision or not, it will probably be taken down because they don't like to create a public image of a product until 2-3 months before it's release.
COD always has seperate menus.. for multiplayer... campaign.. and etc... But since this is Beta menu couldn't be completed.. I don't know
Can't wait.. Black ops is best COD to date IMO.
agreed, i sold my MW3 just playing black ops now!
no cod4 is
No. UO is. 4 is second.
I bought COD4 to see what everyone was talking about, $10 well spent. My analysis? It sucks compared to BlOps & MW3! You kids are crazy with your 4 year old nostalgia glasses on.... Those should only be effective 10+ years! Yes, you all had a blast playing COD4, it was critically acclaimed for its time. You played it so much you burnt out on the entire genre and nothing else will ever eclipse it. "Back in my day you only had 3 killstreaks, and you couldn't even choose them!" Well, back in my day, you started with 3 lives, and when you lost them all you got a screen that said "GAME OVER" and you had to start back at the beginning. Silly kids...
@grahf You make no sense. No one is claiming COD4 is the best right now. It was the best when it came out because of the innovation and the way it introduced the perk system, just like you said. "It sucks compared to BlOps & MW3!" No shit, if you bought the game now after playing the 4 other CODs that came after, you're gonna think it sucks. Like really? Do you have any sort of common sense to be making that conclusion. First of all, the only reason i consider it the best is because it was it was something brand new that was fresh and addicting. You can even say mw2 was the best and it would be acceptable. But every COD since then has been the same crap re-hashed with a bunch of extra perks thrown in. Sure Black ops is better and more polished than COD4, but considering the time it was released (4 years after COD4), it should've been someting wayy different and more innovative. Then i would have called it "best". Lastly, have you ever thought about the fact that having just 3 killstreaks and less perks likely kept the game more balanced? There wasn't nearly as much of a disbalance issue with COD4 because there were just enough features. To clarify, don't make stupid comparisons with sequels if you never played the original game in it's prime. And, it has nothing to do with nostalgia, my opinion is based on the leap from COD3 to COD4, and the amount of fresh amazing ideas that kept it innovative.
Black Ops is just so nice. Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Black Ops 2? man it's going to be a very good autumn/winter! it defo looks legit though. I think the most surprising thing of all is that they are having a beta for it. kudos to them.
They always have a closed beta on 360...
Black ops was CoD in slow motion. Hideous.
Really? Black Ops had marathon pro(you could run forever) while MW3 doesn't. This alone makes Black Ops much faster paced. On topic: There is no Black OPs 2 beta. Just some kid trying to get some Youtube views.
By beta they probably just mean a closed private early unpolished model that's only open to developers, testers, and family. There just isn't a "beta" open to the public.
from the looks of the pictures it might be set in modern and olden days of war..
I wouldn't mind if COD took a step back, MW3 was awful.
agreed, it was terrible COD4 was the pinnacle, if they did some changes like the AC franchise, it would be a great series but the same every year!
Idk, but that looks like a modern warfare menu to me, it doesnt look like a black ops one.
Looking forward to this because MW3 was by far the worst COD to date.
Im hoping that there is a decent story in the campaign this time.
i think its fake video
I liked the white screen. The characters on the two menu screens seemed to fit with 80's era military. I liked it, and a supposed Zombie campaign is what I've been hoping for since WAW. Not bad if its real.
The is going to be garbage like all other cod games... Man, I'm so glad BF3 is as good as it is...
You know if cod didnt exist then bf3 would be a mediocre shooter. Not sure about the first 2 and the bad company series.
Why would they need to beta test it? It's the same game they've been releasing for the last 5 years.
Good attempt. Wish people would stop calling it Black Ops 2 though. Kinda a stupid name for game since Black Ops is indirectly linked to world at war, which essentially makes it the third game in a "treyarch trilogy" (excluding CoD 3). Then again.... Activision can be stupid and they did trademark the name. Just hope they dont stick with it.
Why wouldn't they call it Black Ops 2? Black Ops was a continuation of World at War, not a direct sequel. They probably want to differentiate the series for consumers to know what they're getting.
loll it's been milked so hard even the menu colour is white...
I'm calling BS.
Must be internal beta, cuz we all know COD will never have public betas, you have to pay for COD beta. Thats what the first 6 months of COD games are till they start patching
It might be real because we all know that there is a new call of duty coming out but as far as it being called black ops 2 im skeptical about that.
ZOMBIE CAMPAIGN! ZOMBIE... *faints* *Wakes Up* This may be just what the COD community has been waiting for. That's why I can put my trust with Treyarch. I loved WAW and BO. and ZOMBIEZ
I have a feeling this is fake. I have seen that art on the main screen before....
This is fake.. Wouldnt the game be in alpha testing right now? Not closed beta
Could well be called black ops 2, worked for the modern warfare series,... so kinda makes sense that treyarch want to brand their product with an actual series name as well.... but only if they intended it to be a direct sequel. As for beta, wouldn't it be alpha at the moment?.
Really? CoD is so important in some peoples lives that a rumored, beta, MENU SCREEN makes news. What happened to gaming lol
nowt happened to gaming, when u take into account that last one was the biggest entertainment launch of all time(apparently),it explains it all. Apart from the fact that gaming became more mainstream, obviously.
I wonder if both Treyarch and infintyward are burnt out on churning out in odd year rotation the same piece of shit? It must be exhausting to know they are.t pushing the boundaries, making little to no changes to the formula and doing the same thing every year.. releasing Super cool looking CGI trailers to hype the Game only to deliver an underwhelming campaign and gameplay! Are people really excited for this? I guess so!
zombie campaign hey.. glad black ops making a return still play it between battlefield 3,great game.
Will there be dedicated servers or the same laggy matches?
iam so glad i never bought mw3 if you havnt learnt your lesson with black ops you will never and you will always buy these trash games
To be the honest person here I didn't really start playing COD till MW2 and I really loved it. Then BO came out and HATED it. Now here's the funny thing, MW3 which I've been looking forward to for 2 years SUCKS, MW3 is the biggest load of rubbish ever. I'm not going on a rant but its bad......really bad. The funny thing is though seeing how bad MW3 is made me realise how much I actually liked BO and now gone back to playing that. Making me really excited about BO2. BTW until then I'm loving BF3.
CoD is the 'Madden' of FPS games, yearly releases of a rehashed product and every 5-10 years, they'll release a real sequel to milk for another decade. Without Respawn Entertainment (70% of IW before MW2), CoD will never change. Treyarch and Activision have been leeching on CoD4 and it appears they can't do any better.
Seriously, a menu screen? And this is news worthy? Next you'll be plastering a homescreen banner saying that someone was humming the theme tune while having a turnout.
Black Ops 2?? I didn't think the CoD franchise could get even less creative.
