|Subject: Call of Duty: Black Ops II Images Leak, Confirming Future Setting [Update: Now it's Official] Wed May 02, 2012 5:59 am|| |
Following the leak, Activision has finally confirmed the name Black Ops 2, as well as the game's future setting,
"Pushing the boundaries of what fans have come to expect from the record-setting entertainment franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 propels players into a near future, 21st Century Cold War, where technology and weapons have converged to create a new generation of warfare," says the game's updated website.
The first trailer will be shown during the NBA playoffs in the US, which will begin at 7.30pm EST tonight (after midnight UK time). The website also confirms the game's release date. It hits stores on November 13th.[Original Story]
The first images of Call of Duty: Black Ops II have leaked onto the web ahead of the game’s formal announcement later today. Rather interestingly, they seem to confirm a near-future setting for the game.
There are three images in total, all of which show the game’s Quadrotor drones in action. They’re essentially badass RC flying machine guns. Another of the images shows a soldier, presumably a player character, in a future-tastic helmet, brandishing a rather large rifle.
All of which represents a rather big change for the series (apart from the big gun part). The future! We’ll be getting more info as the day goes on, but in the meantime what do you reckon? Is a future setting just what the series needed? Are you excited by the prospect of piloting a Quadrotor? Are you disappointed by the washed-out brown colour palette? Tell us! And keep it constructive, please.[Link]
