In case you are one of the three people who missed the reveal trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, here it is for you to get a) excited about, b) despondent about or c) angry about. A few days ago, I was somewhat disparaging about the not so surprising announcement of an announcement regarding this reveal. Now if you’d kindly hand me that bowl over there that’s full of my words, I’ll start eating them because for the first time in pretty much ever, I’m rather excited about a Call of Duty game.
Black Ops 2 is set in the near-future, which means we’ll be playing with all sorts of hi-tech military toys designed to kill people with less effort. That’s great news! What’s also great news is that there will be diverging plotlines based on player decisions, which is a first for the Call of Duty series and an indication that Treyarch looks to be putting more effort in for the single-player campaign.
Oh yes, and controllable drones! And a new game mode called “Strike Force”! And female soldiers wearing revealing outfits while fighting zombies! Wait, what?
The below image was dropped via the official Call of Duty Twitter account. It’s a teaser for the return of the ever-popular Zombie Mode.
