    I dunno, it’s kind of weird to me.. I think this might be the first time Treyarch disappoints me.

    [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqOjoYRgnHs&feature=share[/video]

    Edit: Forget what I said. Zombies is gonna be in here. And going to the best yet! Treyarch doesn’t disappoint me atleast :)

    Edit: Qoute from this place (5/03/2012)

    “Our zombies fans want more zombies,” he revealed somewhat unsurprisingly. Hang on though, he’s going somewhere with this. “They literally want more zombies and they want more ways to play” (see). That means Black Ops 2 will be expanding on what the previous games have done before with the undead.

    “They want bigger maps” says Lamia. “They want even more interesting things to do inside these levels. So we are crafting new worlds, creating new game modes and bigger worlds.” Much of what this new zombies will bring is partly due to an undead tech upgrade. “We’ve actually put [zombies] inside of our multiplayer engine and it’s capable of doing twice as many zombies, twice as many co-op players.”

    Eight player zombies is more than just a bigger set up, it’s changing the entire game. “There are actually new modes,” says Lamia. “There’s classic mode that you guys are used to but there are going to be new modes. [Twice as many co-op players] introduces some interesting new gameplay modes. Perhaps you can think of some team game modes where there might be fun to be had?”

    It all sounds like zombies is getting an upgrade from COD accompaniment to full blown main feature. Lamia finishes by saying, “There’s a lot there. It’s its own game mode. There’s a totally new creative fiction. We’re going for it this time on zombies.”

    Holy crap, I’m loving Treyarch thus far. Now I don’t even care for the Main-game anymore!

    Also Gamestop offers 4 Pre-orders 1 has already been revealed the other 3 will be announced along the way
    You get all 4 if you pre-order before the next comes out (Then you lose the one before it)
    Pre-order 1: Double Sided Poster
    Pre-order 2: Revealed on 7/01
    Pre-order 3: Revealed in August
    Pre-order 4: Revealed in October
    Bonus: MW3 Prestige Token

    Amazon offers an exclusive Desktop Wallpaper (Yay..)

    Edit: Engine the game is running on (05/04/12)
    As always this game will be on a Modified IW 3.0 engine.
    Treyarchs games have all been on this same engine and have been updating it everytime.
    Personally I find it weird, because the “IW 5.0″ engine isn’t going to be used or even the 4.0.
    I know the reason for this is because they’re used to the 3.0 Engine, but isn’t change for this kinda needed now?

    Edit: Rumored Multiplayer info. Info from here. (05/05/12)

    Game Modes

    Escort, a new game mode similar to Search and Destroy however a live player must be escorted to one of three areas (or two depending on the map) without being killed. The match will have rounds, consisting of one life only.
    Drop Zone and Kill Confirmed will return
    Team Defender and Infected will not return

    Pointstreaks

    Will follow from Modern Warfare 3’s system
    Larger emphasis on objectives
    A bomb plant is worth 2 points
    A neutral flag is worth 1, however an enemy flag is worth 2
    A flag assist capture is worth 1, a capture is worth 2
    The Specialist Pointstreak has be modified
    2 kills now gets you 1 perk
    The 4th kill gets you 2 more perks
    The 6th kill gets you 3 more perks
    The 8th Kill gets you 4 more perks
    You do not get every perk when you reach 8 kills
    Perks only become “Pro” when you have them Pro
    RC XD will not return

    Heat vision

    Is a new Pointstreak reward
    When you get the required points, you can activate this Pointstreak and your player pulls out a scope and attaches it to your weapon.
    This scopes main advantage is it’s ability to detect enemies through most walls.
    Note, the scope can only be attached to primaries not including shotguns

    Item Packages

    Requires 5 points
    Fall along side care packages and air drop traps.
    Features a list of package items only
    Including ammo, mini gun, grenade launcher, rocket launcher, and body armor

    There will be 15 prestiges
    There will be 50 ranks
    Every two prestiges there is a 5 rank increase
    The final prestige has 90 levels

    ELITE 2.0

    ELITE is being fully incorporated into Black Ops 2
    Combat record has been modified and re-named as ELITE Stats
    There will be a specific lobby for clan matches (new way of leveling clans)
    Clan Tournaments can now be implemented

    Removed

    No MOAB or Nuke
    No last stand
    No death streaks
    No flame thrower attachment

    Map Design

    Map design and size will be following Black Ops not Modern Warfare 3

    Sniper Rifles

    Improved sniper rifle usage.
    No aim assist for any sniper rifle.
    Less sway

    Customization

    No longer just perk 1 chooses the players appearance
    Appearance is a combination of all perks and type of Pointstreak being used.

    Hardcore

    Larger emphasis on hardcore than ever before
    No grenade launchers
    Only vehicle guided rocket launchers permitted
    Respawn timings decreased (for most modes)
    1 bullet in the foot will no longer kill a person, a head or chest shot is usually required.
    A person will now bleed out if severely injured.

    Perk System 2.0

    The Perk Pro system has been upgraded
    There is now 2 options a perk can advance to.
    Both require different challenges to unlock
    Once the desired Pro version is unlocked, the player can select that as their “Perk Pro”.
    Once selected, the only way to choose the other option is by entering prestige mode.
    For example Perk slot 1 has the perk called Speed
    Speed – Reduces the time taken to aim down the sight
    Pro I – Swaps weapons faster
    Pro II – Throws equipment faster

    Combat Training

    Will be returning with vast improvements.
    Difficulty is no longer based on how long the bots take to start shooting.
    Bots now have an advance AI system
    Similar to the behavior seen in the MW3 Spec Ops survival

    As many problems as I have with the COD franchise and its community (with a few exceptions), you can always count on them to make a spectacularly balls-out campaign. I just hope it’s more substantial than the ones in recent COD games.

    #27780

    I’m excited for this…..but then again I am excited for every COD game that comes out :/

    Hmm I’m not sure what to make of it. I really liked the first one. I thought the single player was underrated as I found the story quite interesting. The online play was a massive step up from Modern warfare 2 as well. I especially liked the in game money so you could just unlock what you wanted. All that said MW3 has to be one of the most disappointing sequels I’ve ever played. I thought it was very boring and lazy (the campaign did pick up at the end). The online took a huge step back to MW2 level annoyance. It’s kinda put me off the series. But then this is Treyarch so it could be a more polished version of the first Black ops. I think I’ll wait a while after release this time.

    Well I have to give Treyarch credit, at least with the first Black Ops, they took chances and made some changes to the Call of Duty franchise; hopefully this will continue that pattern. I don’t mind the setting at all as Battlefield 2142 turned out a success. It’s whether or not they can keep it from getting stale that will be the primary concern. As the others mentioned, they should try and keep the campaign story strong. And while Frank Woods’ inclusion may seem implausible, I take it as a sign that they’re focusing on keeping the story engaging (too bad they can’t include Reznov )=. )

    I kinda hope they take even greater chances this time; I heard a rumor that Sledgehammer was going to make MW3 more of an open world Action/adventure game, which I can see turning out alright, but obviously that never happened.

    #27838

    I’ve always had faith in Treyarch. I’ve loved each game they made World at War, Black Ops, and I’m sure I’ll like this one. But, of course they all had their faults but, Treyarch seems to make bold changes that benefit the franchise well.

    I checked the COD wiki, and they confirmed that there will be MAJOR departures in gameplay. The campaign will be more sandbox and include optional “strike force” missions that effect the outcome of the story. I’ll admit, I’m genuinely excited now. They’re breathing new life into a stale franchise. This could be awesome.

    Also, David Goyer, the writer for Dark Knight, is attached to the project. Definitely a good sign.

    I didn’t really come around to liking them until Black Ops. I thought Call of Duty 3 was pretty bland, and I had problems with World At War’s multiplayer (mostly I experienced ungodly lag), but yeah, they’re a good studio now.

    #27931

    I’m meh about this… this just doesn’t WOW me like it used to… :/

    Lag isn’t really Treyarchs fault. (Atleast to me cause I never had that bad of lag it was hiccups but nothing unplayable)

    I have never played CoD 3. I entered the Series at World at War and to this day, that remains my favorite then Black Ops and then MW3 (But that’ll hopefully be replaced by Black Ops 2)

    #28059

    Please read the newest update I found. Sounds very promising. :D (Top)

    #28295

    I’d thought I’d like to put this out there. I will be trying to keep this as up to date as possible with news and updates on the game. If you got anything I don’t have yet, please message me with it.

    You know, seeing as they’re making such an awesome effort to make Zombies so awesome, I might actually consider getting this game, perhaps after the price drops. Of course the campaign will be amazingly balls-to-the-wall, and Zombies will be awesome to play with Steam friends. I will be avoiding the multiplayer like the plague, but still, could be fun.

    Have you played Cod4? Yea that was when Infinity Ward actually had brains. World at War is still my favorite and I can’t wait for Black Ops 2.

    PS The horses are from a mission in the 80s

    I played a small bit of CoD4, I can say it was good. Although I still prefer Treyarchs stuff, MW2 and MW3 are pretty much lack of effort to me.

    And thank you for addressing the horse thing, I forgot to respond to that.

    Actually, Infinity Ward practically doesn’t exist anymore. At least, all the staff that made the original games are no longer there; they got sued into oblivion by Activision after some legal spat when MW2 got released.

    I blame that mostly on the “new guys” who still make up IW’s staff (the company did double in size between COD4 and MW2). They clearly didn’t share their original vision of creating a “soldier’s story” and just wanted to make setpiece eyecandy. Basically they missed the point of why IW split off from the Medal of Honor franchise in the first place.

    Well losing your CEO’s hits a company hard, even Treyarch lost one of their original guys. (Community Manager) but, IW has had a hard time because of the Sueing and the CEO gone. And I really don’t want this thread to become an IW bashing thread.

    Well most of us hate them. Kinda hard to not talk about them when you talk about CoD

    Black Ops 2 is the first game to interest me since 4. Seriously, parts where you don’t shoot AND an actual good writer? I approve.

    Did you not play World at War? That game was a milestone for the series. But, yes I do agree, this has gotten me really interested in the series since World at War. I mean Modern Warfare had a cool idea of story but, didn’t execute it correctly. I dunno.. This could indeed become TOO advanced (no pun intended) for it’s own good, and ruin Treyarchs Rep and my love for them.

    By the way, I’d like to add some speculations I’ve come up with.
    From the rumored multiplayer information I found. It seems that Shotguns (as always will be a primary only) and Rocket Launchers/Grenade Launchers will be from Carepackages only although Vehicular-Launcher only type Launchers might be an option. Sniper-Rifles might go back to there original states of CoD4/5. Bullet hitzones will affect the player accordingly to the zone (I.E. Bullets to the leg won’t kill you or hopefully Throwing Knife to the foot won’t kill you). There will be a ‘type’ of last stand but, depending on how you were shot you might not be able to get in the last bullet. Leveling will be a bit more ‘tougher’, I guess. Objectives are now very much so a MUST for players (I.E. They score you more now). Pistols might be your only secondary option again (CoD4/5 style). Killsteaks will be in the same branches: Assault/Support/Specialist. Many player-controlled killstreaks will be dropped. Combat Training is going to be more or less like a real Multiplayer game. Maps will be all ground-level combat and have generalized gun-type play zones. Many Game-ending/Non-bullet (Flame Thrower and Etc.) will be removed. Perks are going to be re-balanced and what they do. Proficiencys from MW3 will now be included within Pro-Perks.
