Some new screenshots and additional details have emerged about Treyarch’s next entry in the Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Set in 2025, players are thrust into a new Cold War dominated by near-future technology, with combat relying heavily on robotics and drones. As the new crisis reaches a boiling point, players must make their way through a branching storyline that features non-linear missions, a first for the series.
Oh, and Zombies will be back—fingers crossed for cyborgs!
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is scheduled to launch on November 13 for 360, PC, and PS3.
“With Call of Duty: Black Ops II, the team is crafting an experience that Call of Duty fans have never seen before,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head for Treyarch. “We are challenging assumptions on every front, with the single player campaign, Zombies and multiplayer. In the campaign, we are creating a thought-provoking story that introduces branching storylines and meaningful choices that impact the narrative. Running in the multiplayer engine for the first time, Zombies gives players a bigger and more diverse set of gameplay experiences, as well as entirely new ways to wage war with the undead. And in multiplayer, we’re embracing all skill levels and play styles to give players more ways to engage. With Call of Duty: Black Ops II, we’re all in and we won’t rest until we’ve launched nothing less than the best Call of Duty we’ve ever made.”
