Activision's teased the very first look at Call Of Duty: Black Ops' multiplayer component, and it echoes everything we've said about Treyarch's latest attempt at the prestigious shooter franchise -- they're genuinely poised to knock it out of the park with this one
There's tons to pick out of this trailer: exploding crossbow arrows, maps that take...
Activision's CEO Bobby Kotick (a
k.a.the most hated man in the video game industry) has said that the upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops will be getting the biggest investment the company has ever made in a game launch. Apparently, the game's pre-order sales alone put it up with Modern Warfare 2. This across the board, the biggest investment that weve ever made in a launch of a title, said..
Last year Activision announced a collector's edition to end all collector's editions
Night vision goggles came with the $149 SKU of Modern Warfare 2. Looks like they're preparing to do something similar all over again. US retailer buy.com (good name for a website, right?) has listed Hardened and Prestige editions for the upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops. It seems impossible that Activision woul
Yesterday we posted a video which seemed to suggest that Modern Warfare 2 (and presumably the franchise as a whole) was on the verge of getting some kind of subscription fee
But it's not. Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling clarified: For the record, nobody has to pay to play COD or MW2 multiplayer, nor will they. Josh Olin of Treyarch had a similar thing to say regarding Call Of..
Another Call Of Duty game. Fantastic, right? Well, yes, apparently. We didn't think Call Of Duty Black Ops would ever make this list either, but everything we've seen of the game over the past 12-months has truly stunned us. For a while now we've been discussing how the fallout from Infinity Ward might affect the team from Treyarch...
If you like Call Of Duty (you probably do) and Eminem (you probably do), then you're going to dig Treyarch's new trailer for Call Of Duty: Black Ops, which features a mix of both
The tune's called "Won't Back Down" and it's from Eminem's new record "Recovery". We dig it. Check out more Call Of Duty: Black Ops through here.
Do you know what's totally not a big announcement? Timed exclusive DLC
In fact, it's one of my personal pet-hates in this video game industry. A timed exclusive — for DLC. Really? Does that have any factor in purchasing intent. When it comes to Call Of Duty, the answer is, probably, yes. So it was with a wry smile Microsoft announced they have...
Activision wants you to know that they've signed up a range of world-leading music artists for a pile of their upcoming releases, including Call Of Duty: Black Ops, DJ Hero 2, Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock and True Crime
Of all those titles, music by Usher, Eminem, Soundgarden, Pharrell Williams and David Guetta makes sense in two. "Activisions autumn titles are set to give gamers an..
Call Of Duty: Black Ops' campaign will not be playable in co-op according to Treyarch's Mark Lamia
He explained that "single-player is the epic, cinematic, seat-of-your-pants thrill ride that you star in," while the game will offer seperate, more focused co-op modes for up to four players. It's sounding more like Black Ops' co-op mode will be like Modern Warfare 2's Spec-Ops, but Lamia..
It's hard to deny the value of a game that can provide excellent single-player, multiplayer and co-operative campaigns
On the whole, the Call Of Duty titles typically manage that Neapolitan of experiences, without particularly shirking quality in any area. The announcement of Call Of Duty: Black Ops' four-player co-operative mode is strengthened by Treyarch's decision to have a full, separate team..
As part of an embargo-lift around the world today, Treyarch's revealed that their upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops title will feature four-player online co-op
Speaking at an Activision press-conference earlier in the week, Treyarch's Mark Lamia declared: "The game will also feature distinct multiplayer and co-op modes, and though specifics regarding our co-op mode have not yet been revealed I..
VG247's posted up a heap of Call Of Duty: Black Ops screenshots, aswell as some hands-on impressions if that's your bag
The screens showcase a variety of environments, confirming that the upcoming Treyarch shooter will be a mixed bag of locales. The whole thing's looking very pretty too.
Well we've been saying it for a while, and it sounds like Treyarch truly believe it -- emerging from the shadows of the Infinity Ward love-affair are Treyarch, a developer who has been nothing but loyal and dignified in their development duties
But perhaps tired of being shoved under the rug by their counter-parts, Treyarch's clearly ready to take the helm, and shout from the rooftops about their..
Was that a guy hanging from a crashing helicopter? Did he just jump through a window? Was that an explosive arrow for goodness sake? This debut trailer for Call Of Duty: Black Ops is every inch a winner
We've said many times on this site (and we're not afraid of saying it again) that we truly believe Treyarch's Call Of Duty: Black Ops will outshine last year's Modern Warfare 2 release from..
USA Today's dropped some new details on Treyarch's upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops title
According to mixed reports, the SR-71 seen in the game's trailer will be controllable - though the wording is very vague and more recent updates suggest you'll just be giving orders to ground troops, not controlling the plane itself. In terms of weapons, there...
At an Activision investor call yesterday, the company's CEO Bobby Kotick confirmed that the Call Of Duty franchise has delivered over 17 million map packs
And those figures don't even include the numbers for the Modern Warfare 2 map pack which launched on the Playstation Network this week. The businessman was talking about the multi-pronged strategy...
Well would you look at that: Activision's once again hedging their bets on Call Of Duty: Black Ops shifting a billion copies, so they want to charge you the extra-fiver that Modern Warfare 2 got away with
That's right folks - forget the RRP standard of £49.99 for new video games, 'cos Activision wants you to stump up £54.99. Of course, retailers such as GAME have already slashed £10.00 off the..
Forget all the Infinity Ward drama, Treyarch's next foray into the Call Of Duty franchise is upon us: Call Of Duty: Black Ops will launch on the 9th November - presumably to gangs of screaming children queuing at the door of their local GameStop. The trailer doesn't really say much - but it does give plenty to excited about. A scene from the inside of an armed helicopter, an..
We get criticised for being a little jaded about the Call Of Duty franchise here at PushSquare, but Treyarch's upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops has us excited
Not only is it coming from a development team who are constantly shrugged off by their fanbase [the point being that they have something to prove], the speculated Vietnam-to-Cold War plotline sounds rather interesting. Treyarch's boss Mark..
We told you it was going to be called Call Of Duty: Black Ops didn't we? Well now it's official
That is according to the website Activision's just launched which states as much. The site notes that the game's due for release on November 9th, 2010 - and well that's about it. But - we'll just go out on a limb here and predict that the game will feature guns. GameTrailers TV are set to reveal the..
