These two bits of news are kind of small so I’m smushing them together to get a decent sized post out of them. Hope you don’t mind.
In news that will surprise no one, Activision has announced the existance of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, which will finally make the long rumored jump TO THE WORLD OF TOMORROW. More like 10-15 years down the line, but still. Yes, this Call of Duty will take place in the future, as the second Cold War makes its way to Los Angeles. There’s a trailer tonight airing during an NBA game but the leaked screens show tiny quadrotor remote control helicopters and a trooper in a full-face helmet with a big old gun (looking very Battlefield 2142 to me). Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will apparently be out November 13. The trailer is out now:
The Skyrim DLC, coming this summer to Xbox LIVE, is called Dawnguard. There’s really not much about this being unveiled other than the name and the fact that more details will be at E3. There’s no word of a PC or PS3 release, but as we can all recall, Bethesda and Microsoft teamed up for a timed exclusive on Skyrim DLC so I’m sure we’ll see Dawnguard on the other systems soon.
So what do you guys think of today’s two announcements? Light on actual news, yes, but speculation is still fun. Thoughts on Call of Duty going Black Ops to the future? What do you want in Dawnguard? Go!
