Skyrim Dawnguard DLC and Black Ops 2 Revealed Updated

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!

  1. Oh look, it’s Call of Duty 2142. I could really care less about a new call of duty, they are fun to play with friends sitting next to you though.

    As for Dawnguard more Elder Scrolls is never a bad thing, Even though I just hit the 60 hour mark in Skyrim after 6 months.

  2. A second cold war interesting does this mean that the infinity ward and Tryarch COD univeres have finally mereged. I just hope that this CODBO2 has drone warfare simular to HomeFront.

  3. Not sure about Blops2, after not getting MW3 I think I’m done with CoD for good now. More Skyrim is welcome. Looking forward to seeing all the nice, shiny new things Bethesda throws our way.

  4. Just saw the trailer and HOLY S**T THAT WAS EPIC. I have a feeling that it will have flashback based levels like the first game.

  5. Mitch: I believe you made a large spelling mistake in the title of this article. It is supposed to be “Black Flops”, please correct this mistake as soon as possible.

  6. Okay, I just watched that trailer and I take it back. Horses AND robots? Count me in.

  7. It’s like they told the audio dude to make it sound badass, but legit, but current, but mysterious. So he made the backtrack sound like Deus Ex HR, throwing in dubstep, adding an 8 bit part, and then throwing in Skyrim shouts at the end.

    all wtf aside, WTF?

  8. Ewww Blops trailer looks so B-Movie. Its kinda good for Treyarch, but still… I would fall back in love with the series if it was multiplayer-only and wouldn’t dent the hell out of my wallet…
