Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Looks Kind of Fun

If broshooters are your thing, you can’t really get much more bang for you buck than Call of Duty. Even with a new title releasing every year, there’s enough ranking and unlocking packed into the games to keep you busy for a while.

While the Call of Duty series has been waning in the eyes of the gaming public for while (to those of us “in the know”, at any rate), I’ve always appreciated Treyarch’s willingness to stick their necks out and deviate from the formula set up by Infinity Ward. Things like zombies, crazy Cold War conspiracies and now trips to the future are all helping to keep the series somewhat fresh while Modern Warfare approaches stagnation. The new multiplayer trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 shows you how you’ll be fighting in the future of 2025. If you thought that Call of Duty needed more ridiculous kill-streak rewards, then you’re in for a treat.

Walking tanks and helicopter drones and suicidal UAVs, oh my! The only thing missing from this trailer is the crazy customization that Treyarch packed into the original Black Ops, but I’m sure all of that will be revealed in another trailer closer to the release date.

So, what do you think? Does the multiplayer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 do it for you? Is it worth going black to the future?

  1. Looks fun, didn’t realize there would be that much “future” stuff in multiplayer. Now lets seem zombies, then a live action trailer with some celebrities.

    On a related note, CoD doesn’t have a good history with keeping MP balanced. I fear for the controllers of CoD players once walking tanks and helicopter drones come into play.

  3. My roomates are still playing Black Ops, so if they get this for the ps3 I’m sure I’ll play it a little. Won’t be a PC purchase for me though.

  4. It actually grabbed my attention quite well. It seems like it might be fun and I really do have to give a lot of respect to Treyarch for taking such a bold move in a different direction. But I enjoyed Black Ops, so perhaps this is the start of something that may do right by us. Though, with seeing this footage, the so called “community” will largely be half of them shitting all over this and why they think it sucks and is a terrible game when they’ve not even played it yet. Too many people judge based off the IW mistakes and forget that this is a Treyarch version.
