Call of Duty: Black Ops tackles a whole new era as Black Ops plunges you into the murky height of the Cold War and history's most secretive battles. The world's most popular first person shooter places you in the most dangerous conflict zones of the late '60s.
From the jungles of Vietnam to the snowy wastes of the Ural mountains, you and your team in Call of Duty: Black Ops must operate behind enemy lines and using only the limited technology of the time. Luckily this includes air support such as the SR-71 Blackbird stealth plane, as well as deadly attack helicopters and armoured personnel carriers.
Like any Call of Duty game the multiplayer of Call of Duty: Black Ops will set the standard for all other console games, with enhanced customisation tools, playable vehicles and a revamped scoring system. There will also be a unique four-player co-operative mode, allowing you to experience some of the most mysterious theatres of war in astonishing new detail.
Retro Warfare: Call of Duty explodes the myths of the Cold War as you join a team of Black Ops soldiers caught up in the fight against communism in Vietnam and beyond.
Ammu-Nation: Use new special ammo including an explosive crossbow, Dragon's Breath flame rounds for your shotgun and a range of other period weapons.
Twisted Metal: Take the controls of the iconic SR-71 Blackbird as you direct operations from high above or jump into an attack chopper in Vietnam for some close-up action.
Online Perks: Create-a-Class 2.0 customisation tool lets you personalise your online battles even more, with new perks and revamped rules for killstreaks.
Team Player: Online four-player co-operative mode lets you team up with fellow players as you take on the might of the Soviet military machine together
Black Ops II
The game continues the tale of Frank Woods, hero of the original Black Ops, as well as various members of the Mason family. The action largely takes place in the year 2025, where a new Cold War is raging and the tools of war have been suitably upgraded, with battle drones on land and in the air, and an arsenal that packs a larger, more accurate punch than the weapons of today.
The historical battles of the original Black Ops do still make an appearance, with events spanning from 1980's Afghanistan right through to the near-future war. Different generations of the Mason family will fight in different eras, but all the missions seem to centre around one man - the new, mysterious villain Raul Menendez.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II promises some big shifts to the traditional Call of Duty gameplay. The campaign mode now features non-linear and branching storylines, where the decisions you make and actions you take informing how the game plays out. Whether it's choosing one option over another, or simply failing to save a single hostage, all your actions have consequences - the biggest one being you can play the game time and again to see the different outcomes unfold!
Add to this more options for how you battle, with the 'run and gun' approach now joined by the chance to drive cars, man gun turrets, ride horses and fly fighter jets. There's also the new Strike Force mode, open-world missions with a series of checkpoints to achieve and the chance to swap between characters - including playing as an all-controlling general. It's like an open-world sandbox, a real-time strategy and a multiplayer map all in one - and it can also affect the outcome of the game!
The multiplayer mode returns, bigger, better, and more adaptable to different skill levels and playing styles for a more inclusive experience. And Zombies also rise from the grave once again, running in multiplayer for the first time for even more ways to defeat the undead!
