Call of Duty: Black Ops II

  • Released on Nov 18, 2012
  • By Treyarch for PC, Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360


[edit] Background

The stage for the Black Ops sequel is set in the year 2025 amidst an escalating cold war between the US and China. America's defense network is compromised by a hacker attack, and suddenly the country is besieged by its own army drones that have fallen under the control of the mysterious Menedez.

As David Mason, son of the hero from the first Black Ops title, you must fend off the threat of robotic walkers and remote controlled aircraft as you uncover the truth behind Menedez.

[edit] Game Play

Your performance and choices made during missions will have an effect in the overall branching single-player storyline. The campaign will feature new "Strike Force" scenarios featuring RTS (real-time strategy) elements where you can control both human and robotic units in "sandbox" battlefields.

And yes, there will be a zombie survival mode.

[edit] Features

  • HD Experience: The title features the most advanced textures, lighting and shadowing systems in series history, all of which are on full display on Wii U.
  • Second-Screen Gameplay: Utilizing Wii U’s second-screen experience with the Wii U GamePads™, Call of Duty: Black Ops II players can join the action in a full Call of Duty experience from the second-screen. Plus, with the state of the art Wii Touchscreen, gamers can view multiplayer maps, call in score streaks and choose loadouts.
  • Expanded Functionality: Players have the option of using Wii U’s split-screen functionality to use both the GamePad™ and the Wii U Pro controller. Wii U also supports up to four controllers, including the Nintendo Wii Remote™ and Nunchuck.
  • Controller Choices: Use the GamePad touch screen to customize controls in real-time, or switch at any time to use another controller of your choice, including:
  • Wii Remote
  • Classic Controller Pro
  • Game Pad
  • WiiU Pro Controller
  • All-New Create-A-Class: Create-a-class has been re-imagined, introducing players to a new “pick-10” allocation system, allowing an unprecedented number of combinations of create-a-class content. Players no longer have to take content from each category; instead, trade items from one category for extra items in another – any combination of 10 items makes almost anything possible.
  • New Score Streaks: Score Streaks reward players for helping their team win the game: capturing flags, defending your teammate with an assault shield, getting kills and assists are all examples of actions that help your team win and thus give you score. Each action has a different value and can influence the theater of operations.
  • eSports on Wii U via League Play: Competition is fun at any level, which is why Treyarch has introduced League Play, offering skill-based matchmaking and seasonal ladders. Play a small number of matches to get your skill rating, and from there, you’ll be placed into a division with players of similar skill. Keep winning and you’ll move up in rank – steady progress will move you up the ladder and into upper divisions. Skill-based matchmaking ensures that you are challenged but not out-gunned. League play is for everyone. Additionally, CODcasting is part of the mix, allowing fans to commentate their favorite games.
  • Upgraded Weapons, Attachments and Equipment: Near-future warfare means upgrades in technology that soldiers will use in the field. Additionally, weapon perks are now built into the attachments.
  • More Multiplayer: Call of Duty: Black Ops II on Wii U includes Challenges, Core & Party Game Modes, Custom Games, Combat Training, Theater Enhancements, Emblem Editor and Prestiging.
