Call of Duty Black Ops 2: New Multiplayer Details On Game Modes, Challenges And More
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is shaping up to be a fantastic game, and I know it’s funny in the sense, we say this about every CoD, but this genuinely looks good especially when tweaks and balancing is concerned. Treyarch means business and David Vonderhaar has detailed some important information about the game at Treyarch Studios to MP1st.
Treyarch recently revealed the complete Zombies trailer for Black Ops 2 which no doubt, must have hyped most of you up. And why wouldn’t it? It did look fantastic. In case, you missed that, you can check it out over here.
Earlier, in World at War and Black Ops, the zombies mode was just a co-op survival mode, but Treyarch seems to be taking it to an all new level. According to IGN, the game will also have other new zombie based modes, like a full fledged multiplayer, and, of course, the old survival mode.
The game comes out on November 13 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Check out the details below:
At launch, three modes will be playable with up to three different teams within the regular assortment of playlists. These three teams can be made up of three to four players. Treyarch calls these “3×3′s” and “3X4′s.” Multi-team game modes include:
- Team Deathmatch
- Kill Confirmed
Party Games essentially replaces Wager Matches from the original Black Ops. However, players will now be able to earn XP and rank up in the regular progression. Game types include:
- Gun Game
- Sticks and Stones (Yes, the crossbow and ballistic knife are returning.)
- One in the Chamber
Combat Training is now integrated into the main game and will include three different modes at launch.
- Bootcamp – In Bootcamp, players can rank up from level 1 to level 10 while gaining full experience. This playlist is solely made up of the Team Deathmatch game mode and pits one team of humans and bots against another team of human and bots. This eases the level of expectation placed on someone who may be new to the game.
- Objective – Here, players can rank past level 10, but will not earn the full amount of XP. Once again, two teams made up of both humans and bots are pitted against each other in various objective-based game modes.
- Bot Stomp – No XP is earned in Bot Stomp. Quite simply, a team of humans is pitted agains a team of bots – great for practice, map knowledge, and nailing down the basics of Call of Duty.
The game will have challenges for each and everything you do like using different guns. You can also get in-game rewards after completing some of them.
