Treyarch has responded to questions asked by it’s followers on Twitter. A follower asked if you can “change the storyline by the choices you make”.
Yes…One way we are doing this is through Strike Force levels, which are new to Call of Duty and introduce, non-linear/sandbox-style gameplay to the single-player storyline for the first time.
This is how they work – at several points, the head of special forces will address you and let you know that a conflict has arisen (a “proxy war,” happening parallel to the main storyline) and that you need to handle it. You’ll choose your mission and be inserted into the action. Once you’re in, you’ll be in a sandbox map and be required to achieve several objectives.
Of course, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Hit the jump for more details.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is currently due for all major platforms this November.
