Digital Concealment Systems, creator of the A-TACS family of camouflage patterns have signed a deal with Activision that includes the use of said camo patterns, currently A-TACS AU and A-TACS FG, in the just-released-today Call of Duty: Black Ops II. A-TACS is present in Black Ops II in the form of “…a playable option and integrated throughout different levels of the epic game.” This is most apparent in its use as an in-game gun camouflage.
In the year 2025, there’s huge assault walker drones, wrist-mounted grappling hooks, flight packs with wings take the place of parachutes, and special forces still use MultiCam.
Black Ops 2 drops November 13th.
The reveal trailer for zombies mode in the upcoming CoD: Black Ops 2 just came out today. Personally, I would have waited to release this until Halloween rolled around, but then again I’m also not a member of the marketing team for a billion dollar game franchise.
Man, this trailer is showing the best multiplayer for CoD yet!
That’s also the same thing I said when I saw the previous multiplayer trailers for every Call of Duty since Modern Warfare 2. Granted, it does look amazing (that’s what trailers are for, after all), and the graphics are looking pretty spiffy, but I already know I’ll like the game for roughly a month, then only jump on it occasionally until the next CoD is announced and released. It’s a vicious cycle, I know. Then again, future weapons and killstreaks and a reworked create-a-class system could prove me wrong.
Black Ops II drops November 13, 2012.
So, David S. Goyer wrote the story and Trent Reznor did the music for Black Ops 2, huh? That’s pretty exciting news! Oh, there’s also some cinematic shots and explosions and future technology and whatnot.
Call of Duty 2 drops November 13th, 2012.
This just came across the transom at the Tactical Fanboy breaking news desk. EA and Activision, the developers of Medal of Honor Warfighter and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 have confirmed that two new trailers will air Saturday, 19 May during the Champions League final.
The two games will go head to head with EA buying air time to offer viewers a first look at Medal of Honor Warfighter due to be released later this year. No details are given at this time, or at least none that I can find. Activision has announced that the spot for Black Ops 2 will be shown during the games halftime interval and show off new facets of the newest addition to the Call of Duty franchise. What that will entail is anybody’s guess. Probably more cinematics from the game, but maybe, if we’re lucky, a peek at the multiplayer aspect of the game. Who knows? Turn in and find out.
Speaking of CoD 2, have you read about this professor who got his panties in a twist over it? Relax, professor, it’s just a game.
Now back to your regularly scheduled posts.
The history of warfare has been one of innovation, trying to keep one or two steps ahead of your enemy in weapons and technology; anything to give your side the edge on the battlefield. The 20th Century alone saw dramatic leaps in war fighting technology, from the individual riflemen to nuclear weapons. What does the future have in store for the battlefields of the 21st Century? Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 explores just that with a six part mini documentary embedded in the reveal trailer. At any point in the trailer you can stop the action and have future war expert and author of Wired for War, P.W. Singer discuss the progression of technology in warfare, its uses, and what happens when the smart weapons a nation uses malfunction or –even worse- are hacked and turned against their former masters. Lt Col Oliver North USMC Ret and Major Alex Brown, U.S. Army Special Forces, weigh in with the current level of battlefield tech, its uses and capabilities. It’s really an innovative and interesting way to learn what the near future holds, not only for warfare but society in general.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 hits 13 Nov 2012.
I’m a fan of the Call of Duty franchise of games and of FPS Russia, the guy on You Tube with the fake Russian accent and all those wonderful toys, to quote The Joker from 1989s Batman. Recently I was watching one of FPS Russia’s recent videos on an armed RPV quadrotor named ‘Charlene’ when I had an ‘ah ha’ moment realizing where I had just seen another armed RPV quarotor with the name ‘Charlene’ scratched into it. Anyone else think we might hear someone sounding a lot like FPS Russia in Black Ops 2?
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is slated for release on 13 Nov 2012.
