Treyarch's upcoming military shooter opens up Microsoft's E3 2010 press conference, and we've got the details
Microsoft opened up its 2010 E3 press conference with a bang; multiple explosions, in fact, thanks to a look at a demo of Treyarch's upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops. The two-part demo gave us a taste of the dramatic swings in mood and action for Black Ops, which puts the action on so-called military "deniable ops."
The demo level took place in what looked to be a South Asian jungle, and the opening portion featured some tunnel action--with the player crawling through a series of claustrophobia-inducing tunnels and encountering a series of close-quarters encounters along the way. Eventually, the soldiers made their way out of the tunnels and encountered an open encampment, full of enemy soldiers and heavy equipment like tanks and, most importantly, a Hind helicopter.
After popping a few grenades to create some destruction (and distraction), the player ran down into the clearing, dealt with the remaining enemies, and headed off to commandeer the Hind. You and your copilot take off and are greeted by the gorgeous jungle environments. Unfortunately, you've got no time to enjoy the scenery because you'll be beset by enemy fire as you wind your way around a river bed. The Hind is armed with missiles and a wicked machine gun cannon on its nose, and you'll put both to good use in your escape, taking out bridges, antiaircraft positions, enemy helicopters, and, finally, what looks to be an oil pipeline.
To say the least, the resulting explosions from all this rampant destruction were visually impressive, as were some of the close calls the helicopter managed during enemy missile strikes. The mix of gritty in-your-face combat on the ground and exciting action sequences in the air also made an impression, and we can't wait to get our hands on Black Ops later this week to see how Treyarch's latest game is coming along.
Wow.... thats awesome man.. Really want this one. It will be faaar better than MW2. In my sense COD is back again....
My expectations arent extremely high for a game thats gonna offer weapons and tools from around 1985. Although some stuff they've shown are so not from that era.
@100stars: You can't be serious. Define "path of destruction". Do it now, or your post is utterly pointless.
Since Modern Warefare 1, it's just been the same old same old with a few features added in. Similer multiplayer, the campaign has boring objectives, either to advance or defend. This is the reason I'm not getting the game.
@aaron Im sure body decals were removed from MW2 for performance purposes. Either that or the devs didnt find it too appealing to see people shoot dead players on the floor just to see what kind of mess they could make. Yea, I hope they expand on the gritty tone they set with WaW. I found the game to be a lot more engaging when you rush through a narrow hallway to place a bomb, only to find that the man taking point gets blown in half by a Betty. Kinda gets to you though. *shudder*
Treyarch made the last good call of duty game, and I trust them to save call of duty from the path of destruction infinity ward set it on.
All i'm saying is that if Treyarch makes another nazi zombies type mode, and decent multiplayer, Black Ops will be a lot funner than MW2.
As a Call of duty fan i had always see tha Infinity ward make better Cod games than Treyarch, so Treyarch is obliged to create a COD game as Good as MW2 or better,otherwise they will be doomed.
There screw up a lot at World at War MP... hopefully this time they improve it. Otherwise IW will still rule the COD.
Treyarch has alot of potential with this. I hope the campaign is long like halflife or at least as long as COD2. MW2 was lame how people who get blown up by grenades fall with out a mark on them. And when dumping a clip of a Glock-18 in somebodies face i see there face as clean as day with no holes in it. This game will be gritty from what I can tell so far and it has the potential to beat every fps out there.
Its gonna blow MW2 out the water. The environments look better in terms of design and setting than mw2 and it should have similar multiplayer. The whole atmosphere of desperation that I got from the e3 trailer really adds a lot of value for me. Cant wait.
I hope they will do the great job as they always do,but if they mess up i really dont know what else i will play than cod titles
Sir Brian just typed, "headed off to commandeer the Hind" and "taking out bridges, antiaircraft positions, enemy helicopters, and, finally, what looks to be an oil pipeline." IT MEANS WE WILL BE ABLE TO GET actually INTO A VEHICLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN CoD HISTORY! Ok, maybe not, CoD 3 had some vehicle missions. But the second sentence, IT MEANS Treyarch awakened their minds AND ARE NOW MAKING A DESTRUCTION ENGINE JUST LIKE DICE's FrostBite!!!
The single player looks good, as usual. I just hope the multiplayer isn't overdone like MW2. I'd prefer a more simple multiplayer experience than having to do unlocks, have people end the game with cheap nukes and the like. Just isn't fun to me.
I agree both of the new games look really good. Its going to be gameplay for the win this time around. Guess we'll see
Treyarch doesn't break it's arm, patting itself on the back or sneak around trying to undermine the company that funds it's projects. They don't want to be rock stars or industry celebs. They just want to make the best CoD games ever made and that's exactly what they do.
@dylan417 Best joke eva! Wait...you're serious aren't you...lolz you forgot about "cough cough" kinect "cough"...
@dylan417, They opened with a multi-platform game yeh, but then added that we get everything about it first... BOO to gamespot though, crapped out on their E3 showing, watched it on E3's youtube, live feed and stuff.
I love how Microsoft opened up with a multiplatform game, this shows that all they have to show is Gears 3 and Halo Reach. Sony on the other hand...
