[UPDATE] The new mode is called Free Run. The asymmetrical mode takes the form of a Titanfall-looking time trial course full of challenges that task you to use the game's new movement abilities. The courses get progressively more difficult, and can be "punishing" at higher levels. In addition, this mode is available right away, you don't have to unlock it.

The video has now ended. When the archive version is available, we'll embed it here.

Activision's "Black Ops Fridays" livestream series continues today with a new broadcast that's starting now.
