No words. Just watch. After the break.

As promised over the weekend, Activision’s released a full trailer of Call of Duty: Black Ops.

If you were sceptical about Treyarch’s next iteration in the series, all your worries should disappear within the first 20 or so seconds of the trailer.

Plus, you’ve got dedicated servers back in for PC gamers. Major brownie points.

Go watch the trailer below, thanks to Joystiq. It really is awesome.

The game’s out worldwide on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC on November 9.

    I’ve been on Treyarch’s case since CoD 3.

    Not really that impressed with that or WaW.

    But this is it Treyarch: you did it. You actually made me a believer… for now!

    Hmmm, I don’t want to get anyone Flaming mad at me, but COD has been on the Decline, for me anyway. I am a HUGE single player, not really into all the Hard Core MP, online crowd. So after learning that MW2 had a VERY short Single Player experience, I waited and bought the Hardened Edition for $19.99 US.

    I am Hoping that Black Ops well have a ROBUST Single Player Experience, one that is longer the 6-8 hours. If it turns out that the Single Player Experience is nothing more then a simple tutorial again for the Online MP Experience then it will be another pass or at least wait till it is Super Cheap like MW2.

    I really don’t understand the HUGE fanboyism for the COD franchise. The Willingness to shell out Big Bucks for an Underwhelming experience, and continue shelling out Big Bucks for Under par DLC. Since I don’t Multi-Play anymore I must be missing the whole point, so I am ignorant on the MP experience. Maybe it is the Best MP experience ever????? And that makes it worth all the Money???? For Me I just hope it has a nice Lengthy Single Player Experience, but I suppose I am the only out there that wants a Great Single Player Experience on a the Next COD or MW??????
    Oh Well…

    @8 If you like Singleplayer that much, why don’t you buy a decent PC and ArmA 2? There you can create your own singleplayer mission or even campaign with vehicles, destruction and great graphics or download levels from others and play it. Some of them are just masterpieces.
    If you like these types of games you can’t expect more then 6 hours in Call OF Duty franchise + Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 singleplayer campaign was just bad or awful or worse FPS singleplayer ever created in my opinion. Especially the story. These days developers don’t make big games with more then 6-7 hours.

    @9 Unfortunately the Economy Tanked and I can’t afford a new PC. I have 9 outdated PC’s now, and the last one I could afford was the Netbook I am typing on Now. Just can’t afford to upgrade every 6 months any more…Sigh I miss those days…Anyway, you are right PC can give me much more when it comes to Single Player offerings, they just won’t play on any of my outdated PC’s. To be honest I just can’t take the Chance that I spend $50.00 on a PC game and it not work because I don’t have the latest drivers, latest Video Card, latest anything, because here in the US once you open it you can’t take it back. At least with the Consoles, I know the game I am buying, will work.
    I wish I could go out and build an Awesome PC Rig, but those days are gone now, that money is going to pay the mortgage, and keep me in the house, because my Discretionary income has shrunk from buying $400 High Power Graphic cards, to $60 Console Games here in the US, those good old days are gone for me, Sigh!

    Edit: What is really Sad I have gone from High End Games like Crysis, to Games from BigFishGames.com that are about breaking blocks and time management and cost $6.99 US….SIGH…Though I am Hoping the Netbook Version of Torchlight will run on my Netbook..

    Nice. Like Cullen, I’ve been critical of Treyarch’s CoD output since 3, but this actually looks pretty good.

    One problem though – I do NOT want to pilot vehicles. IW realised this didn’t work a long time ago, and Treyarch should leave it well alone. I’ve never been a fan of vehicles in FPS titles (Halo notwithstanding) and I’d much prefer this to stick to what it does best – the First Person Shooter bit.

    #14 5 years ago
  15. Raining_Upwards

    @13, I guess that’s just Treyarch giving all the IW nut-huggers a big ‘Fuck You’.

    Although to be fair, it would have been cool for them to put it at the end of the trailer and seen how many average Joe’s exclaimed ‘OMFG!!! It’s Modern Warfare 3!!!’.

    #15 5 years ago
  16. SplatteredHouse

    Good grief! Pardon my amazement and apologies for causing a start, but if it isn’t another CoD game. Promoted like all the others, the same as the one that came before, and a little bit more flashy than the one that arrived before that.

    Thank goodness for the likes of Six Days in Fallujah, and with luck, Medal of Honor. these look to be the ones most likely to deliver something beyond the worn-out Acti-mold. Oh, I forgot. They changed the story a bit, because THIS time you’re a rogue. Really. They’re new games, so unproven, but, they’re new games, built by fresh teams with their own direction on what they want to deliver, and how.

  17. Badger

    I think it looks great. Maybe even better than MW2, from the trailer at least. The only thing I didn’t like was the fugly explosions. But I can look over that. I’ll be getting it as long as I don’t need to remortgage my house for it.

    Sometimes you just need a game you don’t have to think about too much and blast your way through. Nothing wrong with that.

  18. drewbles82

    I think WAW was pretty good, especially the way you’d shoot people with some weapons, just rips them apart.
    The only thing i hate bout these games is the multiplayer. Not everyone wants to play online and if you wanna play against ur friends, hook up 8tvs, 8xboxs etc, its 2 much. We wanna be able to have 4 vs 4. You can have 4 splitscreen, so why not system link it as well. For me if a game has LAN party qualities, then the game lives on for a long time, fed up of Halo.

    i haven’t really liked the treyarch CODs to be honest. but given how badly infinity ward dropped the ball on MW2 i think this is treyarchs chance to shine. and i’ve really been looking forward to this game. and still am. but every one waxing lyrical about how awsome this trailer is, needs to catch a grip of themselves. it’s a generic COD trailler. prety much the same as every other COD trailler.

    DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE.

    i’m still hoping it’ll be the spiritual sucsesor to COD4 i’ve been waiting for. but it’s to early now to say for sure.

    It is not stupid, militaries across the globe still use crossbows for a multitude of things, like tagging targets (which is what is happening in that clip), setting up zip wires, probing and detonating trip wires and booby traps.

    So no, not stupid at all.

    ‘Meh, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

    @Frost

    I feel your pain. I used to spend 300-500 a month easy on games. Now I am lucky if I can get one a month, and even those are usualy used/older/cheaper.

    What I do is play wow/EQII/or PSU. I get a hella lot of hours for 10/15usd/month.

    If my PC couldn’t run Wow/EQII. I would do PSU. If not your thing, Gamefly. I think you can get 2 choices at a time for 25usd/month. The turn around time isn’t bad, and their “keep it now” prices are very good. I have bought games for 35usd that were still 60usd at the stores. And best of all, you know you like it and you know it works because you just rented it and have it in your hand. Free shipping both ways of course, and when you do buy a game from them they send you the box and books in the mail(again free ship) and because they keep that stuff on the shelf, everything is in mint condition.

    Gamefly is the way to go, no doubt. Play CoD, return it after your done with the SP, your out very little. Infact vs buying the games new, beating them and then selling them back towards your next game, Gamefly is buttloads cheaper. And you can play more games.

    I hope Tourchlight works on your netbook. There are so many replay hours in that game it is crazy, and if ya got it on sale at Steam, prolly only ran you 10usd. Great Value.

    great trailer. stupid, dull fpshootin´ action. love that. looks like they really bring some epic moments. i got a very good feeling for this one. i enjoyed waw much more than mw2 and i really can´t understand why people seem not to like it as much. to me it is definitely the better game…matter of taste i believe. i agree with the guy hoping for a spiritual successor for cod4 – and the trailer pretty much promises that imo. treyarch needs to do it right. there will be so much competition this fall with reach, brink, moh, crysis…for a fps fan this fall/winter looks very promising. i´m a little afraid by that fact. i need to keep up with my non digital social life as well . i can already feel some serious leisure time pressure dangling over my head like damocles sword

  33. Erthazus

    @29 they are very lethal for hunting. Read carefully, but here it’s exploding… There is a big difference in using cianide and explosion arrows. No one will use crossbow for explosions, thats fucking stupid.

    good hunting i say. Thats a fantasy. Modern Warfare was always a blockbuster fantasy and has nothing to do with the reality. Helicopters flying killing stuff, war starting without a summit, Russians with M9 with american accents, with airports that is not from Real Moscow airport, with terrorist statue in Red Square. You only need to be an american to make this.

    #33 5 years ago
  34. Petulant Radish

    @33

    You are the one that is incredibly stupid. The crossbow in the game is based on a design of a military grade crossbow. Crossbows are used by special ops for accurately placing from range a small, but lethal, explosive charge on a target, taking them and surrounding marks out with one shot.

    Just because your lack of knowledge on a subject makes you look like an idiot, it does not mean that the makers and researchers on a game are.

    #34 5 years ago
  35. bytemap

    Not bad looking, looks like they decided to copy from a formula that worked on Infinity Ward with Trailer execution, development, story (from cut-scenes provided) – use of snow scape. The thing that had me before about Treyarch was their use of sounds and how it was like bb-guns shooting instead of real guns.

    Either way, I’ll try it out, only if a friend convinces me like before. Not because I shelled out crazy money for this. Plus Makes sense they put their name in there because they don’t want to confuse others that Infinity Ward had their hand in this. Activision wants to stay clear of the mess that happened and keep their cash cow flowing.

    That was definitely a kick ass trailer. However, it looked alot like Modern Warfare 2 to me. It seems Treyarch have finally decided to go the way of the tiger (Michael Bay). I’ll see how it compares to MoH when the time comes.

    @47 and i never said that to be a blockbuster is bad. Read carefully again. I just said that you don’t need to go something beyond realism. Choppers explode? Alright. But such thing is just ridiculous in the military shooter.

    Sadly, you just know they’ve probably tried those things for hunting…

    @49 It’s cyanide-tipped arrows such as suppressed handguns.

    Look at the trailer how that shit explodes and not only that, it uses time. Like a cheap blockbuster movie. 5 with guns versus 1 with crossbow with ultra bomb on the arrow.

    and it’s a Vietnam era. Sounds very believable, even if it is a 1973 year or during the final years of “Vietnamization”.

    @Erthazus

    It quite clearly states that the crossbow is also used for emergency mineclearing. That involves tying an explosive chord to the end of the bolt, firing it across an open area, and detonating it remotely to clear a path.

    I know for a fact that US forces have also used those exact chords in an offensive capacity, although I’m not sure how they delivered it.

    You might think that making a delayed charge on a crossbow is a stupid thing to do, but the military doesn’t.

    All in all I think you’re missing the point though. If Treyarch think that a crossbow works for the game they have in mind, they should most certainly add that.

    If we go back to your darling BC2, you have a tracer gun and a Tommy gun, neither of which belong in a modern, realistic shooter.

    #53 5 years ago
  54. Erthazus

    @53 Tommy gun? O_o Lets not go to the MW2, because half of guns are not from the modern era at all.

    Prooflinks then?

    I know what is crossbow. No one NEVER used this for killing people with explosives. It’s stupid and never was and especially in Vietnam, even in the years of Vietnamization.
    Here it is even worse: 5 vs 1 in the trailer (!)

    Don’t try to explain me until i will see prooflinks. No one use it and thats a fact from prooflinks. I have the entire encyclopedia for military weapons.
    Cianide is the only option for explosives ONLY. Thats it. You can use it like a distraction or FEAR and movies in holywood like to use crossbows with the mini atom bomb.

    Looks awesome imo. Hope the games whole OST is like the music in this trailer, it really sucked in MW2.

    @1

    Explosions aren’t 2D. Unless you were talking about the napalm, in which case even the real thing looks kind of 2D when you watch old war footage of it. It really looks like sheets of fire falling onto the ground.

    #58 5 years ago
  59. DeSpiritusBellum

    @54 Actually MW2 features more modern weapons than BC2, so I fail to see what you’re saying. Not that it even matters, since most respected militaries prefer to rely on tried and true weapons systems, even more so in the special forces. Spetsnaz were still using 1950′s assault rifles in 1990.

    I have no way of knowing if anyone ever fired det chord at an enemy in Vietnam using a crossbow, but categorically denying it like you do is pretty stupid, since no one tracks every engagement in a war. Either way, it doesn’t matter. All games are subject to artistic enterpretation. Just as DICE stick a Tommygun (Thompson .45 submachinegun) and a tracer pistol into their games, Treyarch can stick whatever they want in their game. It’s a question of what works or doesn’t work.

    It’s not a question of realism, there are no realistic wargames, and there would be no point in making one. Real war isn’t very entertaining. It’s all about making it fun.
