Tuesday, 7th September 2010 10:06 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Activision’s announced some of the voice talent for Call of Duty: Black Ops, whilst also confirming a return for Gary Oldman.

Oldman previously appeared in World at War as Russian WWII soldier Viktor Reznov, and will return for the Cold War-era shooter.

Also confirmed for Black Ops is Apollo 13 actor Ed Harris, who will voice one of the main characters in the game, CIA agent Jason Hudson.

Activision’s also announced it has brought on Dark Knight writer  David Goyer to “provide script consultation and story development support.”

“Oldman, Harris and Goyer are considered some of Hollywood’s finest talents and they perfectly complement Call of Duty: Black Ops’ ambitious and immersive single player experience,” said Treyarch boss Mark Lamia.

“Their contributions have helped us to push the boundaries of our story telling and character development far beyond anything we have ever attempted before in the franchise.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops launches on November 10 for PS3, 360, PC, Wii and DS.

    MW2 had 50 Pence, Black Ops has Oldman and Harris. Nuff said.

    It just means they get to name drop somebody who looked over the script in a lunch break.

    Will they ever make a COD game or any war game from the perspective of the Arabs or WW2 era Germans, defending the world from the Evil Americans. Politically incorrect on so many levels, but a change of pace.

    @9 It was a movie made by the guys who do South Park. It’s rather funny actually.
