CoD: Black Ops multiplayer broken down

Wednesday, 20th October 2010 23:21 GMT By Justin Kranzl


Call of Duty: Black Ops has some heavy expectations on it. Not just from Activision Blizzard, who needs developer Treyarch to keep the money rolling in, but from online gamers looking for a new holiday season multiplayer FPS hit.

Reviews for the game – including multiplayer evaluations – are embargoed until when the game goes on sale on November 9th.

However the Inside Xbox team worked with Treyarch to present a precis of some of the changes players can expect.

Detail on some of the changes Treyarch has made – including welcome moves like preventing kills from killstreak unlocks adding to your killstreak count (say that three times in a row) – follow.

    Good news about the killstreak rewards, I’m just wondering how long it’ll take people to figure out how to fix wager matches…5-10 mins?

    I don’t see anything, it’s just a big white section or is it just me?

    @1 sad but true. The good thing about that is that those people should be in the minority. It’s like the people who boost in the free for all games now. You come across it but it’s never been a problem (at least not for me). This does look quite good though.

    I really like how they’ve just focused on improving the gameplay. Alot of the stuff that was mentioned was what pissed me off about MW2.

    @7 Oh, for God’s sake! Stop this stupid whining about the “same product”! You know it’s just the same if you would have said it about Assassin’s Creed 1 & 2. Like: quite the same graphics, same engine, same game just another setting and another plot, yeah and some tweaks too. But IT IS what makes the game different. Treyarch made lots of improvements to single and multiplayer. Watch those videos of jtag beta on youtube – there are lots of new cool features! It’s just like all the best stuff taken from MW2 and WaW then combined into one game with some new stuff added. Trolls please die starving.

    Black Ops getting more attractive to me. But this weapondesign uhhhh :x I’m also a bit disappointed because there’s no beta :(

    Remember? CoD4 had a betaphase => awesome, CoD5 had a betaphase => okay, CoD6 had no betaphase => a lot of shit appeared in the MP after a few days :(

    I hope the intern testing will help.
