Black Ops 2 multiplayer: watch VG247 play it to death

Tuesday, 14th August 2012 07:02 GMT By Dave Cook

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was playable at a pre-Gamescom 2012 event hosted by Treyarch and Activision. Watch VG247′s Dave Cook test out four new maps and a lot of new guns, score streaks, perks and more.

There is a lot to say about the big changes Treyarch has made to multiplayer in Black Ops 2, but the video below will give you a good idea of how it all works. While the gameplay below may look aesthetically similar to previous Call of Duty titles, there are actually many changes this year.

Check out the video below, then hit up our Black Ops 2 multiplayer impressions for all the info on what’s new.

    What’s the deal with the red squares? Is that a perk or a feature or what?

    It’s like they took the worst feature of Battlefield and made it worse.

    @3 It’s a special sight.

    It’s not worse. It’s absolutely brilliant from what I played.

    @4, I’m not too keen on “shoot here” markers.

    If you can’t see a target then you can’t see them, the game shouldn’t be drawing a box over them for you.

    Looks like another competently average COD game.

    still hasnt made me interested in it. Get rid of infinite respawn in single player and i maybe interested. No skill at all in those games.

    I gave up on CoD SP after CoD4. Too much of a vaguely interactive rollercoaster I feel little control over, oh and +1 for the respawn/push forward to trigger point mechanics. Occasionally dip back in for the MP though and this is starting to pique my interest. I missed MW3 out completely.

    I’ve had to switch the videos to private at the request of Activision. We’re working on a new, single 60-second edit. It’ll be up soon.

    That’s ridiculous. Respawns allow people who aren’t so good to continue playing and eventually complete a level/game. If you’re good, you can just beat it without having to respawn, or you can manually reset the level if you want a single-life playthrough.

    Unless you’re talking about the AI of course. In which case, meh – doesn’t bother me that much.

    @11 Oh FFS. We’ll just go and watch gameplay elsewhere then.

    Why publishers still think they can police the internet is beyond me.

    @14 I downloaded them just in case. I noticed that you’re only allowed to upload 1 min clips. Could I take a minute clip from one of your games and give your channel credit on the video and in the description? I just want to commentate over one aspect of it.
