Call of Duty: Black Ops announced; trailer released

Posted in Activision, PC, PlayStation 3, Trailer, Video, Xbox 360 with tags , on May 1, 2010 by James Love

Treyarch have unveiled the next game in the Call of Duty franchiese, Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Following on from their last game, World at War, Black Ops’ trailer showcases lots of warfare very quickly, with what indeed looks like Vietnam, however the game we think might take a leaf out of Assassin’s Creed book, as the trailer indicates you are a soldier who is being made to relive past memories.

There was also what looks like a Russian cosmonaut briefly too, with the game possibly spanning the whole of the Cold War.

Check out the trailer from GTTV after the jump.

Modern Warfare 2 to get Nazi Zombies? Not a chance

Posted in Activision, PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 with tags , , , on February 24, 2010 by James Love

Robert Bowling has confirmed to IGN that there are no plans to bring the insanely popular Nazi Zombies mode from Call of Duty: World at War over to Modern Warfare 2.

“There will be no Nazis or zombies in any piece of Modern Warfare 2 downloadable content,” said Bowling, however with the next Call of Duty coming this year from Treyarch, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it rear its head in the new game.
