Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Features Many Robots
We’ve all heard (and probably made) the argument that the Call of Duty franchise is substandard in some way because it continually makes minor changes to the formula while iterating every year. It seems that Treyarch and Activision are looking to change that statement in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
Check out the first trailer for the game’s multiplayer, which puts a much greater emphasis on items and technology that will stun other players than previous titles. We’ve got what looks like a tomahawk that zaps guys with electricity, a turret that appears to be a microwave emitter, and other junk that looks like it’ll freak you out (and then get you killed) should you encounter it in-game.
The near-future setting also brings a lot of robots into play, with drones and attack bots floating around in any given game scenario as deployable objects by players. Like the explosive RC car of Black Ops, remotely manning drones seems to be something you’ll be doing a lot of as they gun down enemies. Pretty cool.
What do you guys think? It’s become something of a trend to hate on Call of Duty games — are you excited for what you see in the trailer below?
