We have some good news for Black Ops 2 fans now, as Activision and Treyarch have confirmed that a new trailer is about to unveiled soon. Following on from the first trailer which was unveiled at the basketball playoffs, the second trailer for the game will be shown during the Champions League Final, which takes place on Saturday.
As most of you are already aware by now, Black Ops 2 will be based in a futuristic setting, a stark comparison to the original game which was set during the Cold War. The new trailer is likely to again feature elements of the story mode seen in the first trailer, although we doubt that a UK trailer will show off multiplayer for the first time ever.
Everyone is waiting to see what multiplayer looks like of course, but we imagine that we’ll have to wait until E3 to see the first glimpse of that, as well as the new zombie mode. Perhaps this is Treyarch and Activision’s way of saying ‘we love our UK fans’ as well, as it now gives them the chance to watch a new Black Ops 2 trailer live during a major sporting event, just like the US had with the playoffs.
There’s no set time for when the trailer will air, but it will be sometime during the adverts shown between the duration of the match. Both ITV1 and Sky Sports 1 HD will show the trailer, so it gives everyone the chance to see it at the same time if they don’t have a subscription to Sky.
There still seems to be some criticisms about the choice to take Black Ops 2 into the future, but we’re definitely on the support bandwagon. Like we have said in previous articles, this game now gives Treyarch the chance to take Call of Duty in a new direction and who knows it may even go on to top the original and introduce Sci-Fi fans who were previously uninterested in ‘another bland shooter’.
Will you be tuning into the final on Saturday between Bayern Munich and Chelsea? Who do you think will come out on top? My money’s on Bayern personally, but let’s see what happens.
