With Call of Duty Black Ops 2 now looking likely to happen later this year, our immediate thoughts turn to how Treyarch will aim to go one further and make the most successful game in history even better.
Just a week ago, we informed you about the alleged beta video that had turned up online which seemed to hint of a zombie campaign mode, which would obviously be a major addition to the popular spin-off mode and exactly the sort of thing that Treyarch needs to include if they are going to keep the series fresh.
There’s still no word on if that clip is legit or not, but at this moment in time we can say that the video is still live so check it out again below if you missed it last time. Moving away from the zombie side of things though, how can Treyarch improve on multiplayer and the campaign to make the game even better than the original?
One of the most addictive aspects of Black Ops in my opinion was the new wager match modes and in particular, the excellent gun game. I can honestly say that I put countless hours into playing gun game time and time again as the idea of stealing everyone’s money just kept me coming back for more. Infinity Ward hasn’t included this in Modern Warfare 3 of course, but we hope that Treyarch plans to expand on their wager match mode in Black Ops 2 and make it even better than ever – gun game version 2.0 needs to be included as it was easily the best wager match mode.
COD 3 had vehicles: Vehicles are obviously a big attraction in Battlefield 3 at the moment, but how would you feel if Treyarch added some vehicles or heavy weaponry into some of their multiplayer maps? Possible ideas could be a turret set up in a specific part of the map which players can race to use, or maybe even some small people carriers with mounted guns attached to them – don’t forget that Call of Duty 3, a Treyarch developed game had all kinds of vehicles to use on multiplayer, so don’t think that the idea of vehicles being utilized in Black Ops 2 is too farfetched.
If you still play Black Ops today, what kind of features would you like to see in Black Ops 2 to make the game mind-blowing? Do you just want to see an improvement to zombies, or would you welcome more adventurous features like multiplayer vehicles as well? Let’s hope we’re not too far off from an initial reveal.
