Playable Black Ops 2 zombies desire over multiplayer

By Alan Ng - Jul 27, 2012

The highly anticipated follow up to Call of Duty Black Ops is not set for release until November – a fair while away. However, we’ve just heard that lucky attendees of an upcoming expo will have the chance to play Black Ops 2 as early as August – next month!

As far as we’re aware, this is going to be the first opportunity for general members of the public to have a chance to play the game before it’s out in November. GameStop has announced that they’re holding the ‘GameStop Expo 2012’ and Black Ops 2 is just one of the playable titles that is on a list including others such as FIFA 13, Medal of Honor: Warfighter and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

While it is confirmed that Black Ops 2 will be playable at the event on August 29th, we also have confirmation that multiplayer will be playable as well! That is a pretty big deal right there, as nobody has seen multiplayer footage for the game as of yet.

From the Expo website:

”Get hands-on experience at the Activision booth with Call of Duty: Black Ops II — including multiplayer — and the new Skylanders Giants products”.

Considering that the GamesStop Expo already has a major coup in getting multiplayer to the event, we wonder what the odds are on seeing a first gameplay preview of zombies mode?

As usual, Treyarch are being ultra secretive about their plans for Black Ops 2 zombies, although you would have to feel that some sort of reveal has to be coming sooner rather than later. The GamesStop Expo doesn’t seem like the most ‘prestigious’ of events at first glance, but if Treyarch deem it big enough to unveil multiplayer for the first time, then maybe we’ll get a zombies surprise as well.

Like Rockstar and GTA V, do you feel that Treyarch are taking too long to show off multiplayer and zombies? Does the delays just keep you more excited, or are you starting to get frustrated with the way developers like to play the waiting game now? The bottom line is Black Ops 2 multiplayer is coming next month – we can’t wait.

  • CoD? its OLD move on

    the franchise it tired, the game is old, the engine is old and most of the gamers take it too seriously, but then again it keeps them  from ruining other games with their BS, go on activision continue the CoD franchise because it keep other games clean of your looser fans.

      what’s a looser fan?  I feel I’m pretty tight

    • Crimson_Q

      And your complaint is old, but that doesn’t stop you from playing it over and over again, does it?

  • dean oakes

    yawnnnnnn same old shite

    Considering I skipped over MW3 for its piece-of-shit-ness, it’s been almost two years since I’ve played a new call of duty game and this long, drawn out wait for information on the MP and zombies is annoying the hell out of me. It all seem like a ploy by the developers to keep interest in their game. COD fans always buy the next COD game, so this whole thing is unnecessary. If anything, it would make more sense to release information on the MP and zombies BEFORE other games release their reveals. 

    • Sharq Tennis Champ

      this is not just another call of duty game. Black ops is a beast of its own. 

      • Crimson_Q

        Yes, I also like Blops, but considering the catastrophe that was MW3, I want less secrets and more reveals. In-depth reveals.

    No! Rockstar take forever to announce/release info on their games, we see call of  duty every year which is announced in march(roughly). Rockstar keeps their cards very close to their chest’s for years, and as frustarting as it is, it makes for a better experience when playing the final game, as you haven’t seen hours of footage already. GTA V is definitely one of my most anticipated games and i really hope we find out a release date soon, but I will be picking up Black Ops for its campaign and zombies mode.
