If you have owned a PS Vita since it went on launch at the start of the year, or even last year if you imported, you are probably a little disappointed with the lack of new games coming out. Black Ops: Declassified was touted as one of the highlights of the system, but fans have been let down as of yet with a continued silence.
Luckily, GamesCom 2012 is just around the corner and we’ve just heard that Black Ops: Declassified is finally set for a proper reveal. If you watched Sony’s E3 presser in June you were probably just as unimpressed as we were when Activision decided to reveal a logo for the game and nothing else.
We didn’t get a release date and we certainly didn’t get a gameplay trailer or a single screenshot. Meanwhile, we were promised at the time that Declassified was going to offer a ‘true’ Call of Duty experience similar to console, which obviously implies that Vita owners are going to get a fully fledged multiplayer mode.
In a recent statement to MCV, Activision has again been bigging up the game, with Michael Sportouch, Activision’s European VP and GM offering up a few encouraging words. When talking about the upcoming game, he again said that it is going to offer a ‘true Call of Duty experience’ and that they are excited about ‘connecting with a new audience’.
The most important thing to note though, is that the game is going to be on show at GamesCom, so we can only assume that we’ll finally get a look at how the game is shaping up and how it compares to console. After the delay for the game, will you expect nothing less than a multiplayer mode that plays almost the same as on console?
This is going to be the main selling point of the game we feel and if it just turns out to be a shoddy port, there’s going to be a lot of angry Vita owners. If you have a Vita let us know how important this game is to you and what you are expecting to see. Resistance and Unit 13 didn’t exactly set the world on fire did they?
