Before your mind is entirely blown, recognize that this is a system shock to almost every gamer. This means that the traditional run-and-gun spray-and-pray gameplay style of Call of Duty has been broken. Black Ops II has decisions. In a press release about an early launch at HMV London, Black Ops II was mentioned to be the next must-have game.
In the release, the following was stated about the storyline: “The non-linear storyline will allow players to battle in a futuristic conflict, as well as tackling flashbacks from historical missions and playing the role of various members of the featured Mason family. Every decision made during this interactive story will affect future consequences, giving you a uniquely different experience every time you play.
Alongside the epic ‘campaign and branching’ story is the all-new Multiplayer mode, which incorporates new maps, new game-styles, e-sports and new perks to make this the most engaging Multiplayer title yet.“
Was this a good move for the series? We’ll have to see.
