Following last night’s official trailer, Activision has released these five (5) new screenshots of Call of Duty: Black Ops releasing November 9th, 2010. Get ready to dismember your enemies since the feature will be available. Shooting limbs and/or legs is of course optional. Enjoy the screenshots below…
The game features new equipment for the series such as a scoped crossbow with different kinds of ammunition (e.g., explosive) and Dragon’s Breath rounds for shotguns. It also has an early model of the Steyr AUG which is customizable. The player will be piloting aircraft: an SR-71 Blackbird guiding a squad on the ground and an attack helicopter. The dismemberment feature, showcased only in Call of Duty: World at War, can be seen in the teaser trailer.
Little is known about multiplayer: vehicles will return, as well as dedicated servers for the PC version unlike Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2. It will feature a “Create-a-Class 2.0” allowing appearance customization alongside perks. Killstreaks will not count towards each other (while stacking and carrying over after deaths). Black Ops’ multiplayer designer also stated there will be no nukes or game-ending killstreaks.
The cooperative mode will have a separate campaign.
Players take the role of Black Ops operatives who will be involved in missions behind enemy lines, set during the Cold War. Missions will take place in a variety of locations, including Cuba, South America, the Arctic, Vietnam and may also involve the Cuban missile crisis, the Space Race, and covert operations in the Soviet Union.
