Take a look at the debut trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops (previously COD7). Drop some comments on what YOU think you see. It’s fast paced so for the most part you’ll only catch glimpses. One glimpse I immediately noticed was “2010:03:02” Feb 3rd, 2010? Was that Groundhogs day? The same day over and over and over again? This video could be flashbacks of past events. Check it out below…
Players take the role of a Black Ops operative who will be involved in missions behind enemy lines. Missions will take place in a variety of locations, including Cuba, the Arctic, and Vietnam.
The game was first officially unveiled when the official site for the game went live prior to the release on the game’s reveal trailer on April 30, 2010. Along with the site, a blog was also uploaded which contained an official announcement of the game by Treyarch which was dated April 29, 2010 a day prior to the game’s unveiling. In May 2009, publisher Activision was rumored to be looking for licensing regarding Vietnam War-era music which led to speculation that Call of Duty 7 would be set in Vietnam. In February 2010, a casting call for Call of Duty 7 led to speculation that the game would be taking place during the Cold War era with some battles taking place in South Vietnam. In early April 2010, Activision released a teaser site for the game whose address had to be revealed through a word cipher from a brown envelope sent to various gaming news publication via mail.
