With the launch of the official website, fans of the innovative series were astonished to discover that the latest instalment will also include online competitive play, a leveling system and a whole host of ludicrously overpowered killstreaks, all of which will be powered by the ground-breaking Call of Duty 4 engine.
“When the original Modern Warfare hit shelves back in 2007, it quickly established itself as the most innovative shooter on the market” said an Activision spokesman. “Our shareholders are big fans of innovation, so we’ve been careful not to change anything so to ensure that these innovative game mechanics live on, year after year. Sure, some people claim that the franchise has become dull and predictable, but that’s the price you pay for innovation. Well, that and a yearly $60 fee, but that’s still a hell of a bargain.”
Despite Activision’s understandable desire to protect the originality of the franchise, the publishing giant has allowed Treyarch, the developers behind Black Ops 2, to set the action in a place rarely visited by video games – the near future!
Whilst exact details are still under wraps, Activision has stated that Black Ops 2 will almost certainly feature lightsabers.Tweet
