Online Director Dan Bunting took us through a tech demo of the upgraded graphics; while lighting upgrades and tech aren't usually the most interesting topics, what they were showing looked great. As they put it, they are aiming for "PC quality graphics running at 60 FPS on a console."


Love statements like this. PC quality graphics from 2005 you mean? Not a console hater - I play COD on PS3 - but statements like this are stupid. Back Ops, with supposedly lesser graphics then BO2, didn't even run close to 60fps on the PS3 but we are supposed to get PC-quality gfx at 60fps this time around? 60fps on the 360 maybe, but still not anywhere close to PC quality from any time recently. Keeping "aiming" guys.

If that trailer is indicative of their "improved" graphics, sorry I'm not buying it.

Man, I haven't really liked a call of duty game since the first Modern Warfare but Christ you guys are fickle.

Horses in a Call of Duty game is "horses are dumb!"

Horses in... I don't know, a Valve game, people would be going nuts about how awesome HORSES are. They'd be making horse hats in TF2.


The plot from Guns of the Patriots was pretty cool. Apparently they're doing that.

I actually hated Black Ops because I found it extremely boring and I like MW3 so I dont think I'll be getting this. I'll wait to see actual gameplay of it first though.

Steam has their Black Ops 2 page up.
http://store.steampowered.com/app/202970


BO2 will apparently make use of DX11 video cards as well.

Read into the zombies mode. Not happy with a new feature. Online 8 player mode...that's awful. Unless these maps are super big I have no interest in MORE idiots breaking the flow of the swarms and making me go down.

Like Witcher 2, this will prove yet again how useless "DX11" is far as visual fidelity goes only in the opposite direction.

In all honesty, just from the trailer, the game looks pretty decent. At least Treyarch is trying to do something different.

The horses part is from a spot in the game when your in 80's Afghanistan

I hated MW3 and sold mine back to the store, but if you want to play it again, go into Options in Main Menu and turn over the Theater Mode that records all of your games... That adds a lot of stupid lag.... But then you have that silly lag compensation annoying the crap out of you anyway.

Aren't they afraid of making it too much like Killzone series???

I'd like to see some multi-player footage.

None of this matters until they release multiplayer footage. BO was ok, MW3 was bad. If they can improve on the BO multiplayer, have no lag, add some cool maps and gametypes I would be pretty happy.

I'm the opposite.

I bought MW3 when it first came out. I just hit level 80 for the first time yesterday... The game is terrible.

What I did like was your sniper rifle has a better chance of hitting people when lined up and Team Defender.

Killzone 3 was absolutely terrible. Online play was just a major campfest and there's not even killstreaks involved... I haven't played many shooters, but Killzone 2 is up there with MW1, or Cod4.

Knowing Treyarch, they'll find ways to **** it up.

MW3 was awful. Didn't even get to level 80, or whatever you needed to prestige. And I was level 11 prestige on BO.

If this game is near as bad as MW3, it'll be my last COD game.

I really liked Black Ops, Zombies mode is great and for some reason, I'm really good in multiplayer even tough I sucked in MW2. I didn't buy MW3 because it looked so much like MW2 (which I tought was absolutely terrible). I'm probably going to buy Blops2, it's a nice game to have to paly with friends.

Same for, for the most part. I played a lot of Black Ops on both PS3 and 360, really enjoyed it. But MW3 was such a huge let down, got to about level 75 and couldn't play any more. Actually, huge let down doesn't even describe how disappointed I was in that game.

This new one, I'll wait for gameplay footage to come out to judge it.

I've played bops for both, too.

Got to level 50, 15th prestige at I'd probably be close to prestiging a 2nd time if I felt like it.
