Call of Duty: Black Ops

Black Ops Zombies now in iTunes

Published

on

Activision Inc has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies is coming to iOS tomorrow, December 1st, for $6.99. This game will be a follow up to Call of Duty: World at War Zombies for iOS. This game supports up to four players and amazingly voice chat! Kotaku got some hands on time with this and said “Firing the game up on an iPad 2, the first thing that jumped out was the slickness of the presentation.”

Kotaku also said ” The game itself plays more or less like an updated version of its predecessor, though the improved controls make a world of difference. Zombies come in through the windows, you shoot them—you build your defenses back up, unlock new areas, and buy new guns. The graphics have improved significantly from the first iOS game, and the zombies blow apart in appealingly gross ways.”

When Activision was asked about an Android version, the said “not prepared to talk about that at this time.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Treyarch celebrates 10 years of Call of Duty: Black Ops with new feature video

Published

on

Today, May 18, 2020, marks 10 years since the very first Call of Duty: Black Ops game was announced by Activision and Treyarch.

On May 18, 2010, Call of Duty: Black Ops was revealed with its debut reveal trailer and released later that year on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

Today, to celebrate it, Treyarch has shared a new video and a blog post looking back at the 10 years of the Black Ops franchise.

Following the release of Call of Duty: World at War in 2008, we had the opportunity to turn our full creative focus solely on making Call of Duty games, a move that gave rise to the Black Ops series of games starting in 2010. While World at War gave us characters like Reznov and Easter Eggs like a little-known bonus mode called Zombies, it was just a glimpse into just how much story there was to tell.

From there, we went deep into the shadows: Call of Duty: Black Ops was the history you thought you knew. It was Woods, Hudson, and Mason… it was plausible deniability, and mindf*ckery… it was THE NUMBERS!… and best of all, it was just scratching the surface.

New ‘DECLASSIFIED’ video series explores Treyarch’s development process

Published

on

On the December 12 livestream, Treyarch gave fans a sneak peak at a new video intel series titled “DECLASSIFIED”. Today they have released the first full episode focusing on the history of Nuketown.

Unredacted intel, direct from the devs. This is DECLASSIFIED, where we uncover the secrets behind the development of the Black Ops series.

The video begins with Senior Level Designer Adam Hoggatt explaining how Call of Duty maps go from an idea to a reality.

He says “So I had just finished working on the map Radiation on Black Ops 1 and an email came out from Vahn saying ‘hey what if we make a small map based on the nuclear testing towns, these fake towns, that they used to set up to test nukes.'”

Adam also explains an idea they had where there would be a path behind the B capture point where players could flank the enemy team. He goes on to say that when implemented, it was just terrible so they removed it.

Producer Miles Leslie goes on to mention how their idea for Black Ops 4’s Nuketown originally was supposed to be much more real and depressing, but toned that down because Nuketown is traditionally a more colorful and fun map.

This is just episode one of the Declassified series, so expect some more deep dives into the Call of Duty development process.
