Cod Blops 3 PC Tweetdeets: FOV And Dedicated Servers

Tweets from developers dumping details are a bit like bubble gum wrapper trivia facts, aren't they? You won't be fascinated and enthralled, you won't learn the deepest secrets of the darkest beings, but you might raise your eyebrows a little, but approvingly, and at the back of your mouth grind out an approving throaty vocalisation like "Mmh!" or "Hhhoh!" or "Hmm!" or "Hrmmm!" Now we've…

Snapchat Probably Teasing Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3

Ah good, it's time to start talking about Next Call Of Duty and how it's probably going to be Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 because a Snapchat campaign - yes Snapchat, shut up - implies as much. While streaming some Black Ops 2, YouTuber Drift0r picked up on the addition of one of those QR code ghost things Snapchat introduced so you can befriend…

COD BLOPS 2 Gun Balancing Uncovers Absolute Jerks

Multiplayer Game Balancing AN-94: Damage slightly reduced. DSR 50: Rate of fire reduced. Ballista: Rate of fire slightly reduced. You look at the patch notes, your whole body starting to go hot with rage. Your heart beats faster, your breath gets shorter. You HIT the Red Bull can from your desk, the murky liquid splashing your poster of Transformers-spoiling sticky-hottie Megan Fox across the arse.…

It’s No Blood Dragon, But: BLOPS 2 Adds Mobster Zombies

I can't confess to having played much Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (I'm all Call-of-Duty-ed out, although I actually enjoyed BLOPS 1 well enough), but I have to applaud it for occasionally going a bit off the script. Case in point: while the main story was, of course, mostly a near-future/past military techno-stravasplosion, upcoming DLC Mob of the Dead is, well, exactly what it sounds…

Play Gratuitous Space Battles For Free This Weekend

I know many of you will be spending the weekend tending to your winter-blasted shoots as you celebrate the feast day of Serenus the Gardener, or perhaps remembering Red Army Day by engaging in tabletop recreations of the Battle of Kiev or, for the more ambitious, Operation Bagration. Commendable pastimes, I'm sure, but if the dusty red blocks that represent Soviet armoured divisions are lost…

Everyone Was Thinking It: Cod Of Duty

Call of Duty: Black Ops. CODBLOPS. BLOPS. COD. Cod. Heh, that's a fish. This is the exact process every human brain goes through upon trying to create an acronym for Activision's record-obliterating mega-blockbuster, so it's only natural that someone would eventually convert that lush, meaningful imagery back into a game. Thus, I bring you Cod of Duty. The basic premise? Evil fish terrorists are planning... something.…

Feature: Cold, dead hands

CODBLOPS 2 (Singleplayer) review

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is the 4192nd Call of Duty Game, and as such predominantly requires you to run forwards while firing a machinegun and following an indestructible friendly NPC whose main purpose is to open doors. It's developed by Treyarch rather than Modern Warfare-makers Infinity Ward, and it's the direct sequel to the Cold War-set Black Ops 1. This time, the setting…

BioWare Laughs Off BLOPS2/Mass Effect 2 Mix-Up

There are a few different ways BioWare could have reacted to their game, Mass Effect 2, being accidentally shipped in boxes of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2. It's looking like they've picked the best possible one. Rather than getting upset, the studio is seeing it as splendid marketing, a promotional opportunity, and explaining to those who've received a copy of their game that "the…

CODBloopers: A Mass Production Error

We're still waiting for Call of Duty Black Ops 2 wot-I-think code here on RPS, but some punters who've already lain hands on the PC version of Activision's latest Manshooter Titan have found themselves equally unable to play the thing. But why? Had it been tampered with by the fugitive head of an anti-virus company? Had wolves eaten it? Would it not install until Mason…

Where Am I? – Black Ops 2’s Launch Trailer

I just got off a plane, which purportedly took me back to San Francisco. However, as a free bonus, it apparently also catapulted me forward in time by a whole month! That's the only explanation I can come up with for why there's already a Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 launch trailer. Or maybe - just maybe - Activision saw fit to roll out…

Deader Than Ever: Black Ops 2’s Zombie Campaign

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will have zombies. At this point, that statement is almost as much of a foregone conclusion as "Black Ops 2 will have guns" or "Black Ops 2 will provide Activision with enough cash to put Bobby Kotick's brain into a fully weaponized robot body, ensuring this his dark dominion over Earth is equal parts swift and eternal." But, like…

The Future Is Drones: Black Ops 2’s Multiplayer Reveal

After months of speculation and feverish, sweat-stained worry, Activision's finally seen fit to set the world's mind at ease. Turns out, the new Call of Duty game will have multiplayer after all. That's right: multiple players. And I think I might have spotted a gun or two in there as well. Activision won't confirm or deny that one just yet, though, so Black Ops 2…

CODBLOPS 2 Has Reznor & Villain With Beard

Trent Reznor, who it's still weird to see referred to as an Academy Award Winning Composer, will be providing the theme tune for Call of Duty Black Ops 2. Both he and the FPS have come a long way from Quake, although I'll leave it to you to decide in which direction each has been travelling. The news comes along with a trailer for the…

Black Ops 2 Adding Ranked Dedicated Servers

Has it been a great 24 hours for revolutionary new tech developments or what? First Minecraft revealed "LAN" - named, of course, after LAN parties, which paradoxically didn't exist until just a few moments ago - and now Activision's pointing its scope at longer-range latency with a new addition to Black Ops 2's scary future war arsenal: dedicated servers. Unlike Modern Warfare 3's, however, these…

CODBLOPS 2 Has Horses & Robots & Everything

It's 1:06 AM in the UK. Why in the sacred name of Galvatron aren't I in bed yet? Why am I posting the trailer for Black Ops 2 instead? These and more secrets will be revealed in Call of Meer's Bedtime: Groggy Morning 2 tomorrow. In the meantime, just watch the damn trailer, which has all manner of future death-machines and a level of outright…

CODBLOPS 2 Does Modernish Warfare

Call of Duty 9: Black Ops 2: Modern Warfare 4 was rumoured to exist but if you're anything like me, you'll be flabbergasted to hear that the series is indeed continuing and the website for the game is now live, although the trailer that takes centre stage doesn't work just yet. It's apparently due to be premiered (red carpet?) this evening during the NBA Playoffs.…
