Yesterday, Activision revealed the latest installment in the Call Of Duty franchise. Where some of us was expecting it to be another Modern Warfare game, the developers surprised us with a new installment to Black Ops series of the game. Developed by Treyarch, COD: Black Ops, takes a bold new step in setting the game into near future.

It was very refreshing for every COD player to see the game taking place out of the modern era to an age where mechs and drones are used in war. The trailer gave us a lot of hints on what to expect. Treyarch also revealed the plot setting of the game.
According to the developers, China has waged war on USA. This war comes as a result of Earth artifacts that China holds most. In a world where oil has no value in front of these artifacts, nations fight each other to gain control of the fields where these are found.
In addition to releasing the trailer of the game, Treyarch’s Facebook page also had a surprise waiting for seasoned Call Of Duty players. The infamous Zombie mode of the game will make return as the post on their fan page read. There were no more details available about the mode except the fact that it will be using the new and improved multiplayer system of the game, allowing more players to jump into the action with even more zombies to kill. According to another post by the developers, gamers can expect fresh new multiplayer modes in the game.
