Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which is the sequel to the smash-hit Black Ops, promises to bring to subtle yet refreshing changes to the traditional CoD franchise. Obviously the game remains the same with all its basics but the technology, plot and certain other aspects have been revised to provide a new experience of the game. So, here you have Black Ops 2: basic things you need to know about the upcoming FPS game.
The game has been declared to release in single-player as well as multi-player mode. The basic concept of the game for both modes remains the same. However, single-player mode provide more inclusive campaign feel while the multi-player in more dynamic. Besides, the hit zombie version is also available but only in multi-player mode.
Among the existing features, kill-streak is introduced with welcome changes too. The player gets added support with certain numbers of kill in a streak. Only this time, a kill with the reward will not increase the numbers of kills for the streak. Moreover, there are other perks in the game.
Those who have one or more part(s) of CoD series know what its features are. The features that were not there in the previous versions or that have been introduced with modifications are, as mentioned, the zombies, the kill-streak, etc. Moreover, equipment, perks and weapons can be unlocked through gaining points which is an altogether new concept compared to previous versions. Instead of only achieving greater levels of the game, perks and weapons can be purchased with spending points. This makes possessing special equipment tough and more challenging. The accomplishment of missions and levels still do unlock perks for the player.
Other than these, ‘player-card’ has been introduced in Black Ops II which allows players to view complete statistics of game-play. Players will be able to compare their kills with that of the reward weapon or, with their fellow players in multi-player mode. Data of other users who might have played the game can also be viewed with the help of this option. Also, players can watch an entire sequence played by them or by others as a spectator. This feature has been included with the name theatre and gives exclusive theatrical experience with the difference that the viewer knows he/she is the hero of the action.
Also, there are perks with purchase of the game as well as the time of purchase. Black Ops 2: everything you need to know includes these too.
