As the days draw in and the nights get colder you can truly tell that winter is almost upon us, but on thing that helps us get through those cold winter months is the options to Headshot and Kill streak our way through the winter with a new Call of Duty game.
Well with the next instalment of the franchise set for release on November the 13th, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, things are starting to hot up for the game as the creators Activision and Treyarch are releasing little bits of information in the run-up to the games official release.
SO what the manufacturers have set out to do is to update the whole Multiplayer platform to give Black Ops II, CoD’s biggest multiplayer overhaul since Call of Duty 4.
Speaking to CVG, multiplayer designer David Vonderhaar has said that the system has seen a big change and has stated that they have made the perks system more complex than the last Black Ops game:
“I can nerf perks and I will, mark my words. A perk should never be something you need just to compete. . A perk is ‘I got a parking spot,’ or ‘the soda machine gave me free soda.’ Your life shouldn’t depend on it. The community helped me understand that, and that’s why our new system has no absolutes. We can try to make it the most balanced CoD ever.”
“Perks were pretty important for us to rethink, because they were getting too complex, ” he said. “You had perks, perk pros, perks that influence you, perks that influence your gun, perks that influence team mates.”
“We’ve simplified that so perks only ever affect your character, and more importantly, Black Ops II’s perks aren’t absolutes. In Black Ops our only balancing options were to remove the perk or keep it; now we can tune any perk by increments to nerf it or improve it.”
So that’s it folks, its looking like things are going to be a changing in the COD-Verse, and many a classic player may struggle at first, but we love the idea of changes and with many big named franchises falling on their lack of changes we think its good that Treyarch are always looking to add to their products main feature.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is out on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on November 13 and it will be released with the Wii U from the consoles launch.
