Content about Treyarch


You’ve seen the first trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, right?  The one where our own drones are turned against us in the face of a new enemy and plenty of chaos happening around Los Angeles?  Well, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  Recently, Activision invited us to a pre-E3 event, where it showed off the first gameplay footage, a good ten minutes worth of tense future action.  And we can tell you right now – Treyarch hasn’t lost a step between the first game and the second.  In fact, it’s learned quite a bit with the tweaks it’s made to the familiar Infinity Ward tech.


With The Amazing Spider-Man set to hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in a matter of weeks, Activision will be introducing the best of both worlds when it comes to the web slinger’s gaming adventures.  On the one hand, the development team at Beenox is handling the game, and you already know about the work they did on Shattered Dimensions and Edge of Time.  On the other, they’re going with the open level design that worked so well in previous Spider-Man games before that.  You can’t lose.


It's no secret that Activision is working along with Treyarch on a new Call of Duty game for release later this year.  It's become a yearly franchise and, hey, it's made this much money for them, so why stop now?  The only question remains is just what game we can really expect.  Another classic shooter?  A Future Warfare title?  Well, according to a registered domain name that was recently taken, the title may have just gotten a little clearer -- Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.


A little while back, you might have read an article on called "Modern Warfare 3 On Wii: Is it Still Relevant?".  (You can read it at this link if you haven't seen it yet.)  We had to ask the question because most "hardcore" gamers tend to stick to their Xbox 360 and PS3 guns, leaving us wondering if the Wii version was important anymore.  We gave it the benefit of the doubt, but Activision sent us a copy to check out anyway, out of sheer curiosity.  And while you won't mistake it for one of the "higher-up" versions on the market, Treyarch is to be commended for not only remedying mistakes from previous Modern Warfare mistakes, but delivering on the goods in both single and multiplayer.


Activision and Treyarch will be releasing Rezurrection, the all-Zombies content pack for Call of Duty®: Black Ops on the Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network on August 23rd and we've got the latest screenshots and preview trailer to show all the zombie goodness off. Rezurrection hurls players into orbit with Moon, the climax of the Call of Duty Zombies saga and the first in the series to drop zombie-slaying into low-G lunar battlegrounds. With new outrageous weapons, high-tech gear, and a bloodthirsty undead menace, Moon is the most challenging and thrilling Zombies adventure yet, Activision claims. Check out the new trailer and screenshots after the break.


In less than three months, we'll be able to get our hands on the next Call of Duty game, the long-awaited Modern Warfare 3.  But get this -- buzz is already building on what could be the next game in the series, possibly for release sometime next year.  The next game is being made by Treyarch (the developers behind Call of Duty: Black Ops) and it already has a code name -- Project Iron Wolf.

Although Call of Duty fans may have their eyes set on Modern Warfare 3, there still is some fun to be had in Call of Duty: Black Ops. The game has already seen the release of two map packs since it's release in November of last year, but a third map pack very well may be on the way. A photograph leaked out onto the internet, showing off 5 possible maps for an upcoming DLC map pack.
 Have you ever wanted to keep stats for your performances in shooters but were limited to just a few stats that the game keeps? Did you ever want to join clans and organize on something other than your console? Call of Duty Elite is a brand new subscription service that's being introduced to the series, allowing for deep stat tracking as well as serving as a platform for you to organize with friends and compare yourself to the rest of the world. While the trailer that was released promises something new and innovative, it really is something we've already seen before.
 It's official. FPS fans can expect Modern Warfare 3 to come out on November 8 this year. After the teaser trailer dropped, everyone started scouring the internet to find whatever details they can about the game. People have good reason to. The last two Modern Warfare titles have been really solid games, providing an explosive single-player campaign along with an addictive multiplayer component. After the success of the first game, this formula propelled Modern Warfare 2 to over $1 billion in sales worldwide in not even two months. That record was broken by Call of Duty: Black Ops by reaching the same milestone in less than one month. Though Infinity Ward returns to make the third game, it's not the same Infinity Ward that we know from the previous title. That has me raising the big question - will Modern Warfare 3 be as good as its predecessors?
