A few more details on Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops popped up today, answering a few of the more pointed questions arising from the game’s debut trailer.
Intrigued by the presence of an Sr-71 Blackbird reconnaissance aircraft? According to this report (though be warned, the wording is vague), you’re flying it. Wondering about the kind of guns that will be in the game? There aren’t just guns, there are also crossbows. And yes, all that snow you can see means that you won’t just be fighting in the jungles of Cuba and Vietnam; you’ll also be blowing stuff up in Mother Russia as well.
The game will also feature 2-4 player co-op, with the game’s main story focusing on two characters over “multiple covert international conflicts”
That’s about all that can be gleaned from a depressingly brief “preview” over on USA Today, but the flying stuff will be interesting, since previous games have only let you roll a camera around, not the plane itself.
