When Call of Duty: Black Ops hits this November, it could be the most helicopterest game of all time. All time! Just going by the game's debut trailer, we're expecting a new chopper less than every four seconds.
Researcher Carlos Helicopters of the Call of Helicopters blog scrutinised the next Call of Duty game's helicopter density, leading to some surprising findings. With 27 helicopters spotted over the course of one minute and 30 seconds, that's an astonishing rate of 0.3 helicopters per second. Not since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare have we seen a game so helicopter packed!
If that HPS frequency remains constant throughout Treyarch's next Call of Duty game, Activision could sell 25 million copies of Black Ops easily. And if there's no dedicated helicopter deathmatch mode in Black Ops, we'll feel we've been essentially lied to.
Call of Duty: Black Ops will touch down on the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC on November 9.
