Platforms: Xbox 360, Playstation 3 & PC
Activision & Treyarch are going full throttle with the next installment of the Call of Duty franchise, using the NBA Playoffs on TNT tonight to debut the world premier trailer of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Luckily, for those not wanting to wait to check it on television, Activision released it early online for us to see.
From what we gather from the trailer, Activision & Treyarch decided not go back in time to a World War II/Cold War setting, but take this title into the future, set in the year 2025, making it a first ever for the franchise. According to Activision, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 “Propels players into the near future, 21st Century Cold War, where technology and weapons have converged to create a new generation of warfare.” Sheesh. I’m with it.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will hit Xbox 360, Playstation 3 consoles & PC November 13th. Get ready.
OS REWIND: Black Ops 2 Release Date Revealed?
We must be one of the only ones who remember this video dropping because we didn’t see many people out there post when it was released. Now that the buzz has picked up and word was that Kanye West was checking for Chief, the G.O.O.D. Music crew remixes of one of his standouts from the Back From The Dead mixtape. #RatchetShit
Consider this track: certified. The streets have spoken. Who got best verse?
We weren’t expecting this collaboration between TiRon and ScHoolboy Q so it came as a nice little surprise today. Over a perfect California-esque beat, the two trade bars about the opposite sex and the infamous L word. And it only gets better once those snares kick in.
Produced by Chuck Inglish.
