The lights are on
For a while, rumors have been circulating that Treyarch’s next Call of Duty title would take place during the Vietnam War. We've got the first video of the recently-announced Call of Duty: Black Ops, and some of the snippets shown here certainly look Vietnam-like, but its hard to tell when you're looking at video clips that are five frames long. I also have to wonder what the medical room voiceover is all about. Could Call of Duty be experimenting with some F.E.A.R.-like genetic super-powers?
Check out the video for yourself below.

I saw this first thing 6:00 in the mornin on the link, but I can drop a comment on this website so... Thisl looks abit like your on a bed in the medical room and you have memories.
looks good to me just imagine if zombie mode is on there
im kind of confused on whats going on
i like the MW series, but i do miss the epicness of full out war battles. lets hope the plot doesn't turn supernatural like FEAR though, call of duty is supposed to be a war game, after all
ok i like cod series but what the hell is goin on in this i think its changing time periods. so like u start at ww2 and then as u progress the story you get further in time and maybe some futureistic levels. i would definetly buy if they did that. and a zombie mode
THEY HAVE ALREADY ANNOUNCED THAT VIETNAM IS THE SETTING!!!! Why is GI the only magazine that still has no idea?
I agree with the whole flashback deal. Seems like this will be spanning the vietnam through cold war era fighting commies. If it's set in the future and goes back and forth it could make an interesting game and story I think. No way are there going to be "super powers" ina COD game. The camping hackfest that MW2 became took me out of the COD universe, but to me this single player story might be a winner. If the maps are a little better laid out like COD4 was then we might have a winner here, or it could be like W@W and turn into a spawn campfest. We shall see. I'll more than likely be investing my time in New Vegas, but I'm counting this as a sleeper for the moment.
...and why do morons keep saying this is the cold war? Does anybody even know what the *** cold war was? It was political conflict not *** combat on a battlefield. People are so dumb, even GI speculated the Cold War as being in the next game. Everybody's a bunch of idiots. Get is straight: THERE WILL BE NO VIDEO GAME MADE ABOUT A BUNCH OF FALSE BOMB SCARES AND POLITICAL DISAGREEMENTS BECAUSE THAT IS ALL THE COLD WAR WAS. THIS GAME IS IN VIETNAM. PERHAPS THERE ARE OTHER SETTINGS BUT PLEASE STOP MENTIONING THE COLD WAR! IT IS NOT AT ALL WHAT YOU THINK IT IS!
Why are they even trying to take money away from Reach?
This looks great!
You know, u bought MW2 because of the hype it was given and I didn't really get the attraction so hype all you want superfans out there, I'll pass this time.
So he is having flashbacks? Cool!? not.... Gears 3 can you come any sooner??
good! but i don't really like call of duty,i prefer battlefield
looks pretty action packed... i hope they add a new zombies game style
Didn't a Call of Duty title just come out? They gotta be careful and not oversaturate the market.
Yay!!! Call of Duty 2010! Totally NOT looking forward to seeing this get released. :p
I wish Captain Price the best, but this game will never happen in my life. Maybe for others, but never for me.
Don't buy into Black Ops. Subscription-based services just don't cut it for me period. :p
Looks pretty cool
Honestly, I could care less if anything published by Activision cures cancer. I'd rather die from cancer than play their garbage games.
