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.

Hmmm, pretty interesting. For some reason I'm getting an Animus vibe from the whole laboratory thing.
I paused at one point and it showed some soilders in white camo in mountanous areas with snow. So i am pretty sure it's a cold war game.
I dont get it...
looks interesting. didn't look much like 'Nam though. maybe 'Nam-ish???
never again shall i answer the call
Good trailer. Hopefully the vietnam setting makes things different
directed by michael bay.
Interesting at least. Its Treyarch so it wont be as good as the Modern Warfare's were, but it might hold my attention until someone comes out with a Call of Duty killer.
Ok, I've watched this trailer like 10 times now, and I realized something kind of interesting. During the hospital room parts, the guy dies ad they say they have to bring him back. What else dies and then comes back?? Zombies!!! So I was thinking maybe this was instead of something tied to the story mode, maybe it was footage of the zombie program at dier rise. Just a theory though, but then I still have no idea where a astronaut would come into it, lol. Looks good so far though, absolutely loved WaW and the Nazi Zombies mode, so I can't wait to see how this turns out. I'm gonna download the video in my ps3 tonight so I can watch it in slow motion to see if I can maybe catch anything else
Debut Trailer? Debut Teaser Trailer.
interesting..looks very Vietnam-like. but it is made by treyarch, and they suck.
Great trailer... this could be good. I preferred Treyarch's take on the series to be honest.
Definetly Vietnam...you can tell by the helicopters. The jungle background as well. That and the contract with the Infinity Ward developers that limits what Activision can do without them.
This trailer makes the story look really good.
BF fan and somewhat CoD fan (at least the original CoD's and WaW). The trailer has parts that look a little to futuristic for a Vietnam setting...
come on call of duty is dead just stop
I have to admit that this looks pretty stupid. From the trailer it seems like they are doing some sort of "play-the-game-through-flashbacks-only" type thing, alot like assasins creed, which in my opinion is completely ludacris. they also must be getting pretty desperate for new game locales if they are doing the vietnam war. Sad.
No matter how flashy they make it seem, I still won't buy it for 2 reasons. 1)Treyarch sucks, they need to throw in the towel and 2) It's an activision game. I think I may be able to survive without ever buying one of their games made in haste to make a quick buck ever again.
