The lights are on
Activision and Treyarch have released a new trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops, and it's filled with lots of interesting details. There are shots of some of the game's unusual weapons, including a crossbow with explosive bolts, and exotic aircraft such as the SR-71 Blackbird. There are also a few blink-and-you'll-miss-them moments, the highlight of which is a quick glimpse of the game's helicopter-piloting sequence.
Aside from that, it's also a nice overall look at the game in motion. If you're OD'd on FPS games, this one probably won't convert you, but if you're in the mood for more Call of Duty this should do the trick.

only reason im not buying this is because of activision, otherwise it looks like treyarch is pulling out all the stops to make this one as action packed as both modern warfares hopefully they can pull it off
I was not even considering buying this game until I saw that exceedingly good trailer. It's not that Treyarch doesn't do an excellent job with the CoD franchise (they do great work), it's just that the market is so oversaturated with FPS and Call of Duty (along with Halo) are two of the leading reasons for the constant barrage.
I can't stop watching it...
@ kyle (from another kyle), i agree 100%. this trailer looks fantastic, and i have confidence treyarch can pull it off.
call of duty has lost all my support. im going with respawn entertainment beyotch!
Can't see the video. Also, why does everyone hate Modern 2?
I'm super excited for this!
How is the SR-71 exotic? It's not exotic at all!
Looks good then again they always do ill keep my eye on it.
P.S. 360 FTW Pre- order now xD
I HOPE THAT IT LOOKS LIKE MODERN WARFARE 2 WITH THE GRAPHICS AND SAME GAMEPLAY. THE HELICOPTER PART WELL IT GOT TO BE THE SAME AS MODERN WARFARE 2 WHEN WE ARE AT THE PLANE SHOOTING. THATS SOME STRONG PLANE GAMEPLAY. PLEASE NO UMORE OF THE OLD WAR GAMES MAKE SOME RECENT ONES. I KNOW ITS CONTROVERSIAL BUT JEEZ THE SAME OLD WARS THATS TIRING. WHATS NEXT CALL OF DUTY: NORTH VS SOUTH REVOLUTIONARY WAR.
I'm sad that everyone is hating on CoD:MW2. I think that game took the franchise to a different plane of existence. I'm not hating on this or anything, but I'm just defending a great game here.
Looks pretty good...I'm not buying into the hype though. Glad Treyarch is on this installment, World at War was solid, especially the campaign co-op, which I will assume is being built into this game as well.
Holy s*** this is going to be sweet! did you see that? thats was awesome! if the game is as good as teh trailer,then im excited. also didnt that voice over sound like price in the end of MW2?
this doesnt look like Vietnam to me, and they need to take this game in a new direction, istead of just copy/paste bs, hell its bad enough we let sports game get away with it, lets not accecpt shooter that do this aswell
GAHHHHH OMG! amazing!
Sorry but Im not getting this one until they fix a few things.
1. Let me play single player by myself(or split screen co-op) with the cheats(death cards) I unlocked. P.S. would love a 3rd person card.
2. Get rid of infinite enemy respawns.
3. Fix the ally AI(They shouldn't stand in front of an enemy and not shoot him from two feet away).
4. In veteren get rid of the enemy grenade spam and the omnicient AI.
Fix those things and im all over this game.
I have faith that Treyarch can pull this off. Though I really hope they make the campaign longer then the normal 5-hour campaign the series is known for. But that's probably a long shot.
