Leaked Details Surface on COD Black Ops 2

If you’re a big fan of the original Black Ops video game, some details have leaked on the follow-up to that game. I’m really glad to hear this because I thought Black Ops was the best game in the Call of Duty franchise.

 

Take all this with a grain of salt, but the launch date is said to be November 6. The game is also said to get a new mode called escort with drop zone and kill confirmed modes also coming over from the original game. The new game will apparently lose team defender and infected modes.

The thing I really wonder about is will Black Ops 2 get resurrection mode. Shooting those zombies is one of my favorite parts of the game. I hope that more details leak ahead of the launch later this year.

If you are more into “run and gun games” Sniper Elite V2 might not be for you. But if you prefer a more methodical approach to your game play with plenty of stealth and less bullets fired. Then the new Sniper Elite V2 might be for you.

Once officially launched the new Sniper Elite V2 game will feature a selection of cooperative-focused multiplayer options, including the entire game being available for two-player co-op, a wave-based mode dubbed Kill Tally, a sabotage mode called Bombing Run, and Overwatch.
