Gamers, hold onto your hats! “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2” is on the way. According to the Washington Post, “CoD: BO2” is a direct sequel. It will take place during the second Cold War in the year 2025.
Remember Alex Mason from the previous game? This time around you’ll be playing as his son David. Mark Lamia, the Studio Head of Treyarch tells the site, “The original ‘Black Ops’ took place during the first Cold War, I call it the first Cold
War because the new Cold War hasn’t happened — yet.”
Don’t be sad. You’ll get to play Alex again in 1980’s flashbacks. He’ll be in charge of starting proxy wars with Russia in different locations like Nicaragua and Afghanistan. Both father and son share a mysterious enemy named Raul Menendez who is part of the Reagan-era conflict in Nicaragua.
Remember Frank Woods? He didn’t die in the first game. He’ll function as a narrator, explaining what happened back in the 1980’s on assignment with Alex Mason and how it affects the story in 2025. We’ll get Menendez’ back story and find out why he became a monster. By the way, the war isn’t over oil. It’s over rare earth.
Oliver North is a consultant on the game and David Goyer (“The Dark Knight”) helped develop the game. Are you freaking out yet? “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2” will be released on November 18. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
