Black Ops: Declassified has been declassified.
You might not have noticed with all the other exciting things going on in the gaming world these days, but the PlayStation Vita has two analog sticks. That doesn’t sound like much, surely Sony could maybe fit three sticks on there if they tried, but for a handheld it’s a big step forward. One of the obvious benefits of the additional stick is that the handheld can now play host to the most quintessential modern genre: the shooter. Enter Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified.
There’s not much information to be gleaned from the trailer above, save for the fact the game contains people and guns with which to shoot them, but it does mention “multiplayer on the go” and “4v4 over wifi.” It also mentions that it comes with “all new maps,” but then it goes on to show slightly remixed versions of Black Ops maps, Nuketown, Array, Launch and Cracked.
The game is being developed by Nihilistic Software, the same company responsible for the lukewarm Resistance: Burning skies. According to Activision’s, Neven Dravinski, the game features covert missions that will bridge the story gap between the original Black Ops and the upcoming Black Ops 2.
Declassified’s multiplayer will apparently play out in a very similar fashion to its console counterparts’, with series mainstays, Create-a-Class, perks and prestige levels, all making an appearance. Both the Kill Confirmed and Drop Zone game modes from Modern Warfare 3 will be available.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is set for release this November.
