First big Call of Duty: Black Ops reveal coming this month

Call of Duty: Black Ops then. Looks exciting, does it not? Shame that we know bugger all about it, officially. But all that is about to change very shortly. This very month in fact.

Our sister magazines, Official PlayStation Magazine and Official Xbox Magazine (UK versions) have been over to developer Treyarch, and have scored the exclusive big reveals on the new Cold War CoD. New gameplay, new locations, new story details, apparently they've got the whole lot, but unfortunately we haven't been able to get a damn thing out of them. Not even with the promise of cake and fine wines.

We have our own theories on Black Ops of course. Tyler did this extensive trailer breakdown when said string of promotional moving images was released, and George has been looking up Vietnam on Wikipedia for details on weapons and battle tactics (Current theory is Call of Duty: Child Soldier Edition. Check out the last UK podcast for more details). But it looks like we'll have to wait for OPM and OXM's reports before we can confirm or deny any of this.

When will that happen? The mags are out on the 17th and 14th of May, respectively. In the meantime, we'll be buying more baking ingredients.

    Touche! Yeah I agree, WaW was a really good game.

    Treyarch proved itself with World at War. Gameplay was amazing as was online MP, along with the option of NAZI ZOMBIES. Though MW2 had Spec Ops. Nazi Zombies in my opinion put the game on another level. Two games in One. People have always claimed MW to always be better than World at War, but WaW was the best it could be for being held in the past (guns, camos, vehicles, etc) Another thing Treyarch did better, though minor, was the radar in Online playing. The multi color differance is way better then the Grey on Grey radar Infinity Ward displays. Can't wait to play this game!

    OK, so with the (semi) dissolving of the original Infinity Ward as we know it, does anyone think Treyarch can carry the torch so highly and brightly lit by Infinity Ward? A lot of people always criticized Treyarch as the "knock-off" company, but who knows this time around.
