Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
Black Ops 2 sticks to the bread and butter multiplayer modes that gamers are used to, but there have been a few new additions to the series. Have a look.
Multi-team deathmatch - Tired of two-sided engagements? Black Ops 2 is allowing up to four teams to battle it out for the most kills.
Hardpoint - A brand-new game type for the series, but similar to the Headquarters game mode, Hardpoint has players rushing to gain control of a single point on the map and protect it from capture.
Domination - Two teams attempt to capture as many of the map’s control points as possible.
Team Deathmatch - Everyone who’s ever touched a shooter has played this mode. Two teams try to kill each other. The team that reaches the score cap or has the most kills at the end of the match is the winner.
Search and Destroy - There are no respawns. The objective of the attacking team is to detonate a timed bomb at one of the multiple bomb sites on the map. Either the defending or attacking team can eliminate all opposing players to earn a victory.
Capture the Flag - Players must guard their flag while attempting to bring the enemy’s flag back to base.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter
There hasn't been a particularly large amount of info coming out for Warfighter's multiplayer, but we've gathered a few details on what to expect in gameplay modes.
Team Deathmatch - Every shooter needs this mode. Medal of Honor: Warfighter is no exception.
Hot Spot - Five PETN (the abbreviation to some fancy words for explosives) caches are spread across random locations in the multiplayer map. The first team to capture and defend three out of the five locations is the winner.
Sector Control - Sector Control is a domination-style mode that tasks players with capturing and holding neutral points on the map. The team that reaches the score limit by keeping control of the most capture points wins the match.
Real Ops - This is Warfighter's version of Hardcore mode. HUD elements like radar and ammo indicators are stripped away to make a more "true-to-life" experience.
Combat Mission - The attacking team must overtake multiple enemy bases in stages, while the opposite team defends those locations from dug-in defensive positions. This mode functions similarly to Battlefield 3's Rush mode.
Halo 4 breaks up its multiplayer in two sections, competitive and cooperative. The cooperative mode is completely new and ambitious, but is seems we can also expect the same classic competitive modes to make a comeback.
War Games - The traditional Halo multiplayer game modes such as Slayer, Team Slayer, and Capture the Flag are found in War Games. Two new match types have been announced. The first, called Infinity Slayer, allows players to earn points to call down Ordinance Drops, supplying them with weapons and power-ups. Regicide places the top player in a Slayer-type match as "King." As the "King" racks up kills his value increases to other players, encouraging his opponents to kill the leader for a large bonus
Spartan Ops co-op - Spartan Ops is an episodic co-op series that follows the missions of the Spartan IVs on the UNSC Infinity. Players will be able to join with up to four friends to take on challenging co-op levels. The developer, 343 Industries, will be adding new co-op missions every few weeks with story based content that will tie-in to the main Halo storyline.
