New Call of Duty: Black Ops trailer promotes upcoming trailer

Shares

A few weeks ago, Activision released the first official trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops. That trailer featured 53 seconds of footage, giving us tasty sneak peak at some of the new game’s vehicles and weapons along with lots of hints about the game’s story and setting. In short, it was awesome. So when we heard that a new CoD: Black Ops video was available, we were excited. Unfortunately, the new CoD: Black Ops trailer is just an advertisement for the upcoming reveal of another trailer that will air on ESPN on May 18. We’re calling shenanigans on this ridiculously short and unsatisfying tease…

Although, the today’s trailer had its moments (all 15 seconds of them), we were pretty disappointed. If you missed the first debut trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops, you can check it out below or examine the screenshots in our frame-by-frame dissection of the video. You can also find a thorough list of confirmed details by our own David Houghton, here.

    Well MW2 debut trailer was debuted for the NBA Eastern Conference finals on TNT. Remember? This is nothing new. I want the choice to kill or not kill little Asian kids holding gong sticks.

    WHY ESPN?! Ugh. Games..gaming... I guess but pleh. Am I wrong for wanting it teased on something that's based in a little more relevancy than "herpa derp score some points!"

    I love how my Lost Planet 2 advertisement was longer than the actual trailer of the trailer.

    I really hope Activision keeps this going, and that the commercial on the 18th is just a tease for like, another upcoming Black Ops promo. And then that promo could be a behind-the-scenes about the making of the previous teasers. And then they could do a vignette about how much fan excitement the previous teasers and BTS on the teasers has created. That would be awesome.
