Modern Warfare 4 supposedly leaked, Captain Price to return

I dont believe this article in the slightest but still worth posting.

———————-

ThisisXbox.com writer Jason Andrews met the voice actor of Captain Price, Murray, recently while on a flight. While Andrew’s talked to Murray, he had this to say, “On Monday I am off to meet Infinity Ward about the next game, Modern Warfare 4, I’m doing work on the sequel to Modern Warfare 3, it carries straight on and I only ever appear in the Modern Warfare games…”

His statements seem to confirm a few things, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 is in development by Infinity Ward and will be a direct sequel to Modern Warfare 3, Captain Price will return, and Price will not be featured in Black Ops II, despite rumors of his inclusion.

Based on some previous news leaks and announcements, it looks like we won’t be seeing this game until 2014, as Sledgehammer is developing next years game. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Black Ops 2 Zombies Mode – 10 things you need to know

You’re looking a little tense, Call of Duty. Like you’re sitting on a secret of some kind. I think I can guess the nature of that secret. Oh, your close-cropped scalp and rifle-mounted PDA scream “military shooter”, but is that a touch of gangrene I notice hanging off your ear? A peppering of large intestine around your mouth? And what’s this pressing, inescapable stench of decay and pestilence? Come to think of it, why are you eating my leg?

Treyarch’s Black Ops 2 is a welcome refresh for all sorts of reasons. The new multiplayer Wildcards, for instance, are designed to play havoc with the class system handed down from Infinity Ward. The presence of bonkers-sounding real-time strategy missions, meanwhile, should make for a more replayable campaign. But it’s the new, improved Zombies Mode which promises to really blow the competition out of the water, smearing sizzling hot undead action across an apocalyptic open world. Here’s some more info to chew on.

1. The bus is your fortress

Black Ops 2 Zombie Mode’s centrepiece is Tranzit, the aforesaid open world mash-up. It breaks down into five maps – a bus terminal, a roadside diner, a farm, a power plant and a city – linked by roads which can be traversed on foot (if you’re feeling adventurous in a suicidal kind of way) or by way of a roaring great rust-covered bus, bristling with makeshift defences. I’m not sure you’ll be able to drive the bus, but you sure as hell can defend it – zombies will clamber up the sides, break through the windows and even stand on the roof. The hope is that you’ll be able to customise the vehicle, spending cash on things like barricades, as you would a Black Ops map.

2. You don’t have to be where the action is (but you probably will be)

We’re told that players will be able to roam freely across the world of Tranzit, regardless of what their comrades are doing. Splitting up could be to your team’s advantage at times, as it’s suggested that returning map fixtures like the weapon-randomising Mystery Boxes will move around, even jumping between areas.

3. Building for a better tomorrow

There comes a time in any post-apocalyptic scenario – a time to declare an end to all the shooting and stabbing and melting, a time to rebuild. If it helps, you’ll be able to shoot/stab/melt things by building in Black Ops 2’s Zombies Mode. Treyarch has expanded the map unlock system of prior Zombies Modes into what smells strongly like a Dead-Island-esque crafting system. You can rip the doors off cars, for instance, strap them to a frame and use the results as a riot shield (by the looks of the video below, the services of a workbench of some description will be required). Some of these “buildables” will be portable, some won’t, some are for zombie-bopping and some aren’t. It’s all pleasantly mysterious.

 

4. Tranzit shares maps with Survival Mode

In a sneaky bit of cost-cutting, Treyarch has adapted areas from Tranzit to serve as maps in old-style Survival mode. They’re not one and the same map, mind – in the words of lead designer Jimmy Zielinski (via G4) “the play spaces… have been retooled with new layouts and features sets that create a unique experience from the story mode.”

Black Ops 2: Robert Downey Jr. ditches Iron Man suit for a jet in new trailer

Activision, obviously paddling around in an ocean full of cash following the continued success of the Call of Duty video games, have employed British Madonna ex and Lock-Stock director Guy Ritchie to direct their latest live action trailer for Black Ops 2. And he’s brought some friends along for the ride.

A star-studded cast, the trailer (called “Surprise”) sees Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., ditch his Iron Man suit in favour of a fighter jet before being blown out of the sky.

Eagle-eyed viewers will also spot YouTube weapons expert FPSRussia with a fleet of AR Drones in the video. And no, we’re not sure if “YouTube weapons expert” is a real job title.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 hits every major gaming platform on November 13 (and some rubbish ones too).

Activision also recently revealed that the stat-tracking, deathmatch-map mastering Call of Duty: Elite service is to become free for all to use following the launch Black Ops 2.

First launching in 2011 alongside Modern Warfare 3 and being offered with premium subscription features attached, Elite let users delve into the fine details of their online play styles, checking out reams of stats and heat maps based on their performance, as well as offering instant access to paid-for DLC map and content packs.

This will all become free when Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 launches. Maps will land as separate bundles, hitting Xbox 360 consoles first for 1,200 points, or 4,000 points for a season pass that will unlock all maps as they become available.

Those currently paying for the Elite service with Modern Warfare 3 will continue to benefit from their subscription until it runs out. Following the Black Ops 2 launch, it’s presumed that all Modern warfare 3 players too will get free access to the full suite of Elite features.
