Last week, Activision and Treyarch announced their plans to release Call of Duty: Black Ops II on November 13, 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, and the announcement came with the launch of the official Call of Duty: Black Ops II website and a new reveal trailer.
Then later in the week, it was announced that the highly popular Zombie Mode would make its way into the new game in some form as well. If that wasn’t enough to get you excited for the game, a number of special pre-order incentives were placed on numerous websites across the Internet for purchasing the game early with these companies. However, Gamestop seems to be currently offering the most bang for your buck by allowing customers to unlock waves of pre-order bonuses for reserving early.
Currently, Gamestop is offering a double-sided poster featuring a variant illustration of the Call of Duty: Black Ops II cover on one side and the zombie artwork released last week on the other. 3 more waves of content will each be unlocked on July 1, August and October, as you get ready for launch in November. Read on for more details and check out Gamestop’s website for more details on the bonuses and to preorder the game.
About Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
Call of Duty: Black Ops II delivers the most groundbreaking and visceral Call of Duty experience ever. Set in the year 2025, Call of Duty: Black Ops II propels players into global conflict featuring advanced weaponry, robotics, and drone warfare in a new Cold War scenario whose seeds are being sown in today’s headlines. New graphics technology drives the stunning cinematic action of the single-player campaign’s branching storylines and non-linear missions.
“Hands down, this is the most ambitious Call of Duty ever,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “We are bringing disruptive innovation to the franchise and we are doing it on several fronts. We’re pushing the boundaries technologically, graphically, and from a narrative and gameplay perspective. At the same time, we need to stay true to the epic realism, authenticity, heart pumping adrenaline, and cinematic action that so many people love and expect from a Call of Duty game. Treyarch’s vision for Call of Duty: Black Ops II will redefine the Call of Duty franchise for the future-both literally and figuratively.”
“With Call of Duty: Black Ops II, the team is crafting an experience that Call of Duty fans have never seen before,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head for Treyarch. “We are challenging assumptions on every front, with the single player campaign, Zombies and multiplayer. In the campaign, we are creating a thought-provoking story that introduces branching storylines and meaningful choices that impact the narrative. Running in the multiplayer engine for the first time, Zombies gives players a bigger and more diverse set of gameplay experiences, as well as entirely new ways to wage war with the undead. And in multiplayer, we’re embracing all skill levels and play styles to give players more ways to engage. With Call of Duty: Black Ops II, we’re all in and we won’t rest until we’ve launched nothing less than the best Call of Duty we’ve ever made.”
