After much waiting and speculating, we finally know who is developing “Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified” for PlayStation Vita, as well as details on the game's multiplayer and single-player campaign.
Find the first gameplay footage here.
Developed by Nihilistic Software, developers of previous PS Vita first-person shooter “Resistance: Burning Skies, “Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified” will feature all the elements that you have come to expect from the franchise, which means you’ll have access to familiar elements like Create-a-Class, Perks, Prestige Levels, and of course, dual analog stick controls.
“One of Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified’s compelling features is the fact that you can take the established gameplay everyone knows and loves and bring it to the PS Vita,” says the game’s producer at Activision, Neven Dravinski.
“Black Ops Declassified’s” campaign will feature covert missions that bridge the story gap between the original “Black Ops” and the upcoming release of “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2”. The touch-screen will serve as a method to perform melee attacks and throw grenades.
While the campaign sounds like your standard “Call of Duty”, it’s the multiplayer that will keep you playing for months to come.
On Tuesday afternoon the first details on “Black Ops Declassified’s” multiplayer surfaced. “Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified” will support eight player multiplayer featuring 4-on-4 Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed, and Drop Zone.
“We’ll have a variety of game modes and maps, including some that are custom made for PS Vita and others that leverage fan favorites from the Black Ops series, but tailor made for PS Vita,” explains Dravinski.
“Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified” is set for release this November. Sony and Activision will also be offering a limited-edition PS Vita hardware bundle that comes with the game.
