It's not surprising to hear Activision talk highly of the new Call of Duty: Black Ops II . Publishers are supposed to promote their product, after all.
But did you know that Activision expects the upcoming sequel to offer the most/biggest entertainment ever seen on a single gaming disc? That's what Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg told The Hollywood Reporter ; he says the game will simply be a tremendous value:
"Call of Duty games already deliver a tremendous amount of value. There are several different modes of play. There’s the single-player campaign mode which is like playing in an action movie. There’s the multiplayer mode, which people literally play all year long with their friends — it’s got a tremendously long tail. There’s co-op mode, where you can play with a couple of different friends. And then Treyarch has always had this zombie zone, where you can stop playing the regular game and you can fight against the undead. Black Ops 2 is going to offer a more expansive and more robust zombie experience than it ever has before. It’s almost like a game within a game. When you add all that together, it’s just a tremendous value. It might be one of the best values ever put on a single disk."
Well, there's no doubt the multiplayer aspect alone will deliver countless hours of entertainment for the fans. So that all by itself makes Hirshberg's bold statement at least partially true. And considering that Treyarch usually gives us a relatively lengthy and satisfying campaign, perhaps it isn't such a stretch to make those claims. I mean, regardless of whether your love or hate the franchise.
