Activision's officially unveiling Call of Duty: Black Ops III on April 26, but it's not being secretive about the title. The latest teaser trailer outright states the game's name. That's not where the mystery lies. What...
Call of Duty: World at War's zombie mode was an incredible addition to the industry. It was a fully featured mode that was actually included in the base package, and I played the first map for 100 hours, easy. I still play z...
To the surprise of absolutely no one, the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise is well underway. If a Call of Duty game doesn't release, it doesn't actually count as a calendar year, you know. Activision C...
“I don't think I can ever go back to the old style of Call of Duty.” I've heard some variation of that sentence at least once per week since the launch of Advanced Warfare, and if I were Treyarch or Infinity Ward...


Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation is now out for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 for $14.99. You get four new multiplayer maps, a new gun, a new chapter in the Extinction co-op mode, and most important of all, you can play as the g...
The new trailer for Call of Duty Ghost's second DLC pack, Devastation, is pretty standard stuff for the first few minutes. You know -- the typical overview of maps, lots of gunfire, and an Eminem track laid over it. Then you...
Activision has just reported on their financials for the last quarter, and among the news they've announced that Sledgehammer Games will be leading the development of the next Call of Duty coming out this year. In the past, C...
There is room for Call of Duty in the gaming world -- I assure you. I don't know about milking it every damn year, but there is plenty of room for those of us who enjoy mindless first-person fun with our friends, oc...
Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts hits this Tuesday, and I can't think of a better way to get hype than with a video that shows absolutely no gameplay. Joking aside, while the live-action trailer "Epic Night Out" is nothing ...
We've already had three quarters of the Season Pass on offer so far in Black Ops II's lifespan, and we're finally on the last bit of DLC. Apocalypse is a curious prospect, with two remakes, two brand new maps, and a zombies m...
Ahead of tomorrow's big multiplayer event for Call of Duty: Ghosts -- there's going to be a livestream and everything -- Activision has put out an infographic summing up some of the series' most staggering statistics. And by ...
The very last piece of the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Season Pass is on the way, in the form of the map pack Apocalypse. The pack will feature four maps, two of them being remakes, and a new zombies mode that looks particula...
It's been a decent run for Call of Duty: Black Ops II's DLC, but all things must come to and end and the end is nigh. It's only fitting that Treyarch's fourth and final pack for the game is called Apocalypse. Releasing first ...
We know this trailer is for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, but that's about it. Featuring the phrase "Every story has a beginning...and an end," the video seems to hint at a new Zombies map with a giant killer robot for reasons...
One of the silliest stories of late comes to a satisfying conclusion today. After Call of Duty: Ghosts was confirmed for Wii U (though the details were "mysterious"), the game's producer said that, actually, he couldn't be ce...
Call of Duty: Black Ops II owners on the Xbox 360 have had access to the Vengeance expansion for a couple of weeks now. So what about PlayStation 3 and PC players? Your vengeance will be had starting on August 1. The expansio...
If you're keeping score, Call of Duty: Black Ops II has offered up one so-so and one stellar map pack so far -- and now, we're on part three of the four-piece Season Pass, Vengeance. In typical Treyarch fashion, four maps are...
For those of you who still play Call of Duty: Black Ops II, you'll want to boot up your system of choice this weekend for a Double XP event, starting Friday June 28th at 10AM Pacific, all the way through the morning of Monday...
Following Revolution and Uprising, Call of Duty: Black Ops II will get its third downloadable content pack starting July 2, 2013 on Xbox 360. Priced at $15 (1200 Microsoft Points) without a Season Pass, this add-on has anoth...
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's Revolution map pack will be free to play on Xbox 360 this weekend, Activision's Dan Amrich announced, who only confirmed the promotion for Microsoft's console. The promotion has the content playabl...

Fresh off the Call of Duty: Uprising DLC release, Treyarch has announced a Double Weapon XP weekend for Black Ops II, which starts at 10AM PDT today (right around the time of this writing). Since we already had a real Double ...
So far in Call of Duty: Black Ops II's lifecycle, we've had one map pack, which wasn't quite the revolution that was promised to augment that expensive $50 Season Pass. But of course, in true Activision fashion, we have three...
Arriving later next week, Call of Duty: Black Ops II's Uprising add-on pack comes with Mob of the Dead, a zombie mode set on Alcatraz that, well, you'll see in this latest video. As a follow-up to the recent behind...
The new Uprising downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops II is out next week and it's going to include a new zombie mode called "Mob of the Dead." The team at Treyarch went to Alcatraz to capture the feel of the pri...

Following the Revolution DLC comes the next set of downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, arriving April 16 on the Xbox 360 first. Uprising, as it's called, will include four new multiplayer maps, plus a new zo...
A new absurd trailer is out for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and it showcases some of the crazier microtransaction based content, like graffiti riot shields, bacon guns, and benjamin bling pistols. It's set to hit the PS3 and...
Tripwire Interactive president John Gibson is disappointed in this generation of gamers, and the Red Orchestra developer lays the blame at the feet of Call of Duty. According to Gibson, who focus tested some hardcore CoD...
If you were worried fee-to-pay microtransactions were going to become the norm ... prepare to be justified. Activision has announced it'll be jumping aboard the bandwagon tomorrow, introducing incremental buy-me-ups for Call ...
Yeah, girl! SHAKE IT! Here's our review for Call of Duty: Black Ops II: Revolution if you're curious.
The first add-on for Black Ops II has finally made its way to PlayStation 3 and PC. The DLC, titled Revolution, was a timed-exclusive for Xbox 360 and released in January 2013. Available for $15, Revolution features...

The first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II is ready to hit the PlayStation 3 and PC platforms on February 28, 2013. Sadly, there was no mention of the Wii U version at all in the announcement, but I've reached out to A...
Treyarch has taken a unique approach to Call of Duty games that I've always admired. Essentially developing three games in one, their idea to meld campaigns, zombies, and multiplayer into one giant package in Black Ops II is ...
Call of Duty: Black Ops II? Yeah, it was pretty great. Treyarch really brought it with their latest shooter, implementing a ton of new elements to make a Call of Duty title fresh again. And it looks like they're continuing t...
Okay, bravo Activision. This was actually funny. The new Black Ops II Revolution downloadable content is coming soon. It's going to feature four new maps, a new weapon, and a new zombie mode where you can actually play as the freaking zombies. You know what that means? You won't have time for real life anymore! So what can you do about it? Hire someone to take over your life with The Replacer.
A leak late last month gave us the heads up on the Revolution map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, but now we have a video to go on alongside Treyarch's announcement of the first of four "DLC events" planned for the game...
If you've been itching for news on more Call of Duty: Black Ops II maps, this news is your huckleberry. Season Pass holders already have access to the Nuketown Zombie map, but it appears as if your first bit of real content w...
If you dropped the extra cash on the hardened or care package editions of Black Ops II, you received an extra zombie map for your troubles. Now, Activision has made said map, called "Nuketown Zombies," available for everyone...
Call of Duty: Black Ops II has been patched to address a number of balance issues, most notably the SMG. The close-assault weapon class has been criticized for its powerful hip fire capabilities, and the latest patch, current...
Hey, Treyarch and Activision. We're friends, right? We've known each other for awhile now. You see, Christmas is coming up. I've got bills to pay and gifts to buy. How 'bout sharing some of that BLOPS2 cash? What's $10,000 ou...
After spending the past two days with the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, I have found all my worries about the GamePad's ability to handle fast-paced first-person shooters melt away. In fact, I may now consider ...
The 99%. The military's increasing reliance on drones. China's monopoly of rare earth elements. Social media. Literally laying down everything for your country. These are but the many themes that the latest Call of Duty tackl...
[Update: Treyarch has responded by creating a new playlist called Chaos Moshpit that has Nuketown 2025 in its rotation. What a silly situation.] Treyarch has removed the multiplayer playlist containing the Nuketown 2025 map t...
Up until now, Treyarch had history to play with in crafting their stories. History is given an entertainment spin to fit their needs, sure, but a lot of what you see and do in their games are grounded in reality, to some ex...
We all know that the Call of Duty franchise rakes in the cash, but this one-day sales mark seems almost scary in size. Try $500 million in sales in 24 hours for the latest, Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Half a billion, folks. S...
Balancing, balancing, balancing. Developers do as much as they can to make sure their multiplayer is designed as best as possible before shipping, but it's when the title has made it into the public's hand that really puts ev...
