Yup. Just two brand new screenshots for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. I know, it's a lot to process all at once but I think you'll manage. The first screen depicts a secret service agent, while the other shows off those quadrocopters that will be buzzing all around the game.
I got to see firsthand what the new Black Ops II looks like in action last week finally. It was the same hands-off preview that Dale wrote about, and I have to agree with a lot of what he said in his preview.
What really blew me away was the Strike Force portion of the presentation. It works exactly as Dale described it, with the player able to switch to multiple different characters on the battlefield on the fly, or even just hang back and control the situation like a real-time strategy game.
At the very least, there was one new thing I took away from the presentation, and it was the realization that the man depicted in the initial screenshots is not main playable character David Mason. Rather, he's your partner, much like Frank Woods was in the first Black Ops. Not really a big deal, but figured I would clarify it.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be out this November for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
