It’s been a long time coming, but Activision finally pulled back the curtain on the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified for the PS Vita, showing off a trailer at the very end of Sony’s Gamescom conference on Tuesday. The trailer, embedded above, showed off the game in action, while also announcing support for 4-vs-4 multiplayer over wi-fi. It also promised new multiplayer maps while showing off Black Ops favorite Nuketown, which doesn’t strike me as entirely new.
Also revealed by Activision community manager Dan Amrich on the PlayStation Blog was that the game is being developed by Nihilistic Software. For those keeping track at home, they developed Resistance: Burning Skies for the PS Vita, which met with less-than-stellar reviews.
Finally, it was also announced that the game would also be available in a bundle along with a shiny new PS Vita, complete with custom Call of Duty-inspired graphics on the rear touchpad. The bundle and game are slated for November.
While Resistance‘s debut (and likely only entry) on the Vita wasn’t the must fun, the game was functionally solid and showed that a first-person shooter can be done on Sony’s handheld. Hopefully they’ll deliver an actual story to go along with their solid mechanics this time around.
