Activision has released a 30 second video clip of single-player footage from the Wii U version of Call Of Duty: Black Ops II, featuring squirrel suits, jet packs, and what looks to be a silky smooth frame rate.
Although Black Ops II was only mentioned in passing during the European Wii U preview last week it was a centrepiece of the American event, with the footage below introduced by Activision Publishing boss Eric Hirshberg.
At the time he promised the game would run at a full 60 frames per second and would incorporate the ‘full Call Of Duty’ experience, including multiplayer and – it’s implied – Zombies mode. The game will also feature Wii U exclusive features such as using the GamePad touchscreen as a map and allowing co-op play from one console, with one player on the GamePad and the other on the TV.
Details are still sketchy though and it’s not clear when exactly the Wii U version will be released. It’s currently only in the ‘launch window’, but last week so too was Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and that’s already been upgraded to launch day (November 30 in the UK). We wouldn’t be surprised to find Black Ops II and others follow the same route.
In other Black Ops II news what purports to be a list of single-player missions and multiplayer maps has appeared on the Se7enSins forum, based on information supposedly dug out of the beta multiplayer code. Whether it’s accurate or not we couldn’t say but we’re not repeating it here for fear of spoilers, so
