There’s no denying that Call of Duty is one of the biggest and most successful gaming franchises in history. That’s why you can’t blame people for wanting to find as much as they can about the franchise’s latest installment — Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
Last month, Black Ops 2’s rumored list of Killstreaks, Missions and Perks were leaked but with no additional or supporting information following it, fans of the series were left unclear whether any of that information was actually real or if any of it would make it to the game. Today, we’ve got some additional information mostly focused on the multiplayer maps you should expect in Black Ops 2. Whats interesting about this is that the maps mentioned in the original leak are once again described here, giving the earlier report a little more credibility.
Here’s the list of Black Ops 2 maps:
“Chinese Supercarrier. Open engagements on the deck, with great close quarter fights through the hull.”
“Port of Singapore. Good for close quarters engagements and verticality.”
“Hidden drone facility in the heart of the Mynamar jungles. Great long engagements down the center, fun close quarter fights through the facility.”
“Los Angeles bullet train station. Good long to medium engagements up and down the bullet train tracks.”
“Luxurious super yacht. Frantic, yet controlled close quarters engagements.”
“Set in a ruined downtown Los Angeles after an invasion”
“Pakistan nuclear power plant. Battle for control of the nuclear cooling tower and the surrounding facilities.”
“Floating resort in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Tight corners and angles throughout.”
“Peshawar, Pakistan. Great urban engagements in the flooded streets.”
“Fight through this hillside mansion, in the Hollywood Hills. Hectic close quarters engagements.”
“Run down section of Panama. Great close quarters engagements and tough chokes to fight over.”
“Urban streets of Yemen. Tight alleys and close quarters engagements.”
“Wind farm in the steep hills of Yemen. Fight across the different tiers and angles.”
“Border town between China and Kyrgyzstan. Classic engagements and destinations to fight over.”
One of the noticeable changes in this new list is that it no longer includes the U.S.S. Barack Obama, which was originally rumored to be one of Black Ops 2’s major set pieces. The list also includes several new maps such as Express, Meltdown, Raid, Socotra, and Village, bringing the map total to 14.
Black Ops 2 is scheduled to hit the shelves on November 13, 2012. It will be available for the Playstation 3, xbox 360 and PC.
