Treyarch has been boasting that there are actually three games in Call of Duty: Black Ops single-player, multiplayer, and Zombies. Though the developer has discussed the first two games in detail, the third leg of the Blops 2 tripod has been kept under wraps–at least, until now. Along with the worldwide reveal trailer of the new Zombies mode, weve gotten details on what we can expect from the robust co-op mode, and its looking like itll be the best undead slaying mode yet. Want to know why? Have a look. Tranzit is the brand new open world in Black Ops 2 Zombies. A post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested world is free for you to explore, and its full of secrets for you to wander off and discover. Up to four players can join together and literally walk from one point of interest to another. Zombies has also stepped out of the Cold War and WWII eras and will have players encountering buildings, locations, and enemies youd expect to see in a modern-era zombie apocalypse. Youll hunker down and fend off undead waves in gas stations, diners, farmhouses, and bus stations.

This time they are on a bus. Well, you are on a bus, the zombies are trying to get a free ride. This is everything you need to know about Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 ‘s cooperative experience spelled out in plain English. There is no campaign co-op in Black Ops 2. The game features two modes of Zombies and multiplayer versus bots. Four players can play via LAN or system link including combo co-op with various number of local players per system.
An online game can only be played if all players have a Gold account. Otherwise you are restricted to local co-op play. Four players are supported in both LAN and online play.
Black Ops 2 technical review
Hi there! I have previously done quite some research on the technical details of MW2 and MW3, and because a lot of people have asked for it, here is one for Black Ops 2 as well. Do note that this is based on observation only: I have not reverse-engineered the game, so some information here might be slightly off or completely incorrect.

I just wanted to know if through this client, I’ll be able to search for a normal lobby like you would in the actual game, by choosing one of the playlists and joining a bunch of random players or a group of friends against other random players. TLDR: I don’t really know a lot about this client and the development schedule so will there be standard 6v6 lobbies created at random like in the actual game?
You can however still find servers that are not trickshotting and join those. The only way to find lobbies are through the server browser. It is mostly populated by trickshotting servers but servers like Awog and Namelessnoobs have TDM and other servers. Matchmaking what you described won’t ever be a thing I don’t think, we more focus on dedicated servers, CoD Clients don’t really get the playerbase to maintain quick and working matchmaking these days.
We are working on quick-match features which will throw you into a ‘normal’ server with players in it. Register Login. Standard 6v6 Multiplayer lobbies?

well, maybe back in MW2 days and even pushing into BO2 that was a little true, but not any more. the reality is you’re placed in a lobby based on a mix of.
If there’s one constant thing plaguing Black Ops 2 players now regardless of platform, it’s the matchmaking. Contrary to what some people might think, it doesn’t match you with players around your area based on skill. This is the case for League Play matches, but for the majority of users who play Public Matches, this isn’t the case. Fortunately, Treyarch has detailed how Black Ops 2’s matchmaking works. But unfortunately, if matchmaking doesn’t work right for you, there’s not really anything listed to fix it.
So if you’re suffering from lag compensation still, sad to say, you’re still out of luck. According to the official Activision Support page , the first step in the matchmaking process starts at the playlist level.
Black Ops 2 League Play explained
The first new change Activision is considering is creating a game score for potential matches. Activision has a new scoring engine which can create scores for how players felt during a match based on many variables. Activision defines the variables that a score can be generated on by the following criteria. They use this criteria to generate a match score for how a player felt after a match.
The patent states that the matchmaking system could then assign a general coefficient to each of the variables depending on the importance of each.
IF this works like it was explained, this will be awesome for everyone with a possible size around the dedi location while playing Black Ops 2.

How Black Ops 2 handles ‘Prestige,’ adds levels to Combat Training, and focuses on Party Games
It’s fair to say that Treyarch’s track record in terms of cross-platform conversions is patchy at best, especially evident when the Xbox and PlayStation 3 versions of ‘s Call of Duty: Black Ops are compared directly. Lower frame-rates, lower resolution frame buffers, and PSN’s online issues gave the impression that the firm’s focus had been directed towards the Xbox version of the game, resulting in a sub-par experience for PS3 owners.
So how does Black Ops 2 fare? As we speak, Digital Foundry’s Tom Morgan is poring over all three versions of the game, having bought each at the midnight launch on Tuesday.
In the last of many features revealed before Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 ‘s November 13 launch, we return to the all-important multiplayer. Though hardcore shooter fans can throw themselves into the competitive arena and find fun, players with less skill often feel intimidated by the mode. Spawning and being beaten into the ground, as it turns out, isn’t any fun. There’s a lot Treyarch wants to do to address that feeling, such as offering tiered League matches and improving matchmaking; however, that can’t guarantee things will draw people into a world they may despise out of intimidation.
Combat Training To increase confidence levels of players who see more Kill Cam than game, Treyarch has focused its attention on Combat Training, the mode meant to introduce players to multiplayer basics against AI controlled bots. In Black Ops 2 , Combat Training users can earn experience points and level their online soldier in a mode dubbed ‘Boot Camp. Players can earn full experience points and level up to a maximum level of 10, which Game Design Director David Vonderhaar refers to as “graduating.
Players can rank up beyond level 10 in this mode, but are only given half of the usual XP they would earn online. Playing this mode is a great way to practice skills, learn maps and modes, and is a “really good way for newer players to experience the high end game,” Vonderhaar says. All modes also include public matchmaking, to make finding optimal games easier. The mode’s new name reflects Treyarch’s attitude toward the modes, which are meant to be played by groups to have fun.
Of course, matchmaking still exists for those looking for a quick pick-up game. To entice players into the section of online play, Party Games — unlike Wager Matches — now offer experience points.
