The game is being developed jointly by Treyarch and Raven Software, with Raven Software leading the development of the campaign mode. As we reported the other day, in addition to the two companies, partners such as Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games are also helping with development support. They've spent a fair amount of time creating a masterpiece, and every part of the game is said to be on another level of sophistication and innovation.

Pre-orders have already started in Japan for both the “Secret Edition” and the “Standard Edition” for each platform, and early pre-orders will grant players early access to the upcoming open beta.

campaign

Led by Raven Software, the campaign mode will be based on a historically-based story as in previous games in the series, with players forced to cooperate with a shadowy force that has infiltrated the highest levels of the US government, and turn against the organization they are part of.

There are a variety of situations, such as attacking a palace or robbing a casino, and there are also more dynamic scenes, such as racing around on a motorcycle. In addition to fierce gunfights, there are also missions with a variety of strategies, such as negotiating verbally or stealthily trying to avoid being noticed.

The game will feature the largest-ever desert map in Iraq, where players can enjoy a variety of strategies while experiencing dynamic changes in the environment. On the other hand, the enemy AI is also complex, making for a challenging battle.

Players will be able to equip themselves with not only new equipment, but also popular weapons and gadgets from previous games, such as the “RC-XD” and “Homing Knife.”

The story is set in the early 1990s, a time of growing distrust in politics following the collapse of the Soviet Union, the end of the Cold War, America's rise to superpower status, and the Gulf War. The main story is a hard-hitting spy thriller that explores who is friend and foe, and what the truth is.

Though the storyline is set after the Cold War, it connects with the 1986 flashbacks depicted in Black Ops 2, which is set in 2025. At the center of the story is Frank Woods, a veteran wounded by Raul Menendez, who issues orders from headquarters and the command room.

A new character, Troy Marshall, a leader with a strong sense of ethics, will appear as Woods' protégé. He will work with CIA director Jane Harrow, genius engineer Felix Newman, and mysterious assassin Sevati Dumas to complete his mission.

Another element that fans of the series will be interested in is the fact that enemies from previous games will become allies. With the appearance of Russell Adler, who appeared in “BOCW,” it seems that there will be scenes where the characters will fight alongside their former enemies.

In the campaign, a safe house like BOCW is prepared as a hub, and the fun of exploring the past is born in the setting of a former KGB secret military facility on the coast. In addition, the evidence board has been updated, and it is possible to arrange the summary of the campaign and evidence collected during the mission.

Improved controls, UI and damage system

The motions in this game have been redefined throughout the entire game.Omni MovementThe new movement system, called “Dash,” lets you dash in all directions and perform intense action like an action hero, with smooth slides and dives.

In addition, the game also has a function called “Intelligent Movement” that reduces the number of times you press the button, making it easier to operate when performing various actions such as climbing over obstacles. Settings can be finely adjusted from the options.

  • Dash Assist

  • Climbing Assist

  • Crouching Assist

You can turn these three items on and off. Of course, you can also use the traditional control settings, so you can adjust the settings for each player according to their skill and experience with previous games.

Previously, there were only four “damage zones” that reacted to attacks: the head, torso, lower left half of the body, and lower right half of the body. Now, these have been divided into nine. This allows for more detailed changes to the animation when shot.

The HUD in this title also provides a streamlined experience and can be styled to suit your needs, allowing streamers to choose a layout that suits their environment, center the information for focus, or display almost nothing at all, all in a fine-tuned way to suit the player's preferences.

The game aims to reinforce the importance of leveling and XP, and uses a classic prestige system. You can earn rewards by showing how much you've mastered the game with 10 levels of prestige, and once you've reached the highest level, you can reach an additional 1,000 levels as a “Master.” The prestige system will be implemented from launch day.

Multiplayer

Details of the multiplayer will be announced at the broadcast “Call of Duty: Next” to be held on August 29th, Japan time, but some information has been unveiled. In addition to the information ban, an open beta is also scheduled to be held this fall.

The play styles supported since launch are the “Enforcer” who likes killing, the “Recon” who is good at intelligence, and the “Strategist” who sacrifices his sights for his team. Weapons, equipment, and gadgets are based on these three styles. In addition, the “Theater Mode” that existed in the previous work has also been revived, allowing you to record your cool play.

There are 16 new maps in total: 12 core 6v6 maps and 4 strike maps that can be enjoyed in both 6v6 and 2v2.

Zombies

The popular Zombies mode returns with an improved round system. Continuing the story of Dark Aether, two new maps will be available at launch that combine popular features with new elements. In addition, many new and returning features have been added exclusively for Zombies mode. More information on this mode will be shared later this year.
