First Black Ops II multiplayer trailer released

If you're looking forward to Call of Duty: Black Ops II because of the single player campaign, you're looking forward to the game for all the wrong reasons. A lot of Call of Duty players out there know that it's all about the multiplayer, and today Activision and Treyarch gave us our first glimpse at the mode. There's plenty of Black Ops II multiplayer action to check out in this new trailer, which is posted past the break.

The look we get at Black Ops II's multiplayer in this trailer isn't too terribly long – the video comes in at just over 2 minutes long – but there's enough footage to get a good feel for the mode. Surprisingly enough, the multiplayer found in Black Ops II does look quite a bit different from the multiplayer in other Call of Duty games, but then again, we suppose it would have to be considering that Black Ops II is set in the year 2025.

This means that there will be new, futuristic weapons to use, including a turret called the Guardian that uses heat to drive foes back, and the Dragonfire helicopter, which you can remotely control to defeat your enemies from a safe distance. We also get a glimpse at the A.G.R. mech, which packs a lot of firepower into a smaller, remote controlled package. There are also a few surprises that we'll let you discover on your own, so give the trailer a watch below:

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is launching on Xbox 360, PC, and PS3 on November 13, 2012. Some seem to think that the Call of Duty franchise has already peaked, and that Black Ops II won't make as much money as its predecessors, but we have a feeling that this one is going to do just fine. We'll undoubtedly be getting more and more Black Ops II media in as we inch closer to its November release date, so keep it here at SlashGear for more information!
