Explosive cold war covert action

Almost before you've had a chance to say 'Medal of Honor', Call of Duty: Black Ops is coming back with another high-octane military storyline following several covert CIA operations around the globe during the Cold War.

While the Call of Duty: Black Ops single-player campaign looks like offering more of the same explosive, heavily scripted and probably totally over the top action, Activision are promising lots of innovations in the multiplayer. The biggest is the inclusion in Call of Duty: Black Ops of CP, or Call of Duty Points. These are in addition to normal experience points, and will be used as in game cash.

This CP is necessary to buy weapons, other upgrades and personalizations for your Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer soldier. There will also be 'Wager Matches', which allow Call of Duty: Black Ops players to bet their cash against other players, meaning hot shots can get more CP even faster. It's still to be seen whether there will be suitable leveling in this mode, so novices don't become easy pickings for the expert players!

With pre-orders apparently outnumbering those of Modern Warfare 2, the biggest grossing entertainment launch ever, Call of Duty: Black Ops could well be about to become the biggest game in history.
