May 30, 2010Written by Christopher Gordon-Douglas

Black Ops is the next iteration in the popular first person shooter franchise Call of Duty, being developed by Treyarch and published by Activision. In previous interviews Treyarch have stated their intent to bring a fresh new feel to the series as well as going about saying it will be one of the best in the series.

Treyarch have shown some gameplay footage, most notably the level Slaughterhouse level, and Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia has revealed the origins of this level recently in an interview with Videogames Daily.

“Often, we’ve created a single-player environment and modified it for multiplayer. But a lot of it’s been the other way round. The Slaughterhouse city level was initially created inside of multiplayer. It’s different in the single-player experience, but the point is it started there.”

“All the new maps we make are unique to MP,”

“They’re 100 percent for multiplayer; there’s nothing reproduced from single-player.”

Treyarch community manager Josh Olin also stated that the stealth crossbow that you posses in the WMD level also originated from multiplayer.

CoD: Black Ops is on course to lock horns with other FPS games that are about to be released such as Crysis 2, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Medal Of Honor. Treyarch have also promised CoD fans that Black Ops will be 3 games in one. Call of Duty Black Ops releases November 9th 2010, while you wait check out the latest trailer.
