Call of Duty Black Ops II on Wii U takes warfare to all new levels previously unseen before…
Frank Woods, war veteran and hero of Call of Duty Black Ops, returns to finish his tail as Call of Duty Blacks Ops II story spans generations that will see Woods and members of the Mason family face a common enemy: Raul Menendez.
You’ll fight through time as you take on missions from 1980’s Afghanistan right through to the near future, where weapons tech isn’t cutting edge, its bleeding edge! You’ll ride across sandy terrain on horses, take to the turrets of Humvees and pilot state-of-the-art jets and even control four-legged behemoths that contain amazing firepower.
Throughout the intense and heart pounding campaign but you’ll be dropped into Strike Force Missions, where you’ll take command of human and mechanical assets as you dive into a sandbox/RTS environment to capture objectives or free hostages. The success or failure in these missions will alter your Black Ops II experience.
Call of Duty Black Ops II takes the online multiplayer to new heights as a wealth of new modes and options make their debut alongside old favourites.
The Create-a-Class receives an update with the all-new “Pick 10” allocation system which allows you to trade items from one class to another, giving you almost endless possibilities to create the ultimate soldier.
New to Call of Duty Black Ops II is Score Streaks, which see you earning points for your actions during multiplayer matches from killing an enemy player to protecting team-mates with the Assault Shield.
It’s not all run-and-gun in Black Ops II, with more sophisticated weapons and attachments at your disposal you’ll need to look before you leap. Attachments such as the Target Finder, that’ll identify enemies and allies with ease, or the Millimetre Wave Scanner that’ll show stationary targets at close range, even when they’re hidden behind something.
You’ll also have a wealth of firepower to command like the VTOL of Hellstorm Missiles that will cut through your enemies when used at the right moment!
Call of Duty Black Ops II introduces new online modes that take make playing CoD more like a sport than a game as Leagues and CODcast are introduced.
In the Leagues, you’ll play a preliminary match that’ll see you match with other players from around the world based on your skill, from there it’s up to you to compete and climb to the higher leagues.
CODCast gives the FPS arena a sporting feel as players become the CODcaster to deliver play-by-play coverage of an ongoing match.
As CODcaster, you’ll get picture-in-picture that shows every player in the game and their stats, a map view so you can see all player locations and the ability to listen in on player chat.
With Call of Duty Black Ops II, developer Treyarch is taking the established single player and multiplayer components and making them into an all-new Call of Duty experience that shouldn’t be missed.

old favourite Care Package or the all new MQ-27 Dragonfire Drone and select your loadouts.
