Last time we were writing about Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified we were trying to establish who was actually making it – educated guesses abound, but we’ve still not really had any details through on the game apart from a brief synopsis and a box-art.
That’s all about to change, as the game – a portable version of something to do with Black Ops – will be on show next week at gamescom in Germany. We’ve got some hands on time with the game scheduled but we’re also expecting it to feature in Sony’s press conference.
Activision, at least, are happy to claim that it’s going to stay true to the main console versions. The publisher’s European vice president Michael Sportouch says that it’ll offer up “a true Call of Duty experience” and Activision is “really excited about the opportunities that the Vita could offer us in terms of connecting with a new audience.”
Whether that’s all PR talk or not we’ll have to wait and see, but hopes are high that this will play to the Vita’s strengths and not just try to emulate the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. Something bite-sized like Unit 13 would suit me just fine, but I presume it’ll be first person.
