That interface looks nothing like the one from the official videos. Have to wonder how authentic that is...

I can easily believe the highest level is 55 though...that would basically confirm cod points are back.

Just read there will be no cod XP this year. Probably cost them a fortune to put that show on, so I'm not really surprised. I wonder how they're going to reveal the MP now. With blops they had a media focused event, and it was kinda hard to get solid info since most games journalists range from casual observer to jaded cod hater.

I hope they put something together for the fans. We got so much info out of cod XP even if we didn't attend. With blops there was still a lot of unknowns until release.

It does look different. It was reported by the same place as the level cap. Black Ops 2 ‏@BlackOpsIINews

There are some other shows that they could do a big MP reveal. Wherever it happens, I hope it happens soon!!!! smile.gif

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/news/news-11959-No-Call-of-Duty-XP-Event-this-Year--Says-Activision.html


In a statement on the One of Swords community blog, Activision said "Last year's Call of Duty XP was a great way to celebrate our Call of Duty community and reveal Call of Duty Elite.

“Each year we try to surprise and delight our fans and this year we are planning to host some new experiences for our fans around the globe including at Gamescom later this summer in Cologne, Germany,” Acti continued.

Could be just two months away from their reveal then.

It'd be awesome if they put together some sort of road show where fans could just play the game. Cod XP was a cool idea...but man, it was such a circus. The focus was on everything but the actual game.

I could see them showing off zombies at comic con and then MP at gamescom.

Maybe there's some big MLG event between now and then? Seems to be a big focus of theirs, the treyarch guys talk a lot about pro gaming.

Tweet from @DavidVonderhaar: Finally got to see the video wall. If you know what to look for you will find MP footage in it. Don't tell anyone.

This is the video wall I assume he's talking about:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=eSNPtFOPWcc#t=458s

12:10 to 12:20. No hud, its third person, but you can tell its MP just by the way the players move.

Not really much to go on, but you get a little peek at three maps. You can see the quad rotor fly by for a bit, and there's some odd looking equipment planted. Also thought it was kind of odd that the players are carrying two assault rifles each in the first shot, dunno if it means anything.

Looks like COD. tongue.gif

Everything is 5x5. Carry on.



I wonder if he is referring to the number of players in basically all game types?

Nahhh....I think he's just using the expression 5x5 casually.

Ah, ok. Can't say I have ever heard that expression. It certainly seemed odd that they would drop the number of players.

Yeah it's a radio thing. Coming in 5x5 means loud and clear....lower numbers mean less so. No idea what he was responding to.

Seems like they've basically gone dark again, but they're hinting really strongly at big things for gamescom in August.

I hate the idea of preorder bonuses in general, and I absolutely despise the idea of preorder bonus maps....but....

I love nuketown. smile.gif

I'm guessing they will give you a code to download the map. I'm wondering how much that sucker is going to go for on Ebay. With all the Nuketown love, you could probably get $40 for that code alone. I am very tempted to try that since I could live without N-Town.

I got the BLOPS 2 Dog Tags from the Best Buy pre-order. I am going to throw those on Ebay. I am seeing $7-$10 as the going rate. biggrin.gif

I pre-ordered my Blops II from Gamestop months ago as it was first announced. I wonder if they will give me a code when I pick the game up?

After months of living with the denial of a failed prototype, I think I am happy with the design for unlocks & progression systems.

Hopefully that means they made some major changes. I'm not 100% happy with the way either blops or mw3 does it.

I was hoping to hear some news coming out of Comic-Con but it doesn't seem likely. I have heard the big MP reveal will be at the games conference in Germany in August.
