New Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 screenshots show typical desert environment
Even in the near future, it looks like war will mostly be set in the sandy, desert environment of the Middle East. I don't know the exact context, but a pair of new screenshots of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 have been released, depicting gameplay set somewhere in a foreign, Middle Eastern-looking country.
While the worldwide reveal trailer of Black Ops 2 showed a lot of gameplay in a destroyed Los Angeles in the year 2026, these new screenshots depict one of the game's new Strike Force missions, sandbox levels that provide nonlinear gameplay and multiple outcomes, in Yemen apparently.
Despite the hype and promises leading up to Black Ops 2, the screenshots look fairly standard to your typical Call of Duty gameplay. You've got a small squadron of men sprinting around a desert environment. The weapons and camo look cool, but the screenshots don't show anything groundbreaking to the series.
The screenshots are apparently from Call of Duty's recent tour around Europe.
