Sony‘s keynote presentation at this year’s E3 included a brief mention of two big-name titles slated to hit the PlayStation Vita at the end of this year. One of these, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, has now been detailed a little bit better.
Predictably enough, Black Ops Declassified is set to bridge the gap between 2010’s Call of Duty: Black Ops and the upcoming Black Ops 2. The campaign will work a little differently than we’ve come to expect from a Call of Duty game, relying on Special-Ops missions to tell the story, rather than the full mission structure of the console titles. There is also multiplayer that is ‘tailored for the PS Vita,’ in case these spec-ops missions don’t fill your appetite for a handheld Call of Duty.
I like the idea of a story based around spec-ops missions: quick, bite-sized tasks that you can complete in a fairly short amount of time, in case you’re commuting somewhere, or just have a few minutes to kill in a waiting room, and don’t have the time or desire to sit through a console-length mission. Hopefully the missions will be a little more engaging than those in Unit 13, which tried something similar.
I want to hear more about the multiplayer, though. I’d like to know how exactly it’s being ‘tailored’ for the Vita. More details on that, the exact style of spec-ops missions we can expect, and, of course, a release date are doubtlessly forthcoming, so as always, as soon as we know something more, you will too.
