GameExpo III - Yes, it's a real thing!.. or will be...soon!
I can confirm, on behalf of T-Games that the GameExpo III will be released on GameExpo's second birthday - June the 26th, 2013.
This may seem a little far away, but think of it this way:
Dev kits have been given out to developers, so when the GameExpo III will be released, lots of content will be pre-made for it!
The GameExpo will not interferre with the NeXT at all - and to be honest, the NeXT will remain to be superior. The GameExpo III will still not be able to play content like music or other media, and will, as a result, not have the appropriate features.
La dee da dee da... doo dee doo.. wait.. you're actually reading this? Wowzers :D
So not long ago Activision released the reveal trailer for the second additional DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 titled "Uprising". The map features 4 new multi-player maps and 1 new zombies map. There is unfortunately no new game mode or weapon, however the new zombies map looks like it brings a plethora of new stuff that no one seems to have reported on yet. So let's dig in!
The first thing I noticed (and the most obvious) was that the zombies eyes were red. If you followed through the easter egg on the Black Ops zombie map 'Moon' we know that when the zombies eyes were yellow Samantha was in control, and when they were blue Richthofen was in control. In the trailer the staff from Treyarch said that the map has history from the 20's, 30's etc - so is this who was in control before Samantha? Guess we'll have to find out.
Whilst examining this frame I also noticed that there was a new creature in the background - some sort of fire dragon?
The third thing I noticed was that there are new (or old) weapons to kill those undead monsters with. This can be seen at 2:47 in the reveal trailer. Here is a screenshot:
The gun to the left of the shot looks almost identical to that of a Thompson that we saw last in Call of Duty: World at War. Here is a picture of a real life Thompson so you can compare:
The fourth thing I noticed is the most subtle thing. In some shots you can see a red light in the sky. This could be something as subtle as a simple re-coloring of the random box light; but it could be something else.
Could this be a signal to indicate something about the new fire dragon? Something else? Or as I said, a boring re-colour of the random box light.
The last thing I noticed is not really a fact, but instead a suggestion. The island this map is based on has an iconic lighthouse. In the map Call of the Dead for Black Ops the lighthouse played a big part for the easter egg - so maybe the lighthouse in this map is for a similar use?
So that's all I've got so far about this new map. Have you guys seen anything I haven't? Comment below!
