Despite receiving poor reviews (32 / 100 on metacritic), Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified has been selling well in the UK, entering the sales chart at number 16. Just behind launch title Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Black Ops Declassified is now the second biggest PS Vita title in the UK. Looks like Sony’s marketing paid off.
Black Ops: Declassified on the PS Vita has 34 trophies to unlock, including a Platinum, four Gold and a massive 11 Silver trophies. However, it looks like the Platinum trophy will be quite difficult to obtain, requiring skill from the player is many of the game’s missions and operations. Are you up to the challenge?
The North Americal version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified will include a free copy of Call of Duty 3: Roads to Victory released on the PSP back in March 2007. The game scored just 64% on metacritic but a free game is a free game. The news was revealed by Activision’s blogger Dan Amrich on his blog One of Swords.
Nihilistic Software has tweeted that the North American version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified has gone Gold, while the game in other regions is still in development. The European version will take longer due to the number of languages the game needs to be localised to, but it shouldn’t be too far behind.
The PlayStation.Blog recently held a Q&A session with Robert Huebner, head of Nihilistic, who are developing the PS Vita exclusive title. The interview reveals new details about the game since the first trailer of the title was show off at Gamescom back in August. New details include weapon modding, perks and information about the single-player missions.
Sony’s official PlayStation Vita Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified bundle will include a voucher to download a digital copy of upcoming FPS, not a physical copy. The bundle also includes a 4GB memory card, which will presumably be completely used up by the game once downloaded.
In a recent interview with CVG, it’s been revealed that neither Infinity Ward or Treyarch have had much input in developing their first FPS PS Vita title, Black Ops: Declassified. Despite the two companies developing one of the biggest gaming franchises, Sony’s Nihilistic Software have been developing the title.
Earlier this week was the first time Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified was shown to the world having been first announced at E3 back in June. Following from the Gamescom trailer, we now have screenshots of the game for you to take a look at. The game promises to be the full COD experience in a portable form, including eight player multiplayer.
