Call of Duty: Black Ops Launch Trailer Unveiled

Call of Duty: Black Ops will launch on November 9. It will be available on WindowsXbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, and the Nintendo DS. Activision has just released the official launch trailer.

Although the YouTube video says it was uploaded on Oct. 29, it was done then so it could render in HD and be tested properly. It was only publicly revealed on Halloween evening.

Call of Duty: Black Ops is the seventh installment of the Call of Duty series and the third game in the series to be developed by Treyarch. It is a sequel to the Treyarch's previous title in the series, Call of Duty: World at War. It is the first Call of Duty title set during the Cold War era. The MSRP of the Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows editions is $59.99. The Wii version is $49.99, and the DS version is $29.99.

"Hardened" and "Prestige" limited editions for PS3 and Xbox 360 will be available, just as with Modern Warfare 2. The Hardened Edition includes a SteelBook case, a medal with its display case, four exclusive co-op levels and an Xbox Live or PlayStation Home avatar outfit. MSRP is $79.99.

Watch the video and prepare to drool...

The Prestige Edition will offer everything that the Hardened Edition does, but adds a real RC-XD remote-control vehicle modeled after the in-game Killstreak reward, which gives video and audio feedback to the controller.  Looking good, just in time for the holidays.
