The Gamescom is probably the most exciting thing that has happened to the PS Vita so far, and I’m doing my best to report about all the cool announcements that have been done by Sony and their partners during their conference yesterday.
Many of us have been complaining about the lack of AAA titles on the vita… or the lack of any titles, really (ok, there are a few, Uncharted, Mortal Kombat, Gravity Rush,… there are some awesome gams on the vita, just not as much as we’d like). In particular, it felt like action was lacking on the FPS front (except maybe Unit 13, which was a good surprise this year).
The people at Nihilistic Software are here to solve the issue, by bringing the Call of Duty franchise to the PS Vita.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is the episode that is supposed to bridge the gap between Black Ops and Black Ops2. According to the press release, it will have most of the elements that fans of the franchise enjoy (Create-a-Class, Perks, Prestige Levels, dual analog stick controls…), but will also take advantage of the Vita’s specific controls such as the touch screen for melee attacks. Hopefully that will not just be a gimmick, but actual real good use of the hardware. In addition to that, many multiplayer modes will be present, including a cool-sounding 4v4 team deathmatch over wifi. Some multiplayer maps will be apparently exclusive to the Vita.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is scheduled for November on the PS Vita
Enjoy the action packed trailer:
How many of you think the Vita lacks FPS? Is Call of Duty the franchise you were expecting to fill that void, or were you expecting something else?
