Black Ops II preorders triple predecessor’s

Amazon UK reveals first-day preorder figure for Treyarch's new Call of Duty three times higher than that of 2010 original.


Call of Duty: Black Ops II has already bested the original in at least one category. Amazon UK said today that day-one preorder figures for Treyarch's just-announced shooter came in at three times higher than what the the original Call of Duty: Black Ops recorded in 2010.

Specific figures were not provided, and as of press time, Amazon's North American arm had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment on figures for the United States.

Black Ops II is in development at Treyarch by some 300 staffers, and is due out on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 13, 2012. The game will feature a campaign split in two. One half of the adventure will pick up immediately following the events of the original Black Ops, with players following the journey of Frank Woods. The other half of the campaign begins in the year 2025, a time when advanced weapon technologies rule supreme.

Additionally, Black Ops II will feature a competitive multiplayer component set in the year 2025, as well as the fan-favorite Zombies mode. For more on what's new in Black Ops II, check out GameSpot's Five Biggest Surprises About Call of Duty: Black Ops II preview feature.
