Treyarch has unveiled full details of the Wii version of Call of Duty: Black Ops, posting the news on the game’s official website.
The firm’s Anna Donton confirmed the title, which will include all the maps and game modes from the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, will also feature fully-fledged online co-op play.
Donton wrote: “We’re giving the fans the full single-player storyline, with huge maps and an amazing story that I think will really blow them away. We’re also back with 5v5 multiplayer, all maps and all game modes, including the newly introduced Wager Matches and Contracts.
“We pushed things a little harder this year, and can now confirm that the Wii version will have online Co-Op. We’re doing this through Black Ops’ new Combat Training mode and of course… zombies. That’s right, 4-player Co-Op Zombies will have its debut on the Wii this year.”
The Wii version, which Donton confirmed will feature full headset support for all online modes, will allow players to use the Classic Controller Pro.
“Don’t get me wrong, I love playing the game with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, especially after I customize the controls to my heart’s content,” said Donton. “But once we started supporting the Classic Controller Pro, I was hooked. Now I find myself switching back and forth between the two depending on my mood and what game mode I’m playing.”
The executive producer also confirmed the Wii game will offer a new ‘Allies’ system: “We’ve created a new “Allies” system that allows you to invite recent players to be your allies for text messaging, game invites and more without a need for code exchanges. We have more player customisation in Create a Class than ever before and we have enhanced party privacy options for players who want to set up their private matches with a little more control over who they allow in.”
