New Patch, New Features!
Over the past month, we’ve been collecting feedback from the Call of Duty: Black Ops community, and we’ve been hard at work on a game update that continues to improve the online experience for our fans.
In addition to tuning gameplay and addressing issues voiced by the community, we’ve added a few new features we think you’re going to love:
- Over 400 brand new Contracts
- Practice Dummies (aka, AI bots) in offline Local Split Screen
- A new camera editing mode in Theater called "Dolly Cam"
- "Load Multiplayer by Default" option for the PS3
Over the next few days we’ll be releasing Intel pieces detailing each of these features, along with a few other helpful tips to make the most out of your gaming experience.
Practice Dummies in Split Screen
One of the most popular features new to Black Ops is Combat Training, where players test their skills against A.I. that we call Practice Dummies. This mode is great for players who want to improve their MP skills in a way that does not impact their rank progression or stats in their public profile. It’s also a fun way to play MP cooperatively with your friends to see how you stack up against the game’s A.I.
Since launch, there have been countless requests to have the same option to fight against Practice Dummies in offline play, and we’re delivering on those requests. Whether you’re playing solo or split screen with friends, you can now fill the match with A.I. enemies for a deeper offline MP experience.
Navigate to Multiplayer > Local > Split Screen and choose either Team Deathmatch or Free-For-All as your game mode. Select Edit Game Options and you’ll see the ability to add Practice Dummies to your match. Adjust their Difficulty from Recruit up to Veteran and start the match.
We hope you’ll enjoy this addition! Come back tomorrow for an in-depth look at the Dolly Cam – a new Theater editing feature that gives you more power to create seamless, dynamic videos with highly finessed camera editing controls.
I will try to add information about "Dolly Cam" to this blog tomorrow.
