Gotta say, the engine is really starting to show it's age. Next gen consoles cannot come soon enough for the COD series. The textures especially, look, well, pretty bad.
Also I just put 2+2 together watching this trailer, what is it with modern day shooters loving the point of view where the player puts their hand in front of their face to "cover" themselves? I literally think every single FPS in the past 2 years has done this.

Either I am becoming jaded, or the FPS genre is at a point something new seriously needs to be done in order to propel it forward. Definitely could be the former, but I think it is the latter.

COD is nothing more than a money generator now, COD4 was a true beast of a game, I bought the next three hoping to get more or the same but each version was worse than the last. BF3 is a very good fps.

I'm actually looking forward to this because I loved the original Black Ops. Infinity Ward's past two games have been big disappointments for me, which I never expected.

The engine has been showing its age for a while. It's pathetic that they're still using it, honestly. I have serious doubts as to whether or not Activision knows what route to take with the next generation of consoles in terms of Call of Duty. They're really going to get their rears kicked if they haven't been investing in one of their studios to make a brand new engine (or completely overhaul the Call of Duty engine).

I don't think the next gen consoles will matter when it comes to the engine. Activision knows they can copy and paste the same game without improving it much, if at all, so why would they bother putting the cash into a new engine? The only upgrade i see CoD getting with new consoles is that it'll finally run in an HD resolution.

It does look pretty darn horrid.

Also it looks dumber than usual.

Me too. Although the graphics are outdated, I think it's great that they're finally doing something other than World War II or "modern warfare". I'm really looking forward to it because I enjoyed playing Black Ops a lot. In my opinion, Treyarch does a better job at balancing multiplayer than Infinity Ward.

Also, they'd be shooting themselves in the head if they plan on using an updated version of the Infinity Ward engine. It's really old and other engines like CryENGINE 3 and Frostbite 2 are better in just about every way (other than being able to run at 60 FPS on current gen consoles).

Good at balancing? MW2 was one of the most unbalanced games ever I don't think it was a tough job and Black Ops was still unbalanced. The source materal (cod4) is still the best of all the games and that's sad because it's just went downhill in quality but up in sales.

I couldn't get more than halfway through that. So boring.

It is only a YouTube video. I will wait for the real thing before I call it horrid,dumb and I can care less what a console can or cannot handle.

I'm not so sure on all the vehicles either.. BF3's vehicle gameplay is awesome but COD's vehicles don't look so sweet in this trailer.

I was a huge Black Ops fan so I guess I will reserve judgement until I see more.

COD Black Ops was the first FPS that got me into FPS games to begin with, but since picking up both MW3 and BF3 I find myself spending my time playing BF3. The graphics engine (Frostbite 2) as well as the other effects, map sizes, vehicles, and the entire gaming experience is incredible. This said, I recognize the difference in the playing styles (MW3 arcady-like, BF3, more realistic), but prefer BF3 any day.

BF3 is a very good fps.


DICE's target audience, their telemetry works. Drawing in the COD players.
