Default Multi-teaming

Copy paste from Call of's BO:2 blog.

For some time now, fans have been asking for the ability to play a “multi-team” format – and with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, we’re happy to say that we’ve heard your requests and we’re serving it up on November 13.

Multi-Team is a new class of game modes in Black Ops 2. Instead of two factions going head-to-head, multiple teams of players take to the playing field at the same time, each looking to come out on top. Action is fast-paced and unrelenting, as competing teams battle each other for kills, objective points—and eventually—the win. Danger can come from all directions, testing even the most coordinated squads in their ability to communicate, hold positions, and watch flanks. The game supports up to 18 players, so you can have any combination of players and teams, up to six teams. It really brings group/team dynamics back to the battlefield to deal with multiple enemy teams.

At Gamescom, you’ll see some multi-TDM, but at launch, you’ll be able to play multi team game in several modes.

We’re also introducing Hardpoint, a mode inspired by traditional “king of the hill-style” games. Players have to capture a zone and defend it and you won’t score points if you’re not in it. What’s great is that the Hardpoint will move and relocate during the match, which means that the action is always shifting and players are descending on one spot.

During some of the original test phases for multi-format games, the studio took to them quickly and we started having a lot of fun. From that point, we knew it was going to be in the game. And we’re looking forward to giving players a sneak peak at Gamescom, and for everyone to play on November 13.
