Call of Duty: Black Ops takes players behind enemy lines in an entirely new chapter in the first-person action series. Black Ops is set during the Cold War era featuring at least two main characters, multiplayer that goes beyond the single-player story, and a two- to four-player co-op mode.

Call of Duty: Black Ops will take you behind enemy lines as a member of an elite special forces unit engaging in covert warfare, classified operations, and explosive conflicts across the globe. With access to exclusive weaponry and equipment, your actions will tip the balance during the most dangerous time period mankind has ever known.

Call of Duty: Black Ops will be compatible with 3D-ready HDTVs and 3D PCs utilizing state-of-the-art active shutter 3D glasses, delivering true depth of field and an unprecedented level of immersion that is perfectly suited for the Call of Duty action experience.  Call of Duty: Black Ops will be playable in both 3D and non-3D on the Xbox 360,  PS3 and PC.

Call of Duty: Black Ops for PC is NVIDIA 3D Vision-Ready and supports stereoscopic 3D gaming using 3D Vision active-shutter glasses and NVIDIA GeForce GPUs, while on Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles, 3D features require a compatible 3D-ready HD TV.

Singer/Voice-Actress Jane Runnalls is proving to be Hollywood’s newest ‘go-to’ voice as she is recruited once again for the featured female vocals on the anticipated video game “Call of Duty: Black Ops.” In addition to the game, Runnalls’ lyrical beauty will be heard on the Black Ops soundtrack available at Amazon.com and iTunes beginning November 9, 2010.

Black Ops marks the third Activision title for Runnalls, which include “Call of Duty: World at War” and “True Crime: New York City.” The songstress is quickly becoming renowned among composers and filmmakers for her sonorous voice, astounding vocal adaptability, and unshakeable work ethic.

A classically trained lyric soprano, Runnalls sings with a full orchestra to support the complex Black Ops original musical score written and composed by Sean Murray. To create the unique and mysterious vocals, some of the texts heard in the songs are actually phonetically transcribed from old Bulgarian chants.

Runnalls comments, "The music you'll hear in Black Ops is darker, grittier, and a lot scarier. It will definitely have you at the edge of your seat! Whereas Call of Duty 5 is set mainly in the Pacific, Japan, and Germany, Black Ops travels though countries all over the world, and the music adapts accordingly to each locale and the various moods. Sean Murray's score is more intricate and thrilling than ever."

“Call of Duty: Black Ops” takes you deep behind enemy lines into the world of deniable operations as a member of an elite special forces unit engaging in covert warfare, classified operations, and explosive conflicts across the globe. With access to a variety of exclusive weaponry and equipment, your actions will tip the balance during the most dangerous time period mankind has ever known.
