Rewrite History a Few Different Ways
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is coming. For those that aren’t aware, Treyarch and Raven Software are throwing the proverbial wrench in the spokes of the traditional COD formula. For the first time, you’ll be creating your character and making decisions that affect the outcome of the story. Raven Software’s Dan Vondrak recently spoke on the process of building a game around a campaign featuring multiple endings.
“When we started creating the story, we had multiple endings in mind right away. And that really helped. I think if you try to add those later, or if they just don’t fit the story you’re telling, then you shouldn’t add them,” Vondrak said. “But we knew right away that we wanted to do that. I absolutely loved the idea that we could [have a] little bit of homage to Black Ops 2 by having these [multiple endings].”
“I think even if Black Ops 2 didn’t have it, it would make perfect sense for our game to have it. But I loved that this game was trying to say, here’s all these great pieces of the entire Black Ops series that we loved, and we can kind of pay homage to those different pieces,” Vondrak added. “Some stories work well with multiple endings, and some stories don’t, and this one was built from the ground up with that in mind.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to launch on November 13th, 2020.
