Black Ops 2: Treyarch Confirms 'Fun Party Game' Modes
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will return to the 'oddball fun' of Wager Matches with gambling-free 'Party Games'
Published on Aug 16, 2012
Black Ops 2 may have dropped CoD Points and gambling-based Wager Matches as a result, but Treyarch will still have equivalent "oddball" game modes in the future-set shooter, Treyarch Game Design Director David Vonderhaar has confirmed to NowGamer.
"In Black Ops they were called Wager Matches, and there was the 'gambling' component. But those somewhat oddball, out-of-context, just kind of fun game modes are actually going to make a fairly significant return in Black Ops 2, as what we call Party Games," Vonderhaar revealed.
Party Games aren't part of the official gamescom reveal, because Treyarch "just couldn't possibly get through everything," as well as the substantial first reveal of multiplayer Vonderhaar explained.
"Party games is how we think about that - we think about them as you and I just goofing off, having some fun in this arguably slightly silly game mode. We love making those game modes, and they'll be a part of this game too. They just don't have the mechanic of gambling in them in that way, because there are no CoD points."
