Maybe, if they're as open to modding as valve is.
Which they aren't, because it's activision.
So probably not. My guess is that they won't allow model changes so most of the skins will be new camos or just crap retextures. Can't see sounds being customisable either.
However custom zombie maps will most likely be a yes.
I think it won't be possible to skin because theyve put a lot of "customization" in the game like tons of attachments or putting clan tags and custom stickers on your gun so I don't think they ' ll open this system up to custom weapons. It will supposably be as or worse than MW2. But maybe it'll be possible to create custom maps since there are dedicated servers integrated.
Of course we wont be able to, as that way the game wont last as long before that community disperses and buys new games, therefore making that Activision fucktards more cash. It is that same reason Css has lasted this long, it was customisable, meaning that the community didn't get bored as quickly and kept on playing.
The customisation aspect of games got destroyed when companies realised that they could get more money out of people by releasing a new game every year that was the same as the last but with minor tweaks/additions that made it seem "fresh". Because of this it would be pointless to add customisation to these games because it would make that community stick around longer and make it harder for them to sell the "new" game the next year because people would be like "fuck it, why should I move over to that game when I can just keep on playing this one and use skins?"
That probably made no fucking sense lol.
^Nope, that totally made sense. Im really pissed that they bring out a "new" Call of Duty every year. The gameplay is always the same, graphics are not bad at all but tell me you saw a difference between the videos released of black ops and modern warfare 2.
They sell new "features" other games would receive via update for free and sell them as a full price game.
3 new maps for 15$ ? this is ridicoulous, you can get thousands of CSS maps for free. The only things that mayx keep me buying are the facts that
a) my friends are all buying the new CoD and I want to play with them (which is actually the most important thing in gaming imo)
b) When Black Ops will be out, the Multiplayer system of modern warfare 2 (which has problems with finding a game since the release) looses most of the players and finding a good game will be harder then ever. Thanks to the miss of dedicated server, fagtivision.
Hardly, why do you think WaW lacked so much innovation in Multiplayer. Activision wanted to keep it as close to COD 4 as possible because of the huge success. The one innovative thing they did in WaW (Zombies) ended up being the defining feature of the game for most. Bloody Activision.
I recon that Black Ops = Mw2 with different guns and still no dedis. It dosent matter if Black Ops is the shittiest thing since shit, all the 12 year old Codfags on the 360 will buy it because of the name, but if it was a stand alone game that wasn't part of a series, it wouldn't get sales because no one would want it because it wasn't Cod or Battlefeild.
Nope, not even close. The game is going to be like MW2, every one is going to get it, every one is going to love it and play it. 3 months will pass by when more than half of the players will realize that the game sucks.
