Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 gets UK launch

Professor Green, Louis Smith and more turn out for launch

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 got its Hollywood style launch last night with hundreds of events taking place around the world as consumers and celebs both turned out for the FPS hit

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 got its UK launch last night with events all around the country including a special London event which saw the likes of Professor Green, Jack Whitehall and Louis Smith all turn up to try out Treyarch's latest blockbuster follow up on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Black Ops 2 follows Mason Jnr. the son of the lead protagonist Mason Snr., in the first CoD: Black Ops. Set in the future gamers will be sent across the globe fighting wars using technology that could well be seen in the next 10-20 years.

HMV stores across the UK held special midnight launches with staff at Oxford Street getting fully into the swing of it by being reborn as the undead thanks to a collection of horrific foam injuries and some nifty contact lens work.

This was of course to honour the return of the Zombies co-op mode that was first made famous in Call of Duty: World at War. Treyarch has since expanded greatly on the format now turning it into a fully blown segmant of the game letting you build forts and customise your defenses.
