The most anticipated launch of the year is here, as Activision Publishing, Inc.  announced today that Call of Duty: Black Ops , which was developed by Treyarch, is now available at retail stores worldwide.  Call of Duty: Black Ops takes players around the globe, behind enemy lines, in the deepest and most intense Call of Duty experience ever.  The title raises the bar for online gameplay with an arsenal of features, including unprecedented player customization fueled by an all-new in-game currency system, new Wager Match gameplay modes, Theater video recording capabilities to capture favorite gameplay experiences, Combat Training and more.  The Call of Duty: Black Ops’ launch follows a record-setting number of midnight openings worldwide, as thousands of retail outlets opened their doors at midnight to deliver the first copies.

"From the beginning, we focused our entire studio on creating the most immersive Call of Duty experience ever," said Treyarch Studio Head Mark Lamia. "Treyarch wanted to give Call of Duty fans the ultimate entertainment package this year. Black Ops delivers an epic and cinematic single player experience, an incredibly deep multiplayer offering, and endless hours of co-op fun with Zombies."

The title’s launch culminates a record-setting campaign, as anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops has continued to soar surpassing previous pre-order records.  "We set a new record with reservations on Call of Duty: Black Ops with more than any other title in GameStop’s history," stated GameStop senior vice president of merchandising, Bob McKenzie.
