Recently some more trophies and achievements have been listed for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. We have long known that the game will take place in both the year 2025 and in the past, but until now, we didn’t know how those two settings were going to tie in together. We assumed that the chapters set in the past would be playable flashbacks or the like. Now it seems that things may be a bit more complicated. Here are the achievements:
Futurist: Complete all future levels in veteran.
Family Reunion: There are two futures.
Back in Time: Use a future weapon in the past.
Those seem pretty straightforward. It’s hard to read “back in time” in any other manner than the obvious literal interpretation. Apparently there’s going to be time travel in Black Ops 2, and the two eras involved in the game will interact in a much more solid fashion than simply through character flashbacks. It’s also interesting to see the reference to “two futures” in a game which we know will include branching storylines. Branching storylines within branching storylines? This adds yet another dimension to the upcoming game. Don’t forget to pre-order while there’s still time left; Black Ops 2 is coming out in less than a month on November 13th!
