Mark Lamia, Studio Head at Treyarch, has offered up some awesome insight to the nearly 12-minute Black Ops 2 gameplay demo that he unveiled on-stage at E3 2012 earlier this morning.
Over at IGN, they've got the exclusive video, which you can find embedded above. The demo looks amazing, bringing both new gameplay aspects as well as classic Call of Duty action. Something that stood out to us was the element of player choice early on in the actual gameplay portion of the demo. Approaching a damaged overpass, the player has the choice of rappelling down and fighting the firefight on the ground or staying up top and playing overwatch with a sniper rifle.
At Microsoft's press conference, Lamia opted to snipe from above but in the gameplay playthrough above, he goes for rappelling down and fighting with his assault rifle.
The story in Black Ops 2 is built from the ground up with the assistance of David Goyer, best known for writing the story in The Dark Knight.
