Activision and Treyarch have just announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops II is to get a live-action trailer helmed by visionary director Guy Ritchie and featuring Robert Downey Jr and YouTube favourite FPS Russia.
The trailer, lasting 60 seconds is an explosive high-octane piece, titled "Surprise,". It'll be airing in America tonight during Monday Night Football and the UK can expect to see it on TV during any high profile football games.
"With Call of Duty we are re-writing the rule-book of how games are marketed. This is more than a product launch, it's become a cultural event. And, what Treyarch has created this year with Call of Duty: Black Ops II is nothing short of the most innovative Call of Duty title yet," said Tim Ellis, CMO, Activision Publishing.
"So our mission is to meet this creativity with the most dynamic and far-reaching launch campaign we've ever done. Everything we do is geared toward reaching our fans - the best community in the world ? to celebrate with them the launch this November 13th."
This year, more than 15,000 retail outlets worldwide are scheduled to open their doors at midnight on Tuesday, November 13. Additionally, Activision will support the game through a global outdoor advertising campaign that will run in eight cities and across more than 450 media placements around the world with support from the media agencies OMD and MEC, respectively.
