Luckily this includes air support such as the SR-71 Blackbird stealth plane, as well as deadly attack helicopters and armoured personnel carriers.

Like any Call of Duty game the multiplayer will set the standard for all other console games, with enhanced customisation tools, playable vehicles and a revamped scoring system. There will also be a unique four-player co-operative mode, allowing you to experience some of the most mysterious theatres of war in astonishing new detail.

Key Features

* Retro Warfare: Call of Duty explodes the myths of the Cold War as you join a team of Black Ops soldiers caught up in the fight against communism in Vietnam and beyond.
* Ammu-Nation: Use new special ammo including an explosive crossbow, Dragon’s Breath flame rounds for your shotgun and a range of other period weapons.
* Twisted Metal: Take the controls of the iconic SR-71 Blackbird as you direct operations from high above or jump into an attack chopper in Vietnam for some close-up action.
* Online Perks: Create-a-Class 2.0 customisation tool lets you personalise your online battles even more, with new perks and revamped rules for killstreaks.
* Team Player: Online four-player co-operative mode lets you team up with fellow players as you take on the might of the Soviet military machine together
