Ahead of the imminent release of Call of Duty: Block Ops II, quite possibly 2012’s most anticipated game, Activision has released a new star-studded advert titled “Surprise”, directed by Guy Ritchie (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Sherlock Holmes).
The ad effectively one-ups the company’s effort from last year for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, “The Vet & The n00b”, which starred Sam Worthington and Jonah Hill, and features well-known faces from a variety of backgrounds, including actors Robert Downey Jr. and The Intouchables star Omar Sy, alongside “YouTube celebs” iJustine and Dmitri a.k.a. FPSRussia.
Packed full of explosions, warfare, destruction and a variety of way to take out the enemy, the trailer does a good job of capturing the most prominent features of the Call of Duty series, just in case there’s anyone left that somehow has no idea of what it’s about.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II arrives globally for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC on November 13th.
