Call of Duty: Black Ops II
What is Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Origins?
Written By
View author's profile

Could this mysterious trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Origins be teasing the next slab of DLC for Treyarch's latest entry in the FPS series? Or is it something else entirely? One thing's for sure; Black Ops II - Origins is officially a thing, but Activision is staying tight-lipped on what it is exactly.

There's no information other than what you see in the trailer, so expect a giant mech, some shadowy war-torn locales and probably some military hardware. Definitely some military hardware.

"Every story has a beginning... and an end," says the trailer. Could Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Origins be something to bookend the first Black Ops and the follow-up? And is this Treyarch's way of telling us that the Black Ops saga is finishing? Check out the vid below. We'll have more as it's announced.

It shows off past maps like Moon, Verruckt and Ascension and I believe people have said that the 4 characters in the trailer are Dempsy, Takeo, Nikolai and Richtofen but much younger than we've previously seen them so I think this is the 4th DLC and hopefully it will be full of content if it is indeed the final DLC seeing the Season pass states it includes 4 add-ons

Maybe they're doing the same thing they did with Black ops, Where the final DLC will be all Zombies content with re-makes of maps?

Just a guess, but I'm pretty sure it's the ending of the original Zombie character's story.

Just a guess but I have been deep into the zombies story since the start and I do believe that this will finish up the storyline. The 4 Characters displayed are the 4 characters behind the Zombie Easter Eggs. Ever since they released the letters and now this video it is pushing towards this theory. Can't wait to see what it actually is though.

@8 Those two links were "leaked" a few days ago, suggesting just that.

Belloy St. Germain is the name of a hotel in Paris. Perhaps more interestingly however it is also the name of 3 separate communes in the Somme region of France. As we all should know, The Somme was one of the bloodiest battles of the First World War (with over 1 million casualties between the Entente and Central Powers combined-that's potentially a lot of zombies). Towards the end of the trailer (when the guy is running and out of breath), the camera appears to be moving within a trench structure-which would obviously fit in with the first world war theory, as do the cryptic messages released last week that are dated 1917 (although the Somme was '16) and appear to be from Imperial Japan-an Allied (Entente) belligerent during World War One.

What doesn't add up however is that despite the 4 characters home nations all being belligerents in WW1, only Germany (Richtofen) fought on the Somme (and there are obviously no British or French characters) and also the fact that in the pic for "Belloy", the woman is wearing what looks to be a NSDAP (NAZI Party) Armband-there was no concept of Nazism at the time of the first world war.

No idea about the mech though, maybe something that Richtofen has brought back in time to win the war for Germany/The Central Powers?

Only time will tell, but with these two teasers within a week of one another and the supposed release date later this month, I'd wager we are going to find out for sure soon.

Also based on the the grid coordinates of the 3 prior BOII maps this one should theoretically be taking place in Northern/Central Europe or possibly Antarctica-the Somme region is right up in Northern France.

Revolution
Uprising
Vengeance

Just like the 1st 'Black Ops' was spelled FEAR with the map packs.

I guess this really could be the end...

You would think since its called Origins it would be more about the beginning than about the end.

Looks like a prequel to the zombies story. Like dating back to the WaW part of the story. Saw the 4 characters but younger. Definitely zombies related. Saw what looks like Verruchtt, Nacht, and the big dials from Shangrilah, and some Shi No Numa.....can't wait for the confirmation and more details

If this is an allstar zombies package then I would happily smack down 4000 for that season pass.

But only for zombies.

Let them release final DLC then and finally put all of this on sale for BO2. I do quite enjoy MP and zombies, but I never spent another $60 no any of the DLC's. I own all of them, but bought everything at half off and that's what I'm holding out for here=)

i think its a map pack with all maps before from WaW to BO1 and the new one, then the trailer shows pictures from the old maps moon, shi no numa and others, and the characters are the old one from WaW and BO1, nikolai, dempsey, takeo and richtofen (samantha), its olny a theory with the map pack, but i feel this an epic thing =)

@18 - Except the final map pack isn't called Origins. It's called Apocalypse. RUVA. Not to mention that "Over" is spelled with a fucking "E". Not a "U".

And no shit it's the end. It says "and an end" right in the fucking teaser video.

Common sense doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Oops, this isn't the End after all, just the Beginning. *McGrin*
