No campaign co-op in Black Ops

Solo shooter

Bucking the trend of shooters supporting cooperative play, Call of Duty: Black Ops will only offer solo play through its campaign.

MTV Multiplayer spoke with developer Treyarch about co-op in the Black Ops campaign. While it appears that the campaign won't support split-screen co-op, the developer promises alternate co-op modes.

"We're crafting unique co-op modes around that experience, but it is different than what people think," claims studio manager Mark Lamia.

Lamia didn't provide any details on these modes, but did reiterate that the campaign is being designed as a single player experience. No word on whether co-op will include split-screen in addition to online play.
