Lamia: We won't charge for Black Ops multiplayer
Treyarch's Mark Lamia has been quelling fears that Activision will start charging for Call of Duty multiplayer beginning with Black Ops.
Lamia went on to say that there will be no online pass required to play online giving fans of pre-owned games a let off as well.
The Treyarch studio head said: "I want to take that in the other direction and bring consumers really great reasons to keep their games, rather than trade them in. Multiplayer is critical to the success of this series. It has such tremendous staying power - there are millions of people playing Call of Duty every day. It's entertaining people on a magnitude that's mind-blowing and we work really hard to make sure it's supported for a long time."
He continued: "The effort that goes into the multiplayer is a living thing - we have a team that continues to work on it for World At War. We've done that for a long time and expect to do so for this game. We're going to support the hell out of Black Ops. That will be our focus post-release: making sure we keep our fans engaged, and hopefully as a result, they'll want to keep playing our game and won't want to trade it in."
