Both listings had the E3-announced game priced at a whopping $49.96, which makes it the most pricey game on the Vita, not unlike Uncharted: Golden Abyss and its original price markup. The release date reads December 31, 2012 – but you can be certain that’s there until an actual holiday date is pinned down.
Today, however, a press release was sent out from Sony offering up some official box art for Declassified (shown above), as well as some details about its features and story:
“Before the future could be won, history had to be written. Exposing that story exclusively on PlayStation Vita, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified explores original fiction in the Call of Duty: Black Ops universe with an all-new campaign of Special Ops missions.
Optimized for gamers on-the-go, Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified delivers the most intense handheld Call of Duty® experience to date, including both Special Ops Story mode and Multiplayer combat tailored for the PS Vita.”
So there you have it – the game is slated to have a campaign, spec-ops missions, and multiplayer – how fully-fledged these features will be has yet to be determined, but we’ll likely be approached with more as we draw nearer to its holiday 2012 launch.
Also of note – we don’t know who the developer is just yet, but recent rumblings hint that Neversoft, the guys who brought you the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games, may be the squad working on it.
